Do you think this Kielbasa recipe will work?

I was thinking pineapple for a touch of sweetness and, pork and pineapple usually go well together.

Do you think this Kielbasa recipe will work?

I am not a big fan of Kielbasa unless it is hand made. It was on sale for a wicked low price so, we got a 1.25 l.b. link.
This is what I am thinking???

Thin sliced for all of the following.

Kielbasa
Onions
Potatoes
Green Pepper
Pineapple (add at the end)

Make it camp style, in a cast iron pan, Sauté all of it till it gets a bit of brown crust then add pineapple.

Plate it with rice and green beans.

Do you think these items will work well together?

Will also add basic spices.

Ken's refrigerated Creamy Italian Dressing.

Does anyone know where you can buy Ken's refrigerated Creamy Italian Dressing? I could get it at BJ'S and Costco years ago but, they no longer carry it.

old oil in a cast iron pan

Those ideas sound very good. I was thinking about putting the pan in our back yard hard wood fire pit upside down. If I do that, will it ruin the pan?

old oil in a cast iron pan

To make a long story short... I found a cast Iron pan in the garage that was used to fry chicken in about five months ago. The oil, about two inches, turned into a cross between soft rubber, Jell-O and, pine tar. This new substance will not come off even with boiling hot water. I got some of it on my hand and the only thing that would take it off was Lava soap. This pan is over 100 years old and, I would like to save it. Have any of you home cooks ever seen anything like this happen? If so, how can I clean it?

Muddy-tasting mussels

Keep in mind, this is the reproductive time of the year for mussels. The old tale of never eat shelfish in months with an R might apply.

When to season and salt a Rib Roast?

This is why I asked. I was hoping that I could get a reply from someone that has cooked a good number of Rib Roasts. At $ 8.00 a pound plus I am looking for the right thing to do.

When to season and salt a Rib Roast?

I have read countless ways to salt and season a beef rib roast. I have not made many of them over the years because of the cost. I will be using the high heat, turn off the oven method for cooking. Am I better off seasoning and salting right before cooking or doing it in advance?

Thank you kindly in advance. Joe.

Looking to stock the freezer with frozen Trader Joe's items.

With the holiday rush upon us, I am looking to get some frozen items from Trader Joe's to make life easy on us over the next two weeks. I am looking for three frozen dinner options and three frozen desert items. In your opinion, what is the best of the best for the six choices. We are looking for pop in the oven and enjoy items. Any ideas?

Question for candy makers???

Hello all, I am making Nutter Butter Balls for my son's birthday. They are on the line of Buck Eyes. My question is, the chocolate coating on the outside. I have a block of good Swiss dark chocolate. Aside from tempering it, is there another way to use it as a coating? My mother put bees' wax in the melted chocolate when we were kids. I can not temper it because i do not have a candy thermometer. Any ideas?

Help...need ideas for one or two bite appetizers for Christmas Party

I always get compliments over meat or vegetable calzone. They are good hot, warm or, room temperature. I usually do spinach, broccoli and, cheese for the veg one and Italian cold cuts with cheese for the meat.

How to stuff a pork roast?

I did one last week. I stuffed it with spinach, Feta cheese, mozzarella, garlic and, some Greek spices. Not really Thanksgiving spiced but, it was fantastic. If you Google stuffed whole pork loin, you will find some recipes.

Crab Imperial - As Filling for Portobella Mushrooms? Sides?

I stuff potbello caps with crab all the time. I find they come out better if you don't pre-cook them. They get a bit too soft in my opinion. It also depends on how large the caps are.

Does anyone have a good COD FISH CAKE recipe that is similar to the ones you could get at The Fishy Place(pre Legal Seafood) in Somerville or S&S in Cambridge going back about 35 years or so? I make good fish cakes but, there is just something missing.

Extra creamy Mac and cheese.

Looks like I am going to add a bit of Velveeta to the mix and see what happens. Velveeta is actually no worse than American Cheese.
