kitchen cravings: structure bakeware

I think it’s safe to say that Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend officially rings in baking season (for those of us who aren’t year-round bakers). I got a sneak peek at a brand new collection of bakeware from Quebec-based Trudeau, and lovely readers, I think you’ll be as pleased as I was.

The Structure collection features everything you love about silicone bakeware – non-stick and flexible properties ensure muffins and loaves easily pop right out of their pans – plus the added bonus of a reinforced steel rim for secure handling. Your baking lives just got a whole lot easier!

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? There’s always a big turkey dinner with all the fixings (and pie, of course), but do you serve hors d’oeuvres, too?
