While putting together the appetizers at a recent potluck, I ended up needing several cookie sheets. Some were mine, while others were borrowed. When I finished baking the prosciutto pinwheels, I had a really hard time figuring out which were my three cookie sheets. Next time I attend a potluck — or bring any sort of cooking dish to a party — I'll label my cookie sheets and baking pans.
To ensure that you don't lose or mix-up pans, write your first initial on the bottom of the pan with a black sharpie. If you aren't baking the dish in the oven, put a small piece of masking tape on the bottom and write your initials on the tape.
