Season Your Pans for Non Stick Cooking


Nothing is more frustrating than trying to cook a delicious meal and having it stick to the bottom of the pan. A well season or cured pan will make cooking more fun, easier to clean and create better tasting food. There is a saying in the restaurant business; Hot pan Ė Cold oil. Meaning never put the oil in a cold pan and then heat it up. By heating the pan first and then adding the oil, then immediately the food, youíll have much less sticking. Furthermore if you season the pan when you first purchase it, you will have even better results.

Cooking Lobster at Home


Lobster has always be one of those extravagant meals which few people ever try because of the high cost. With restaurants paying thirty dollars a pound, by the time they put their markup on it, youíre easily paying sixty dollars for a ten ounce tail. This high cost leaves lobster dinners for the well-to do or at least only for special occasions. But, this doesnít have to be. With more and more retail store offering lobster, you can create a romantic dinner for two at a reasonable price. If you buy two eight ounce tails for thirty dollars, thatís only fifteen dollars a person. Add a starch and vegetable and itís still cheaper than going out to dinner and having steak or even chicken. Turn the lights down low, add a candle and ship the kidís off to grandmaís house.
