PaperChef Cooking with Parchment

I always say that I don’t cook. It’s a running joke in my family about me and cooking. In all seriousness I have been getting a lot better and cooking more and more in the past year. Paper Chef asked me to try out a bunch of their parchment products so it was a good excuse to try some new things.  

I got to thinking about what I wanted to make. I didn’t really want to do a traditional cupcake with their baking cups, I wanted something a little different. We decided that we were going to make birds nests and mini pumpkin pies. My friend Anna and her daughter came over and we got to work.

The first thing We made were the birds nests. We decided to make them with the Tulip Cups since we needed a little more room. It was our first time making them so they weren’t perfect but they were really good. I wasn’t sure how the cups were going to hold up, but they did really well. We even had extra room that we could have added more hashbrowns.

I really liked the look of the Lotus cups, so I couldn’t wait to try them out. We decided to make mini pumpkin pies with them. I usually make pumpkin pie with no crust when it’s just for me, but with crust when it’s for others. We did learn that we cut the circles to small so they turned out a lot smaller than they were supposed to but oh well, they were good anyway. Baking them in the Lotus cups was a great idea as it is perfect for parties. All of us loved the pies, and the girls ate them up like crazy.

A few nights later I used the regular baking cups that Paper Chef has to make two things. For our main course of dinner I made Chorizo Balls and for dessert I made Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. The cups were perfect for both especially the Chorizo Balls as they held in all the juices so when you are eating them they are just right.

 I was also sent some parchment paper and cooking bags. I have not had a chance to use them yet but I will be soon and can’t wait. I definitely recommend using Paper Chef products for your next cooking or baking adventure. You can buy them online or check out their locations by going on their website.
