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?


substituting alcohol in recipes

By Rose Reller - 7 Hours Ago

I am not able to use alcohol and need to know what to use in place of it. I have a new recipe for Italian Cream Cake. In the recipe you are bake the cake, cut it in layers, and brush rum on each layer. What can I substitute for the rum and get the same flavor? I would appreciate any assistance with this and would like to keep the good flavor of the recipe.

I have only had pinto,pork and beans ,beans that you make soup like 16 bean soup I'm picky about the taste of some of them and nervous about trying them in a recipe if I don't like them .

Is there a way to copy a recipe and paste it to e-mail? I tried highlighting and pasting but that didn't work. JAP may not allow this, just wondering.

Amish Broccoli/Cauliflower Salad

By Bennie Shaw - Dec 2, 2014

For those of you who have "pinched" my recipe. I thank you, but I just re-read it and corrected the recipe. It should have read 1 t salt....NOT 1 T. Sorry, I'm afraid that would ruin a delicious salad.

I have been having so much trouble with gravy lately. It starts to thicken but then it just goes watery. No matter how many more times I thicken it, it goes watery. I've used both flour and cornstarch as thickeners. I make milk and broth gravies. Not in any combination does it make a difference. I've been making gravy for years. I don't know what's happened. Any ideas?
