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.
What can I make with these ingredients: chicken breasts, snow peas, alfalfa sprouts, rice, green onions, ginger, celery, soy sauce, garlic paste?
My dad made meat and potato stuffing with onion, salt pork, potatoes, seasonings, and the liver and giblets. It was made of turkey too. I don't know what other kind of meat he used, but it had to have another meat. Plus, I'm not sure of amounts to use either. Can anyone help me with this?
I have problems with temperature control in my small oven. I have to cover with foil for part of the baking time and also turn temperature down 25 degrees. I still have problems, like burned or overcooked sides of brownies.
Store bought microwave popcorn unfortunately is not "health food", mainly because of the artificial butter flavoring. If you are concerned about that, you will want to make your own healthy microwave popcorn at a fraction of the price!
We just bought our own home about 3 months ago and were ecstatic to find out we already have a sour cherry tree. I wasn't able to get anything from it this year (by the time we realized what it was the birds had gotten most of 'em), but would love to try canning some next year....
We're going to do some canning this year. We used to can all the time. Our tomatoes are coming on pretty slow. I was wondering if I could can these as they come along? If so, could you tell me how to do this? I would really appreciate it.

I need a corn syrup recipe that is easy or can I just use golden syrup? I really want to know because I was going to make homemade cotton candy and I couldn't find any corn syrup. What could I substitute or could someone tell me a recipe that works.
Great way to get those veggies in your little one's body!
Being by myself, I hate to cook large meals then have all the leftovers. This is just perfect for me!
I ran out of sugar so I used maple syrup, I like it very much. I used 1 and half cup of maple syrup, and increased my vinegar to 1 and half cup to make up for the less syrup. What do you think, will it work? I hope so, I can't handle the sugar but the maple I can.
What is the difference between salted or unsalted butter? Salted butter is for putting on a warm bagel, muffin, potatoes etc. Unsalted butter is used for baking. If you use salted butter for baking, use no salt!
I used your recipe for pickled squash. When finished I vacuum seal the lids on, not your typical canning method. Do you think they will be good this winter kept on a storage shelf?
I've misplaced my recipe and I want to can again. Our youngest daughter wouldn't eat any other pickles. The recipe I used was in the 80's and early 90's.
