Carl and Randall, I sort of look upon our little group here as something quite similar to the church ladies, rural electric co-op magazine, farm bureau flyer, and gas company local newsletter of recipes, advice, and helpful hints. Tips, shortcuts, better methods, and unique ways of preparing local produce and storing favorite foods for the colder months. We're carrying on a tradition that goes back before Thomas Jefferson told George III to blow it out his.........

Glad to a member.

I have two or three church cookbooks as well.  They have some really fine recipes in them. 

Sometimes good recipes come from the most unexpected places.  Years ago I received a small booklet from the gas company with recipes promoting stove and gas grill use.  It has an easy and delicious recipe for crab cakes that I've made countless times.

Yes, I have a couple of "church ladies" cookbooks. One is filled with quiche recipes, back when that was a popular dish. Funny. Two other favorites are "Amish" books. Now those women could cook.

Randall and Carl, I've gone through old books compiled by church ladies for casseroles and desserts. In the words of Tony the Tiger, THEY'RE GREAT!

What I'm doing now is getting on YouTube and looking at ethnic cooking (in the native language). Amazing what you can learn from a video of an abuela (grandmother) standing over a stove and kitchen counter with someone near her with a video camera.

Randy, I still use recipes that I cut out of the Chicago Tribune back in the early 1990's.  Two of them I've totally adapted and made into my own over the years.  An Asian pork with hoisin sauce and also a pounded chicken breast sauteed in lemon/orange juice and garlic.

I have several cookbooks I use, favoring some over others. But I also use recipes I've cut out of newspapers or magazines over the years. I went through my box and pulled out about a dozen "ideas", all vegetable related. Cabbage, brocolli, green beans, kale, etc.--steam, casseroles, mix and match. I'm overwhelmed. Summer is a good time to turn vegetarian.

Kudos, high five, commendation and applause to Daniel for posting the video on how to cut a watermelon. Just came back from the market with a medium sized watermelon that I cut into pieces and eat as part of my daily breakfast.

IT WORKS!!!!  Fastest method I've ever used.

Strange, but I never--and I mean never--buy grapes. I like them, just never think to buy them. I have a white grape arbor that infrequently produces clusters (not this year). And I started a Concord variety last year (nothing yet).

Since I read that microwaves are bad for one's health, I've tried to avoid it for cooking purposes. Who knows if it's true.

I love green seedless grapes also.  That is, I love them fresh off the vine.  Not from the store shelf.

Comment by Pat on August 7, 2014 at 6:53pm

Carl, I absolutely love green, seedless, grapes. I could eat my weight in the darn things. And, here in the southern most part of Illinois, I've not had any trouble getting them. However, I have to confess, I've been eating more peaches and local fruit which is currently in season. Especially the white, freestone, variety of peaches.

Spud, I've never had any food explode in the microwave. Well, other than a few bubbles bursting in stew, chili, soup, etc., if I overheat it. Then again, I've never cooked eggs in a microwave - ever. Bacon, on the other hand......
