Don’t overcook or the squash will become mushy inside. It only takes a couple of minutes per side. Remove squash and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.

    Hi,Mary. When a print option isn't available, I like to copy and paste my recipes to a Word document. There, I can edit however I want, save to my recipe folder, and print when needed.

    Mary,
    If you'll notice to the left a set of "Share" buttons. At the bottom there is one that looks like a sunshine. If you scroll over it you will get more options and one of those options is to print the page.

    Do you use the same batter for fried okra or just cornmeal?
