Most of all, though, I love the chance to really focus on the important stuff for a change. Not the stresses and the negatives, but the fact that I can sit in the house I adore, surrounded by those I treasure most in the world and just enjoy them.
But, not everyone is so fortunate. I can barely afford to feed my family. I am so broke I went to get a food-box. They told me I make too much money and I just cried and cried. I have no food. Then it will onto another small town out in the boonies. As long as I have the computer to come here and talk to people and other sites I am easily contented. Love the site, by the way — I received your book a couple of weeks ago and there are so many great ideas in it!
I do keep telling people about your site though! I just saw a video with a lady dehyrdrating potatoe slices and she put 2 layers on tray by using the screens for small items. She put a layer then the screen and another layer. You double the trays for about the same length of time. In my dehydrators just the round table top ones I use 2 apples to a tray so the screen idea was great as that way I can do 4 apples to a tray. When desired thickness remove from heat and add salt and pepper.
He said that as the turkey roasts, the popcorn pops and the turkey is done when the popcorn blows the rear end out of the turkey. Uncle Roderick would be years old now, but colon cancer got him at age I love your plain and simple recipes so much. Food tastes so much better when it is cooked simply. Thank you again for this. I believe the sweet potato casserole can be prepared ahead and frozen, then baked for the Thanksgiving dinner after thawing in the fridge for a couple of days.
This certainly saves time on the big day. Your suggestion to place the mashed potatoes into a crockpot AHEAD of time is a sweat-saver, yet I never thought of it. Thank you! Teri, I take it you are using fresh cranberries. I have never made it but I think with a few changes it could fit your needs. What he did was take 2 cups of berries add sugar cover with water and cook until the berries pop. He drained it back into the pan and put the berries aside while he boiled the water and added the jello and the gelatin.
When it boiled and the powders were dissolved he added the berries and set it in the fridge until it hardened a bit. He folded in the whipped cream and it was ready to serve or put back in the fridge until dinner. I thought the whipped cream did not make it look too appetizing and I would probably just let people top it with the whipped cream as they wanted. Or put it into a cake pan and when it set cut it into squares and top with a dollop of the whipped cream.
For other recipes where you need a processor you could either just chop them fine or grate them on a cheese grater. I have done both and prefer the chopping as I like my fingers with skin on. I just add a can of whole berry cranberries to a large packet of red jello. I add it right in the beginning when it is still hot to dissolve it Put it in the fridge just like regular jello.
It turns out great. They a 50th anniversary cookbook that came out in They have pecan pie I have eaten Sorry Grandma! Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. If at all possible spend it with Family and Friends.
May God Bless. I am sorry. I am sorry for the missing words, I have 8 thumbs and 2 big toes for fingers. Please understand!!!!!! As an Australian, sometimes these recipes are hard to covert. We have all different sizes here!get link

It is different but sugar like salt when added to certain things enhances the flavor so much. In other words the mashed potatoes taste richer and with more potato taste.

Happy Thanksgiving! Our dressing is hard to measure because we jus throw stuff in and it never taste the same. I also want to say that I am thankful to the Lord for my nice cozy apt, my 2 jobs and most importantly my family and friends. What day is your thanksgiving. I do only about a 1 Tbsp. The staff there were very kind and she was taken home for Thanksgiving and for Christmas.
I am still grateful for the kindness she met, She is still in touch.. I was the one weeping through the carols at home. I have to laugh at those who are surprised about the sugar in the mashed potatoes. I live in Canada and have never heard of it before either, but when I was a teenager, I came into the kitchen just in time to see my foster mom putting peanut butter into a meat gravy.
I thought she had lost her mind and asked her what she was doing. She said they made it all the time when she was growing up on the Canadian prairies. She smiled her triumphant sweet smile, and I learned something new. I do know that a half a teaspoon of sugar cooked in water in a pot with some too-old peas left over from the end of the garden, will make them taste more like early peas. I also remember an older gentleman from my childhood, who said the only way to really enjoy a fresh tomatoe sandwich was with a sprinkling of table sugar over the freshly sliced tomatoes, before putting the top slice of bread on.
I love sugar on my tomatoes too. It is always a toss up on whether I want sugar or salt. I will have to see if I can find a recipe for peanut butter gravy. That really sounds interesting. Thanks for telling us about it. Goodness Gracious! How timely these recipes are. I was just getting ready to take out a search for my sweet potato souffle recipe and dreading it because I never put it in the same place twice. I do that too all the time Diane. I have been using a very similar pie crust recipe for a few years. I do mine in my mixer with the bread hook.
So simple and freezes beautifully.

Just thaw and roll out. I could not make a decent crust until this recipe appeared. I like to make a double batch my recipe makes four crusts so I can have them In the freezer in flattened balls. Really makes pie making easier. My husband loves to deep fry the turkey so I never have any drippings for gravy.
Anyone have a good suggestion? You may want to replace a bit of brother with butter to enrich it. Sweet potatoes are SO good for your health. They are one of the reasons Okinawans live so long.
Mary Jane wrote about peanut butter gravy which reminded me of another unusual use for peanut butter. I was eating refreshments after worship service in my church many years ago and one of the sandwiches was tuna salad. I remarked how good it was and the young mother who had made the sandwiches said that she put peanut butter in with the mayonnaise. They loved it, so she decided to make it for our refreshments. Just a couple of spoonfuls made all the difference in taste. We had 2 walnut trees.
I have never liked pecans.

So when I make a pecan pie I put walnuts in place of pecans. If you are a walnut lover you will love this. Just use your regular recipe for the pie. My family loves this.
