Shiny New Oven

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.
