The High-Tech Smearing of Ina Garten

I find it a little hard to believe that even a staffer could ignore this little boy's request. Who ignores a dying boy's wish? It sounds like she is using her staffer as a scapegoat in this. I may be wrong but no one, NO ONE, is too busy to at least give a phone call to a little boy who is dying. Her time is not that valuable. A phone call for Pete's sake would have made a difference.

Cilantro - Love it or Hate it?

My DH hates oregano. But he will eat pizza or pasta when we eat out. I tell him they put it in their sauces all the time. If I try to sneak it into my sauce at home, he can tell it and doesn't like it. Go figure.

Lemon grass substitute?

I have a jar of that, going on three years and it is still nice and fresh. I just used a tsp full in a stir fry and it was lovely. The smell is so good.

Recipes You've Never Heard of Outside Your Family

We ate Souse meat sandwiches. I can taste that wonderful jellied texture and the pickled taste. I can't find that type of Souse meat anymore. We also ate hoghead cheese sandwiches too but they had nothing to do with cheese.

Recipes You've Never Heard of Outside Your Family

My Dh's Grandmother made these and I liked them, so we still have them. I drop them in boiling chicken stock and serve them as a side dish, or maybe add back the chicken and have chicken and dumplings. They are chewy that is why we like them. Substantial, not fluffy little things.

Low Sodium but still tasty

If you have a bread machine,,,you can find a product online called "nosalt"...it comes in different flavors and taste just like salt, even on sliced tomatoes....I use it in my bread recipes to replace regular salt and it works just great...I use the butter flavored one for bread...The garlic flavored one is great in mashed potatoes,,and they have a regular that sprinkled on eggs or veggies is really good...You can find quite a few tomato products that are no salt in your grocery...Heinz and Hunt make tomato ketchup that is no salt,,,diced toamtoes,,,tomato sauce,,,stewed tomatoes....and for making bisquit or cornbread or batters,,,you can buy sodium free baking soda and baking powder....health food stores or order it online at megaheart.com.......you can also find low sodium mayo,,,it want be on the jar so check out the sodium content,,the same goes for mustard,,,,even though they don't say lower sodium,,some are much lower....use plain flour,,and cornmeal...because the self rising is just too much sodium....All fresh or frozen veggies,,,no canned,,boxed or jared items....I found a ham base, (used in green beans, it is very good) chicken base and beef base online that is outstanding....just type in redibase and look for thier low sodium products....hoep this helps some....

The Family Bandit

I think most people would be willing to share if they are asked nicely. I would take offence if my next door neightbor came over and took my creole tomatoes without asking. I treasure every one of these little beauties and usually will use them all. None ever go to waste...I use them green and ripe. I would share, but don't take without asking, please. Good manners, make good neighbors.

My Dark, Healthy Secret

I love eggplant but my all time love is yellow squash and shrimp. I barely cook this in a little butter and just never get tired of it. I live on the Coast, so right now is shrimp season. We can get them fresh off the boats.

A baked potato, baked chicken, boiled eggs, homemade bread and butter and a glass of cold buttermilk...is still the best picnic you can have. If it is tomato season, throw in a tomato and cucumber, with some sweet onion rings,,,,mixed for a salad and you have a feast fit for the Gods.

I get obsessed with these foods in the summer.

grilling whole chickens, new fave method

My DH just made something called, Beer butt chicken, where you use an actual can of beer to hold the chicken up on the grill. It came off, moist and the skin was crispy and just perfect..he put spices in the can of beer and stuck it in the cavity of the chicken, standing it up on the grill.. We will defin try this again. Even the breast was nice and moist. There are a lot of recipes for this on the net....some call it drunken chicken.
