I formed a cooking club where we choose a different ingredient each month, and then bring a dish that incorporates that ingredient. This month, it's black beans. I think nobody else will bring a dessert, so I'd like to try to make black bean brownies. My issue is that when I...Read more

Hello all, I'm looking for a rabbit recipe my French Canadian boyfriend's mother made each Christmas Eve to eat before going to church at midnite. We lived in Halifax, NS. My memory is a little fuzzy 'cause I'm going back to the late '60s and being a teenager...Read more
What do Hounds know about these things, sold in Bed, Bath & Beryond and other stores? They supposedly keep vegetables fresh far longer than normal. Do you seal them or leave them open? Do you tuck in a paper towel after washing the vegetables? Are they reusable? Do they, in...Read more
