268 Frieda Loves Bread Turns 3 ~ and a Silpat Giveaway!! **CLOSED**

Three years ago, I did not even know what a blog was.

Now, I can't imagine what my life would be without it...

I have met so many wonderful people:  bloggers and readers like you, and I want you to celebrate with me!

How?

By having a giveaway!   Yay!

Turning three has never been more fun ...

... and one of my lucky readers will have even more fun with two (yes, TWO) Silpats!

What is a Silpat?  It is a baking mat used in place of parchment paper, greasing baking sheets, and many, many other uses.

I have had mine for over two years and absolutely love it ~ that's why I want you to have one!

Oh, but you need two.

Why?

Baking cookies and rolls with it do better when they have their start on a cool mat.  Get one tray ready while one is baking in the oven.  (I have three of these...I use all three in my convection oven, all at the same time!)  You can even use it for candy making; toffee comes to mind...

How easy is it to clean?

I let the mat cool on the baking sheet and take it straight to the sink.  I use a scrubber sponge and hot water.  (You can put a dab of dishwasher detergent on a wet dishcloth)


Rinse.


Dry.


You will notice that I bake on the bottom of my baking sheets.  This allows the air in my convection oven to circulate better for even browning all around.

I store my clean and dried Silpats flat, inside the baking sheets.  They cannot be folded.  Silpat says that they can be stored rolled up, but one of my readers had a problem with storing it this way.


Take care of your Silpat and it can last you many years.
