    Thanks for this post! I had no idea about the pancakes! I guess I would just be afraid of it falling to apart in the toaster. Lately I’ve been enjoying reheating restaurant chicken in the oven and it came out just as good as before. It came with pasta so what I did was reheat the pasta on the stovetop, that seemed to work pretty well. What’s your recommendation for reheating heavy cream based pastas? Every time I reheat them, their always super oily, gross!

      I’m so glad this was helpful for you!😘 Don’t worry, if the pancake is well made it won’t separate in the toaster. As for cream pastas, I think reheating in a double boiler is best…the indirect heat should ensure no separation. If you don’t have one, stove top is good, reheat at a a medium low temp and gently stir occasionally, and if it’s one you made you can re-add a bit of the cream and butter and maybe a little herb/garnish to thicken it back up…hope this helps xx β˜ΊπŸ’•

    This spoke straight to my foodie heart. I don’t think much tastes great reheated in a microwave. I can’t say I’ve ever eaten a reheated pancake but soups and stews taste a million times better reheated in a pan x

    This is so interesting. I have a confession though, I never reheat pizza I just eat it cold. Don’t judge! I always reheat soups on the stove. Great post x

    To be honest there is rarely any food left to reheat in my house as the kids munch it all ! If ever there is left over pizza for breakfast it’s always eaten cold- to be honest I have never really considered reheating it so I will def be trying it next time!
    Great post lovely ❀️

    This is such a helpful post, especially about the chicken! I had noticed it would make it go all horrible, so next time I’m going to pan fry it! I usually eat my leftover pizza cold πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I think the chicken one is particularly a great idea, I think chicken tastes a bit gross when warmed up in the microwave so I’ll defo try this out next time! As for the pizza, I’m a weirdo who likes cold pizza πŸ™ˆ
