Small, but mighty
I've thought about this quite a bit, hoping to write about some miracle kitchen gadget that would have you all transfixed. But, fact is, my little kitchen secret is indeed little and unassuming: the humble 1/2 cup prep bowl. It's all about portion control. I can plop anything in there and know that I've got 1/2 a cup and that that's plenty big to satisfy my appetite. Most often these get used for fruit, yogurt, dry cereal, crackers and nuts (I only fill it half way for nuts). By putting the snack item in a little bowl immediately, I avoid reaching in the box for just one more handful.
If you ever come across more stylish half cup prep bowls on the internet, let me know.
