I made this little apron with a snap on kitchen timer so no matter where you go around the house with your apron, you will always hear the beep of the timer. Your baking will never be overcooked! I've seen clip on timers but those sometimes fall off or get lost. By using a very secure snap this timer is guaranteed to stay put so you won't have any more excuses for bad cooking. The timer snaps off when it's time to throw the apron in the wash.
This handy utility apron would make a great gift for the busy cook in your life who likes to multi task but also wants to make sure their baking or cooking doesn't burn!
If you like this idea, but would rather bake than sew, you can buy this handy apron from my etsy shop at : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6451315
