Group active since Fri, Jan 14, 2011
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!

There are two reasons why fruit and vegetables get regular sprayings with water: One, to make them look pretty. Two, to add weight to them so they end up costing you more. Not only does the water have nothing to do with keeping them fresh, it actually makes them rot faster.
FISH IS MISLABELED
The UDSA is actually pretty lax about testing meat to make sure it is what it says it is on the label, primarily because nobody is butchering horses in the U.S. and it’s pretty easy to tell the difference between, say, beef and pork. Fish, on the other hand, is a different story. A recent study found that up to a third of all fish currently on the market is mislabeled, with expensive fish like tuna being replaced by others that look similar. While most of the counterfeit fish is safe to eat, some of it — like snake mackerel — can cause serious gastric issues.
LOTS OF ITEMS IN THE CIRCULARS AREN’T ACTUALLY ON SALE
Those big newspaper inserts aren’t actually intended to save you money, they’re supposed to make you buy stuff you don’t need just because you think they’re on sale. Make sure you double check every coupon you’re going to use; in some cases the price advertised is exactly the same as the non-coupon price!
