Xtrema Italian Bake Dinner

We cooked up a simple Italian Pasta Bake Meal last night in the Xtrema 10" Braiser/Baker. (look for this product to be available again in 2013). You can use any Xtrema Bakeware product depending upon how much you want to make. 

 Check out our line of bakeware right here. 

 No recipe, just put it together with what we had in the kitchen. 


Ground Turkey Meat
Jar of your favorite pasta sauce or homemade
Box of wholewheat pasta noodles
Fresh Mozzarella  and shredded Mozzarella 
Fresh Basil and Crushed Red Pepper for extra zest

We first browned the turkey meat in our Xtrema 10" Skillet and cooked the pasta in our Xtrema 2.5 Qt saucepan.  We then sprayed the bottom of the Braiser with Olive Oil and then added pasta, then sauce, and chunks of fresh mozzarella. We layered this until we run out of pasta.  We then topped off the dish with shredded Mozzarella, fresh Basil and Crushed Red Pepper.  Bake for around 8 minutes and broil for 3 minutes or so to crisp the top.   What you get is a delicious and simple 30 minute meal!  The best part is that you can take your Xtrema Skillet and serve it right to the table-- it will keep the food warm and moist! Plus it looks great on the table too!

Happy Healthy Cooking,

The Xtrema Team

Mind-Blowing Tomato Sauce in the Xtrema 3.5 Qt Saucepan!

Friday nights here in the Xtrema Kitchen are usually set aside for pizza but we were having family in town so we changed it up a bit and went with an eat clean Italian dish this past weekend.  It was really just Penne Pasta, sauce and salad which is pretty basic right? Wrong!

Thanks to Pinterest and Healthy Crush, we went with a homemade tomato sauce that was out of this world!  Mind-Blowing Tomato Sauce-- that's the name of this delicious and all-natural sauce.  For the pasta selection we went with a 100% Whole Wheat Penne from Mara's Pasta.

Here is why we chose Mara's:

  • Unique variety of wheat gives Mara’s a better taste and texture
  • Designed for athletes and others who are looking for more nutritious foods
  • Higher in protein and fiber than other whole grain pastas
  • Grown for Cook Natural Products by a network of US family farmers
  • Cooks faster than other whole grain pastas
  • Made with 100% whole wheat variety specific Maragraintm

If you love great Italian food and eating clean then you will just love this recipe. 

Mind-Blowing Tomato Sauce in the Xtrema 3.5 Qt Saucepan


1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 box Pomi chopped tomatoes (about 28 oz or 3 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes)
Zest of one lemon
Fresh pesto

The Eat Clean Diet

Now that you can cook healthy with Xtrema 100% Ceramic Cookware, why not eat healthy as well?  

There are all kinds of ways to eat healthy but The Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno really works and it's not a diet or fad! We think this is a fabulous healthy match for our healthy ceramic cookware.  We've been cooking out of The Eat Clean Diet books for months and the recipes are wonderful.  Not only are they nutritious, but they are tasty too.  Tosca Reno just came out with a new book, The Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Book which we can't wait to try.  You can find a link to her new book right here: The Eat Clean Vegetarian Cookbook

What is the Eat Clean Diet?

Eating Clean is treating your body right!

It is eating the way nature intended. You eat the foods our bodies evolved to function best on, and that makes you feel – and look – fantastic. When you Eat Clean you eat more often. You will eat lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. These practices keep your blood-sugar levels stable and keep you satisfied. The best part is that if you need to lose weight it will happen almost without you having to try. And yes, you can have a treat now and again.

Best of all, Eating Clean keeps you feeling great and full of energy. In fact, you can forget all about the days when “dieting” meant feelings of hunger, lethargy or deprivation.

Eating Clean is not a fad; it’s a way of life. When you Eat Clean your body will react by losing weight if you need to lose, maintaining a healthy weight if that’s where you are, and even gaining weight if you are too skinny. But regardless of whether you want to lose, maintain or gain, you will feel better than you ever have before. Never worry about counting calories again. You will never have to diet. Eating Clean will keep you lean and healthy for the rest of your long life. Eating Clean guarantees results!

-- Tosca Reno
You can find this information and more about The Eat Clean Diet right here: Eat Clean Diet

Now you can cook healthy and eat clean when you combine Xtrema with The Eat Clean Diet!  Give it a try and you will feel healthier and be healthier!

Homemade Xtrema Chicken Pot Pie

We had this the other night and it was delicious! This is a homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipe which has been passed down through our family and we wanted to share it with all of you.  Hope you enjoy...


1 white onion chopped

3 carrots chopped
2/3 cup of frozen peas
2 potatoes peeled and diced
3 cups cooked chicken cut up in bite size pieces

Cook onion, celery, and carrots in oil until tender. (15 minutes) Stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and potatoes and continue to cook until potatoes are tender. Add frozen peas. Drain, reserving chicken broth. Place veggies and cut up chicken in the baking dish. (we used the Xtrema Braiser/Baker)

Make medium white sauce.
Melt 2 T butter, add 2 T flour and stir constantly. Remove from heat and whisk in 2 cups chicken broth and 2 cups of milk. (fat free)  Return to medium heat and cook until sauce is thick and bubbly.  Pour over veggies in baking dish.  Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Make biscuits following directions on Bisquick box. Drop biscuits on top of filling in baking dish.  Bake in preheated oven until biscuits are golden and filling is bubbling.  (25-30 minutes) Let rest of 5-10 minutes before serving. 

For enhanced flavor, use your Xtrema Ceramic Baking Dish.

Xtrema Cookware Goes Italian with Healthy Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Do you love Italian food and cooking healthy...

Then your sure to love this Weight Watchers Spinach Lasagna Rolls Recipe from Chef Mommy--Family friendly eats from my kitchen to yours...Enjoy!

We had a few friends over last night and tried this recipe for the first time and it was a huge success!  Everyone went back for seconds as one piece just wasn't enough.  What's even better is that it's healthy so you don't have to feel guilty about going back for more. Of course we cooked this meal in the Xtrema Ceramic 4 Qt Oblong Baking Dish and served it right to the table from the oven. Because Xtrema retains the heat so well, those second helpings of Lasagna were still nice and hot!  Wow! This dish was delicious and we recommend that you give it a try and let us know what you think...

Greek Chicken and Pita Casserole

Xtrema goes Greek in the Kitchen

We are just loving Pinterest and last night we tried a new Greek Recipe in the Xtrema Ceramic 4 Qt Oblong and it was delicious.  It was called Greek Chicken and Pita Casserole and it was easy to make and it sure was tasty.  Take a look at this photo to see how it turned out. By using Xtrema, we were able to take it right out of the oven and place it directly on the table where it retained the heat and kept the dish nice and warm. 

Here are some quick facts about Xtrema Ceramic Cookware and Bakeware.

Foods cooked and baked in ceramics taste better, look fresher and are healthier.
  • Greater moisture retention. Foods cooked in Xtrema do not dry out like they do when cooking on top of the stove with metal cookware or using metal baking pans in a gas an electric oven.
  • Meats, fish, vegetables and baked goods cooked in Xtrema are juicier even after long
    periods of time.
  • There is little or no food shrinkage when cooking with Xtrema.
  • Natural flavor is enhanced when cooking with Xtrema and there is never any toxic metal flavor in the food.
  • Xtrema’s unique ceramic formula generates far infrared radiant heat and energy. Xtrema’s healthy and non toxic ceramic minerals like Silica Oxide (SiO2) which is used in our special clay mixture absorbs and emits far infrared radiant heat (FIR) which is the best heat for cooking foods.
  • The retained heat in the ceramic walls of our Xtrema cookware does the cooking and keeps on cooking and heating long after the heat has been turned off.Thin walled stainless steel and aluminum metal cookware can not cook by retained heat because the thinness of the metal cookware is not capable of storing any heat. When the heat is turned down and off in metal cookware the cooking stops.

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage may lead to cancer. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of the damage free radicals might otherwise cause. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C, E, and A, and other substances.

Here is a wonderful chart that breaks down the various sources of Antioxidants.

Debra Lynn Dadd Reviews Xtrema's FridgeX Silicone Food Storage Containers

Here is what Debra Lynn Dadd had to say about Xtrema Cookware's new Fridgex Silicone 
Food Storage Container Line:

Based on this and other research I have done on silicone, I don't see a toxic problem here. Looks fine to me.I have a set of these storage containers. They can also be used as bakeware. There are two things I like about them. One is that they collapse so they take up less space to store. The other is they actually absorb cold, so they keep food cold out of the refrigerator, like a little cooler. I don't know how long this thermal effect lasts, but plastic doesn't hold the cold at all. Great feature! These are FDA approved containers for both baking and food storage. I don't see anything toxic about them! :)
