When making things like ice cream or salad dressing, a slow stream of liquid sometimes has to be added to a bowl while whisking. However, if one hand is whisking and the other hand is pouring, that leaves no hands to hold the bowl in place. No matter, here's what you do: take a kitchen towel and hold the top left-hand corner and the bottom right-hand corner in your hands. Twist to form a long roll and wrap the roll into a circle on your kitchen counter. Nest the mixing bowl in the middle of the circle and start whisking. The bowl will stay perfectly in place.
