(NAPSA) - Dear Pat and Betty:
,i>I spend so much time cleaning up after my holiday meals. How can I get out of the kitchen faster?
A. After preparing a holiday meal, no one wants to spend additional time scrubbing dirty pans. We prevent cleanup by lining our pans and cookie sheets with Reynolds Wrap(r) Release(r) Non-Stick Foil. You'll no longer have burned-on bits of food to scour or pans to soak, releasing you from the kitchen faster! Simply place your food against the non-stick (dull) side, and cheesy side dishes or gooey desserts will lift right off. And your holiday fare stays beautiful for serving because even the stickiest foods won't stick to Release foil. Try our Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe to see how easy it is to create an elegant holiday dish without the mess.
Dear Pat and Betty:
What's the best way to cook my holiday turkey?
A. Whether you're a first-timer or an experienced cook, Reynolds(r) Oven Bags are the secret ingredient to your best turkey ever. The oven bag is the "worry-free" way to cook a holiday turkey. There's no tending because the turkey bastes itself as it roasts in the bag. So, you don't have to hover over a hot turkey, leaving you free to prepare the rest of the meal and enjoy your guests. Because the turkey cooks in its natural juices, you'll be rewarded with the most tender, moist and juicy turkey ever. It even cooks in less time than traditional roasting methods. When the meal is over, just throw the bag away!
