Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Cooling rack alternatives
If you lack a wire cooling rack for baked goods, brown paper bag or brown cardboard make good substitutes! The brown paper will absorb excess grease and moisture; just spread your baked goods out on it! This works better for light things like muffins or cookies (I haven't tried it with, say, a loaf of bread).

More ways with cooling racks:
Use to drain meatballs (especially useful for bulk batches of meatballs!)
Allow leftover homemade pizza to cool on racks to avoid soggy crusts
Warm tortillas over pot of beans using cooling rack (see second comment on post)
Other uses for grocery bags (paper and plastic)
