Entertaining is Fun Games and Easy Cleanup #TestDriveMoms

Christmas and New Year’s celebrations have passed and I’m still trying to recover from all the amazing food we cooked up for family and friends. Turkey, cabbage rolls, sweet potato bake, crab dip, spring rolls, chicken bites and bacon wrapped cherries to name a few of the mouth-watering foods that have graced my table.  As much as I adore the festivities of the holidays I’m exhausted, there isn’t another way to say it, and it’s time to move on for another year. Thanks to the Frigidaire Gallery Full Induction Freestanding Range, my time was better spent enjoying my guests than fussing over cook times and cleanup.


Holiday Appetizers




To me the holidays are about spending time together enjoying quality family time and savoring foods that have become tradition over years passed. Some of our favourites this year were brought to the table when we rang in the New Year with Baked Crab Cheese Dip, Ginger Pork Spring Rolls, Sweet Pepper Bruschetta, Parmesan Chicken Bites and Crab Tartlets. Of course New Year festivities aren’t complete without a few party games to bring the excitement and confetti poppers that the kids love to blow up all over the house. Accidentally my little sweetness, Baby Girl, popped one off in my kitchen; days later I was still finding sparkly little streamers to brighten my mood. Smirk.

Holiday Cleanup


You didn’t think those appetizers were all of them did you? We had to do better than that and put the Frigidaire Gallery Full Induction Freestanding Range to the test; it passed with flying colours. As much as I love entertaining, and eating, I’m not a fan of the cleanup; who is, right? I want to spend as much time enjoying my company as my guests are being entertained. This range makes cleanup easy; getting healthy and cleaning up remnants of old habits sets 2014 off to a good start.


Induction Cleaning



Induction cleaning isn’t really cleaning; the stove-top doesn’t get hot so even if you spill over, like I did with a couple of my holiday recipes, you simply wipe it up and keep cooking. There is no baked on mess, no scraping or using chemical cleaners; it’s easy. The convection oven is just as easy to clean with the self-clean option; set it to self-clean and before long any trace of your holiday appetizers and meals are gone and your oven is back in business.

From my family to yours, wishing you the best in 2014!
