I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

A life-long curiosity drives my interests ranging from creative writing, photo-editing, music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment What is a good way to cook Turkey Chops?
@derobert, they look like cross-sections of large turkey legs, with that center bone being the femur.

Are you sure it's not the cooking spray adding the flavor?

If you change lettuce to cabbage, it sounds like Cole Slaw.

comment How do cooking utensils remain safe for use?
Better to be safe than gamble on possible or degree of contamination. Wash the tongs after using them on raw meat.

comment What could cause a sudden loss of sour flavor?
My mom's Pflaumkuchen (plum cake), similarly sounding to the OP's, had the same results quite often. If slightly underripe plums are used to top the cake, they may retain some tartness immediately after baking but would mellow to just a nice sweet flavor by the 2nd day. I don't know the cause, I just experienced it almost every time.

comment What do I need to get started with American style Barbecue?
@SAJ14SAJ, actually, some things are better with the high-heat grill method such as steaks so ElendilTheTall may need to understand that distinction. Smoker for slow-cooking, high-heat for searing and "grilling". Hubby and I grill all the time and find the chimney starter invaluable for getting the bbq briquettes going.
