I would like to see a designated page for cooking questions. If there is one already please direct me. I have a question right now.

When a recipe calls for grated parmesean (?) cheese, is it grated in the can like for Pizza, or is it grated like say, cheddar cheese?

While reading my new Amish cook book today, (like the old saying goes your never too old to learn never thought of this,)instead of cutting up an onion for soup, sauces, or something else, put the whole onion in and when your soup or whatever is ready take out onion you have the flavor but not the onion itself. I am going to try this on my picky daughter when she gets here.

I always start out with the drippings whatever it is that dripped, I'll use it. If there isn't enough then I will open a can of campbells soup Beef or Chick stock and use that. Probably all wrong.... I prefer to use cornstartch.

So here I stand next to the stove... pot of boiling drippings 1/2 cup of warm water and three tablespoons of corn startch mixed in the warm water, I wisk it in the cup then add it slowley add it to the boiling dripping... wishing it will taste good.
Nope it tasted awful, I try to flavor it but no luck still taste creepy and it is never thick enough , if I add more corn starch it tastes yucky. If I switch to flour blahh ...

What the heck am I doing?!

Sausage gravy is no problem I have found Pioneer gravy mix and I am set now.

Oh now if I use canned gravy I still save the drippings for soup base or stew base.

Thanks for the help.

I made an Asian Style Chicken Slaw yesterday for lunch that I got from the Taste of Home web site. Would it be okay to post this recipe if I put in there it came from Taste of Home. I don't want to do anything illegal. Thank you

Hello,
I have a Toshiba laptop and have had it for about 5 years. Does anyone know if I can trade it in for a smaller updated laptop. I purchased it a Best Buy. I am wondering if they would trade for me.
Thank you.

Looking for a new crockpot. Mine died a slow, horrible death in her old age.
Any advice?
