Ever have an "ah ha!" moment?  One of those where you really question your intelligence based on the idiotic way you've been doing something your entire life?  I had one last year while I was making stuffed peppers.  I was pregnant and tired and getting ready to haul out a big pot to pre-boil my peppers and I thought "Why the hell am I pre-cooking something that has to cook in the oven for like an hour anyway?"  Duh.

I had another one yesterday making huge quantities of cupcakes for my daughter's birthday.  I lined and sprayed all my pans and went to get a spoon to attempt to neatly fill the cups, knowing that after a few it would go completely to hell (I'm saying hell a LOT today...) and I would be cleaning the pans in a futile attempt to end up with clean liners.  And don't get me started on trying to dispense the batter evenly.  ANYWAY, I had an "ah ha!" moment and did this:

Do you see the stroke of brilliance?  I scraped the batter into a gallon Ziploc bag, cut off the corner and used it like a pastry bag to easily fill my liners cleanly and evenly!  Duh!
