Rising food costs. Is it changing the way you eat?

Thankfully,healthier food is usually cheaper food. I'm eating more beans and vegetables which is much cheaper and better than meat. Buying whole chickens are cheaper,cutting them ourself for chicken parts and stocks for cooking soups and vegetables. In the long run,you'll be healthier,less health costs. There's a few good things about higher food prices.
And to the person who says food prices go down after summer? Then they go back up for the Holidays!

Parboiling Baby Back Ribs???

Parboiling,par simmering,pre-baking,any such thing SHOULD be punishable by a long jail sentence!!!!!! Slow and low or cook something else if you're in that big a hurry!!!!!

Fresh versus Frozen Turkey

This year I will be doing Thanksgiving Day a little different.I will be cooking and donating turkeys for a homeless dinner.I have never purchased a frozen turkey,but since I will be purchasing several turkeys out of pocket (working on my own limited budget ) I'm wondering is there a big difference between frozen and fresh.

I went to the "new Farm Fresh market in August,it was closed.I'm not sure when but it has reopened with a new name,Super King Market,I 've been a few times and it is so far quite a bit better than it was before.I only buy produce there and compared to how the produce was before closing,it is much fresher.The whole store,so far smells and looks better.
