Learning to Cook all over again
This will just be a short post. I will write more tomorrow. But I am very excited about out new purchase. We decided to get a new oven and a new microwave. They are both Vikings and the oven is also a convection oven. It is so shiny and new I almost hate to get it dirty (almost).
But, like the title reads "It is like learning to cook all over again". I have never used a convection oven before and in addition to bake - the other settings are: low broil, medium broil, high broil; then convection bake, tru convection, convection roast, and convection broil. Right now I have to look in the handbook so that I know which one to use. I am not complaining - it is fun to try out all the new settings.
So far I have baked a cake (which turned out so much lighter than in my former over) and made balsamic marinated pork chops. With the chops I used the convection broil setting - they were 1 1/2 inches thick and it only took 15 minutes. I just have to say - they were perfect.
Well, I will keep you posted.
