Good Evening, I surf in while trying to find out how to thaw frozen chicken, the information is working and I'll have a meal shortly. Recently widowed, I'm trying to learn how to get around the kitchen; some experience over the years, but organization and planning are my downfall. Managing is made a little more difficult as I'm diabetic, and interested in vegetarian meals and preparation.

Best to all

Bob R

Welcome to DC, Bob! Spousal Unit and I are both Diabetic and I'm an RN...so I know a little about it. Any questions, feel free to ask. I know how to cook, too!

Hey, Bob! Welcome. Don't worry about downfalls in the kitchen. Comes with the territory. After decades of cooking, I am still finding new ways to screw things up.

You know how to cook? Since when?
Duck & run very fast

I'm just kidding. Pri-Fi cooks really good stuff.

I'm diabetic too. And I know how to cook as well. Just ask, and we'll all chime in to help out.

My problem(s) well one on them is How do you substitute Stevia for say a cup of honey or Brown sugar. Seems like the bulk is lost with the substitution??
