Ideas for 1 cup of leftover grated orange zest?

Definitely freeze it in small portions. It's great to have around!

Where can one buy Watermelon Radish's in Orange County

I think you will have to find someone at a farmer's market who grows them in season.

Healthy Coffee Creamer Mix

A tiny bit. Doesn't taste strongly of coconut. But I'm not sure either of what is being 'made'. I use coconut milk every day in my coffee because I'm very lactose intolerant.

Must it be dry? Why not just use (liquid) coconut milk?

Cut some into small wedges, jar, pour over balsamic and red wine vinegar, in a few days in the refrigerator, pickled beets!

If you have any gall bladder problems do NOT use curcumin.

Have you looked at Revereware? Fairly light and you can sometimes find pieces for sale on Ebay.

Why Is My Raw Chicken Discolored At The Bottom End?

Perhaps a bit of a fight in transit with another chicken; pretty stressful going to the processing plant!

Do you have to wait til food cools completely before refrigerating?

Stir and give plenty of air room around - no lid or wrapping, simple.
