    I wish I could eat sweet potatoes. They smell so good, but as soon as that nasty slick, yet grainy, texture hits my tongue, my gag reflex kicks in.

    I'm cooking a spiral ham on Wednesday to take over to my daughter's. I want to try to make it like a Honeybaked ham. I have the propane torch and all. Anyone ever done that?

    i wrapped the roast in cheesecloth that i change every day and i keep it in a designated fridge for 4 to 6 days like that. when you pull it out, you shave off the dry bits and/or discolored bits from the edges and then roast it. the dry aging allows amino acids in the meat to break it down and reduce moisture which intensifies the beefy flavor. i've heard this makes the best roasts.

    I probably won't be able to. I just had shoulder surgery today and will be operating on one wing. I will let you know how it comes out.
