Ridiculously Simple Tip: Pre-Portioned Butter

Here's a quick tip that we just started implementing in our household. When we take out a new stick of butter, we immediately cut it into tablespoon sized slices (you can use the guidelines on the wrapper to help figure out how big your slices should be). Since most ingredients call for butter in tablespoons (or half tablespoons), it makes it really easy to just grab the pat and go. A little bit of simple prep now will save you time later!

I don't know why I didn't think of this, either. It lets me measure out butter while also using my cute butter dish more.

i never thought of that. guess i should get a butter holder. i usually just keep the sticks in the box and then they get messy and hard to get out when i need stick butter for baking.
