Chef Planet Nonstick Ovenliner

There is nothing worse than when food in your oven drips down to the bottom of your oven. That meal may have smelled good the first time you cooked it, but as it bakes on the bottom of your oven, it doesn’t smell that great!

That is where Chef Planet Nonstick Ovenliner comes in. It is a time saver that allows you to never ever have to clean the bottom of your oven again. (Do I hear a woohoooo?). While you cook, it collects. It shields the bottom of your oven from splatters, spills, and just the overall mess that your find down there. The Nonstick Ovenliner is made for standard ovens, toasters, and microwaves too. The Chef Planet Nonstick Ovenliner comes in commercial grade thickness and is reusable on both sides. It fits ovens up to 30″ and may be trimmed to fit smaller ovens. It is even dishwasher safe! Best of all, it is made in the US.

It took me about 5 seconds to place this in my oven and it does exactly what they say it does! What more can you asked for? Since this is such a great product, I wanted to pass along a great contest they are doing.

Through the end of the year, you can submit a one-of-a-kind, mouthwatering recipe to Chef Planet’s Facebook page.  They are seeking recipes that drip, crumble and spill… recipes that leave your kitchen screaming for a cleaning, but your family and friends begging for more. Submissions should include an original recipe – one you created – and a photo of your delectable masterpiece. Submit main dishes, side dishes, appetizers and desserts. If you have a personal story pertaining to your recipe, we would love for you to share it.  Ten grand prize winners will be featured in the special edition Chef’s Planet® 10th anniversary cookbook. Additionally, the 10 finalists will receive a Baking Basket from Chef’s Planet®, including our Nonstick Ovenliner, Universal Nonstick Bakeliner and Ovenglove. Ten runner-ups will also be featured in the special edition 10th anniversary cookbook and receive a Gadget Basket from Chef’s Planet®,  including the Nonstick Ovenliner, 2-Cup Measuring Colander and Preptaxi® Food Scoop.
Great product, great contest!

Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes

Taste of Home is putting out an even more exciting and comprehensive cookbook, Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes. This is possibly the last cookbook you’ll need for a while because it has over 1,400 recipes in it! This hard-bound collection commemorates 20 years of the best submitted recipes. Each recipe has a very personal story of what it has meant to those who submitted it and their families. You’ll find everything from Saturday night appetizers to weeknight dinners to secret family recipes to potluck favorites. Chapters also include some of the most cherished magazine features including: Mom Made it Best, Our Favorite Contributor’s Meals, Mealtime Express, Cooking for One or Two, Grand Prize Winners, and more. Each recipe has been evaluated and selected by the Taste of Home test kitchen as the best of the best and can be recreated in your kitchen with readily accessible ingredients. Plus, there is practical, proven tips, storage charts, how-to photo’s, and at-a-glance prep and cook times.

This is the biggest cookbook I own. It is also one of my favorite ones too! The pictures in here are mouthwatering (I recommend NOT looking at this cookbook if you are hungry!). If you can’t find something in here to make, there is something wrong with you! The ingredients are easy to find, and the directions are easy to follow (which is why I am a fan of Taste Of Home). One of my favorite recipes in here is the “Low Country Grill”. You can make your entire meal on the grill with that recipe! My husband like the Firecracker Burgers and the Jalapeno Popper Burgers (can you see a theme here?).

If you can only have one cookbook in your kitchen, Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes is the one you want. If you order it before September 13, you can get it on the Taste Of Home website. You’ll get an exclusive Taste of Home Baking Guide Free and free shipping. After, September 13, all of your favorite retailers should carry Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes.

SOYJOY

As a person who is lactose intolerant, I’ve always got my eye out for soy products. However, soy has a of great nutritional value for the rest of you: rich in protein, fiber, antioxidants, and B vitamins. Keeping that in mind, SOYJOY is a fruit bar that is made with natural, minimally processed ingredients, such as ground whole soybeans and real fruit, and contain no trans fat or hydrogenated oils. They are launching their new and improved bars this month with a lighter, moister texture and naturally enhanced fruit flavor. They have also added two new flavors too. Banana and blueberry have a taste and aroma reminiscent of freshly baked banana nut or blueberry muffins. However, I do have to admit that I am still a fan of the strawberry ones. Strawberries happen to be my favorite food, so it is a tad hard to beat that out.

SOYJOY is also holding a great contest called “Second Chances”.  Visitors to their Facebook page can enter to win one of three $1,000 prizes by briefly telling their own personal story about a time they did not make the best first impression but, with a second chance, turned it into a joyous ending.  How cool is that?

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of SOYJOY and received samples of their nutritional bars to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central also sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
