zuchini bread help!

Thanks for the tips! Actually added a little more zucchini than called for and it turned out exellent. A very versatile vegetable. I also used a little banana, little applesauce, and a bit of brown sugar and got wonderfully moist and delicious loaves. Mini loaves work as well.

Where to eat in Wilmington, NC

I guess depends on what you like.You seem to be hitting more casual sandwich shops.If you like Italian,The Taste of Italy is just down College not far from the college.They have great sandwiches on fresh baked Italian breads from Aunt Annies Bakery which is next to Dick's sporting store in the strip mall next to it.They have great dinners you can get from Eggplant parm to baked Ziti,and more.Excellent food.If you like Japenese,Hiro's on market street is excellent.I am a big fan of theoutback steak house.I have been to several of them in different states and they are consistently good. Enjoy!

Making dog food

my beagle likes fat free chicken broth cooked down with rice.You can also add carrots cooked down and pureed as well as beets and celery and peas.Add some boneless chicken breast or what I do is when food lion or other markets has whole roasters on sale for like 59clb,you can't go wrong.You can actually get a nice meal out of it yourself then just keep picking the rest off for the dog,plus you have a nice broth to pour over the rice with cooked down carrots and celery,don't use onions

Pickled watermellon rind-need recipe

Hi lemonfair,thanks for the tip on the watermellon rind.the peppers came out great.I made a mixture of 1cp vinegar 1cp water and 1/2 cup of sugar.I boiled to dissolving on the stove.I took my peppers and quarterd them and put them in a hot jar.I added fresh dill and a sliced clove of garlic and about a 1/2 tsp of salt.You just let them sit until the jar gets cool enough to put in the fridge.After about 20mins I opened one up and tasted.I ate the whole pint jar.Try them.this recipe actually is better with the banana peppers I used instead of just the green ones my Mom used to have a combination of the liquid being on the sweet side and a little zing from the peppers.thanks for asking,try them its easy.I'll let you know how the cukes(if I can find a farm that has let about 5gallons worth of cukes to pick that have grown to yellow) or I will do watermellon.some one told me you can also do cantalope.I 'm not sure on this because the skin to me would be to tough
