I watch lame, romantic chick flicks that make me sob like crazy, haha. It's so fun, and a good release, and I don't have to be embarrassed about crying over a dumb movie :)

Sheet pans!! Half sized, and quarter sized. I use them for everything: roasting chicken thighs and veggies, cookies, whatever. So useful.

Can we at least change the comment format so replies are nested under the comment they're replying to? That will make following the flame wars easier. And it's just easier overall.

I marinate chicken in it. Yogurt, whatever spices you want, bit of olive oil. It's sort of tandoori-ish. Right now I have it with green curry paste, lots of garlic, salt and pepper, olive oil. Roast as usual on a sheet pan. I've done it in zillions of iterations.

Cast iron skillet. I don't understand how everyone keeps saying it's nonstick. I've tried and tried seasoning, or cooking a bunch of bacon in it to grease it all up and all that happens is I get a huge, stuck-on mess the first time I try to fry some eggs. Sigh.
