  1. My husband just helped a man from our church with a big move. The other two people who offered to help never showed up. He works as management at a local date farm and as a gesture of thanks has sent us an incredibly large amount of dates and other produce. I recognize the medjool and deglets, but will have to ask about the rest. There are dates stuffed with almonds, rolled in coconut, etc. Plus a bunch of citrus and grapes. I will never be able to eat all these dates in the near future. I can gift some, but am looking forideas such as something i can put up in cans maybe? Date bars and bread come to mind also. I have no idea how to best store them. What savory dishes come to mind for you?

  2. I am loving all the responses. My son is a little overwhelmed by all the choices. Certain states have a LOT of possibilities so far and others none as of yet. He is going to pick one per state, make a map, and then do a demonstration. That state hasnt been determined yet. Anyone from Arkansas? Idaho... gotta be potatoes, but what dish?

  3. I realize this is a broad question, but i am looking for suggestions for foods that you associate with certain states. My son is doing a report on the 50 states and has decided to pick a certain foodstuff that you would associate. Such as key lime pie, loosemeat, buffalo wings etc. It made me curious and i have begun helping him. I have gotten very interested in it, but am stumped by a few. He wants dishes, not just ingredients that are local. He can do the research for why the dish became popular in the region. But wants to go a little past the expected. What would you consider an alaskan specialty? North Dakota? Iowa? Nevada....

  4. Unexpected guests are coming! My husband ran out and found an open store and purchased a five lb prime rib. (Only two extra guests, but he did what he could lol) i dont have time to bring it to room temperature and am in a rush to get it in the oven. I was planning dinner in 5 to 6 hours. All my recipes say to bring it to room temp, i cant so how would you adjust cook time?

  5. I make salt roasted beef with an eye of the round. My husbands family has used the recipe for probably 40 years, tried and true. I can give you the recipe, the jist of it is a crust made of salt with black pepper, chili sauce, mustard, and cloves. The crust keeps the juices in and breaks away easily. Family favorite.

  6. I am very lucky to have numerous hunting/fishing friends. I have soo much moose, elk, venison, wahoo, tun in my freezer. I know what to do with that. But i have trout personn

    Now. Whole trouts, gutted. I have 30 plus. What to do? They wont eat a fish servedsk

    And head. I will smoke some

  7. I was very excited when i got my house, five years ago... put in three olive trees. Infested every year, trying all the remedies. But i still see larvae. Same for my picked olives from the park. I am finally ordering some. Cant wait

  8. Oh Chris.. you totally made me laugh with this post. Begoggled. But of course i immediately began researching demara sugar. And resolve to make this. I love that he says cleverly.
