Secrets of Success

Cooking Spray



Cooking Spray has become my best friend. In addition to using for stove top cooking, I have now discovered that if I spray it on things like oven fries, potato wedges, chicken strips, and other food items that are meant to be fried instead of baked, the cooking spray will crisp them up and leave them moist. It is a healthier and still tasty way to serve my kids' convenience foods.

Cooking spray. If you prefer to make it yourself, you can add oil oilor any other oil to a pump sold by Pampered Chef.

  • If you're using cooking sprays, I hope you make your own by putting oil in a spray mister bottle (you can buy them almost anywhere now). Commercial brands like Pam contain propellant-nasty chemicals.

  • Spraying your plastic storage bowls, for example Tupperware, before adding spaghetti sauce will help prevent them from getting stained.

  • Definitely cuts down on the amount of oil that I use. And the buttery flavor ones are great on Vegies or baked fish or chicken. - by LSIG14

  • I discovered that if I spray my bread with it before I fix my grilled cheese sandwiches, they get crispy just like I like them. - by SEDONACAT
    I agree, I get nervous when my supply starts to dwindle. I only use oil every once in a while. You can't really tell the difference anyway, so might as well be healthy! - by AKAFIT
