Works for me Wednesday


It's time for another Works for me Wednesday post! My tip for today is really an easy one, but since it took me so long to try this, I thought some of you might need to hear it too.
Have you ever used parchment paper? I never did until about 5 years ago, but now I am hooked! It prevents things from sticking and has saved me from cleaning some messy pans. I use it frequently when baking rolls or biscuits. I've also used it when cooking fish or chicken - just lay it on the pan, put your food on it and cook as usual. You can also line pans when baking brownies or cakes. If you've never tried it, see how it works for you!

My dear grandmother showed me the wonders of this years ago & I do mean years. When she was first teaching me to cook, she told me to never be without it!.:)

I've always used parchment paper when baking rolls or biscuits but never thought about using it to cook fish or meat, as you have suggested. I must try it. Thanks for your tip, Mari.

Love it too! I always cut it to size with scissors since I can't get it to tear neatly with the package teeth. Look inside your Reynold's parchment paper box--mine always have a $1 off 2 coupon printed on the inside lid.

OK, I'm the only one who doesn't use it....but I will! don't know why I haven't before, I guess it seemed like a luxury, - how silly! I'm on my way out to buy some!

I need to confess that I've never used this before. It sounds like it really would save time, though. I honestly didn't know that you could put "paper" in the oven. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try it soon.

And if you are spray painting kids crafts, they don't stick to the paper when they are dry!

Parchment paper is a lifesaver when it's time to do the dishes! You gave me some new ideas to use it. Thanks!

THX for that tip Mari! I've known about wax paper, not sure when I first heard of it, or used it, but the best place to buy it at the cheapest price is: "The Dollar Giant" or any "Dollar Store" I imagine.
