    Welcome to the forum. Vacationed in Maine ( Sebago Lake) for many summers with my family. My kids are now grown and moved out, so I had to learn how to cook for 2 instead of 4. Takes time to learn how to downsize, especially when used to cooking specific recipes for so long. Some I can...

    Petty Vents

    I hear ya. I remember going to my kids parent teacher night ( years ago, my kids are in their 20's now). I remember being at least 10 - 15 years older than their teachers. I also remember one of them giving me text book, rehearsed advice on why my kid wasn't paying attention in class. She...

    Petty Vents

    In my experience , many dental assistants use assisting as a stepping stone from high school to getting into a Hygiene program. Its a great move on their part, but creates a revolving door for a dental practice. Always hiring new assistants just for them to leave after a few years ( and...

    Do you trust Indian restaurants for cleanliness?

    When cooking for guests I'm usually more careful, but if its just me and my wife, I break a lot of the double dipping rules, and boy, do I get yelled at when I lick mu chefs knife and claim that it is clean. Not to mention the risk of severing my tongue.

    Black beans and Sweet potato, great combo

    We like sweet potatoes ( dont love them). We do grow them, but. they take up a decent amount or real estate, so I now grow them in an area where I dont care too much what happens. . I love crops like potatoes, peanuts , sweet potatoes where you dont know exactly what you're going to get til...

    Black beans and Sweet potato, great combo

    Yes I used corn husks. I made 1/2 a recipe and it made probably like 10 - 15. I must say, I ate some leftover ones today. They are even better day 2. The inner stuffing flavor leaches out into the surrounding masa . I'd Probably add a little corn to the filling just for textural purpose...

    Black beans and Sweet potato, great combo

    The final result was equally as good. The ratio was about 50/50 black beans to sweet potato. The sweet potato was diced on the smaller side, too it kinda blended in with the beans ( not like you were getting a big chunk of sweet potato). I used homegrown sweet potatoes, so they. likely weren't...

    My canning Journey

    Just through me for a loop at first, cause I hadn't checked on them in a few days, and wasnt sure if it was normal. I waited a week to pop open a jar, and everything, looked, smelled and tasted cook. Now, having had eaten them, with no GI issues , I consider it a success ( and know what to...

    Not helping me select dinners for the week, then complaining about what's for dinner ( that was more of a kids thing than a wife thing, but she is carrying on the tradition to some extent).

    Kitchen Pet Peeves

    Im pretty sure it is ;) Here's another one. She'll take something from the freezer that needs to be heated from its frozen state ( not defrosted). Let it sit on the counter for awhile, and then sit even longer while waiting for the oven to get up to temp, and first put it in after partially...

    Kitchen Pet Peeves

    When someone ( my wife) puts something in the oven for the exact time listed in the recipe, sets the timer and then walks away (never checking on it until the time goes off) and finds it to be over cooker or burnt when the timer goes off. Then, does the same thing the next time she makes...
