e: What is a spyder and what does it look like?

Re: Spyder (Jan 3rd)
Spyder is just an old-fashioned way of spelling Spider. And a Spider is a frying pan. (Usually cast iron)
Read this article and it will explain why it’s called that.

My DH has asked for an applesauce raisin bundt cake that I baked for him many times in the past but I just cannot, for the life of me, find. I clipped it many years ago from the "Food" section of our local paper. It was a favorite because it was so exceptionally moist.

Does anyone have a TNT recipe for an applesauce raisin cake for a bundt or tube pan that they would be willing to share?

Hi family,
I want to make stuffing with chicken pieces placed over it and baked in the regular oven.I want the chicken pieces to brown without drying out. Last time I didn't have good luck with the chicken getting brown and crispy.
