Years ago I scoffed at people who used parchment paper when they baked. Why would you do that? Isn't it a waste of time?
Then I worked a Foods class where the teacher encouraged kids to use parchment, and I had to eat my words. Now? I love the stuff.
Some time ago I was baking muffins and decided to try Paper Chef's muffin cups. I even blogged about it somewhere here, because I was so thrilled to finally find cups that just separated right off the muffin, unlike the usual paper cups that take half of the muffin with it. Paper Chef's parchment cups just come right off, leaving a perfect muffin behind.
I was hooked. So hooked I ran out and bought Paper Chef's parchment paper and cooking bags, which have always intrigued me. Who says that you have to buy those bags of microwave popcorn with all those nasty chemicals in them? Make your own! Just toss 1/2 cup popcorn kernels in a Paper Chef parchment bag, fold it shut, then microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Want to add seasonings? Go look at some of these yummy combinations- chocolate and sea salt, or cayenne and lime...you could go crazy!
Whether you want to line pans or steam food, Paper Chef's products are amazing, and this is why I approached them to sponsor me to go Blissdom Canada. I use their products all the time, so it would be perfect, right?
Make sure to drop by the Paper Chef site to look around at all the yummy recipe goodness. There's so many things you can do with parchment! Also, for the duration of Blissdom Canada, I have a great contest running!
