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.

Alexia Foods Oven Fries and Sides Giveaway!

As a Manhattan chef, Alex always wondered why there weren’t quality side dishes that achieved the same discerning standard as the main entrée. He knew others would agree, and believed he could create distinctive and inspired convenient everyday side dishes that lived up to what he might create in his own Greenpoint kitchen. Alex started by hand selecting the finest all-natural ingredients and producing only small batches making Alexia a hard to find favorite. Whether seasoning his Beauregard Sweets and Yukon Gold Potatoes or baking the perfect artisan Ciabatta and Focaccia breads, Alex always used real ingredients and put quality and taste first.

Alexia Foods is one of my favorites.  I have yet to try a product of theirs that my family did not love which is why I was excited to try out their Parmesan Lemon French Fries.  I’ll be honest — those are two flavors that I never expected on French Fries.  That being said, I’d like to quote my kids “those are yummy in my tummy”.  It gave the fries a little kick that wasn’t too overwhelming.  We had no leftover fries, so needless to say, they were a hit!

Since my family loves Alexia Foods so much, I have arranged for one lucky winner to win three (3) coupons for a FREE Alexia product.  Here’s what you need to do:
