    Bears got my flock

    This would have been my third spring with chickens. I was just talking to a friend last night about bears, and commented how we haven't had any bear problems since living here, and the time I'm really concerned is in the spring. This morning at about 0700 I was on the porch, the dog was out...

    My grandmother used to make Kolache (we called it Crotch Cake. Don't ask!). I'd like to make it, but I'm having a heck of a time finding a recipe. Everything I find is for a cookie. I'm looking for a kolache with a nut filling and rolled up jelly roll style. Does anyone know what I'm...

    Pressure Cooker/Canner

    So I got a 23 quart Presto Pressure Cooker/Canner for Christmas! Yay! One of the reasons that I wanted it was so that I can can my own soup. But now, I'm not sure about it. From reading the Presto booklet, it sounds like broths can be canned, but not soup. Does anyone can soup?

    Green tomatoes

    What else can you do with them, besides fried and relish? I've never had green tomato relish, and I really don't want to go through all that and not like it. Someone mentioned to me pickled green tomatoes. Is that the same as relish?

    I have no doubt that I have bronchitis. I've had it before. I get it at least once a year. I haven't been to the doctor yet for this bout. What's the worst that can happen if I don't go to the doctor and get on antibiotics?

    Stuffed cabbage

    How do you all make your stuffed cabbage? Do you simmer it on the stove or in the oven? Do you use sauerkraut or tomato sauce or tomato soup? I canned about 20 jars of tomatoes in juice. I'm thinking of simmering the rolls in some of that.

    "Relish" newspaper insert

    Does anyone get "Relish" in the newspaper? I do, and I lost last week's issue. I'm looking for a recipe for grilled chicken breasts with Goya seasoning. Anyone? And, I posted here too soon. I just realized that I had googled "recipe magazine!" No wonder I couldn't find it. LOL It's...

    free music downloads?

    Does anyone download free music? Now that we have a new computer with a disc burner I'd like to make some CDs, but I don't want to have to pay for it . I don't want to just Google "free music downloads" and end up with viruses or whatever out the wazoo. Any recommendations?

    Ribs - End result

    How do you cook your ribs? I have some spare ribs I'd like to make this weekend (Tuesday and Wednesday is my weekend) and I'd like to hear how others do it for tender, juicy, melt-off-the-bone ribs. I let the rubbed, wrapped ribs sit for a few hours. I cooked them at 225 for 5 hours, then...

    Baking after freezing question

    I'd like to make baguettes and stuffed baguettes. Given the amount of time to make them, I usually only do it on my days off. But, I want/need them on a day that I'm working. I plan on making the dough today and doing the initial 3 hour rise. Then, I divide the dough and shape and stuff...

    Children and euthanasia

    I've been around animals all of my life. I've put more than my share of animals down. I know when it's time. I'm not one to prolong the suffering of an animal for my own benefit. I'm also the mother of an 8 1/2 year old son. In less than an hour, I'll be putting our dog down. I've had...

    Computer nerves

    I really need to install a CD burner so that I can get my photos out of the computer and onto discs. I haven't loaded anything from my new Nikon into the computer, and I'm dying to play! I've done it before. I found everything that goes with it. But I keep putting it off. I don't know...

    Storing fresh bread

    How do you keep your freshly made bread? I know I can freeze it. But, how do you keep the bread on the counter, or the fridge, for daily use? Do you entwine it in plastic, stuff it into a ziplock, wrap it in foil, or tuck it into a towel?

    Egg eating Polish

    I am so ticked off! I've had two Polish hens since July. I've only gotten a few eggs from them (they're the only white egg layers I have). I figured I just had a pair of deadbeat chickens, or maybe they're so flighty that they won't lay. I dunno. But, I kept them around. Actually, I...

    Samoan chickens

    My mother-in-law lives in Pago Pago. I've been trying to talk her into getting chickens. There have GOT to be chickens in Pago Pago! She loves spending time outside with her flowers,etc. and I think chickens would be perfect for her. I need to connect her with others that are flock owners.

    Topics marked as read

    Sometimes, I log on to the site, but I don't read everything that I want to. The next time I come on, forums are marked as read. I haven't read them. My husband hasn't read them. Is a gremlin reading or marking as read? Sandra

    My new rescue - Sad and lengthy update

    I must be out of my mind! I brought this guy home yesterday. We have been wanting a Rottweiler, but had decided that we were going to get one from a reputable breeder. I've dragged home many dogs over the years, and hadn't planned on dragging home another LOL. But he's so sweet! I hope...
