Is there any difference between parchment and waxed paper? Briefly, yes: Parchment has been coated with silicon so it can be used at high temperatures and virtually eliminates the need for greasing a pan. Waxed paper will smoke at high temperatures — and the wax will come off in your food — and is therefore less versatile. I do not recommend swapping the two when lining a cake or roasting pan.

I’ve been using the new nonstick foil instead of parchment and it works wonderfully.
I love sk for your great recipes and I also love reading the comments. You do a great job. I’m an older grandma but still enjoy cooking and getting new recipes.
This is amazing!!! I’ve got to try this!! Thanks
