I've used parchment under cookies and so forth for a long time, and have always been happy with the results. A couple of months ago, I used it instead of foil (for no particular reason) in a roasted potato recipe that I've made for years-- wow! No sticking! No swearing! No torn-off lovely crisp edges! Today, it was under some roasted wings, and once again I am delighted with the results. I feel both stupid and really, really pleased. So this is my Ode to Parchment.
