I love to cook but I hate to clean up – especially if I make something sticky or burn something. I was very excited to try a couple new products from COOKINA. The first one is the COOKINA Cuisine Reusable Cooking Sheet. The COOKINA Cuisine is an innovative product that creates a nonstick, easy-to-clean and healthy cooking & baking experience. Ideal for using as an alternative to aluminum foil, parchment and wax paper, users can place the cooking sheet on a baking tray or pan to bake recipes without having to use oil of needing to clean the tray and oven afterwards.
What I liked most about the COOKINA Cuisine Reusable Cooking Sheet is that you don’t need to use oil or butter ~ so that saves me a few calories. It is also reusable and does not hold food odors or flavors from past items. I use it on a baking sheet most of the time. It helps cook food evenly.
The second product was the COOKINA Gard Oven Protector is a toxin-free, easy-to-use product that helps home cooks keep the oven clean with minimal effort. Home cooks need not worry about cleaning the oven after each use with this product. Users can simply place the oven protector on the bottom of the oven to catch every spill and splatter for an easier clean-up, without any odor.
I hate when you are baking and the pie overflows or the cheese from a pizza drip onto the bottom of your over. I have a self cleaning oven but it smells when I clean it and I still have to wipe it out. With the Gard Oven Protector you just wipe it clean or soak it in soapy water. It can be cut to fit your gas ovens, electric ovens, and microwaves. In our oven I just placed it under the element. Once a week I pull it out and wash it. I love it!
Here is an easy recipe provide from COOKINA to use your COOKINA Cuisine Reusable Cooking Sheet.
Salted Macadamia Nut Brittle courtesy of COOKINA
(Makes 1 lb. of brittle)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light – colored corn syrup
- 1 1/2 cups lightly toasted and crushed Macadamia nuts
- ½ tsp. coarse salt
- Combine the sugar and corn syrup in a heavy bottomed pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat up to high and cook until the bubbles get smaller and the mixture turns a light amber color, about 10 minutes.
- Stir in the nuts and cook for 1 more minute. Quickly pour the mixture onto a baking pan lined with a COOKINA® Cuisine sheet and spread it out evenly with a spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle salt throughout before mixture cools. Let cool and break into pieces.
