Tip of the day - How to clean a glass top stove without expensive chemical products

Steps to Clean a Glass Cooktop:

Tools you will need:
  • Paper towel or clean dish cloth- to wipe up lose debris from stovetop
  • Hot soapy water- I fill the sink, or you could fill a bucket or bowl (use 1-2 tablespoons dish liquid for soap)
  • Baking soda (about a cup – enough to sprinkle over stovetop surface)
  • Old cloths or rags – enough to cover the entire stovetop surface
  • Sponge – make sure it is clean (do NOT use the abrasive side if your sponge has one, only the spongy side)
  • Rubber gloves
  • Microfiber cloth -to buff on the shine
Let’s Clean:
  1. Use paper towels or a clean dishcloth to remove as much lose debris and liquid as you can from the cooled cooktop.
  2. Make up your hot soapy water in the sink, bucket or bowl (be sure to wear the gloves so you can make the water pretty hot)
  3. Place rags in hot soapy water
  4. Sprinkle baking soda over the entire stovetop
  5. Remove rags from water and wring them out just a little, so they are still pretty wet and lay them over baking soda covered cooktop
  6. Let sit for about 15-30 minutes. (keep an eye on it, if it looks like it’s starting to dry pour a little of the hot water over the rags if they are becoming too dry)
  7. Remove all the rags from the cooktop.  Place one rag in the soap water and ring it out some and use it to wipe down the cooktop, in a zig-zag pattern.
  8. Wet sponge with cool water and wipe up an remaining debris or baking soda.  At this point, if you have anything that is still stuck on, try using a nylon pot scraper to loosen.
  9. Once everything is removed and clean, use the microfiber cloth and buff the stovetop to a dry shine.  You can also use a little glass cleaner if you are seeing streaks

Baked Brie with Apples, Brown Sugar and Pillsbury Dough

Are you thinking of having friends over for the Superbowl 2015? If you are, this recipe will blow them away. It is easy, very cost effective and takes less than five minutes to prepare. You will need to following ingredients:

1 Round Brie
1 granny smith apple (peeled, quartered and remove the pips)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 roll of Pillsbury crescent dough
1 beaten egg to baste

Preheat your oven to 350. Start preparing by removing the dough for its tube and roll it into a square form (as seen in photo below). Add the brie in the center of the pastry and place the sliced granny smith apples on top along with the brown sugar. Fold the pastry over the brie so it is totally covered. Baste the top with a beaten egg and place on a cookie sheet in the oven for 20- to 25 minutes. Once it is golden brown, remove from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.(if you do not let it cool the cheese will be too runny) This can be served with crackers or on sliced apples. It is highly addictive and really delicious. Bon appetite
