I'm heading to shower before heading off to work. I'm making sweet dough tonight. Hooray for the new flour sifter.

It's nice to know I am not the only one who still uses a flour sifter.

I am getting ready to head out to my pain program. Can't believe it is down to the last two weeks! And my body needs the morning workout, having not been able to get to the pool in over a week.

BTW, I actually use two sifters - one for gluten free and one for regular flours.

I almost never use a sifter unless the recipe calls for sifted flour.

I sift when the recipe calls for it. Otherwise I just fluff with a fork after measuring.

I don't own a sifter. I use a sieve when I make sponge cake.

At work (Army Dining Facility) we get the crappiest flour ever. I sift through a 25 lbs bag almost every night not just for measurement reasons also for keeping crap out of my products.
