Tip of the Day
A hard boiled egg will spin, a raw one will not.

Nancy, I need help finding a Pioneer Bar cookies. I do not know if I got it here or where I got it but when I copied it over to a recipe card I must have left something out. I know it was before Christmas but have not found it in your archives. Hope someone knows what I am taking about.
Mary Ann Upstate N.Y.

I did a search for it on the net.  I put in the search
Pioneer Bar Cookes
and nothing came up.  I then put in the search in quotes and added + cookies
"Pioneer Bar" + cookies
and found the recipe at grouprecipes

1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk

This if for Camille who wanted to increase her appetite while going through chemo. When my husband was going through chemo several patients in the waiting room were discussing this very subject. It seemed strange but the only food that all of them agreed that they loved and ate was chocolate malts. Since my first job out of high school was at the local drive-in I was very good at making malts. Take a blender, put in two large scoops or more of vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, a heaping tablespoon of dry malt (yes you can still get it at the grocery store after all these years - it's a 50's thing), some milk and blend. There really isn't any measuring necessary and you could use other flavors but chocolate seemed to hit the spot with everyone. I liked to make them very thick so you have to start eating with a spoon and as it melted switch to a straw. God Bless You Camille for a quick recovery.

Congratulations on your new computer!

I wish you much good luck and pleasure with your new "friend". We appreciate your continuous efforts to put forth your wonderful newsletter, and your new equipment should make the task easier for you.

It is wonderful to be able to compile this newsletter on a computer that works all the time. I think the new computer needs a name. Anybody got a suggestion for a name for it?

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to Nell for the salt substitute recipe. It sounds great. also my prayers go out to Camille in N.Y.
Laura in Texas

I read the recipe for the Creamy Rice Pudding in the 1/19 N/L that did not include the name of the contributor. It sounds delicious and I would like to try it. My question is: Why 3 egg yolks and not the whole egg?
Thanks, Artemis in NYC

Ditto and Little One are indoor cats and never go outside. Everyday their big excitement is to go out in the garage (with the outside garage door closed) to smell where my car has been. Today I open the door to the garage and let them check it out. A short time later they both came and started to meow at me like something was wrong. After I got up and check out the problem, I found the door to the garage open and the outside garage door open as well. You would think the cats would go right out and check out the outside world. No, not my cats. They wouldn't even go into the garage without the outside garage door closed.

This recipe is from Taste of Home. I made it Friday night with a few revisions and we really enjoyed it. It also heated up well the next day. Instead of ground turkey I used some turkey lunch meat from Costco that needed to be used up. I simply chopped it into small pieces and added it after the onions were about done. I also did not use the cornmeal. I thought that would make it to dry. Hubby said it was a keeper so thought I would share.

I did a search for "pioneer bar cookies" and nothing exactly like that came up. I am wondering if its a recipe she got from Rhee Drummond, the Pioneer Woman? If you search for the Pioneer woman recipes, you will get a lot of her recipes. Most of her recipes are easy and quite good. She also has a show on the food network. I am not connected to her or the show in anyway.

Congratulations on your new computer! I’m very happy for you and can’t think of anyone more deserving. All of us really look forward to your newsletter and now it will be more fun for you to do all the work for our enjoyment. Thank you Nancy and thanks to the fur bodies for supplying various antics that you report. Love to hear them all.

Hoping this helps Camille in Commack, LI: I found that making a small plate of cream cheese and one other kind of cheese with saltines, and one other kind of crackers gradually got me into eating more food. The dish should have eye appeal and not too large.
Madeline in upstate NY

Thank you Sara in Fl Marsha in La Judy in Alaska for the pie recipes.
Bren in Louisiana for the cannoli pie recipe. It sounds great!

I want to send best wishes to Camille in Long Island N.Y. for a speedy recovery. I will add you to my prayers. Stay strong for your kids and eat even if your heart is not in it. Think of all the great times ahead. For something light I love egg salad on Rye bread or on crackers. Simple and not heavy on the tummy.

Good luck. Please let us know how you are doing.

Betty's Foil Packet Chicken Dinner
Serves 1

1 chicken breast
1 potato, peeled and sliced
2 carrots, pared and sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Large pat of butter

Place chicken, potato and carrots on square of foil with the dull side out. Arrange onion slices over all. Season with salt and pepper. Top with pat of butter. Wrap tighly in foil. Broil over hot coals for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is done and potatoes are tender.

Note. I like to separate the onion slices into rings rather than use the whole slice in one piece. This is a great meal for one person and can easily be adapted to two by just making two packets. I love a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce added to the packet. Another variation is to add a tablespoon of barbecue sauce.
