Cooking Tips

  • Cook in parchment paper: Cooking in parchment paper is very easy and reduces the amount of dirty dishes you need to clean afterwards.

o   To cook in parchment paper, fold a large piece in half. Place your seasoned ingredients in the middle of one of the halves. Fold over the top half of parchment and fold and crimp the edges to create a seal. Then simply bake in the oven at 350 – 375 degrees F for desired cooking time.

  •  Cooking on parchment paper: You can even line your frying pan or baking dishes with a piece of parchment and cook directly on top. It acts as a non-stick barrier so you won't need to cook with much oil and it makes clean-up easier.
