For those of us living deprived of a self-cleaning oven, the Vermont Country Store offers a non-stick oven liner. You put it on the bottom of your oven to catch drips. You then can pull it out and wipe it clean. Guess I will have to get one of these. But, I will need to check, first, if it’s parakeet-friendly. Also, for who is going to make the pie. New this fall, $14.95 online at Vermont Country Store.
