scalded milk

Hi to All, please tell me, is it still necessary to scald and then cool milk before using it in some recipes??? Scalding was supposed to kill off some enzyme or something. That seems to be such an old-fashioned idea, and I read somewhere that procedure is no longer valid because today's milk processing is different than when these recipes were made. Does anybody have any input that may help me?

pot roast and corning ware

now I have researched this if you can get good results from cooking pot roast in corning ware or not but I wanted to throw it out here anyway has anyone done this? I am wondering maybe I should wrap it in tin foil to keep in the moisture as those glass lids are not like a dutch oven

I am so confused

I am not a huge cook or baker, but when I buy whipping cream in the carton I expect it to actually work when I used electric beaters..mine did barely kept it's form and the leftovers were watery.

I did rea dthat I should use heavy cream why is whipping cream marketed as whipping cream when it doesn't whip?

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased pan

was wondering what you thought of this recipe Amy, I was looking at your Kugel and I have made this sort of thing many times, so of course with husband out of town thought I would do some research on the topic, and found this site I think I might try it maybe in half do not have enough people to use a 9x13 I guess if one is in a hurry you could by those bags of pre-shreadded ones. this recipe shows a whopping 12 eggs to 8 taters.
