My grandma always put rivels in potato soup. . . But I never got the recipe from her. Would appreciate someone telling me how to make them! I tried flour, egg & salt, but it was just a lump of dough.
Thanks Grams.

Thanks to Bill for sharing tips and recipes on a low carb diet; they are greatly appreciated. Also, congratulations on your weight loss!

I need some help. I am an addicted sweet eater. I am also Type 2 Diabetic. Two weeks ago I gathered up ALL the pie, cookies and pastries in the house and put them in the trash. Since then I've had one muffin. Have decided to try and make my own rather than buying them so that I can have better control of the ingredients.

I'm sure you have recipes for some delicious muffins, pastries etc. that you could share so I can at least eat healthier sweets. Would you please share? I recently saw a cake recipe using the entire orange, skin all. Any ideas on how we can make muffins like that?
Thank you. Anita in Camarillo

Karen TX asked for ideas for an anniversary party in the 2/17 newsletter. Serving a variety of salads has always gone over very well with any large function that we have held. You could do the traditional potato salad, coleslaw, pasta salad and include various vegetable, bean, fruit, seafood and chicken salads. If serving appetizers, you could have stuffed mushrooms, stuffed cherry tomatoes, tortilla roll-ups, vegetable pizza, and/or cheese balls and various crackers. Playing popular music from the years that the couple dated and wed adds a nice flair to the event. Lots of pictures of the couple can be used to decorate. One of the nicest things I have seen done is to have everyone invited write about a favorite memory of the couple and put the stories in a memory book. Some of the stories could be shared at the event. If their are grandkids and they are old enough, they often enjoy sharing their favorite moments with Grandma and Grandpa. Let us know, if you need punch, dessert, salad or other recipes. Good Luck with your party.

I don't have a recipe request, but I do need some help. I need a new stove. I prefer gas. But I am confused on what to buy. Several have a fifth burner, some small, some oblong. Some have convection cooking. Some are manual clean, some self-cleaning. Has anyone purchased a gas stove lately and could give me their opinion of what stove they bought and what their likes and dislikes are? I would sure appreciate your input.

Hi Nancylanders. I have lost a recipe I had for red cabbage. I think I got it in some recipe cards put out by Betty Crocker back in the 70's or 80's. It called for bacon, red cabbage, brown sugar, vinegar, flour, and a couple of other ingredients. It was one of my husband's favorites, and I can't find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much in advance, someone on the site always seems to be able to come through with just the right recipe that's being requested.
Marsha, Los Angeles CA

Nancylanders, let me tell you it don't get any easier than this to make a GREAT dessert. I made this recipe for the first time yesterday and it came out better than fantastic. Just two (2) ingredients, an electric or hand mixer, a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish or pan and a preheated oven - what's not to like about this one?

Pineapple Angel Food Cake

1 box Betty Crocker angel food cake mix
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple (undrained)

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl beat together the cake mix and the undrained can of crushed pineapple. Mix for 1 minute on low speed then for 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a rubber spatula.
Pour the batter into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch ungreased baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Allow the cake to cool then cut into squares and serve with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream (top with pineapple ice cream topping, if desired).
12 to 16 servings.

Cook's Note: Do not add oil or eggs to this cake mix recipe. Be sure to use Betty Crocker cake mix with only one bag inside the box. The angel food cake mixes with two bags will not work with this recipe.
