The Kitchen: Waxing Away in LA

With all this talk of global warming and green living, I've fallen in love with old- fashioned wax paper. It's biodegradable, and more importantly, it's charming.

The easy ripping action beats petroleum-laden plastic wrap any day. No tugging, crinkling or cursing. Just clean, easy tearing. Now storing leftovers is fun and comforting because the folding action required to seal the deal is like making paper airplanes. Another perk: cheese experts, like Splendid Table host Lynne Rossetto Kasper, agree it's the preferable way to store cheese.

And you won't believe what else you can do with it. Just ask Readers Digest. Use it to decorate cakes, transform it into a spontaneous funnel, keep your cast iron rust free and much more!
