    I have a host who booked for October. Her microwave it up on top of her fridge and is too small for the DCB. Her kitchen is too small for me to bring a bigger one. I thought I'd do a skillet recipe because at her last show we did a cake in the fluted stone and a pizza and I'd like to do something different. What are your best recommendations? I'd like it to be a main dish recipe. TIA! :)

    I just tried the Zesty Ravioli Skillet & my family loved it. I'm going to do that for my next show who's microwave is too small for the DCB.

    I agree with this. I was in the same "dilema" a couple of weeks ago and several others on CS told me to do this. HUGE raves at my show, and made it with garlic bites. One of my guests said she felt like she was at Olive Garden. Received two bookings because of it:)

    I love to do the Skillet Lasagna (from 29 Min to Dinner) and the Garlic Bites. Always a hit.

    But, now that we have the Zesty Rav Skillet, I am going to start offering that one with the Garlic Bites.

    Which reminds me...I need to get my Fall Recipe offerings in order!

    Creamy One Pot Pasta is great in the 12" Skillet.

    The jalapeno popper pizzas are awesome, but I think I would do them as a stand alone demo. If you are doing pasta, add the garlic bites. They are super easy and super yummy!

    i haven't gotten my kit yet, so i may be jumping the gun... this is made in the 8 in executive correct? the one you get in your kit? then...the whole thing is done in the oven?? none on stovetop? that was the confuisng part for me, i think of skillets on stovetops! lol if i get it right... put in garlic, put in seasoning, put in biscuits, more season, and put in oven? if so that'd be awesome for my first party, i want to start with express parties till i get the hang of it, and this is a quick and easy! :D

    you melt the butter on the stove top, mix everythign in, then throw it in the oven to bake.

    8" exec saute pan

    i wouldn't do this as your main demo--doesn't show enough tools IMO.

    thanks! ya, i wouldn't use it as a MAIN demo, as a side to something else, the other ideas above are awsome. i was also reading about a chicken in the microwave too....sounds yummy! and i love the microwave desserts, but i have to ask my hostess what she wants, lol, i have too many ideas!

    I would suggest picking one or two recipes, practicing them and learning them inside and out...that way you aren't worrying about the recipe when doing the demo. If you tell your hostess what you're going to cook - all the while painting a delicious mental picture...they are likely to agree and tell you it sounds delish! Don't offer too many choices at the beginning. Just my 2 cents.
