The Trick to Keep Parchment Paper from Rolling Up

I learned this trick a couple years ago and while it’s only two simple steps, it is the true definition of a Healthy Kitchen Hack: an ‘aha idea’ that makes healthy meals and healthy living a snap.

2. Smooth the paper flat. Watch: It won’t roll up!
