Spicy Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

I followed the directions exactly. I dried them very well on paper towels. I shook the pan a couple of times while they were baking. They were perfectly crunchy and roasted, not soggy at all. I used them as topping for a green salad like bacon bits. Delicious!!

Fresh ham, bone in... best way to cook it?

I have a fresh ham, bone in, a small one. Not sure whether it was smoked or not. What would you cook with such an item? I am thinking ham and beans? Any advice or recipes would be very much appreciated.

What to do with boneless pork country style ribs - other than BBQ

Hi everyone! It's raining outside and I have some boneless pork ribs and I don't want to do the same old oven barbecued rib thing. Anyone have an innovative and different way to use them? I was thinking cube them and make a stew or soup of some kind? Or maybe shredded pork for tacos? Ideas needed!

Easy Beef Stew

I love making beef stew on a stormy day! This is my new go-to beef stew recipe - with a couple of modifications. I used a tight fitting cover on the pot all the way through. Did not simmer uncovered. Used a fruity drinkable cabernet for the wine. Used beef stock not broth, reduced it to 3 cups and added a can of beef consommé. Threw in a few extra herbs from the garden and 1/4 teaspoon cloves with the spices. Subbed large dice portobellos for the peas. Scrumptious ladled over home-made biscuits.

Dry chicken in the slow cooker?

Well I wish I could help, but I haven't had much success with chicken in the crockpot either. It always seems to come out overcooked. I quit cooking it in the crockpot. If I want to use my crockpot, it's beef, beans or soup.

Would you care to share your favorite cornbread recipe?

Hi everyone, I lost my favorite cornbread recipe. Do you have a good recipe you'd like to share? I prefer a cake-like texture, not the dense kind.
