I'm sorry I'm late. I am out of town and was having issues connecting to my friend's wifi.
Marie Arick
34:23
I would worry it would be dry if you tried cooking it frozen

Has anyone tried calibrating a thermometer before
Marie Arick
37:55
I try calibrate mine each time I use it
Heidi Copeland
37:56
Not all thermometers can be calibrated. Look for the nut!
Jill Breslawski
38:39
I still check mine even if they cannot be calibrated to make sure they are reading properly
Marie Arick
38:43
good point Heidi
Heidi Copeland
38:45
You can use boiling water too. Water boils @ 212 degrees F.
Samantha Kennedy
38:49
I calibrate mine every 2-3 times I use it. And I definitely prefer an analog thermometer over a digital one.
Samantha Kennedy
39:42
Great point, Heidi. But the ice water method is easier and safer.
Heidi Copeland
40:02
AGREE! Expensive is not always better!
Ann Breslawski
40:12
Didn’t know that you couldn’t wash bacteria off. No more baths for my turkey!
Samantha Kennedy
40:14
Great information, Claire! Very nice demo.
Gretchen Thornton

I really like making my own herb seasonings in place of salt!
Claire Reach
42:41
Great idea using spices and herbs instead of extra sugar or salt! I will be using that this year!

USDA has a really interesting publication. Washing Raw Poultry: Our Science, Your Choice
Samantha Kennedy

Who doesn't love mushy veggies? Growing up, I thought that's how they were supposed to be.
Laurie Osgood
44:36
Right Heidi, my mother overcooked all vegetables. It was hard to overcome. ☺️
Claire Reach
45:10
I like this chart! I would have never known how to substitute measurements correctly
Samantha Kennedy
45:21
I really love this graphic!
Amy Mullins
45:43
Applesauce is an excellent substitution!
Marie Arick
46:56
yes we love our sweet potato casserole, but have opted for just baked sweet potatoes
Samantha Kennedy
47:33
"Regular" mashed potatoes are my jam. With gravy, of course. ;)
Jill Breslawski
47:58
I always tell myself that portion control is key but it is so hard to stick to. I love the thought of a healthier version so I can enjoy a bit more over the holiday.
Marie Arick
48:07
I have tried to limit the starchy veggies at holiday meals
Samantha Kennedy
48:12
Dorothy, you're making me hungry! Is it Thanksgiving yet?
Marie Arick
48:28
I know!!! starving now!
Claire Reach
48:39
Portion control is very hard over the holidays 🙃 \

I agree Claire
Gretchen Thornton

Dining with Diabetes has a great Sweet Potato Puff recipe!
Samantha Kennedy

Drink WATER instead of soda, sweet tea, or punch. Helps to decrease empty calories and sugar intake.
Wendy Meredith
52:57
Yes...that gives the sizzle
Wendy Meredith
