    I have some cod that I had steamed but the texture was wrong. It was kind of rubbery. I put it in the freezer a couple weeks ago. Now I'm wondering, if it is undercooked, could I just thaw it, saute it a little and make a soup out of it?

    Not one to really look or follow directions....I just put the squash in the crockpot with seasonings (down south that includes bacon grease) and added hot water. Turned it on high and let it go...... you can tell a difference from fresh, but it was still good and hubby ate it. That's the test...

    We get a ham for Christmas every year and I always freeze some of the leftovers (for sandwiches, soup, casseroles, etc), but can you freeze a whole ham to have a meal later? Do you just thaw in fridge and then heat up as usual? TIA

    We had ribs done in the crockpot on Sunday. I've done leftovers sandwiches from them, and am so over having them. There is still a portion left on the bone and I was wondering if I could just freeze it on the bone to use to make a stew with later. I would go ahead and make a stew, but in the...

    Ground turkey seems to so much more fragile than ground beef that is cooked outdoors on the BBQ grill. Is there something that I should add to ground turkey before making burgers out of them, so that they do not fall apart on the BBQ grill? Thanks in advance for all replies. auntie

    In case it matters, my normal meatball recipe includes egg, oatmeal, fresh onions. Also, should they be in a sauce when frozen? If so, what type of sauce?
