Do you oil your pan before/after heating?

2019-06-14 18:16:00 chefenvy

Hi Chowhounds,

Happy Friday! I had a question I wanted to pose to all of you home and professional cooks: When do you oil your pan?

The Easy Black forest cake recipe

2019-06-10 19:47:00 chefenvy

My favorite recipe for black forest cake for so many reasons: The chocolate layers are so moist, they will melt in your mouth, the combination of chocolate, cherries, and softly whipped cream are to-die-for, and although it takes a few steps to make, each step is easy and simple to Reading More May Cause Envy…

I read somewhere that hamburgers will become more tough and chewy when you press the meat down too much when forming a patty…however it often gets smashed before you get home.

Radish recipes?

2019-06-09 03:19:00 chefenvy

I’ve recently noticed watermelon and other different types of radishes in recipe pictures, and have had them firsthand. Their visual appeal surpassed their taste in my experience.

I made Archer’s Farm frozen spanakopita according to the instructions on the back of the box and they came out like this. The instructions say to bake frozen at 425 for 12-14 minutes.
