The other day I fried chicken was on sale. I Froze what I couldn't eat right away. Tonight I got out a couple of the pieces to warm them up in the oven. My favorite thing to do is to put the pieces in a Pam sprayed pan and put a little BBQ sauce on them. Heat them in the oven for about 30 to 45 minutes. It smells so good and tastes just as good that way.

In response to several questions re: Sugar Free Cakes from Walmart. The ones I am mentioning are not from the Bakery.

Pillsbury Makes 3 Sugar Free Products: Yellow Cake Mix, Chocolate Cake Mix and Chocolate Brownie Mix. I have found it at Walmart, Publix, Winn-Dixie. I think Kroger carries it also. It is usually placed low on the shelves by all the Cake Mix Products. Sugar Free is posted very prominently on the top of the box.They are much lower in carbs than Regular Cake Mix.
Hope this helps.

Fresh Apple Pie

1-2 tsp lemon Juice
1-2 Tbsp flour, (if fruit is very juicy)
2/3 cup sugar Or half Granulated, half Brown
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon Rind, Grated
6 cups tart Apples (2 Lbs juicy ones), thinly sliced, pared, cored
1 Tbsp butter

[Note: pastry for 9" two-crust pie]
Start heating oven to 425°F. Line 9" pie plate with pastry. Combine lemon juice with flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, lemon rind. (Amount of sugar depends on tartness of apples.) Place half of apples in plate, sharp edges inward. Sprinkle with half of sugar mixture. Top with rest of apples, heaping in center, then rest of sugar mixture. Dot with butter; adjust top crust making slits or initial. Glaze. Bake 40 to 50 min., or until apples test tender with fork and crust is brown.

Apple Cream Pie:
Before adjusting top crust, pour 2/3 cup heavy cream, slightly whipped, over apples.

Apple Nut Pie:
Add 1/2 cup chopping nuts to sugar.

Holiday Apple Pie:
Sprinkle 3 tablespoon brandy through vents in crust when pie is done.

I think this was originally in one of those Pillsbury slim books that you get in the Grocery stores.

If you are looking for a different way to prepare potatoes, consider giving this a try. You can brown ground beef and add to the dish for a one pot meal.

This is for Marcia L, who wanted pizza sauce recipes in the 3/22 newsletter. You may need to experiment with the spices to find the exact taste you desire, but this is the recipe I have used for a long time. I do not add salt or the honey/sugar, so it is much healthier than most store bought sauces.

Pizza Sauce

15 oz can tomato sauce
6 oz. can tomato paste
1-1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs basil
1 tbs oregano
1 tbs honey or sugar - I omit this

Mix all and let sit for about an hour until flavors blend. Better if it sits longer. Freezes well.

At my Walmart in Idaho they have Sugar Free Cake Mix and SF Brownie mix in the cake mix section. Also at Walmart in the Bakery they have sugar free pies. I especially like the Cherry Pie.

Re: I am going to an Easter Brunch. An Easter basket will be provided for each person (15 of us). We have been asked to bring something to put in everyone's basket. Last year I brought a decorated Easter cookie. My husband brought small bags of mixed nuts. I need some ideas other than chocolate bunnies. Can you help?

Margo, Have you thought about amazon dvds? You can get them super cheap. There is everything, of course, and if done by Palm Sunday, you will have them in plenty of time.

This is for Marvus TX, who recently asked about a device or tool for evenly cutting homemade bread.

I turn my bread out unto a cookie cooling rack. It has lines like your oven rack. It leaves marks on the bottom of the bread that make nice cutting guide to slice. I then use a Electric Cutting knife to slice it. It goes right through and slices beautiful.

Dear Nancy,
My dear mother-in-law gave me some great recipes. As I remember them, I will send them in. The best thing about my ex was his Mom, and my sisters-in-laws. God sure works in mysterious ways. I joined your news letter when you had 5000 subscribers. I did send in a suggestion for a childrens birthday party, the 1 to 2 year set. One of my neighbors had a dump truck deliver sand in her front yard. There were several wading pools and the kids had a blast. I said to remember the sunscreen. My old neighbor, then put a sign in her front yard that read free sand. The sand was all gone in 2 or 3 days. If I ever get to be a Grandma, my girl/boy twins are 29, I am going to do this.
Have a blessed week full of Grace and an exceptional Easter.
Best Wishes, Diane S
