Big Oil

No I am not talking about the debate in Washington DC! But sometimes when we use oil we use too much. I do use butter for things like eggs and add olive oil for other foods.  But even I can get carried away.  If you are trying to lose some weight or just want to cut down on the amount of oil try these suggestions.

1.Use a mister to spray the pan lightly. Or use a commercial pan spray. The key word is lightly.

2. Use a silicone brush instead of one with horse hair or fiber.  The silicone does not absorb the oil and lets you use less.

3. Use a paper towel with oil on it when you oil a baking pan instead of pouring the oil in then pouring some out.

I hope these help you!  Anyone have other ideas?  Let me know!!
