    Liz – thank you for the recipe idea. We’ve had an abundance of okra & we’ve been trying it every way possible. Our latest is Okra Cakes . . . . yummy! We keep going back to the dehydrated okra “chips” though. Full on okra taste, crispy & EASY. Now, I will try your recipe […]

  • I had forgotton about the shower cap thing. I buy the cheap ones at the dollar store to – they are fabulous!

  • We reuse foil & parchment paper. I hardly use plastic wrap. We also reuse wax paper. I save the bags that come out of the cereal boxes – they’re great for a number of things & I can also seal them with my vacuum sealer. We save bread bag (if we BUY bread) & I […]

    Really looking forward to this valuable information. Thank you for taking time to research this!

  • I have a question about the ABin5 recipe. It says to dump the water, yeast, salt & part of the flour in a bowl & let sit covered for an hour. Do you mix that before you let it sit or just leave it all dumped in and sit? Thanks – this sounds like a […]

  • Isn’t zucchini amazing? Great use – especially for the “not so pretty” ones!

  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

    Stir well, cover and refrigerate for 3 days. Stir every day.

    Pack into freezer containers and cover with brine (I use ziplock bags to have the pickles in small portions and then place the small bags in a larger freezer container); freeze.

    Thaw before serving.

  • Oh, I miss this chicken. . . . we haven’t made it in ages! Thanks for the reminder & I have to try your sauce.

  • Boy – this brings back the memories. I also had the Betty Crocker Cookbook for kids . . .LOVED it & I actually found one on Amazon & ordered it – I still used some of the recipes from it! When I was about 11 I made my Dad the “Volcano” recipe – hamburger gravy […]

  • Wow! Great tips! Gotta try the onion thing – and leaving the husks on. About the garbage bag in the freezer thing . . . you do NOTHING to the corn before freezing? Thanks!

  • Thank you for that lesson – now I know why my Mom’s pickles were dark and cloudy. She always used table salt. I will get out my Kosher for pickling time. I’m glad you taught us that, or I would have been disappointed in my pickles!

  • What a great way this post was to start my morning. I’m 60 and feeling sorry for myself – cuz I have to do STUFF that I’ve been doing all my life! You’ve made it an adventure – how refreshing! Thank you for making me smile!

  • Chop however many onions you would like (I like Vidalia when they are available). Put a bit of olive oil in a heavy skillet, along with a little butter, and sautee onions until they are to your preference. Take out of skillet to cool and when cool, put them in ice cube trays, cover with […]

  • When I was a kid, the bread bags were made of wax type paper . . . my Mom re-used them for EVERYTHING! I used to beg her for a piece to rub on my swing set slide to make it slicker. When the plastic bread sacks came out, she, of course, found many uses […]

  • That looks so yummy . . . AND – I have TOMATO EnVY!!!!

    The cherry juice & cinnamon sound good. I’ve used just cinnamon before – also on sweet potato slices. I like my apples a little softer than crunchy. My favorite to dehydrate was cucumber slices!
