IKEA has been getting a lot of design attention lately, but can we please take a moment to talk about their Easy Recipe Series instead of those godforsaken Frakta bags? Thank you.
Here's the deal. Instead of opening a bag of IKEA frozen shrimp, scratching your head for a good 10 minutes trying to figure out how to cook and season them, you can now put your raw ingredients onto a visually pleasing piece of paper, crumble everything up and cook. Observe:

I'm a fan for multiple reasons:
1) The sheets are printed with food safe ink, which takes care of my main concern right off the bat.
2) IKEA then takes it a step further and makes the sheets parchment paper, a material you could already be using to cook your meal in the oven.
3) Since everything folds up nicely, there's presumably minimal mess.
4) To top it off, the layouts are right in line with my personal kitchen OCD. Just look at that top notch organization. Each individual ravioli is well tended to.
Buy all the freaking Frakta bags you want. Turn them into accessories or sneakers, for all I care. I'll be laughing at you from afar while eating my perfectly seasoned salmon.
