Everyone knows Davy always wore a raccoon hat, so his mommy made him raccoon tails when he came home!
I always reuse the paper that my butter or margarine is wrapped in to butter any pans I will use in my baking recipes. You can even fold them in half and leave them in the refridge after you take the margarine out and if you don't need them for that recipe.
Davy also loved his taters! Older kids can make this easy baked potato recipe.
This recipe is my son-in-law's Grandmother, who makes it with Pork and Beans!
I found an old kids cookbook that does not have a cover on it! Here is one of the recipes that your kids can do!
When buying in bulk, can turmeric be frozen? If not, what is the best way to store?
I did three batches of grape jelly, the first is syrup like. For the second and third I used more pectin and they didn't set either. Now what to do?
Here's what I have: broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, carrots, acorn squash, and green beans. I also have ground turkey, beef, chicken stock, canned diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, etc. What kind of soup can I make?

There was a recipe for liver. You blended the liver, added veggies to it and cooked it in the skillet. I hate liver and you could not tell it was liver by the time you got done. It was very good. Does anyone have it?
I was just wondering why you have to add onions to the brine. Does this not change the taste of the cucumbers?
I only drink one cup in the morning because I love my iced coffees. I will not stop and pay $3.50 for a medium iced coffee. I pour it into a pitcher, add my sweetner and what ever spice I feel like having.
Ball has come out with a special "ice" tray for making the herbed olive oil cubes I talked about in a previous post. You put in your favorite herbs or combo of herbs, then add olive oil or coconut oil. Then you put the lid on and freeze. The herbs will infuse the oil while they sit in the freezer.
Yesterday, I made scrambled eggs with Greek yogurt. They tasted great and I didn't have to run out and get more milk.
After you make your lemon curd, can you process the curd in a pressure canner? If so, what would the shelf life be?
How long do I boil my frozen boilable bag of blanched green beans? I have several bags of seasoned blanched green beans in boilable bags which I have frozen. When I want to use them, do I just place a bag in boiling water and boil for a few more minutes to be table ready?
Being single and thrifty, I buy the large tub of whipping cream. By the time I get home, it is slightly soft. I use an ice cream scoop to place one scoop of cream into several plastic snack-size baggies and store them in the fridge/freezer.
Spray an ice cream scooper with Pam, the use it to scoop out peanut butter or shortening, your finger will be kept clean! I scoop equals 1/4 cup.
What can I make with bell peppers, corn, black beans, and chicken?
I had a gallon of milk and lots of cheese and I was going on vacation and I didn't want to throw them away. I made a large batch of cheese sauce and I wanted to know if I could freeze it and if so for how long?
Cut off both ends of the corn. Peel off all but 2 -3 layers of the husk. Then either steam for 8 - 10 minutes or wrap in a damp towel and microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per ear.
We are a very busy family, there are many days when I have little time to prepare dinner. Does anyone have any super easy and tasty recipes for one pot dinners in a crockpot? Thanks! :)

How do you adjust the cooking time when the recipe is cut in half?
Do you have to pressure cook the jars of spicy cauliflower to seal?
I was given a box of "cooking" pears. They are small and very hard. Is it necessary to peel then before canning? I do plant to core them.
Trace the bottom of cake pan onto wax paper and cut out the circle. Cut wax paper strips the height of sides of your pan. Coat inside and bottom with oil. Put wax paper circle and strips inside pan.
How do I freeze edible but matured snap or Chinese pea pods? They have full pods.
Buy a family pack of chicken thighs. Slice a 1/2 inch filet from each side of thigh, leaving the bone-in piece. This yields three finger-dipping size of meaty pieces.
Is there any way to fix beef livers without frying or throwing it out?
Take old (low loop nap) towels. Cut them at two times the height of the side of your pan. Wet towel strips and pin to sides of pan. Use large safety pins.
I made this recipe up as I went along, and it turned out soooo good! The portabellas make the turkey taste very beefy! I use Jenni-O ground turkey because it is less fatty than my old brand, has a great texture, and holds together well.
