Mise en place
Mise en place (pronounced mez an plase) is a French word that translates to put in place.
What does this have to do with baking?
In the kitchen the first step to a successful dish is to get your Mise en place together or in other words put your ingredients in place ahead of time.
Make sure you are being precise with your Mise en place....measure carefully...level off your flour and use the proper measuring cups for wet/dry ingredients.
This will help keep you on track and organized. You wont have to quickly shut off the mixer while you measure out your shortening.
It is less stressful to bake when you have your Mise en place ... in place!
