  • Yahoo! Top Ten Searches Of 2010

    Yahoo! recently published their Top Ten Searches of 2010 and I thought you all needed to see them:

    1. BP oil spill

    Aunt Judy's Wild Rice Stuffing

    ½ pound sliced mushrooms

    2 cups chopped celery

    2 cups chopped onions

    1 cup butter, divided

    6 cups bread cubes

    1 cup chopped pecans

    1 teaspoon sage

    1 teaspoon thyme

    ½ teaspoon pepper

    1 cup cooked wild rice

    1 cup broth (chicken or vegetable)

    Saute the mushrooms, celery and onions in ½ cup butter until soft. In large bowl, combine bread cubes, pecans, sage, thyme and pepper. Add vegetable-butter mix and stir to combine.
