How To Grease and Flour A Baking Pan


So many people think that spraying a pan with a non-stick spray is an adequate substitution for greasing and flouring a pan. It isn’t. A well greased, floured and lined pan will allow any baked good to pop right out without sticking. Non-sticks are fine for cooking meats, but for baking, you really want to do it the old fashioned way.

Some people use butter or lard. My choice is Crisco, which is vegetable shortening (ingredients: soybean oil, fully hydrogenated cottonseed oil, partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils, mono and digycelerides, TBHQ and citrus acids (antioxidants)).


Cut a piece of wax paper, dip it into the Crisco can.
Thoroughly coat the sides of your pan, paying particular attention to the corners.


You should have a light coast of vegetable oil, so light that you can easily see the pan underneath.


Drop in a dab of flour.


Shake the flour about the pan. Since flour particles or clouds may come out of the pan, it is best to do this over the sink.


Your pan should be completely coated with a thin flour wall. You don’t want bare pan anywhere.


If you need to line the pan, cut a piece of wax paper larger than your pan.
Place your pan on top of the wax paper, and score the outline of the pan with scissors.
Cut out the wax paper along the score marks.
(Note, this can be done prior to greasing and flouring.)


Insert the cut out wax paper into the bottom of your pan.

You are now ready for batter!

Cucumber Caprese Salad Recipe

Hubby came up with this idea years ago using the bounty that came from our CSA. It is a simple recipe that is easy to put together. It is an awesome use of fresh vegetables, great any time of year!!



We make this all. the. time. I make it at least twice per week in the summer as we usually have a load of fresh cukes, fresh tomatoes, fresh oregano, and fresh basil growing in my garden. I just make certain I chop up the fresh basil fine and substitute for the dry basil in the recipe.

We also make this fairly regularly in the winter as cucumbers are reasonably priced, and there is always some sort of tomato on sale. Wwhile I like cherry tomatoes best in this recipe, I will cut up beefsteak, hothouse, Roma, etc into small bite-sized pieces and use them – especially when on sale!

Cucumber Caprese Salad Recipe Notes:

• Another thing – do not be afraid to change the quantitles of anything. Like balsamic vinegar? Add more! Like cucumbers? Add more. This recipe is very forgiving and I play with the quanities and ratios contantly.

• Have a big crowd? This recipe doubles and triples beautifully. Just be aware of your container size for mixing.

• This will keep well for a few days in the fridge. Along about day three the mozzerella starts to get really soft, so try not to let it go past then.

Baileys & Kahlua Iced Coffee Shake Recipe

I would like to start with some disclosure: I do not like Kahlua. I do like Baileys. With that in mind, my review: This is one of the best drinks I have ever had!

And I was not alone in this opinion. We (this is the royal “we” because this was alllllll hubby) served it at a get together recently. The initial reaction by most was, “No thanks” until the “Mmmmmms” and the eyes rolling back in the head from the sheer delight on our tongues from those in the initial pour convinced the initial naysayers to give it a go. This was a universal hit! Of the 10 people that tried it, 10 people loved it!
