I skipped doing something I really love today because I have so much blog work to do. Seems crazy that my ‘hobby’ has turned into such a passion. My Type A personality won’t let me do some half-way therefore, I get a little obsessed about whatever it is that I’m doing.

I was thinking I need an assistant, but then I realized I have two free minions that I could make persuade into helping. They’re my children. It’s totally okay to include blog work into their chore list, right? Well, even if you say ‘no’, they’re easily bribed persuaded with extra gaming time.

But, then, there’s the issue of ‘Will they do it the way I want it done?

I have control issues too

and that’s wayyyy too much to talk about in one blog post. 😉

So here I am bringing you this fabulous casserole because I found this really cool new vegetable cooking spray product. It’s PAM Cooking Spray’s “99% Less Residue” product! I have learned my lesson the hard way and had many a cake stick to the pan and be rendered un-presentable. I turned one into truffles and one into a trifle. But, that’s not what I wanted to present to my dinner guests!

Since receiving the PAM Cooking Spray 99% Less Residue to try, I’ve used it on many different cooking and baking projects. Even though I’m featuring a casserole, I’ve used it on homemade sourdough bread, cupcakes, muffins as well as savory casseroles and dishes. I did find it to leave less residue on my bakeware. Less residue equals less clean-up time; it makes it easier to clean up as well!

 

Do you know what else I found the product to do? It actually works better at releasing food from pans. Ultimately, it will last longer and cost less because you need less of it. Win. Win. New formulas of Original, Butter, and Baking PAM Cooking Sprays leave up to 99% less residue buildup than margarine or bargain-brand cooking spray. They still leave that great no-stick results. It also has zero calories per serving!

    How can you beat a dish that is both pasta AND pizza? Of course the whole family was thrilled with this one! Thank you for another great recipe to add to my collection!

    I actually think anyone of any age above six who walks into the room and pauses by my computer is a candidate for blog work — but yes, there is that Type Double A thing 🙂 My favorite pie is Blushing Peach — a mother in law recipe — just because DH is over the moon when it is served. That, of course, would fit just fine in the LeCreuset Pie Pan — and make him a very happy man!

  3. How did you know that I love all of these things? Yum! Thanks for sharing on the weekend re-Treat link party! Hope to see you again Thurs at 7PM EST.
