My hubs bought a large bag of frozen pitted cherries. I have already made frog eye Salad with 2c. measured. They are really good; couldn’t find canned cherries.

My query is whether anyone out there in nancy-land has any other wonderful Salad recipes using cherries. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

I've had success removing gunk from the bottom of a stainless steel pan with oven cleaner. I applied the stuff to the pan and put it in the oven for the period time on the label. Most of it came right off. Make sure the label on the product being used says it can be used on stainless steel.

I'm curious about which air fryer is the best for a family? Any input will be helpful.

I have switched from meat to turkey, chicken and fish. Turkey sometimes is quite dry especially the white ground turkey so I am always looking for recipes to add some spice and taste. Sunday I tried a very flavorful recipe for Turkey Sloppy Joes.

Quick and Easy Turkey Sloppy Joes

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 large red onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 can (8 9z) tomato sauce
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. chili powder
1/4 t. salt
8 hamburger buns, split

In large skillet, cook turkey, onion & pepper over medium heat 6-8 min. or until turkey is no longer pink & vegetables are tender, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Stir in tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered 10 min. to allow flavors to blend, stirring occasionally. Serve in buns. ( 251 cal. )
8 servings.

For Janie.

Watermelon Nectarine Salad Recipe

1 heaping c. diced watermelon
1 nectarine, diced
1/4 c. minced red onion
1/4 large jalapeno`, minced (about 1 rounded T.)
Juice of 1/2 lime (can be lemon)
4 - 5 leaves basil, snipped*

Mix all together & chill at least 2 hours.

*If making a southern country dish, parsley is good in place of basil; if making a Tex-Mex dish, culantro is a good change. Serves 2 or 3; easy to multiply.
Wonderful when it's really hot with a quick broiled fish & tiny potatoes cooked in broth.
