I bought two of those at TJ Maxx, and several smaller ones too, all for a song. I use them a lot. But like S. Kessler, I have Emile Henry ones I paid a lot for, and I do prefer them.

Hi Cheryl:
"I have to read up on what to do next."

I googled "growing ginger at home" and got a whole bunch of hits. eHow has all kinds of great info on this.

Your progress is EXCITING! And it give me hope for my own attempts at this, due to begin tomorrow!

I use a salad spinner quite frequently. I was skeptical about this at first, because I couldn't see how spinning water off of lettuce leaves was going to make a big difference. Yet somehow it does. A friend of mine had one and I was amazed at how good the salad was (I've never been overly fond of salad, but I have to admit the spinner does wonders). I have two now, one for a big salad and one for a single portion. Everybody who has had salad made using the spinner has raved about how good it is :-)

S. Kessler says:
By drying the greens, you provide a better surface for the oil in the dressing to adhere to. If the greens are wet, the oil will just slide off and excess water in the greens will also dilute the flavor of the dressing.

joaniepony,
No problem! I think I'm pretty well set with the Cuisinart Blender and my juicers. I keep entering contests for Vitamix and Blendtec on Facebook. You never know!

Saw on one of the other forums, you bought a new food processor (Cuisinart 16-cup model from W/S) and gave it to your daughter. Lucky girl!

Growing papaya from seed.

The trick is to put your question into the google search box. Google corrected your question to "grow a papaya tree from seed"
an came up with MANY hits. Check it out!

Supposedly easy and fun to grow - buit a tree, not a plant.

Have fun!

Haven't read through all the postings, so I apologize if this has been mentioned already, but one of the best kitchen gadgets I've ever used are automatic can openers. My favorite one has been Black and Decker Ergo but for a while I used another one (I think called OneTouch, I think) that used batteries. They really help the hands/wrists/shoulders a *lot*.

Sorry, haven't posted here previously. So this probably isn't the correct way. However, I'm looking for a good 2-slice toaster that will toast, do bagels, with accurate settings and no burning! Not looking for a very expensive one, just one to replace the one I bought at Costco that burns most things and takes forever to toast, and has a yukky taste to the toast. Thanks for your help.

I have a Hamilton Beach toaster that does the job quite well and is a little more expensive than the cheap ones, but not as much as the high-end ones, and it works very well. Hamilton Beach 22110 Eclectrics All-Metal 2-Slice Toaster, Sterling

I have an Oster, 2 long slots toaster. Bought at Walmart and words great, very even toasting.

Toaster:

Got a GREAT on at Target - T-Fal Avante - does bagels, bread, waffles, etc. front slanta for ease and this has a Pop-up lever to bring the toast further out of the toaster so one can pick it up without reaching into the toaster or can use those wooden toast tongs. paid about $12.00 for this some 5-7 years ago - still WONDERFUL Hoppe this is helpful

I also couldn't live w/o my two toaster ovens.I've used the regular oven once only because the turkey couldn't fit in the mini. Once hubby learned preparing steak in a toaster oven chares it. a whole lot of items were prepared in it. Two of m friends started theirs more

When my wall oven went out, while I was looking for a new one, we lived on a large toaster oven and a grill (I cooked a beef tenderloin outside that Christmas because in the South you can do that). Now the toaster oven is in the attic. I enjoyed the large one, but man did it take up some space.

I am impressed that you have room for two toaster ovens! But then again, I even resent the space my microwave takes up and am looking for an excuse to get rid of it lol.

I don't find I use a small toaster oven enough to justify owning one. We don't eat wheat much, so we never toast.
