(NAPSA) - Dear Pat and Betty:
With work, kids and everything else vying for my time, I'm looking for an easy way to prepare a hearty family meal. Any suggestions?
We hear that question often, so you're not alone. Hearty and healthy meals are always preferable to fast food, and they're easy to prepare with Reynolds Oven Bags. Perfect for small and large cuts of meat, oven bags hold in moisture, allowing the meat to cook to tender perfection in its natural juices. Just place your meat, vegetables and seasonings in the bag and close it with the nylon tie that comes inside the box. Pop it in the oven, and your delicious dinner cooks with no tending, turning or basting. That gives you time to focus on other activities while dinner is cooking. Then after dinner, clean up is a snap. You just throw the bag away. There's no messy pan to scrub! Instead, you can spend that time relaxing with your family. Try this easy recipe for Savory Beef Roast.
