Turmeric is kind of pepper-y although its a bit bitter as well. It doesn't have such a strong smell though it does smell a bit like ginger. Its bright yellow. Hope that helps!

Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix

Have you ever wanted to make a recipe that calls for "pumpkin pie spice" but don't have it in your pantry? It turns out, pumpkin pie spice in made from things that most people already have so there's no need to go out and spend the money on another spice that's just going to sit on the shelf. Instead, you can make your own with stuff you probably already have lying around your spice rack.

Here is all you need to make your own pumpkin pie spice:
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 3 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Take these ingredients and put them in a small mason jar or some tupperware and shake them up good.

You don't need to use exact measurements and can alter to your own taste. My kids hate the taste of ginger so I usually cut it by about half.

On a side note, pumpkin pie spice tastes great sprinkled on your morning coffee or over your late night scoop of vanilla ice cream!

A bag full of chicken - Quick and easy recipe for chicken in oven bags

A few weeks ago i had to quickly make a big tray of chicken legs and thighs and had no time to be paying much attention to it.
Therefore I took a big oven bag and improvised a recipe. It came out delicious! Here is what i did:
I set the chicken (about 15 legs and thighs) in a big oven bag and i poured in it a half cup of olive oil and some spices (of each spice i spread around the amount of a teaspoon circa): black papper, tumeric, grill mix, sweet paprika and a bit of sugar and salt.
I also added some little diced potatoes and sweet potatoes, i closed the bag real tight and i started shaking it and making sure that all the oil and spices were covering every part of the chicken.
Then i set the bag on an aluminium tray (so that when it leaked it wouldn't stain the oven) and put it in the oven at about 160 degrees Celsius for about an hour until the chicken looked well cooked and the potatoes soft.
I suggest flipping the bag every once in a while so to mix the contents and allow the food to cook uniformly. I also suggest to avoid putting the bag too close to the sides of the oven and to it's top because it might burn little holes in the bag and leak.
The chicken cooked this way will stay moist and soft, and at the same time intensely tasty!
Bon Apetit!

I have a techumseh snow blower 5.5 engine. I need to know what type of fuel it needs. It says on the outside something about a 50:1 oil gas mix and lists some types of oils. Where can I get these oils,...

go to your hardware store and ask for some 2 cycle 50:1 oil, mix that with a gallon of gas and you're good to go. Before you mix, make sure that you read the oil container for it's recommendations! You can purchase a small container of oil that is all measured for 1 gallon of gas

Mixing engine coolants?

toyota did some good research years ago .. they found that anti freeze that contain silicates caused excessive wear in the water pump seals .. most antifreeze at that time contained silicates .. so toyota developed their own type .. and they charged a lot for it .. it was red in color .. it was designed to last a long time and cut seal wear to a minimum (no silicates) .. so it was a good idea to use their super antifreeze .. now almost all antifreeze can mix with other types but do you reallly want to contaminate the expensive stuff already in your car with something that might contain silicates .. in this case toyota has a good reason for recommending certain types of antifreeze .. of course they used to recommend only their own brand but i hope that has changed .. i would use only long life antifreeze that is recommended by toyota or that states "contains no silicates" .. even buying their expensive stuff isnt so bad since it lasts so long and the echo uses so little. .. i am not sure what the new long life antifreeze contains ... did they ever address that problem ?..

Dishwasher insulation for heat

Hi marseibold,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your questoin is: You're wondering if you can further insulate your dishwasher for heat. You are redoing your kitchen, new appliances, cabinets, etc. and shortsightedly put the spice sliding pull-out cabinet next to the dishwasher. The spices get warm when you use the dishwasher. There is a bit of room between the cabinet and dishwasher. Any recommendations for further insulation?

Yes. I would get another insulation blanket off a d/w I'm disposing. Anyway, you need to get one and install it over the old one to decrease the heat transfer.

Feel free contact me again!
