Hello Nancy, I wonder if any members have a self-cleaning litter box, and if so, what brand, and does it work well?

I made this cake last night. It is a keeper. I downloaded it sometime in 2010 but did not try it until last night. I have many recipes I have collected from this newsletter.

Lemon Dump Cake Recipe

1/4 cup cooking oil
3/4 cup apricot nectar

Dump all ingredients, except eggs, in a mixing bowl. Beat mixture at medium speed, until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Pour batter into greased and floured 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 350º for about 1 hour, or until tests done. Pour glaze over top while still hot. Remove from pan when cooled.

Tapenade Recipe

Makes approx an 8 oz jarful
This is great with crisps, Slices of French Bread or Pittas.

1 garlic clove, crushed
Juice of 1 medium sized lemon
3 Tbs capers, chopped
8 Anchovy fillets, chopped
9 ozs pitted black olives, chopped
salt and pepper to taste - be careful here with salt, some olives can be very salty
4 Tbs EVOO

Add everything to a Food Processor except the oil, pulse to desired consistency that you prefer, I personally like a bit of texture, but have on occasions made the Tapenade smooth.
Add enough of the EVOO to make a paste, blend briefly, taste for seasoning and transfer to an airtight container, top with any remaining EVOO.

Note! Frankfurters were invented by a butcher in Frankfort, Germany in the 17th century.
They weren't named "hot dogs" until the 1900's when vendors at the New York Polo Grounds hawked "red hot dachshunds". A sports cartoonist couldn't spell "dachshund"
and renamed them "hot dogs".

To Athena in DE
Sure want to try those shrimp martinis. We have multiple shrimp cocktail recipes we use as main meals. Don't want to fry the shrimp, tho. Here is my substitute recipe; since you have made it, do you think I could add coconut to the coating successfully?
We have an unusual cocktail sauce featuring orange from Steven Raichlen that we think would be great on this.
Please let me know what you think about the coconut. Thanks, Marilyn in FL

In response to Shirley’s request in the August 7th newsletter, who wanted ideas for what to serve at an outdoor cookout for her Sunday School Class. Here in South Carolina, if you are serving burgers and hotdogs, we have to have chili to go on burgers & hot dogs, baked beans, coleslaw, dips to go with chips. One of our favorite S.C. desserts for cookouts is homemade Ice Cream. Also, banana pudding, pound cakes are great, and what I love serving any time of year is the Strawberry Pretzel Salad. It works great as a dessert! It’s a popular recipe and has been around for a while, but if you need it I will be happy to post my recipe to the newsletter website.

Enjoy your cookout, whatever you decide to serve! Eating anything outside makes it just a little more special in the summer time!

Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies Recipe

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
2-1/2 cups quick oats

In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine sugar, butter, and milk. Bring to a rapid boil and boil for 2 minutes and 30 seconds (SET A TIMER!) stirring continuously.* Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and the peanut butter. Stir in the oats until well blended then immediately drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper. Let cool until set. This takes a while, so hands-off for about 30 minutes! :)
If you boil these cookies for exactly 2 minutes and 30 seconds, they should turn out wonderfully, however, please note that this type of no-bake cookie is not an exact science and there are many atmospheric factors that could vary your results.
