{Giveaway} $100 Cooking.com Gift Card


A couple of weeks ago I received this lovely PAM® Cooking Spray in the mail. I was eager to try it and see if it really was better than the generic brand I have been buying for years. 

If you follow this blog regularly, you may have noticed my favorite generic brand hanging out in a lot of my tutorial pictures. I buy it because it’s cheap, and I go through it like crazy with all of the cooking and baking that I do. Spending the extra money to buy the name brand PAM Cooking Spray always seemed luxurious and unneeded.  

Until I tried the spray. 

It’s better. A LOT better than the generic brand I am used to. PAM Cooking Spray has recently been improved and is said to now be 70% better than the generic brand. 

It is, my friends. 

I have been using PAM Spray for all of my cooking needs this past week and I am seriously amazed at how much better it works. My scrambled eggs don’t fasten themselves to the pan with a vengeance. Cookies slide off the pan with ease.
I baked a batch of French Bread too long, and it left a crispy mess all over my pans. Once I got the dirty caked-on pans in the sink I grabbed my pick ax (ok, it was really just my scrub brush) and readied myself to get rid of the mess. Much to my surprise, the mess came off of the pan with ease and took much less time to clean than usual. Which freed up my schedule so I could bury my pick ax in the back yard. 

Why use a pick ax when you can use PAM Cooking Spray, right?

Besides making clean up much easier, PAM Cooking Spray comes with a great nozzle that sprays evenly and well. I have been frustrated in the past with my generic spray nozzle backing up and then breaking off before I had used the entire can. 

Why I didn’t try PAM Cooking Spray before now is a mystery. 🙂

Another recipe I made this week using PAM Cooking Spray was Stuffed Jumbo Shells. I have experienced treacherous clean up with this recipe in the past and was eager to see how PAM would handle this circumstance. I sprayed the pan well, assembled the ingredients, let it bake, and then we enjoyed this yummy recipe for dinner. It tasted great and the clean up was seriously a breeze.

No pick ax necessary. 

Which is lucky since I buried the thing in the back yard. 

PAM Cooking Spray, ladies and gentlemen. 

I highly recommend it.

    I love all the Pam sprays and use them all the time. Today I used Pam for Baking to spray the pan before baking a Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake. It came out of all the nooks and crannies of the pan perfectly!

    I use Pam for everything that goes into the oven, AND we use the Grilling Pam for our BBQ in the summer! It's great when Costco has coupons on the bigger spray bottles as well!

    Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on your favorite bread. Spray one side with Pam and place that side down in a warming skillet. Now spray the upside of the bread and cook over medium heat until both sides are golden brown and peanut butter is warm and creamy! Yummy

    I've been browsing online greater than three hours these days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet shall be much more useful than ever before.
