Have you been to our message board lately. It has over 30,000 recipes from our recipe members.? Many have asked me about Chris in NM. She is on the board almost daily and has been for years. Chris and others have kept the board going for many years.

If you are already a member to the message board and can't log into your account just start a new one. Would love to see the board going strong again. You must be a member to post recipes. There is one place after you sign up it asks you to complete another registration.  Just skip it and click on finsh registration. 

It would be fun love to see each of our NancyLanders submit several of their best recipes. After your recipes are posted let your friends know where they can find them. Maybe your friends have a some of their best recipes to post as well. The recipes may not show up immediately because Chris and her team have to approve the recipe. This is because we have some posts that are inappropriate to a recipe message board.

Shaker and Amish Recipes

Amish Corn Fritters

4 lg. ears corn
2 eggs, separated
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 tbsp. sugar
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Unsalted butter

Cut the kernels from two ears by standing each ear upright on a plate, carefully slice beneath the rows in a steady downward motion. With the back of the knife, scrape the cobs to extract the juice. Grate the kernels from the remaining 2 ears, cutting off the kernels at just half their depth and scraping off pulp on the cob. Put all the corn kernels, pulp and juice into a bowl. The mixture will resemble scrambled eggs. Beat the egg yolks in a large bowl until light. Beat in the flour, sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the corn. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff. Fold them into the corn mixture. Heat a heavy skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease it lightly with butter. Drop the batter by small spoonfuls onto the skillet and cook until golden. About 30 seconds each side. Transfer the cooked fritters to a lightly buttered serving platter and keep them warm.

garlic herb seasoning - 2 shakes
3 green onions, diced
1/4 lb. cooked bacon, diced

I made this Sunday morning for brunch and we really liked this! It can be doubled for company and is so easy to make! You could even add hash brown potatoes in place of the flour. Diced bell peppers would also be a great addition!

Grilled Vegetables

1 medium eggplant
1 onion
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
4 carrots
1 pint cherry tomatoes

Peel eggplant and cut into cubes. Salt and place into strainer and drain. This removes some of the bitterness you can have with eggplant. Peel and slice onions. Cut zucchini and yellow squash on the diagonal in slices.

Peel carrots, cut into slices on the diagonal. Blanch 4 minutes in boiling water. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. I use a stovetop grill for this dish. It is easier to do each vegetable separately and then combine.

Coat vegetable with a very light coating of vegetable oil. A vegetable spray will work. Cook each vegetable until done. They will only take a few minutes each. Salt and pepper to taste as you are cooking. You can also sprinkle fresh herbs on the vegetables before cooking.

Gently toss vegetables together. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Hi Nancy, Re: to 5-11-13 N/L on uses for baking soda. Thank you SO
Much for this article.

I have used soda in laundry and also use it in my dishwasher cup for first cycle then regular
dishwasher soap in the second cup. Dishes are sparkling plus the soda helps keep the dishwasher clean.

I failed to include the person that submitted the baking soda information. Bill, Alb sent it in and the information seemed very useful. Thank you Bill for the information.

Someone sent in a Sangria recipe so I thought I would share my favorite which I serve with Paella. The recipes are from an old “Playboy” magazine in the 70’s.


1 fifth light dry red wine (rioja, beaujoulais)
1 whole orange
1 ripe Elberta peach, peeled & sliced
6 slices lemon
1 1/2 oz. cognac
1 oz. triple sec
1 oz. maraschino
1 T or more sugar to taste
6 oz. iced club soda

Cut entire peel of orange in a single strip, beginning at stem end and continuing until spiral reaches bottom of fruit. White part should be cut along with outer peel, so that orange fruit is exposed. Leave peel attached to orange bottom, so that fruit may be suspended in pitcher. Pour wine into glass pitcher. Add peach, lemon, cognac, triple sec, maraschino & sugar.
Stir to dissolve sugar. Carefully place orange in pitcher, fastening top end of peel over rim. Let mixture marinate at room temp. at least 1 hr. Add soda & 1 tray of ice cubes to pitcher. Stir. ( I use a Sangria pitcher but any glass pitcher will work.)

Cheddar Pan Biscuits

1/3 cup butter
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded + more for top
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the butter in an 8 inch square baking pan and set it into the oven to melt. (3 to 5 minutes) Remove from the oven and set aside.

Meanwhile whisk together the flour, cheese, baking powder, sugar, basil leaves and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk and stir it in just until the mixture is moistened evenly. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for a minute until smooth. (about 6 or 7 turns)

Pat or roll the dough out to a 12 by 6 inch rectangle. Cut into 12 1-inch wide strips. Dip the strips into the melted butter in the pan, one at a time and then fold each strip in half. Place the folded strips in 2 rows in the same pan as you have melted the butter in. Sprinkle the 1 ounce of shredded cheese evenly over top.

Bake for 23 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm with cold butter for spreading and enjoy!
Makes 12 biscuits.
