Move over PAM!

I enjoy cooking and baking, but cleaning up afterward can be a drag. Plus, the many cans of non-stick cooking spray I was using wasn't helping our budget. Then I learned of this nifty trick:

Combine equal amounts of canola or olive oil with liquid lecithin (available at any health food store or natural foods co-op). Store in the fridge. It can be stored in a pump bottle to squirt it on. I keep mine in a container and paint it on with a silicone pastry brush. Actually, my little ones love to "paint" the dishes for me.

This is very economical because a little goes a long way. The lecithin lasts forever, and it makes clean-up a breeze!
