    How long do I cook pork tenderloin?

    My go to method for cooking pork loins and pork tenderloins is: preheat oven to 500 degrees F, cook pork for 5 1/2 minutes per pound and then shut off oven and leave the door closed for 1 hour(no peeking). They come out juicy and tender every time.

    Use Neufchatel cheese for cheesecake?

    Geez, I just re-read my post and it sounds arrogant and like I'm bragging. That was definitely not my intention. My apologies to all.

    Use Neufchatel cheese for cheesecake?

    Okay, here's my take on this question. Yes, you could use neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese, but why would you? Cheesecake is meant to be a "special occasion" dessert and the richness of the cream cheese is what makes cheesecake something you want to savor. A cheesecake with...

    Carrot Cake made with Butter - why not?

    I've made my carrot cake with oil and butter and I'd have to agree that the cake made with oil was more moist. However, I think I like the flavor better when I use butter. Here's my old family recipe for carrot cake. Everyone says it's the best they've ever tasted. Carrot Cake 2 cups...

    Best recipe for burgers

    I've been trying lots of different cuts of beef for burgers. While chuck and sirloin are okay, they just don't have that beefy flavor I crave. Not long ago I had my butcher grind a whole tri-tip roast. It was exactly what I was looking for. Amazing flavor, juicy, and tender. It's probably a...

    Crushed Turkey?

    I bought a 12 pound fresh free range turkey, turned it breast side down and with kitchen shears, removed the backbone. Turned it over and pressed down to break the breastbone so the turkey would lay flat. Brushed it all over with melted butter and then added salt and pepper. Roasted it in a...

    I'm making a spatchcocked turkey this year. I Googled it and found lots of info. I'm going with Martha Stewart's version. I'm getting a 12 to 14 pound bird and from what I've read, it should take less than two hours to cook.

    The ultimate grilled cheese?

    I have 4 ways I like to make grilled cheese sangwiches and they all use homemade no knead bread and sharp or extra sharp cheddar. 1. With home grown tomato slices in the middle. 2. With lots of bacon in the middle. 3. With slices of half sour pickles in the middle. 4. Plain. Yum.

    New Flour

    I've been making so much no knead bread (3 loaves/week avg) I decided I needed to buy flour in larger quantities. I went to Sam's Club and found a 25 lb bag of Bakers and Chefs AP flour for $6.98. I figure this should last me a couple of months anyway. Well, I tried it yesterday and it made...

    When to pick tomatoes

    This is only the second time I've tried growing tomatoes (Better Boys) and I've read lots of conflicting advice on when to pick them. Some say pick them when they've just started to turn orange and let them continue to ripen inside, while others say leave them on the vine until they are...

    Peter Luger Steaks

    I've eaten at Peter Luger's a few times and the steaks always come out still sizzling, so I'm sure they don't let them rest. I don't let steaks rest when I cook them at home either. Sure, there's a little juice that comes out, but I just pour it on my baked potato for a little extra flavor...

    Yes, I put the lid on and just let it cook for 8 hours. I bought 4 of the chuck roasts because they were on sale for $1.57 a pound so I'm gathering up more crock pot recipes to use for the other three.

    Questions about pot roast in a crock pot

    Thank you all for the great advice. I'm using chuck roast and I'm going to brown the meat before I put it in the crock pot. I'm going to add carrots, onions, and potatoes with some beef broth. After it's done, I'll add some flour or corn starch to thicken up the juices for gravy. I'm...

    Questions about pot roast in a crock pot

    I'm planning on making a pot roast in my crock pot and I need some advice. I've read tons of recipes and some say to put the veggies on the bottom and the meat on top, while others say put the meat on the bottom, then the veggies on top. Does it really make a difference? Also, I've read that you...

    What is your Favorite Slow Cooker Recipe?

    Chili Verde. I just made this for the first time and it came out great. I found boneless pork shoulder roasts on sale for .99/lb and bought one that was about 3 lbs. I cut most of the fat off, and rendered it in a big skillet. While the fat was rendering, I cut the pork into bite size...

    Dinner Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

    I made chili verde but can't decide if I should use it to make burritos, or just serve it in a bowl with tortillas, or make enchiladas with avocado, shredded cheese, and sour cream.
