Great heat-resistant non-stick surface!  You can place it on a sheet tray and bake on it without the the need to grease or spray your pans.  Also they are really easy to clean up–just wipe down with some soapy water and let dry.  I also use it for candy making when I need to set candies on a nonstick surface.

I love this because you can set the temperature and walk away without constant need for monitoring because it beeps when your preparation reaches the set temperature.  If you are going to invest in just one  kitchen thermometer (with the exception of an oven thermometer),  let it be this one since it’s so versatile and convenient!

Years ago, I had to scour the markets for chocolate chips that were sweetened naturally.  These days they are not as hard to come by.  This is one of my favorite brands.  The chips are sweetened with “evaporated cane juice crystals” (as opposed to “natural cane sugar”..sounds fancy and natural but it’s just white sugar!)

I use sea salt in all my recipes.  I’ve learned that this EatFree swap goes a long way in curbing cravings for processed foods.   Reason?  As opposed to regular salt, sea salt has more of its accompanying natural minerals intact.  Some good options are Himalayan Pink, Celtic Gray, or Hawaiian Red.
