Default Cooking with parchment/wax paper instead of aluminum foil?

I was just wondering if this would be a better way to cook meats, and baked fries etc. I just cooked eggplant in my oven with olive oil and seasoning and it stuck so bad and made a mess. Ripping the pretty little slices... So I wanted something that wouldn't do that D: and possibly would allow me to use less oil. As I had to use 2 tsp of olive oil only to have it stuck to the foil!

If you keep doing what you always did, you will get what you always got.
The only sure fire way it can not happen is if you quit.

A for every 5 pounds down~

I always use parchment paper when roasting veggies, etc. Nothing seems to stick to it. A tiny bit of oil goes a long way on parchment paper, and everything gets a nice and crispy coating.

All this time I've been fumbling with foil! Thank you. I'll be buying some tonight!

Yes parchment is magic - look for it on sale and stock up then as it can get pricey. The other thing that you may want to get if you don;t have already are the more industrial heavy aluminum half sheet pans
