My Pizza Stone Tastes Funny and How to Wash It

I absolutely love my baking stone (I have a square pizza stone similar to this one because it is more versatile than a round one.) I use it all the time and for pretty much everything I put in the oven. ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience .) Which I learned is a mistake. The food I bake on my pizza stone is starting to taste weird. The stone smells and smokes when I put it in a hot oven. Why? Because baking and pizza stones are porous. That’s how they do their job of creating perfectly baked bread and pizza crusts. But the porous stone can also absorb and trap the fats and oils in the food baked on top of it. Over time, the oil heats and releases into the lovely seasoning you created by baking on the stone and makes your pizza or bread taste awful and/or fill your kitchen with eye watering smoke. Bleach! In other words, I should have used a metal baking sheet to make oven baked French fries and not my baking stone. Oops. Save this tutorial to

Eat from the Pantry Recipe: Spicy Tuna and Caper Pasta

Yesterday the cupboard and refrigerator were a bit bare after cleaning them out before a weekend trip.  I thought it best to eat lunch before I went grocery shopping later that day. If I didn't, I knew I"ll fall into any of the traps in my Six Hidden Grocery Budget Busters post.


  This  pasta with tuna and capers recipe took around 10-15 minutes to make and all with basic pantry staples.

I poked around the pantry and found some pouches of tuna fish behind a jar of capers. I vaguely remember buying capers for a tuna fish recipe I saw in passing online. Unfortunately I apparently pinned every other recipe to my Pinterest boards except the tuna and caper recipe I saw and intended to eventually make.


With the help of my BFF Google, I may not have found the original tuna and caper pasta dinner recipe but instead I found a better one.  I whipped up Simply Recipe's Pasta with Tuna and Capers in White Wine Sauce  with pantry staples for lunch. Yum!


 Here's a photo of the not fancy plated version of the recipe.

 So good. So quick. So easy to make.

I made sure to pin it to my Pinterest recipe board so I can find the recipe and make it again in the future. Follow me @condoblues on Pinterest for more recipe ideas!

 What is your favorite way to serve tuna fish?
