Maggie B AZ requested brownie recipes using a cake mix in the 5/2 newsletter. These recipe has
been around for many years and I am sure other readers have submitted them in previous
newsletters. There seems to be some differences in cake mixes, so you may need to add a few
more tablespoons of water or milk, or an extra egg to get the consistency that you desire. I am
also guessing that over the years the formulation of cake mixes has change.

Our rhubarb is getting ready to pull, and this is one of the recipes I enjoy making with it, and
often made for Mother's Day when my mother was still with us, as she enjoyed it so much. I'm
sure you could also make it with frozen rhubarb (unthawed).

Crunchy Rhubarb Berry Cake

1-1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
6 tbsp. butter
1 cup chopped nuts

2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. butter
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
4 cups chopped fresh rhubarb, chopped
1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry Jell-O

Prepare topping by combining all ingredients together in medium bowl, until well mixed. Set
aside. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt for cake and cut in butter until
crumbly. Add milk and egg and mix well. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Spoon
rhubarb evenly over the batter and sprinkle with dry Jell-O and then with topping. Bake at 375º
for 50 minutes, or until tests done. Best served slightly warm with whipped cream, but we like it
cold too.

1 package (19.5 oz) turkey Italian sausages, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup finely chopped sweet onion
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped (2 teaspoons)

1 tsp. dried mint
4 1/2 cups uncooked rotini pasta (12 oz)
6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Place slow cooker liner inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly
against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.

Place all vegetables and sausages into the slow cooker. Add oregano, basil, and mint to the jar
of spaghetti saucc. Pour sauce over the contents of slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat

Maple Chocolate Bacon Skewers
Yield: 10 bacon skewers

10 pieces of thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons heavy cream
3 ounces milk or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine

Preheat the oven to 425 and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a metal cooling rack on
the baking sheet. Thread one piece of bacon onto each of 10 wooden skewers, ribbon-candy

Place skewers on the rack and paint each side liberally with maple syrup. Bake for 10 minutes, turn the skewers over and bake for another 10 minutes or until crispy. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.

Heat the cream to boiling, then pour over the chopped chocolate. Let it stand for 5 minutes, then stir until you have a smooth chocolate sauce.

Drizzle the chocolate over one side of the bacon skewers, either with a spoon or by putting the
chocolate sauce in a plastic zippered bag, cutting off one corner and squeezing the sauce out
through the corner. Pop the skewers in the fridge until the chocolate is set, then enjoy!

Hamburger Steaks

Ground Beef (can use lean, ground chuck, etc)
1 Cup Beef Broth
All Purpose Flour
Vidalia or other sweet onion, sliced
Note: Mushrooms optional

Heat one or two tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet.

Press ground beef into doughnut shaped patties (the hole in the center will allow it to cook more
evenly and will fill in as they shrink during cooking). Dip each patty into flour on both sides and place in hot skillet over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until browned.
Scoot patties to one side and add onions to skillet. Stir and cook for a few minutes until lightly browned.

Pour in 1 cup beef broth and cover. Allow to cook until meat is no longer pink in the center, about
ten minutes.
Note: Mushrooms optional
