Nordic Ware Review and Giveaway!!


I am the designated baker in our family, and I am always looking for new recipes and products to try out in the kitchen. One of my all-time favorite brands of bakeware is Nordic Ware. You can always be sure you’re getting top quality products at a reasonable price when you purchase Nordicware! I was very excited when Nordic Ware offered to send me a couple products for review-the Omelet/Egg Poacher, and a Mini Pineapple-Upside-Down-Cake Pan. I actually the used the Pineapple Cake Pan the day it came in! That is one of our family’s favorite desserts, so it was a good excuse for me to make some :) The neat thing with this pan is that it makes 6 individual cakes, so there’s no cake-cutting mess, or trying to get the pineapples lined up perfectly in a cake pan. It comes with a recipe as well, so you know exactly how much brown sugar and butter to put in each portion. Each mini cake is the perfect size for one pineapple circle, so it really makes it easier. And they’re so cute, too! This is a pan I will be using a lot. It will be perfect for dessert when we have friends over, too.






The Egg Poacher/Omelet Maker is a neat tool in the kitchen. Our family eats eggs for breakfast between 3-5 days a week, so this is another piece that will get a lot of use. The first time I used it I had a little difficulty since we have a gas stove, and it took a little work to get it positioned properly over the flame. With a little strategy, though, it worked great and does make poached eggs and omelet an easier, less-mess production!
