Lisa, while discussing re-purposing pots, pans and dishes, it brought to mind a dish I had at a restaurant in Southern Calif. over thirty years ago that I have seldom had since, but the unique thing about it were the bowls it was served in. In this case it was an exclusive single-use bowl set. The chef offered cold cucumber soup, served in a double bowl - a bowl within a bowl. It was a decorative bowl capped with a chromed or silver-plate lattice frame around the edge that held held the rim of the second bowl containing the soup. The decorative lattice held the smaller bowl nested within the larger one creating a space between the two bowls that held crushed ice so the soup would stay chilled and as well as secure.

I have repeatedly searched for such a set but have failed to find anything even close in resemblance. I would greatly appreciate any assistance in this search. I'm not even certain what something like this would be called.

Keith, I watch cooking shows from PBS and they put those frying pans in the oven quite a lot.  I just purchased a new one a month ago and it is a T-Fal one, like they use on the show, and is supposed to be heat resistant to a high degree.  I have to look at the packaging again to know for sure the highest oven.  Anyway, I never think to use it in the oven.  I will have to retrain my brain that these can go into the oven.  Growing up the only skillet that went into the oven was the cast iron one, which is so heavy I couldn't lift it anymore, so I do not own one.

Other Uses

As I mentioned in my previous comment, I am now the proud owner of a 10-12" paella pan. Besides making paella and even a risotto, I have found another use for this steel pan. A roaster (No, not rooster.)

While at the market yesterday I picked up a Boston Butt Pork Roast that was on sale. I had just seen a TV program on BBQ and it had given me a mouthwatering urge to make something BBQ. On line, I found a long, low and slow oven recipe for just this cut of pork.

I have two full-sized roasting pans that are large enough for an 80 lb. turkey if I should ever need one, but for this roast, which is about the size of a tea kettle, I really wanted something smaller. !!! The paella pan! After rubbing the roast with mustard and BBQ dry rub, and sealing it in aluminum foil, the paella pan was the perfect size.

Even as I type this, it's basting in goodness at 250 degrees for the next 4-1/2 hours, followed by an additional hour or so glazed in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce while uncovered.

I have serious doubts about how long this juicy tenderness will last once it becomes leftovers! In any case, my point is to reconsider re-purposing your expensive specialized dishes or pans for other uses.

I bought a paella pan yesterday. It's only 10", large enough for two people, but not huge like the size needed to feed a family of 12! Without going to the grocery, I don't have the "fixin's" to cook a paella but I did just finish making a shrimp risotto... and IT'S DELICIOUS!!! I know the pan doesn't add any flavor, but it can increase creativity, such as using truffel butter to brown the rice, using a mild beef broth instead of chicken broth, and adding a few green beans as well as peas. One teaspoon of bacon grease added just the right amount of light, smoky flavor without overpowering the shrimp.

Keith, I grew up on Tuna-Noodle casserole.  When I was single in my first apartment, that is one of the only things I knew how to make blind folded.  I made it after getting married, but my husband did not grow up on it.  He asked me to make it with chicken, so I make the same dish using canned chicken.  We also make chicken and rice quite a bit, using the recipe that is on the can of cream-of-chicken soup.  It is easy to make and my 15-year-old can make is easily.  Another one I grew up on was roast beef with vegetables made in the crock-pot or the roasting bag put into the oven.  The vegetables growing up were always green beans and potatoes.  Now that I am eating more vegetables, I am thinking there are other kinds that would be good with the beef.

I'm not certain, but I imagine that most of you tutored your cooking skills under your mother, and probably on a regular basis. Me, I played high school sports and I was also a voracious reader, so I didn't spend much time in the kitchen. The point I'm slow getting around to is that there are some dishes that most home cooks can prepare blindfolded. Tuna-noodle casserole is one of those dishes. As a teenager we ate it occasionally, but I never bothered to help. It wasn't until today that I baked my first Tuna-noodle casserole and it turned out pretty good! My final casserole size, 9x13, is big enough to last me for three days, and being single that's a good thing. If anyone has a unique ingredient or method they find adds goodness, please let me know.

I've never been a fan of squash except Acorn Squash because of the use of fattening butter and brown sugar. Zucchini just doesn't impress me, but recently, during an attempt to reduce my calorie intake yet make a flavorful pan of oven roasted vegetables I sliced then halved medallions of Yellow Crook-Neck Squash. They were OK. But yesterday I made a crock pot of Gumbo and added the Yellow Squash to that too. What a difference it made! The squash absorbed the flavors of the sauce yet held its texture, not turning to mush. I was pleasantly surprised and figure that Yellow Squash would do well enhancing any kind of stew.

You try it and see if you don't agree.

On the hunt to take down 22 pounds I gained over the holidays, I'm one of those strange dieters. For instance this morning I had nothing but yogurt, but for lunch I scavenged around in the refrigerator and found two foot long hot dogs remaining from a package of eight. Not to be wasteful, I put together a tasty meal. Wrapping each hot dog in two strips of bacon and placing them in a very hot cast iron skillet with a lid, and then turned it down to medium heat. After the bacon began to get crisp and rolling them four times, the final time I added two 1/2 slices of American cheese to each hot dog. When the cheese begins to drip, I plate the golden,  smoky hot dogs and drizzle with yellow mustard. Adding a steak knife and fork, and taking advantage of the old reference, "tube steak" I could hardly contain myself.

Although not necessarily low fat, I consider it reduced fat because of the lack of any bread or bun.

Tonight I may saute some Atlantic cod filets served with Boston Baked Beans.

Christmas Eve Dinner

It wasn't fancy, but it was nice.

An oven broiled thick ham steak, toasty brown.

I forgot the raisins, so I made a dried cherries and brown sugar and healthy dash of ginger in 2 cups of water, 1/2 tsp. sea salt and 1/4 cup of corn starch brought to a simmer until thickened sauce for the ham. (Kind of wordy, wasn't it! HaHa!)

Using 1/2 bag of frozen green beans in shallow, simmering water, I added a few drops of liquid smoke, about 1/4 cup of chopped bacon, 1 tsp. sea salt, diced onion and a small can of drained mushroom stems and pieces - all heated until ready to be served.

A baked sweet potato with butter, 2 Tbl. of molasses, a dash of nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon, all mixed together.

Cranberry relish (not sauce.) 1/2 bag of whole cranberries simmered in 1 cup of orange juice and 2 tbl. of chopped candied ginger (an absolute MUST!)

I finished off the meal with a slender slice of pecan pie.
