I have a Cook’s Collection 8 quart pressure cooker. The model number is Y 22. It came
from JC Penney’s. I removed the lid and mistakenly laid it down on a hot burner and
ruined the gasket. I cannot find a replacement gasket. I have searched the net and called JC Penney’s. They cannot help me. Does anyone know where I might find a replacement gasket? I loved the cooker and would hate to discard it.

Carbs and Nutrition Facts - Top 151 Foods

For a Low Carb Breading

Try Pork rinds -- the ones that are in the aisle with the potato chips. They have no
carbs and make a nice crunchy snack.

You can just put them in a baggie, and use a rolling pin or just your hands, and smash
them up -- keep smashing and you'll eventually get the consistency of bread crumbs.

Mix crushed to desired size pork rinds with parmesan cheese, coat chicken pieces with
them, and bake. They come out nice and crispy. Something crunchy.

Roll egg covered asparagus in crushed pork rinds, and bake.

Chop coconut to finer bits and roll stuff in it. Much easier on the Carb counts than any
sort of bread or cracker crumbs.

Also you can finely chop any kind of nuts to blend with the coconut and be even better!  Or use all nuts and do away with the Carb count on the crust entirely?.

Panko really is a unique and wonderful product.
LOW carb, not NO carbs.

A little Panko every now and then is something you should allow yourself...just not too

Chicken Leg quarters.
If you want them crispy, place them under the broiler for a few minutes, when finished
cooking in the oven.

Place quarters in oven at 450 for about half an hour or until no longer pink.
Also, wrapping in bacon will make them moist, and the bacon would be crispy also.

Polenta chicken and gravy recipe. Correction.

Please forgive me, guess I didn't do a good job of proof reading my recipe for chicken
and gravy.

It should read: "Fry chicken in olive oil and butter until brown on both sides," etc.

I wanted to say thanks to you Nancy for all your work to make this sight happen!! I enjoy it so very much! You are the very best!!!

Also to Laura in CT for the wonderful Apple Cake Recipe, I had to go home that night and make it. I shared slices with friends and they too loved it!

And to Susan in Virginia who shared her recipe for making vegetable stock. WOW! love that idea and thanks so much to all who share! Blessings and love to you!

I accidentally discovered chia seeds in the grocery store (with the flour not in the flower section as they are the same thing that is sold with the “CHIA PET”) and remember them being mentioned in a book I had read as a food used for energy by the Aztecs. I had not realized they were something available today so I purchased a
package and made a lemon bread using the recipe on the package.It was a bit like lemon poppy seed bread. I was asked for the carb count and discovered it was not mentioned on the recipe so I began a web search for more information and discovered that the chia seed is being described as a superfood so I was wondering if anyone had
any recipes or uses that they have tried and might want to share. Besides the bread, I
sprinkled some in my granola. From what I read it sounds like it can be easily added to dips, smoothies shakes or almost anything.

I really love to see the recipes form grandmas files or cook books but I am afraid this
ingredient predates even great grandma.

For Fran/Utica NY
Hi Fran, Yes, the cookie dough is very tender and flaky. Especially when they come out of the oven. This is the way the recipe was given to me. I learned how to put everything together by watching my mom make these cookies year after year.

Soup Recipes
Good afternoon Nancy and all.

I attended a Birthday Tea today at a Tea House and had an amazing soup which was delicious. I purchased one of their small cookbooks which had the recipe in it. Just for your info Nancy, the cookbook is not copyrighted. I plan to make it, not only because it is so good, but it is also very east to make. I will also share a couple of other rather different recipes, I think. The soup which I had today was the Creamy Asparagus Soup.

There are many interesting recipes in the book and I will share them as I get them typed.
