Default Turkey Wrap

I was at the store and they had a turkey wrap, it was kind of expensive but I bought it anyway.
it was really good so I started thinking about what was made of:

flower tortilla
lettuce
tomato
sliced turkey
a few pieces of onion
salad dressing

So I started making my own,
I also add avocado sometimes.

it is very easy and fast to make,
it takes a surprising amount of salad dressing to make it taste like the ones in the store.

The reason many people get fat.


It is often difficult to have everything on hand to build whatever you want to build. Spices, herbs etc can be expensive and don't last long in storage. This is esp true for single people. This is one of the reasons people just eat out
I hate wasting food. Faces of people who have little to eat haunt me.


I am glad to hear that you are having fun? I keep trying to get you more involved.

Default Cake Pan Size Conversions

Cake Pan Size Conversions
http://dish.allrecipes.com/cake-pan-size-conversions/

If you have an unusual pan size and would like to figure out its capacity, measure the amount of water it takes to fill the pan.

Compare that measurement to the volumes in our chart (or the cake pan size listed in your recipe) to determine how much batter you’ll need.
To ensure a cake rises evenly, you should only fill your pans to the half-way mark.
The baking time may change as well, so it is imperative that you keep a watchful eye on your cake, and check for doneness using your preferred method.
It’s always better to have a little extra batter, rather than not enough. Once you’ve filled the pans half-full, use any remaining batter to bake a few cupcakes.

Default Hot Fudge Sauce Made with Cocoa

Hot Fudge Sauce Made with Cocoa



It’s easy. Be sure to mix the cocoa and granulated sugar together before cooking to eliminate any lumps and make a smooth sauce.
Ramstadt Breda Rich Dark Cocoa with three times the cocoa butter of most store brands was used. Other quality brands will work.

We made this both with 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup cocoa. Both work. Of course you get a little deeper flavor with 3/4 cup cocoa.

As with other hot fudge sauces, this thickens as it cools. You can rewarm it in the microwave. You can also thin your sauce with additional cream.

2/3 cup Rich Dark Cocoa or equal
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Mix the cocoa and sugar together in a small bowl. Melt the butter in the microwave.
Add the cocoa and sugar mixture to a small saucepan. Add the melted butter and cream. Heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, until the ganache starts to bubble. Remove from the heat.
Let the ganache cool until it reaches the desired consistency. Thin with additional cream if necessary.
