Making the Holidays Delicious #testdrivemoms

My Frigidaire Full Induction Freestanding Range has been working overtime this month. Food is synonymous with the holidays in our house, and this year was no exception. However, there was a difference in how I did things this year because I had my new range. I have mentioned the oven space that I have now, but I have to say it allowed me to bake three sheets of cookies all at once. I made ham and scalloped potatoes and had room to slip in a pan of rolls on top. I baked both of my Christmas morning casseroles on one rack, leaving it so I could have put cinnamon buns or another pastry in if I had thought of it ahead of time (that is on the menu for next year).

I really value the energy savings of the induction stove top and I continue to be amazed with the quick response when I change the burner temperature. My eggs were at a rolling boil when I turned off the burner. The water instantly stopped  boiling. It is amazing how quickly that happens! My favourite holiday benefit to the induction range involved melting chocolate. I had heard that I could melt chocolate in a regular pot right on the burner and I decided to give it a try. I kept the heat at medium-low and melted three bags of chocolate chips with absolutely no chocolate burning. It ended up perfectly smooth which was just what I needed to make my Christmas peppermint bark.

It is Boxing Day and I’m not done cooking yet. Now that I know how easy it is to melt chocolate on the induction stove top, I think I need to make some more candy and squares, and I have several dip recipes that I ran out of time to make before the holidays. Thankfully we still have New Year’s to celebrate!

      I bought a KitchenAid set of cookware on sale for under $300. You need to watch the sales to get good cookware for the induction range. I made several practice cookies before I got to these ones, lol.
