I have never sent in a recipe to Nancy, so I hope I'm doing this right.
PeggyNELA (Northeast Louisiana?) wrote in about her mom's rice pudding.

(I am from Central Louisiana). It sounds very much like my grandmother's recipe.
This is the only rice pudding my husband will eat!

Maw Maw's Rice Pudding

1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. vanilla
raisins (or craisins) to taste (optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Grease (or spray with Pam) a 1-2 quart baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.

This makes a much denser, more solid, rice pudding than all the other recipes I have seen.

This is for Robbie in IN. How long do you cook the ramein noodles in the butter for the Ramein Noodle Salad recipe that was posted on Sunday, Feb. 3rd? This sounds like it would make a great lunch.

Sorry, I should have also added this question to my question I sent in a little while ago. Do you use the flavor packet that comes with the noodles? This question is for Robbie in IN.
Thanks. Marsha, Los Angeles, CA.

I haven't sent any recipes lately as I am learning a new computer. It has been a headache. We fixed this for the Super-Bowl and we really liked it. Enjoy !!!

In the 2/1 newsletter Gay wanted ideas for her daughter, who is on a low carb diet. Plain yogurt, especially Greek yogurt with low carb fruits, such as blackberries or raspberries are a good option. Egg dishes, such as scrambled eggs, hard cooked eggs, crustless quiches and frittatas are also good options, assuming you use low carb ingredients. There are also some low carb cereals now on the market, which she may want to try. Good Luck to her on her diet and change in life style.

Mini Frittatas

8 large Eggs 1/2 Cup whole milk
Salt and pepper to taste
4 ounces chopped ham
1/3 Cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Spray 2 mini muffin tins (each with 24 cups) with nonstick spray. Whisk the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt in a large bowl to blend well. Stir in the ham, cheese, and parsley. Fill the muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittatas from the muffin cups and slide the frittatas onto a platter. Serve immediately. These can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave and can also be frozen and reheated in the microwave.

My son is getting married in August and we need around 2500 cookies. I am NOT a baker, just a cook. But anyone have some easy but tasty recipes for cookies and ways to make ahead and store them? (I appreciate all the help I can get as hubby has cancer and I can not always bake depending on treatment, etc., so have to do when I can) JOY

Re: In the Jan 15, 2013 N/L Judy in Montana sent in a recipe for Tea Tart Nut Cups that sounds terrific. One question Judy. Are these baked in “mini” cupcake pans or regular cupcake pans?? Thanks for the great recipe. Thank you Nancy for all your hard work.
Ditamac FL/MI

If I may also answer her question, I bake these in the "mini" pans at the holidays. Bake at 350º for 20 -25 minutes or until lightly brown. If using a non-stick pan reduce the temperature to 325º and add several minutes to baking time.
