  1. The pine board was unusually moist. I was pleasantly surprised. It went quite well with our bbq aligator ribs and squirrel kabobs. A new family favorite!
  2. Oh, please use Cedar, the be-all and end-all of the culinary masters insist that Cedar gives the most flavourfull result. Don't throw the carp out - make a tasty salad out of it, throw in a bit of hemlock, some 'wild' mushrooms and some rhubarb leaves and serve it to the afternoon ladies bridge club or the Monday night football guys.
  3. Wendy, what a grat new recipe idea! This is very similar to the chocolate covered ants posted! Thanks for breaking up the day :)
  4. I made this meal and ate it for seven days and still didn't get board of it! I think my husband didn't empty the trash last week, though. Something fishy about that. Thanks for the smiles! ;)
  5. Very funny, Wendy--and I've enjoyed the clever reviews as well! Sadly, I really DO want a good carp recipe as the fish-mongers here have big tanks full of the beasts! Another funny thing: the restaurants that translate their menus into English (for the likes of me) aren't selling as much carp as they might because "Fried Crap" just doesn't sound that tasty!


Hello! I am a thirty-nine year old mom with two children. I am originally from Xenia, Ohio where I have lived longer than anywhere, but have lived in many different places. Ohio is one of my favorite states...I love the different seasons here! I love to remodel and decorate homes, when I have the time, and of course, I'm very passionate about cooking!! There is a long line of great cooks in my family and I am trying to put together a cookbook for them, from recipes they've shared with me. I have no favorite cookbook...I love picking up new (even better...very old) ones from yard sales, Ebay, Amazon, or wherever I find a good book with a good deal! Love the Food Network and my favs to watch, when I have the time, are Giada De Lorentis & Tyler Florence.
