Instincts and eyes not 'temps'. Go slow. Sad it went in trash.

What can I do with roasted beets??

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

Turmeric for health

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

Recommendation for a lightweight 12" skillet please

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.

Trader Joes for Thanksgiving

If there is a Whole Foods or other more upscale store with prepared foods in your area I think you would do better than TJ's.
