Do you do this?
You buy an ingredient for a recipe or use, and then have way more than you need. It lingers...in your fridge, your cabinet, your pantry and slowly migrates toward the part of your kitchen until you find it, much later.
Two of my chronic offenders in my kitchen are:
Chocolate? Gone in no time, but cocoa powder, well, I hadn't found much of a regular use for it. But now I combine it with my favorite yogurt for a sweet treat that is wonderfully tasty, fat free and a quick chocolate fix.
