No Comments 28 March 2013

We published a spring recipe round-up a couple of weeks ago, and it was so popular we thought we’d do it again! I peruse far too many blogs on a daily basis, and bookmark thousands of recipes for future cooking/baking projects, so it’s a lot of fun for me to curate a shortlist of some of the best to share with you!

Easter is right around the corner, so in case you haven’t figured out what you’re making for the holiday, these recipes can provide some guidance and inspiration. Not celebrating Easter? No worries! Most of these  recipes double as seasonal spring recipes too :)

Nonstick Cooking Surfaces

No Comments 12 February 2013

In the world of cooking, there are many options. Pan shape, size and use varies widely, depending on what you’re looking to do – but pan cooking surfaces also come in many different varieties.

Nonstick pots and pans are popular because they need little to no oil when cooking to keep foods from sticking, they disperse heat evenly, and they make for extremely simple clean up – just a bit of soap and water. On the downside, nonstick pans are easier to scratch, and often have a shorter lifespan than non-coated surfaces.

While nonstick surfaces behave similarly when used in everyday cooking, there are different types of nonstick coatings. We did a bit of digging to get to the bottom of the different pan types, and what they have to offer.
