You never thought this was a topic that deserved it's own blog post did you? Well apparently this is a very important thing, and it does in fact need it's own blog post. You're going to be as bewildered as I was, I promise.
Last night Derek and I invited our friends over for dessert and family home evening. We were having brownies and my friend Julia offered to cut them. I handed her a knife from our knife drawer and then a brownie massacre started happening. She quickly informed me that if we had a plastic knife, the brownies would cut smoothly, and that the rest of the pan would be saved.
Astonished, I quickly seized her a plastic knife from our cabinet, and then she proved to me that cutting brownies with a plastic knife vs a metal knife is always the proper way to cut brownies. Who knew there was a way to prevent brownie crumbs from chunking on your knife everywhere?! Don't believe me? Let the results speak for themselves!
