Will this food kill somebody or make them sick?

Scott thank you! I was thinking that might be the case but just wanted the opinion of someone smarter than me. (Dear husband would say toss it all if he knew it happened.)

The thing I think probably has to go is I had bought a large frozen shrimp cocktail ring when they were on sale at Kroger to have some time this summer when too hot to cook. I bet that will be inedible because it's not mind-blowingly good to start with.

Will this food kill somebody or make them sick?

My upright freezer door got left open a little - not once but twice.

The first time, things thawed down pretty much. (It's in my garage and it's summer in the south.) Still cold but not frozen. Second time wasn't as bad. But still...

I have leftover-type foods in the top and those thawed the most. But I also have lots of meat in there.

I am heartbroken and resisting throwing everything out. It's so much money. But then again, I'm a little bit afraid of this food.

What to do, what to do...

Homemade "dessert shells" for strawberry shortcake

I love pound cake and I REALLY love almond. I'm bet I could eat this whole thing by myself in a few hours.

Sadly I think DH would be very mad at me if I made a pound cake though. He's off sugar and pound cake is his kryptonite.

Keeping this recipe though in casE of divorce, sugar relapse, etc.

Homemade "dessert shells" for strawberry shortcake

Okay I will try to find a recipe for that. (When I google shortcakes what usually comes up is the biscuit-type which is not what we eat around here.)

And if anyone HAS a quick and easy recipe for this, I'm all ears.

Homemade "dessert shells" for strawberry shortcake

sorry to yuk your yum but sweet biscuits (as I sort of mentioned) just sound disgusting to me with strawberries on them.

Homemade "dessert shells" for strawberry shortcake

You know the little "shortcake" shells next to the strawberries in the grocery store...6 to a package...yellow spongy cake thingies? Anyone have an easy recipe for these?

I don't have tiny tart pans so I'd probably make it in a cake pan and cut in sections but my family strongly prefers that soft "Twinkie-like" texture rather than something more biscuit-like that I've seen in some cookbooks under "shortcakes."

Thanks in advance for any help and happy holidays to all!

What can I do with fatty corned beef trim?

Wow gregarious that sounds wonderful. I'm guessing you could do this with trimmings from other things? Pork butt...prime rib...a roast?

I want Buttermilk Pie that is buttermilk-y!

I think this last time it was Bugarian style or something like that.

Maybe I will pick up some real buttermilk at the Amish colony

Thanks for your reply, blue room. But gelatinous textures are a no go for me. :(

I want Buttermilk Pie that is buttermilk-y!

Tried several recipes - this week it was the one from Homesick Texan.

So far, none has the TANG (and maybe the creaminess) of buttermilk that I'm looking for. It just tastes basically like chess pie. Good but not what I'm looking for.

Can anyone help?

Kitchen towels - am I just being OCD about this?

I've been thinking of switching to all white so I can bleach them. Plus I like how they look "chef-like."

Quick and Easy Baking Ideas

I made these last weekend and they were ah-maze-ing. I used coconut oil for the oil.

I cannot make them again. I literally ate half the pan in one night. So so good and so easy .

Go Nostalgic or Go New?

After many years of wanting to go there, we found Pascals Manale disappointing. Service was great but the food has slipped, evidently.

Kitchen towels - am I just being OCD about this?

Lately I've started to be skeeved out about not washing my kitchen towels by themselves. After all, I sometimes put food directly on them and I often touch them to clean dishes.

Problem is most weeks I only use 2 or 3 towels so it's not a full load.

Does this bother anyone else or it is just me being weird?

How often do you wipe down the shelves in your fridge?

I wipe the shelves about once a week week - right before shopping trip when it's kind of empty.

The door shelves don't get it as often. Did them recently - one at a time until all done.

I tend to just do a bit at a time.

What I'm not good about is the big major cleaning of taking everything out. When I do, I get a folding table and put everything on there while I clean. (I don't have much counter space.)

dutch ovens vs. slow cookers

I agree. I think my slow-cooker gets too hot and boils the flavor out of things. I never use it.

Reheating Holiday Roast Prime Rib/Standing Prime Rib Roast....On the Stove, and or, In the Oven

This sounds great, ac.

I'm thinking maybe have the meat slices at or close to room temp.

USDA SELECT Prime Rib $80 worth for party tomorrow...will it be awful?

Well guys for future reference...my guests loved the prime rib. The cooking method was PERFECT...very happy with that.

But there was a difference in tenderness in the select prime rib roast from what I've had before. I will be more careful next time...I think it's worth it to get Choice grade.

Four, that's good to hear! I've been reading your threads and thought if you could make good roast beef with CHUCK you must surely have the right method.

Was glad to see you mention no blood gushing on the plate - we like it fairly rare - but not that rare.

You're great and you have a really cute dog.

USDA SELECT Prime Rib $80 worth for party tomorrow...will it be awful?

Didn't realize until I got it home that the whole prime rib I bought was SELECT instead of choice...no wonder only $5.99 a pound!

Got it salted down on a rack in fridge. Any other suggestions for me? Fourunder?
