    Scalding the turkey makes for a very nice moist turkey. I have been doing this method for over 25 years. Cooking time shown in the method is for a 16 pound stuffed turkey.

    This is a recipe that I used to make all the time when DH and I had Kids at home and money was a big issue. It is off a recipe card from Betty Crocker back in 1971. It's from the "Best before payday dinner" card. I used it alot and still make it once in a while because it is so good. I should put it in my "Money is tight now that I'm retired cookbook". (For future use) Based on Chef Tweaker's review I have moved some of the steps for ease in preparing this dish.

    My mother spoke of having bonfires when she was young, growing up on Long Island. The kids would throw potatoes into the fire. She said they would be burned and hard on the outside with light fluffy potatoes on the inside. When cooked this way, the outside is very crisp and crunchy, and the inside nice and fluffy. We throw a bunch of potatoes into the oven of the wood cook stove many, many nights during the winter months. We frequently put them in the gas stove, in warmer months, when cooking a roast, or other oven dinner. But somehow, "mickies" are not the same unless cooked in our Home Comfort! We always think of Mother when we have mickies.

    These easy-to-prepare sweet potatoes pack a big flavor punch. This is out of a Weight Watchers cookbook called "Best of Weight Watchers Magazine" There is only 1 point per serving.

    A great way to lightly flavor fruit and even tofu from the inside. Anything that can be "skewered" will have a little extra flavor. The possibilities are endless. This is one of many choices Check out my others.

    The sour cream, believe it or not, makes scrambled eggs heavenly. They are so fluffy and good. I was told years ago that you never put milk in scrambled eggs, BUT water. Can you believe it? I tried it and never put milk in them again.

    I love this recipe because it cooks in the oven leaving more room on the stovetop or it can cook along with your enchiladas! From Rick Bayless.

    The perfect pot of English tea leads to the perfect cup of English tea! I know this is NOT a recipe, but it is amazing how many people do not know how to make a PROPER POT of tea! We always make a pot of tea at home - even if there is only one of us here, we just use a smaller pot! I also prefer loose tea to tea-bags, but we do use good quality tea-bags as well. This is my method for making a perfect pot of tea, and therefore a perfect cuppa. This has been posted due to a request from my daughter, who obviously has FAR more sophisticated tastes as a university student than I did when I was one!! Plus, what can be nicer then baking a cake, inviting a couple of friends over and having a natter with a cuppa? It puts the world to rights! Quantities are listed for a pot of tea for two.....you can increase or decrease the amounts to suit.The following extract is from Mrs Beeton's book of Household Management printed in 1880; here she suggests the method for a "perfect" cup of tea, using loose tea of course and NOT tea bags! "There is very little art in making good tea; if the water is boiling, and there is no sparing of the fragrant leaf, the beverage will almost invariably be good. The old-fashioned plan of allowing a teaspoonful to each person, and one over, is still practised. Warm the teapot with boiling water; let it remain for two or three minutes for the vessel to become thoroughly hot, then pour it away. Put in the tea, pour in from 1/2 to 3/4 pint of boiling water, close the lid, and let it stand for the tea to draw from 5 to 10 minutes; then fill up the pot with water. The tea will be quite spoiled unless made with water that is actually ‘boiling’, as the leaves will not open, and the flavour not be extracted from them; the beverage will consequently be colourless and tasteless,—in fact, nothing but tepid water. Where there is a very large party to make tea for, it is a good plan to have two teapots instead of putting a large quantity of tea into one pot; the tea, besides, will go farther. When the infusion has been once completed, the addition of fresh tea adds very little to the strength; so, when more is required, have the pot emptied of the old leaves, scalded, and fresh tea made in the usual manner."

    This is how my Granny made sweet tea and it is some kind of sweet. Know that and beware. Pa-Paw used to down 2-3 glasses after working in the garden all day. Back off the sugar if you can't handle it. This one is for true southerners only ;)

    Recipe #63785

    Stretching our budget I purchased half a ham and had to make it last...Threw it in the freezer until inspiration hit me. With a few easy steps I was able to stretch it three ways! Ham dinner, ham and beans, and ham salad for yummy sammies. All measurements are estimates since I am too lazy to be precise...
