  1. Well Kim, all very commendable but wouldn't a real chef make their own REAL stuffing by using fresh herbs, sausagemeat flour, eggs etc etc And while on the subject of real....Have you yet to learn how to "make" gravy from meat stock... Tut Tut I Only 7 out of 10 this time. I would hope to mark higher for your next attempt

  2. This site is about nice easy and tasty meal. Not everyone whats to get that heavily involved and sometimes, simple is always the best if in doubt.

    I love to cook and cook very well I do. Lets see one of yours!
