I think I will stick with my use of white and brown sugar, sugar in the raw, and maple syrup and honey. Its sugar, its sweet, it is supposed to have calories!

Its from oils and residue from baking and broiling that find themselves at home on the racks and the guides. Clean the oven, clean the shelves, and apply a touch of oil to the edges of the racks. Use a papertowel to rub a tiny bit on, not wanting it to be goopy and gloppy.

The only type of fiddle head that is edible is the Ostrich Fern.
I love them sauteed with ramps and a little bit of butter.
Truth be told, I have never paid for either of them in my life, but know where to pick them in the spring time.

PAPER BAGS!

My secret is roasting the chicken in a paper bag. Rub the outside of the bird with a little bit of crisco, rub the inside of the bag with crisco as well. Stuff whatever you want into the bird, season with any seasonings you choose, place in paper bag and staple shut.

Roast in oven at 350 for 12 minutes per pound or until internal temp reaches 165.

Golden brown, moist and juicy, LOVE IT.

For any of the above that don't seem to work the best with dish cloths because of sanitary reasons, wash the cloth in hot and soapy water and either run through the dishwasher if you have one, or pull out your steamer and steam the cloth on the stove top, then air dry.
For draining bacon and fried goodies, I always use newspaper or paper bags to drain them. They are very absorbent, and I always seem to have them on hand.

Currently I use sponges, although my preference is for dishcloths. Not having a washing machine at home, I have a hard time letting the dishcloths sit in a pile for a week or two before getting to the laundromat. When I have a washing machine again it is dishcloths all the way. I will also be able to stop using paper towels for cleaning when I have a washing machine again for the same reasons! I have lots of rags, they work really well, but hate letting them sit around till I get to the laundromat.
