  1. Can anyone tell me what this kitchen gadget is? The lighter is for comparison size. Thanks for any help.
  2. How did the homemade cherry pies go over? I would be asking for seconds if I were there!
  3. Zap the thawed, dried shrimp in the food processor, add Old Bay, a little horseradish, a few fresh bread crumbs an egg and maybe a little chopped celery and make into patties......sautè in a little olive oil. Serve with seafood sauce, etc.
  4. I use a new, unglazed clay flower pot (run through dishwasher before using) to keep mushrooms in the fridge, put a paper plate over top. Seems to keep them fresh longer than in a paper sack and definitely longer than styrofoam cartons wrapped in plastic. When baking rolled cookies I put the dough between sheets of parchment paper, therefore using no extra flour.

    I always use it to marinate shrimp.
  6. There are a couple of places in the area, Colony Country Diner and Two Sisters Cafe that have daily homemade specials for $5.95 which also includes a salad bar. The food is plentiful and good.
  7. There could be nothing to complain about with that meal! The pork looks delicious, as does the dessert, but then I am a sucker for anything orange.
  8. Like: Ina Garten Giada Michael Chiarello Anthony Bourdain Ann Burrell (minus her growls and flying hands) Can't stand: The Neelys Paula Deen Bobby Flay Rachel Ray Sandra Lee The rest are in between.
  9. I have been buying from stores like TJMaxx, Marshall's and HomeGoods. I have been fortunate finding several bottles of Italian, Sicilian and Spanish evoo, which is my favorite. Once in awhile I find a bottle or two from California. They are usually 50%-60% off suggested retail prices.
  10. I am adding another 5 to my collection. Things Cooks Love A Love Affair with Southern Cooking The Savannah Cook Book Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns and Other Southern Specialties Giada's Kitchen
  11. When families actually ate dinner together and folks had manners.
  12. Hi Randi, got a question...why is your food going home for your supervisor's supper? Your supervisor is a piece of work if she can't even support what you do, is there morale problem with her underlings; with that attitude, it wouldn't surprise me? Oh, and that soup looks delicious!

    You could make a Nantucket Cranberry Pie (more like cake than pie) or cranberry cream scones. Nantucket Cranberry Pie Cranberry Cream Scones
  14. I will eat less "white" foods. I will make a turkey dinner more than once a year. I will find a way to use everything in my pantry this year. I will learn to make decent pie crust! I will teach myself to use a pastry bag the proper way. I will read all of the cookbooks I have recently acquired before adding more. I will not panic if my husband wants to use the kitchen!
  15. When snowed in I like to have a nice hearty beef stew with a loaf of homemade bread or a bowl of chili with jalapeño corn muffins.

    And I thought I was the only one to use those wide rubber bands on tongs!
  17. I have made a celery/green olive/onion salad using a little olive oil, white wine vinegar, oregano and s/p as the dressing. It sounds weird but tastes really good.

    Deviled Ham

    Reading this made me run to the pantry, get a can of Underwood's, mix it with a little Dijon and Hellmann's and eat it on pumpernickel! That was my favorite sandwich as a child.
  19. Fresh baked, slightly warm bread with lots of sweet butter!
  20. Chicken Parm looks fabulous, Randi! Glad to hear you are finally getting some compliments.
  21. I keep all my rice in the freezer to avoid that extra protein!
  22. I make two loaves at a time, too. When freezing it to keep it tasting fresh I wrap one in paper towels, then foil and finally bag it. The paper towels seem to keep the bread fresher for some reason and when it thaws the crust isn't soggy from the condensation.
  23. Randi, you must be a saint to put up with those two ladies. If no one else is complaining I would continue cooking the way you normally do and not worry what those two old bats carp about. I always look forward to reading this thread. Thanks for sharing it with us.
