One of my favorite kitchen appliances is my six quart Nesco oval roaster oven. This is a very versatile device that eliminates the need to fire up a full gas oven. The appliance consists of a well fitting lid, a main body containing the heating element, a removable cooking well and metal heat rack.
Cary, North Carolina’s peanut butter has tested a positive strand of the same salmonella in their peanut butter paste from a cracker factory owned by Kellog Company’s Austin Foods division. Cary, N.C. was voted as 4th Best Place to Live in 2006, unfitting for the recent local Wral news released. Since the outbreak of salmonella, 4 reports of positive results for salmonella has been found in North Carolina with one death. The victim died while in nursing home care. The woman’s her family begins to hold Peanut Corporation of America and King Nut Corporation accountable shares Pritzker Law.

Originally, pizza was a peasant food. The popularity of pizza spread quickly, especially in and around Naples, Italy. When tomatoes arrived in Italy from Peru, they became a vital part of pizza preparation.
My Aunt always used stewed tomatoes. For me though (since I’m not ‘into’ huge tomato chunks), for this version of one of my tasty chili recipes (basically that of my Aunt, but with a ‘bit’ of ‘enhancement’ from me), I’ll use a can of crushed, and a can of diced. Dark or light kidney beans are fine. However, you’ll want to prepare this mild chili recipe using better quality hamburger (and avoid ending up with a pan of too much fat).
Mashed potatoes can be made the night before and reheated in the microwave. Susan and Rolly’s version uses a sour cream and cream cheese base, and freeze extremely well. Just defrost, reheat and serve—-no more recruiting someone to peel potatoes on the day of the feast when they’d much rather be watching the parade or game on TV.
