Chinese Porkchops

6 boneless pork chops
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 cloves garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste

Place pork chops in slow cooker.
Combine remaining ingredients and pour over pork chops.
Cook on Low setting for about 4 hours, or until internal temperature of pork has reached 160 degrees.

This is FABULOUS over rice and broccoli. If you like your sauce thick, about 30 min before your chops are done, take them out and add about 1 TBSP of cornstarch to the sauce and stir to thicken. Place chops back in and finish cooking.

My father was an excellent cook. He passed away in 1999 and I found this recipe when I went through the cookbooks. I still have the clothespin that held it together. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

Plum Upside Down Cake

7 T butter or margarine, divided
3/4 c sugar, divided
3-4 plums, pitted and thinly sliced
1 egg
1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1/3 c milk
1 t vanilla extract

Place 1 T butter in a 9-inch round cake pan. Place in a 350 degree oven to melt the butter. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/3 c sugar. Arrange plum slices in a circular pattern over sugar and bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cream the remaining butter with the remaining sugar, beat in egg. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with mil and vanilla, beating until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over baked plums.

Bake for 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a large serving platter. Serve warm.
Serves 6-8

Thanks to all the wonderful cooks for their recipes.

I made the Chocolate Chip Cookie or Bars submitted by Phyllis in Montana in the April 16th newsletter. They were awesome. I used a Butter Golden Cake Mix. And, I use parchment paper to line pan. Would be a great recipe for a bake sale item.
This veggie meal went over big at my house.

Black Bean and Mushroom Chilaquiles
Serves: 6

2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion (chopped)
1 medium green bell pepper seeded cored and chopped
1 jalepeno or serrano pepper seeded and minced
2 cans (about 15 oz) black beans rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes undrained
10 oz white mushrooms cut into quarters
1-1/2 tsp ground cumin
1-1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese plus additional for garnish
6 cups baked tortilla chips

Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion & peppers. Cook stirring occasionally, until onion softens. Transfer to slow cooker. Add beans, tomatoes with juice, mushrooms, cumin & oregano. Cover and cook on low 6 hours or 3 hours on high.

Remove cover and sprinkle 1 cup of cheese over beans and mushrooms. Cover again and cook until cheese melts; stir to combine melted cheese. For each serving, coarsely crush 1 cup tortilla hips in individual serving bowl. Top with black bean mixture; sprinkle with additional cheese if desired.
Notes: You can even add diced chicken for a heartier meal.

Nancy, I wish to thank the people that sent in suggestions about bursitis but my family doctor had other ideas. He wants me to get a second option from a foot and ankle doctor. Will this doctor see patients on the south side on Monday and Wednesday,since I'm not driving right now, my DH has so much going on at work on Monday that I had to make the appointment on a Wednesday on May 29, that is 5 weeks away. When I called the family doctor he is seeing me on Saturday of this week. I have no idea what he is going to do or tell me to do. I am hoping that I will have some help from having trouble walking.

It has been warm and also down in the 30''s and 40's during the day so we have been having soups and sandwiches at least once a week. I have tried this soup but cut back the angel hair pasta to 4 to 5 oz. I'm sure that it taste great with a ½ lb of pasta.

Angel Hair and Three Onion Soup

4 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lb. baby (pearl) onions, fresh or ½ frozen bag, thawed
1 medium red onion, sliced thin
1 medium Vidalia onion or other sweet onion, sliced thin
6 cups, 48 oz., chicken stock
salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 lb. angel hair pasta, broken in 2" pieces
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
4 teaspoon Romano cheese

Place oil and all onions in a large sauce pan over low heat and saute, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes, until onions are golden. Add stock and salt to taste. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and simmer for about 1 hour.

Add pasta and parsley and cook until pasta is just al denote.

Ladle into soup bowls. Sprinkle with grated Romano cheese.

Everyone have a great day. Nancy and 4 legged associates stay safe, take care and comfortable.

Hi Nancy, precious furkids and all Landers,

A "thank you" from me to Lynn FL/WI for submitting her Pumpkin Cake recipe back on 2/12/13. I finally got around to making it and it is excellent, quick and easy to put together, and not too bad health-wise. The original recipe as submitted by Lynn called for a yellow cake mix, I had a white cake mix so I used that. And, though I did have all the ingredients for the frosting, I had a Cool Whip Cream Cheese Frosting in the freezer, so decided to try that. The cake is moist and light, and the frosting is light and airy and goes really well with the cake. It's one I'll be making again, especially in warmer weather - if it ever arrives! (Snow flurries here tonight - though nothing major!)

Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken

1 Whole Chicken

Wash the whole chicken and sprinkle with salt?? (or lemon pepper/garlic...whatever seasoning you like)

(I like to use the various rub, and marinade packets just as they come, dry in a shaker, a bit of olive oil rubbed on the meat, then sprinkle with the seasoning of choice, they tend to be a bit salty for me, so I don't add any more salt when I use them.

Place at least 3 (I use 4 or 5 in my oval crock pot) aluminum foil balls (wad up pieces of foil) in the bottom of the crock pot (this keeps the chicken from sitting in the juices) all about 1 inch in diameter.

Place seasoned chicken on top of the foil. Put on the lid and cook on low 6 - 7 hours and presto!. Rotisserie Chicken! (I didn't believe it either---you have to try it!)

I thought I would tell everyone what I made from this NL. I made the Pan Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon sent in by Inez K Texas. They are very good. In the past, I would force myself to eat BS's because they are good for you. In the future I will make this recipe. It's very tasty. I used frozen BS's because that's what I had and let them thaw somewhat and halved them as the recipe states. Try it y'all. I think you will like it. Instead of turning
heat up high with the onion and BS's cooking together, I started the BS's by themselves until they got color and then added the onion. Worked out well.

Here is my entry into the blueberry pie collection. It is from my aunt's handed down recipe collection, I think originally from a magazine. When we were kids, growing up in western Massachusetts, we would go down the road where there was a patch of woods with blueberry bushes on the edge. It was a real treat to bring back a bucket of blueberries and watch my aunt turn it into a wonderful pie. Remember free food?

This also works well with strawberries and rhubarb, alone or together.

Blueberry Custard Pie

3 cups blueberries
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar

Line a 9 inch piepan with pastry. Fill with blueberries. Combine the other 4 ingredients and pour over fruit. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hr. or until jiggling in the middle is about gone.

Nancy I am sorry but I don't have a recipe but a question for related. I have been making this meatloaf for a couple of months and can't get the vegetables done in an hour and 15 minutes of cooking. Yes, the vegetables are diced finely and mix with a an egg, catsup, ½ cup bread crumb, salt to taste, pepper to taste and 2 lbs. 90% to 95% fat free beef. I mix all throughly and put in a loaf pan or on a cookie sheet at 350 for an hour and 15 minutes. I bring the loaf out and let rest for 10 to 20 minutes before slicing. Last night it fell apart but we still had it. I have no idea why the vegetables don't cook because they are celery, carrots and onions. After all the years that I have cooked dI have no idea what the 2 problems are. Thanks for any help you people can give me.

Everyone have a get day. Nancy and 4 legged associates take care stay safe and comfortable.

Hi Nancy,
I hope you and the litle ones are doing well. A friend of mine asked me to submit a request for a recipe for chocolate chip cookiesl. She said they were made some time after WW II, and they were flat and crispy. Does anybody have a recipe for this type of cookie?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for all the baked fish recipes! I can't wait to try all of them. To answer Marilyn in FL, I have only had fish in sauce a couple of times when eating out. I believe both times the sauce had tomatoes. One recipe I would like to duplicate is on the buffet at our local Sirloin Stockade. It is fish baked on a bed of rice with some kind of crab and cheese mixture on top the fish. Does anyone have a recipe similar to that?

Louise in Alabama wants to know why her Granny Bread isn’t turning out. It only calls for 3 cups of flour and that makes ONE loaf of bread. The recipe says to separate the dough into two loaves. You will get flat crackers if you do that.
