Some cooking tips...

As I was making lunch yesterday at the Senior Center, I was wishing I had some of my reusable parchment paper there.   When you can just throw a sheet of this on a pan, then bake some pork chops and nothing sticks, cleanup is a breeze, it's almost a 'need to have' item.

My sister actually gave me my first sheet last year, and I promptly went out and bought another one.   I do have a Silpat that I love, but have never dared throw it in the dishwasher, which is what I do with these when I don't feel like washing them by hand.

You see I made some pork the other day for a batch of Chile Verde,
and I was tired when I finished, so I threw the sheet into the dishwasher, cleaned up the stove and sat down for a well deserved rest.
As you can see, just lift off that parchment paper, and a quick wash and the pan is clean.   And the reusable paper goes into the dishwasher or a pan of hot soapy water, your choice.

  1. I have never tried them- but I will now that you have convinced me-lol

    1. I would never have believed just how much I use my sheets. And since I'm just a tad 'lazy', I love being able to throw them in the dishwasher if I feel like it. Best part is the cleanup on my sheet pans or whatever I'm using, cause there isn't much to clean up.
