Here's an link to a web video community for sharing recipes

Watch actor Christopher Walken roast a chicken with pears

Or watch vincenzof cook parmesan puffs (and learning not to put the paper plate near an open flame and after it catches on fire, what happens when he tries to put it out with an oily utensil.) LOL!

Also, here's a link for something a little different
"Cookin' With Jolene The Trailer Park Queen Show"

Good for early or late season berries that are not all that sweet.

Glazed strawberries and cantaloupe

1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled, washed, and halved
1/2 of a ripe cantaloupe, seeds scooped out, skin removed
1 tbs finely crushed raw sugar

Preheat the broiler, arrange the strawberries cut-side-down in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the sugar.  Broil for 4 to five minutes until the sugar melts and starts to bubble. Slice melon into thin wedges and arrange on a plate. Top the melon with the strawberries and serve.

Plum Ketchup

Really good with pork, turkey, or game. This will keep for one week in the fridge, six months in the freezer.

3lb. red or black plums, pitted and halved.
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/3-2/3 cup packed light brown sugar (depends on your taste and sweetness of plums)
2/3 cup cider vinegar
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 inches of cinnamon stick

Combine everything in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally until the plums are mush - use a potato masher if you want to speed things along, or a heat-resistant hand blender. Remove from heat, fish out the cinnamon stick, and pour it unto a pan for better cooling, then into your containers.

If you need a thicker ketchup to use as a spread, try adding one tablespoon of grated apple per pound of fruit at the start of cooking.

You can also make this with cherries, apricots, or peaches - try the cherry over grilled duck and the apricot or peach as a glaze on chicken.
