The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri

Can I tell you how much I love my 8″ Green Earth Frying Pan ? It is one of the first pans on the market that is non-stick but also free of PTFE, PFOA, and other harmful chemicals. You don’t have to worry about this pan giving off toxic fumes! It is made with a durable scratch resistant ceramic. The elevated texture on the plan creates air pockets which distribute the heat underneath food to enhance cooking. We have found that our food cooks quicker with this pan! The patterned surface also helps prevent food from bonding for superior non-stick performance and easy cleaning. There is also a silicon coated handle. It is even induction stove safe!

We’ve tested this out several times. Nothing we’ve made has stuck to this. I can only recommend these frying pans for your kitchen!

I love this baking cookbook. All the ingredients are easily found in your pantry. I also love some of the little tips in here — like have warm ingredients when making cookies. I never thought about my eggs needing to be room temperature! They have recipes for things you are actually going to make – like Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

I highly recommend checking out The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking.
