This is a safe-haven group where you can share your tried and true recipes and post on any topic of conversation you wish. Our intent is to keep a peaceful drama-free group that all may enjoy. So let's keep it upbeat and use common sense when posting.

We believe in freedom of speech; however, we also feel that we can have discussions without resorting to harassment or bullying.

God is a big part of our lives. All religions, beliefs, and peaceful folks are welcome to Tried & True Recipes!

Please do not post your recipes with links to off-site blogs. Post your recipes on JAP so we can all access them from the main database.

Now, let's get to the cooking!

This is my own tip. It is about repurposing Martinelli's single-serving, apple juice bottles. They are awesome and have many uses. Walmart still carries the glass bottles, but Costco has heavy-duty plastic ones. I like both. Easy to clean in the dishwasher on the top shelf.

If you dry your own spices, they make cute spice bottles. Fill them with dried oregano, thyme, rosemary and basil.

I like to use them for liquids, too. They hold 10 ounces of liquid and fit nicely into a small cooler or refrigerator. They fit the bottle holder in our car, too! I use them for milk, cream, broth, juices, flavored or plain water, and they are good for carbonated drinks because they will hold the fizz. Sometimes, a whole can of pop is just way too much for us to drink. Just pour what's left in the apple bottle and screw the lid down tight. It will keep the fizz for several days. No waste!

The glass, 10 oz plastic bottles are recyclable. No BPA.

I slept 10 hours last night, and I feel like a new person! I am off to run a few errands and hit the local stores. Have an awesome Saturday, folks!

Oh They Were So Good !

Yesterday was our anniversary and since we have been so good with our eating habits over the last couple of months it was a day for all out going wild.

He wanted donuts ... Dunkin Donuts. So off we went first thing in the morning. While he was busy ordering all the sinful bites he wanted for himself I remember having seen something on The Kitchen a week or so ago and decided that would be my thing.

So I got a dozen old fashion donut holes ... 6 glazed and 6 chocolate.

When we got home I filled my injector with Kahlua and went to injecting those chocolate donut holes with Kahlua. The glazed ones got a shot of Bailey's Irish Creme.

They were so good ... it was almost an out of body experience on the first bite .. then it was just munch munch munch !
