i use a very llight coating of grease in silicone cookware- it is easier to get cakes etc out as you can sort of break the seal at the edge because the silicone is so mobile. the only thing i learnt the hard way is that it is a good idea to place the silicone cake pans on a scone tray etc as when the mixture is soft they are hard to handle- thats probably obvious for most of you cooks but i rarely cook cakes and the silcone trays i bought did not have any instructions with them, i just bought them as i thought they would take up less room in the cupboard and i had decided to make some individual crust less quiche, frittas and muffins etc

just found this thread- there are some amazing cooks here- i love Lhaksa!

anyone have any nice salad dressing idea! i remember in the US having a really nice tangy tomato dressing but have not been able to find anything similar and my attempts to invent have not been very successful

thanks a lot grappers- all of these look really yummy and i especially like the sound of the pesto and basil one, the oriental and the tarragon.

i do have to watch my calories but i would rather have a small amount of a decent real dressing than the really artificial ones they market as healthy- they spoil a great meal! and to be honest most of the ready made are are a bit boring- these look great- i don't know how to print a post off so i will just use the snipping tool to cut out the recipes- then start from the top and work down trying them out!
