Cleaning a Moldy Refrigerator
My power was off and the refrigerator was full of food. How can I clean and remove mold from it? It has been sitting for 6 months.
Banana Cream Pie
Blend sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt. Add milk. Cook and stir constantly until thickens. Add well beaten egg yolks. Cook 1 minutes longer.
Combine dry ingredients. Add vinegar and oil. Blend. Add minced parsley and green onions, sliced. Pour over quartered tomatoes which have been arranged over a bed of endive.
Beef Stew Casserole
Dice carrots and celery. Butter casserole. Place all ingredients, except mushrooms, in and mix. Bake at 250 degrees F. for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
Mix meatball mixture ingredients in large bowl and shape into balls. Arrange in 9x9 inch pan. Mix together sauce ingredients and pour over meatballs.
Dealing With Leftovers
When preparing soups or anything with leftovers to be frozen for later use, I save the excess in ziploc freezer bags. When the food is cooled enough for freezing, lay the bags flat in a baking pan until they are frozen.
Add Fruit to Extend Jam
When I find really cheap jars of jam, I buy at least 2. I open and start using alternatively so they are both about half or more empty at the same time. Then I take whatever fruit I have that's a bit spoiled.
If you like to bake things that have seasoning but don't like to stop half way and turn them over, this tip will help. I season the pan then lay the meat or veggies on it, then season the top.
Roasted Chicken with Vegetables
Mix the butter, paprika, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Loosen the skin of the chicken carefully and place 1/2 of the butter mixture beneath the skin.
Stir Fried Eggs and Tomatoes
Yummy whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner! You can serve as is or over rice but I love this dish served over egg noodles.
Italian Creme Cake
Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Beat the sugar and margarine in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the egg yolks and beat until smooth.
Another "tried and true" family favorite. This is an easy recipe and a combination of several different states' versions of an old traditional southern favorite.
Setting Up a Simple Budget

Cookies Never Spread When Baking
When I bake chocolate chip or any other kind of cookies they never spread out. I am a diabetic so I use Splenda white and brown; would that make a difference? I've tried leaving the ingredients out all night like the butter and eggs. Hope you can help.
Shopping for Cat Collars That Stay On
What type of collar is the most likely to stay on my cats? I have three indoor cats that never seem to have their collars on. I've been using the safety release type. I've replaced them thinking the clip might be worn, but it was only a matter of days before those were off as well.
Tape Measure Flower
I have a good friend who will be having a birthday soon. I enjoy making little handmade gifts, trying to come up with ideas that relate to the person who will receive it. This friend loves to sew and quilt and I wanted a small item to put on top of the wrapped gift.
What is the Best Waterproof Mascara for Swimming?
I have tried numerous waterproof mascaras. When they truly get wet (heavy gym work out or swimming), they either leave black raccoon eyes or simply run like crazy and come completely off. Can anyone recommend a mascara that they have gone swimming with that truly stays on?
Dog Sweater Patterns
I would like a very easy crochet pattern for a small dog sweater. Remember, I need a very easy one.
Norman (Jersey Cow)
Norman is a 2 and a half years old Jersey. We were visiting a local farm to buy some homemade cheese and went on to the barn to see the calves. My husband fell in love with Norman and went to ask the farmer if he would sell him.

Getting Rid of Sand Burrs
We live on 1 acre of sandy soil that is over-run with sand burrs. We do have some patchy spots with very little grass. Should we start by fertilizing and building up the turf or can we go ahead and start with pre-emergent? I would like to try using corn gluten meal.
Making Soap Using Melt and Pour
I have been making soap using "melt and pour" soap with some success. But the only thing at the moment that I cannot master is when I tried to add oatmeal to make an exfoliating soap. The oats sink to the bottom.

Adjusting Stitches to Change the Size of an Oval Crochet Rug
How do I adjust stitches on oval crocheted rugs to change size? Thank you for all the feed back, but I think I didn't ask the question correctly. Someone had told me a formula that I can't remember. The original chain is what determined the size of the finished rug. Or does the original chain size not matter?
