From my Kitchen… 

 

—I recently prepared a double recipe of the Crust-less Quiche recipe in the 9inch square pan. Even with the turntable turned off, it cooked nicely on the Low-Mix combination, rotating the dish once. The Egg Bake cut nicely with the narrow silicone spatula and removed from the dish easily with the wide spatula. A 13×9-inch pan of caramel rolls was prepared in the deep 10.5-inch silicone pan and it baked perfectly on the convection setting. Most things that cook in a 13×9-inch pan can be cooked in the deep round silicone pan and then it turns freely in the ovens with turntables. 

—In a recent class, several participants were getting together one evening for dinner and they were each making something from one of the microwave-convection cookbooks that they had just purchased. I was not there long enough to hear about their results, but I thought what a good way to learn together and share cooking experiences. Soups and casseroles are great for winter dining. Make extras and freeze in meal-sized quantities for enjoying at another meal.
