  1. Does this mean that my Prime delivery drivers are going to start wearing Hawaiian shirts?
  2. I've used it for cooking/baking. I am not a big fan of peanut butter sandwiches, so a jar of peanut butter might last me 10 years. The powdered stuff is more practical for someone like me.
  3. I'm no expert, but unless it is non-stick, I wouldn't worry about it. Non-stick cookware has a relatively short life and should not continue to be in use if it is scratched, chipped, etc.
  4. Check out Pierre Franey's Low-Calorie Gourmet and Craig Claiborne's Gourmet Diet books. Are they completely low-fat? No. But they are definitely lower in fat and will give you some good ideas for how to cut fat and calories in your cooking.
  5. That looks like my blade. I better check that recall, too.
  6. Would this hold true for any tinned fish product, including tuna in oil?
  7. Beautiful meals--thanks for sharing them. Did you manage to go by Rancho Gordo while you were there?
  8. I love this version of Irish Soda Bread. Mom made it for decades, I've made it for decades and I've shared it many times. Everyone loves it.
  9. Even more proof that dishwashers are horrifically underpaid. Most of us customers have no idea about these things. I hope the dishes get rinsed thoroughly--I wouldn't want to ingest any of that stuff!
  10. I have not made them. Yet. But still interested.

    @Shelby, I'm so sorry you have to go through this. Just remember the end goal and hang tough! Hugs!!

    I would not have thought of doing this and it sounds like it is right up my alley. Thanks for posting it!

    This is a delightful combination. My kind of fast food. Had it with warm baguette and beurre. Only complaint about the salmon is the pull tab which broke off. I hate those things.

    A friend now regularly gifts food to me. He brought me some red pepper soup he made. I garnished with micro arugula and crumbled bacon. Had it with Wheat Thins and pinot grigio. A warm scone (from a local Irish place) with TJ's cultured butter from Brittany and whipped cream (no clotted cream, so I did my best) was dessert.

    Roasted chicken thigh and veggies with Trader Joe's Honey Aleppo Sauce.
  17. I was another who had a mother who didn't like help in the kitchen, so if I ever learned anything about cooking from her, it was merely by observing from afar. I married at 18 and my poor ex-husband suffered through a few horrid meals (Hamburger Helper!!!) before someone gifted me a BH&G cookbook. And thankfully, we lived near enough to both families to go home for plenty of meals often.
  18. An acquaintance that I met a few years ago in a canning class has stayed in touch via Facebook. She saw that I've been having a hard time with my husband's care and sent me this. So thoughtful! Really made my day.
  19. After posting previously about liking their lasagne, I have a bad one to report. Costco had a Rana Meat Lovers Pizza Lasagna a month or two ago so I picked one up. Don't. It was absolutely tasteless. Yes, there were all the meats listed, but I couldn't taste anything except the bacon. The worst Rana product I've ever purchased.

    Wow you all have been making awesome stuff! I haven't really cooked since my husband went into the care facility. I hope I'll adjust at some point and get back to doing something at least once a week.
  21. I had that very one that we got as a wedding gift 39 years ago. It served me well all these years and finally bit the dust.
  22. Thanks! Getting some of those appliance gizmos and making note of the herbs for when I need them.
  23. Dusting off this topic to say that a friend brought me a package of Tete de Moine for $1.99 at Aldi. It is terrific and what a bargain!
  24. I bought a super cheap Black & Decker that also has an air fry function a year or so ago. It works great. I don't think it was more than $70. I don't use it for a lot, but is wonderful for heating/cooking small things in the hot months when I don't want to heat up the kitchen. I have never checked the temperature for accuracy since I don't use it for anything that makes that much difference.
