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?

What happened....

My Instagram account has been linked to my account forever, giving me opportunity to unleash the witty repartee that I occasionally like to impart . Now all of a sudden every time I try to post a photo or opinion via Instagram a error message pops up saying I am not a sandbox player of the client. What the heck does that mean and how do I fix it? I have opinions to foist upon the good people of JAP!!

I have a recipe for Lemoncello Bundt cake. Has anyone used this ingredient before and if so, is it sold at most grocery stores? I am not familiar with it at all. Thank you

Keey And Michael

Did anyone else watch this show this morning , Kelly had taken a few days off after Michael announced he was leaving the show to be on GMA permanently. They have been together forever and it was a complete surprise to Kelly when he announced the change. I guess it was a decision by the powers that be sad they were perfect together . I have always said TRUST is an important part of any relationship you break that trust it cannot be fixed.

Just remember, for any fresh fruit or vegetable, to rinse them well. Unless they are organic, they will have pesticides on them. I cringe, when I see a person eat grapes in the store, for that very reason. Bananas also... have pesticides. It might not get to the inside fruit, but your hands will have pesticides on them. So, everything you touch will be contaminated. At the store, I turn a plastic bag inside out, before I touch them, & let that bag be a glove. So, the fruit is trapped inside it & with a turn of the plastic, the outside of it, is back on the outside. This technique can work on anything you want to pick up at the grocery, that is small enough for the bag. Although, I have used 2 bags to cover a large package of pork chops; 1 on each end. You can always carry hand wipes too, in case you get meat juices on you anyway. Some stores have them available in that department.

Mexican Tacos

How do you make the meat for Mexican Street Tacos. I was told to put salt and pepper on hamburger than add lots of lemon juice. Let it set over night and the acid will cook the meat. True?????
