Thanks, Marilyn. That recipe sounds delicious. I will definitely try it as soon as I can find shrimp that is USA based. Very difficult around here. Here's another recipe for shrimp but it makes a ton! Haven't tried cutting it in half.

Shrimp and Cheese Casserole Recipe
(good for breakfast or brunch)
Serves 4.

6 slices white bread
1 pound prepared shrimp ( ready to eat) (I used much more about 2 lbs)
1/2 lb. Old English cheese ( usually comes sliced)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 t. dry mustard
Salt to taste
3 whole eggs, beaten
1 pint milk

Break bread into pieces about size of a quarter. Break cheese into bite size pieces. Arrange shrimp, bread, and cheese in several layer in greased casserole. Pour butter over mixture. Beat eggs. Add mustard & salt to eggs. Then add the milk.
Mix together & pour this over ingredients in casserole. Let stand a minimum of 3 hours, preferably overnight in refrigerator, covered. Bake 1 hour in 350 oven, covered.

(Source: unknown, been making for about 30 years) (Note! Be sure to use a large casserole because it really puffs up...about 3 qt. or 5 qt.)

Ginger, welcome to the "sky's the limit" world of bread making. Over the years I have had a number of Bread Makers and have found that they are all very much the same. My current one in use is one of the two paddle affairs which nowadays is used mostly for kneading and jam making. Don't be put off by the occasional "brick" as there is a learning curve to bread making either by hand or machine. Touch is the key. Initially watch and prod the goings on in your machines' kneading cycle, obviously once the rising process starts keep the lid closed.
Another recipe for Rye Bread, which is my current trend - this one comes from Nancy's Message Boards where there are 200 excellent recipes for Bread.

Buttermilk Rye Bread Recipe

1 1/3 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk
2 1/3 cups bread flour
1 cup rye flour
1/3 cup dry potato flakes
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon caraway seed

Place the ingredients into the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer: Select the Basic or White Bread setting, and Start.
Makes 1 - 2 pound loaf

For my birthday I received a Red Copper Flipwich. There were very few recipes included. Have any of Nancy's readers made a recipe with it that you liked or have an idea of something I might try. Flipwich is so new there is not much online. Mostly I cook for one so I feel it might be something I would use.

Hello again everyone

My neighbor gave me some patty pan squash which I never had before. I thought maybe it would be a good substitute for zucchini and came up with this recipe. The cloves and cardamom give it a little bit different taste from traditional zucchini bread.

Patty Pan Squash Bread Recipe

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp maple extract (optional but good if you have it)
1 cup peeled and grated patty pan squash (remove seeds)
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves (scant)
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup raisins

Sift together all the dry ingredients and set aside. Beat eggs until light and fluffy and then gradually beat in the sugar, until very light and fluffy. Gradually add the oil and continue beating until the mixture is well combined and light. Add the squash and both extracts.

Stir in the sifted dry ingredients, walnuts and raisins. Mix lightly until well combined. Pour into a greased 9Ē x 5Ē loaf pan. Bake at 350įF for one hour.
Makes one loaf

Iíve been away from Nancyís newsletter for quite awhile, so this question may have already been answered in the past. I donít know how to use the search option on Nancyís website.

Iím considering buying an Instant Pot, the new high-tech pressure cooker on the market.

My question is this: Does anyone in Nancy Land have one of these gadgets and if so, would you recommend getting one? I enjoy delicious food, but I donít enjoy spending lots of time in the kitchen. This applicance sounds like just the thing Iíve been looking for!

Also, what are your favorite recipes for cooking in the Instant Pot?

The last few weeks I have been battling either a cold or allergies and an ear ache. Even my cats have been sneezing. It is great to be feeling better now.

I notice that several have been asking about the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. I do not have the Instant Pot brand but do have an electric pressure cooker. Would those recipes work with the Instant Pot. I would love to share some of the ones we use at our house.

I like this recipe because it makes a small amount. I have found others that were good but made too much for me to use right away.

I love flan and make it often. It is a lot like custard but has a caramel sauce.

1 can sweetened condensed milk;
1 c Milk

3 egg yolks

1 ts vanilla extract

In a small saucepan melt sugar over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is a dark, caramel-colored liquid. Remove from heat and pour into a 4 cup metal ring molds. Quickly turn mold to coat bottom and sides with the caramel. Let cool so caramel hardens. Heat oven to 325. Put the condensed milk, milk, eggs, egg yolks and flavorings into an electric blender. Cover and blend to mix well. Pour mixture into mold; put mold in a larger pan filled with water to depth of 1/2 inch. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and remove mold from water. Cool and then refrigerate up to 2 days. Cover mold with an inverted serving platter. Hold mold and platter together and turn them over. Lift off mold. Caramel will fall as a liquid sauce over the custard.
