I made a batch of cookie dough, froze it, defrosted it to bake cookies, didn't get around to it and forgot all about it! That was 6 days ago, is it still good? I mean its just cookie dough, right?
Has anyone seen that new show with Adam Gergler (I think that's his name) the guy who was on The Next Food Network Star? What did you think? I was surprised to see him since he lost!
I was never much of a baker but I love it and have recently started collecting and trying out recipes. My question is: Can you substitute butter for shortening or vice versa, what exactly is shortening, or can you substitute anything else (like oil)?
I am kind of a newbie when it comes to appetizers. I can make all the usual taco dip, spinach dip, crab dip, etc. Since I absolutely ADORE appetizers I wanted to make this New Year's Eve a buffet of only appetizers, and lots of them! Can all of you wonderful cooks please share your delicious and different appetizer recipes with me? Thanks everyone and Happy New Year!
Does anybody have a recipe for ham or turkey or ham and turkey croqets? (is that how you spell it?) Thanks!
I usually toss my leftovers after 2-3 days, but I was wondering does ham keep longer or is it the same as other leftovers? Also can I refreeze a cooked ham if I can't eat it all and how about a cooked turkey breast? As you can see I have a lot of leftovers! Thanks all!
Its a cold blustery day in PA and I'd like to put something in the crockpot and just let it cook all day. I've never actually made anything in a crockpot and I'm not sure where to start. I've got chicken, beef and pork in my freezer and various other things in my pantry. Any suggestions?
I am working long hours and have been missing my hot meals (my kids have too). Does anyone have any recipes for what I would call a "Starter" that you can make several dishes from? Such as a great meat sauce that I could make in bulk on the weekend and then add to. And a basic chicken or pork or whatever that can be made into a couple of dishes easily? Is this clear? Thanks.
This may have already been asked, if so I apologize (working quite a bit) but I need to make about three different side dishes to bring to Thanksgiving dinner (my sister insists on having it, but I won't get into that). Any suggestions on some new and different side dishes for this Thanksgiving? Thanks!
I am planning on doing a lot of baking this holiday season. It's the first time I'm doing ALL cookies, pies, cakes etc. What I wanted to know was how early can you start just to keep ahead of the game and get everything done? What can you freeze and what can't you? I would greatly appreciate receiving any advice SE readers can give. Thanks.
I was just at the market and saw spices in a squeezable tube, like garlic, parsley and I'm not sure what else, has anyone ever tried these and are they any good? And what is it exactly?
Having just read the mouthwatering posts about everyone's favorite southern food, I was wondering if anyone has any recipes or tips on how to prepare fried chicken, mac & cheese or any of the other delicious foods mentioned. I've always been intimidated about trying to cook them, I think I'll mess up. Fried chicken always sounds so complicated.
I hate being wasteful, but I am also nuerotic about freshness or when food isn't good anymore. So if I made a roast beef or chicken and its been in the fridge for 3 days (since no one ate it) do I toss it or still use it? What is everyone's time limit on keeping food before throwing it out? Also, other perishables such as lunch meat, cheese, pasta?
My sister has asked for my help with my niece's 8 year old birthday party does anyone have any suggestions for creative appetizer-type foods or a website that would have any ideas? Thanks.
I would like to start a cookbook collection and went to Border's to purchase some. Boy was I amazed at the vast number and assortment of cookbooks there are out there! What would be everyone's top five so I can at least start? (I'm new, sorry if this has been asked before). Thanks.
p.s I love this website!!!
