Wanna make Bacon?? How about Fried Chicken? Doughnuts? Here are some tips and tricks I have found to be very helpful in keeping my kitchen paper free and still be able to enjoy fried things. (In moderation of course-wink wink!!)
I have had a few questions from some of my amazing readers about how to deal with bacon and still have a paper-free kitchen. I have come up with a few ideas.

I like this idea for a few reasons-
1. When you bake bacon it doesn't shrivel up and cooks flat.
2. it won’t fill your house with smoke.
3 Baking it on your broiler pan will help all the grease to render off the bacon and reserve it in the bottom. You can pour it into a glass jar and save the bacon grease for future baking needs.
4. Also you can leave the bacon on the broiler pan for a few minutes after you pull it out f the oven to it can drain. No need for paper towels

Frying food- Fired Chicken, Onion Rings Etc.
Place a wire rack in a baking sheet. It will help the oil to drip off the food and it won’t get soggy like on a paper towel.
I’m sure you are thinking “this is all well and good Hona but that’s a big mess to clean up!” Well not so fast…
To clean these greasy pans put a few drops of dish soap right in the greasy pan BEFORE you add any water. Work into a lather. It will feel silky and turn a whitish color. Rinse the pan in hot hot hot water. Get as much water off as possible and add a bit more dish soap. Repeat a few more times until the pan is grease free. It usually take 3 rounds for me to get the pan clean.
To get the grease off your hand I have had more success using hand soap rather then dish soap. It tends to rinse off my skin a bit faster.
Look back in a few days for even more tips on how to make your Kitchen Paper Free!!!
