  1. I don’t have a list, I have a book lol
  2. This isn’t my picture. I usually bake a chuck roast recipe using a different recipe, but, this recipe is good. Crockpot Mississippi Roast: 1-(3-4lb.) Chuck Roast 1 Packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Seasoning 1 Packet McCormick Brown Gravy 1 Packet McCormick Mushroom Gravy 1 Medium Onion, Sliced ***I Added Some Garlic 1/2 Jar Pepperoncini 1/2 Stick Butter Salt, Pepper And Garlic Powder Season roast with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Seer on both sides until brown. Place in crockpot. Put 1/2 stick butter on top of roast, sprinkle Ranch Dressing and gravy packets on top of roast. Add onions and peppers on top. Cook on high for four hours or on low for six hours. *** I Cook It Longer On Low. ***You can serve this as an entree or serve on Hoagie Buns.
  3. This tip is from a chef who is a friend of mine on a recipe forum that I belong to This is what she said: It has been my experience to freeze breaded foods and not refrigerate ahead of time. The breading could fall off if just refrigerated. A chef friend taught me this.
  4. I just found this so I haven’t tried it. Ok you guys this really is the best stuff! Works on every stain I've tried it on! The ultimate stain remover that actually works on a seriously set in stain! Never buy oxyclean again! The mixture is: 1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent 3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide couple tablespoons of baking soda. Scrub on with a scrubbing brush.
  5. A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped, and every once in awhile, a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a Policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling Out of that bag." "Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer.." "Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. "Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?" "Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot. On game days, a lot of fans come and pee through a knot hole in the fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make the best of it?' So, now, on game days, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his pecker through my fence, I surprise him, Grab hold of it and say, 'O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.' "Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?" "Well, you know", said the little old lady, "not everybody pays."
  6. Note: This tip is from a chef who is a friend of mine on a recipe forum. She said that the chef told her to freeze breaded foods and not to refrigerate ahead of time because the breading could fall off if just refrigerated. Onion Rings: In the video, he froze the rings for an hour after slicing the onions, then he breaded them and then he froze them again while heating up the oil, I didn’t have time, so I didn’t do that. After having those onion rings from the car wash the other day, I made it my mission to come up with a recipe to make them at home! I made homemade onion rings for the first time today and in my opinion, they turned out great! They were crunchy and that’s the way I like them! After looking at you tube videos and other sites, I combined some recipes. I won’t ever buy grocery store onion rings again when I can make them at home. This was a little time consuming, so the next time I make them, I will prepare them ahead of time and put them in my Tupperware container and freeze them until ready to fry. This is how I made them, I eyeballed it some. Here is the recipe with notes. The pictures aren’t the prettiest, but. they sure were good. They look kind of burnt, but, they were golden brown. Onion Rings: Large White Onions ***Use How Many You Need Cut the tops off both ends of your onions. Cut into thick rings; push the center out; separate into onion rings; put in a dish that will hold them or in a bowl; cover the onions with milk. You are suppose to leave the milk covered onions in the refrigerator for at least an hour, but, I refrigerated them overnight. When time to deep-fry the onion rings, put 3 dishes on your countertop. In One Dish: Add Flour ****I can’t tell you amounts because it depends on the thickness of your rings and how many rings you have. I also sprinkled in some Lawry’s Seasoned Salt & Some Tony Chachere’s Cajun Seasoning. ***Add any seasonings you like! In Second Dish: Whisk enough eggs to dip your onion rings. In Third Bowl: Put equal amounts of Panko Breadcrumbs and Crushed Saltine Crackers. ***You want enough to coat the onion rings. You may have to do this more than once in case you run out. Steps: 1. Dip onion rings in flour. 2. Dip in eggs. 3. Put onion rings in Panko Breadcrumb/Saltine Cracker Mixture 4. Dip the onion rings in eggs again. 5. Put the onion rings in Panko Breadcrumb/Saltine Cracker Mixture. Put oil in Presto Fry Daddy. Hear oil for 10 minutes. Add onion rings and fry until golden; watch them , because they don’t take long...a minute or two! WATCH THEM! Put onion rings on a paper towel-lined plate ***I like spice so I sprinkled a little salt, pepper and a touch of cayenne pepper over the onion rings. Serve with your favorite dip. ***I Used Homemade Hidden Valley Dressing. ***1 Pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix 1 Cup Kraft Real Mayonnaise 1/2 Cup Milk Put all ingredients in a bowl; whisk. Put in a mason jar or an empty salad dressing jar; refrigerate.
  7. I always set an aluminum pan in the counter when I fill empty spice jars, peel potatoes etc. I put the empty spice jars in the aluminum pan to fill them, it keeps the spices from going on the counter. When I peel potatoes, I put the peels in the aluminum pie pan so all I have to do when I am done, is dump the peels in the trash can. I don’t want a trash can by me when I am working in the kitchen. I use the red container to put flour and seasonings in when I fry chicken and other meats. All I have to do is put the stuff in and shake it. I got it from Tupperware. I cleaned my kitchen cupboards today and I put the spices on a cookie sheet so when I need them, I don’t have to move them all around in the cupboard. I can just take out the cookie sheet and they stay organized that way.
  8. Creamed Peas & Potatoes: 2 Large Potatoes-(Or Several New Potatoes) 2 T. Butter 2 T. Flour 1 Cup Cream 1 Cup Milk 3 Cups Fresh Shelled Peas Or Frozen 1-1/2 Tsp. Chicken Bouillon Granules Pepper, To Taste If you are using new potatoes you just boil them in water until tender. If you are using regular potatoes, peel them and cut them into large, 1-1/2 inch cubes. Boil in salted water until tender. Meanwhile, prepare a basic white sauce by melting the butter in a 2 qt sauce pan. Whisk in the flour and then the cream and milk. Cook over medium heat, whisking until thick and smooth. With a wooden spoon, stir in the chicken bullion and the peas and cook until heated through. By this time your potatoes are pretty close to being done. Drain the potatoes and add them to the white sauce. Stir in pepper,if desired. Do not over cook. You want the peas to remain crisp and not get soggy like canned peas! Leftovers get somewhat thick, you may want to add some milk when you reheat this dish.
  9. I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and Lima Beans for dinner last night. This fried chicken recipe is the only recipe I will use. It never fails me, so thought I would share it in case anyone would like to try it. I use Whipping Cream, butter and salt and pepper for mashed potatoes and I use it to make gravy, if I have it on hand. My Favorite Fried Chicken: Use 7 chicken legs-(1/2 of a large pkg.) In the morning, rinse the chicken legs in colander. Put the chicken legs in a large bowl. Cover the chicken legs with water; add some ice and some salt. Refrigerate for several hours. When ready to fry; add 2 eggs and 4 T. water to a bowl; whisk. Using large Tupperware container, add 2 Cups Self Rising Flour, Garlic Salt, Pepper and some Seasoned Salt; stir. Add the chicken legs; shake. Dip the chicken legs in the egg and water mixture, then back into the flour mixture in Tupperware container. Season the chicken legs with Garlic Salt. Pepper and some Seasoned Salt on both sides of the legs. Put lid on and shake again to coat. Steps: Flour/Egg/Flour Let the chicken legs rest for 5 minutes or so; this helps the coating to stick better. ***I coated the chicken ahead of time/flour/egg/flour a few hours of cooking time and refrigerated it in the Tupperware container that had the coating ingredients and the chicken legs. Use an electric skillet! Heat 2 cups of oil in the electric skillet to desired temperature. Check the oil by dropping in a little bit of flour; if it sizzles, add chicken legs; season some more while frying. Fry until golden brown. When it’s ready, put the legs on a paper towel- lined plate.
  10. Someone in a group shared this idea the other day so I gave it a try. It was awesome! Planted 66 onion bulbs this morning PERFECTLY spaced apart. Definitely will be doing this for my carrots.
  11. A father said to his daughter “You have graduated with honors, here is a car I bought many years ago. It is pretty old now. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you for it.” The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because the said it looks pretty worn out.” The father said, now “Take it to the pawn shop.” The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said,”The pawn shop offered only $100 because it is an old car.” The father asked his daughter to go to a car club now and show them the car. The daughter then took the car to the club, returned and told her father,” Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it because “it's an iconic car and sought by many collectors.” Now the father said this to his daughter, “The right place values you the right way,” If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Those who know your value are those who appreciate you......Never stay in a place where no one sees your value. #knowyourworth
