For a change of pace, we had this last evening with new potatoes & green beans, stuffed mushrooms, & applesauce. Easy & good.

Hot Sauce Glazed Ham Steak Recipe

2 T. packed brown sugar
1 T. ketchup
1/4 tsp. Original Tobasco or other favorite hot sauce
1 ham slice, cut into large serving pieces

Put ham on a foil-covered baking sheet in one layer. Mix all else & spread all over ham. Bake at 350į for 25 minutes. Stuffed mushrooms baked along with this for a good side dish.

The mushroom stuffing recipe I used was flavored cream cheese with bacon. It was tasty, but now I think I'd like to try a very well-seasoned bread or cracker type stuffing with this ham.

Can anybody send in a TNT stuffed 'shroom recipe like that? We'd really appreciate it.

I too have the same diagnosis as your husband. The most helpful website I have found, recommended, used, is Davita.com which provides nutrition advice, keeping a chart of patientís blood work relating to kidney function, recipes. Potassium is very hard to regulate but doable. You will find it fluctuates from one blood test to next. When first starting on a strict diet to control potassium, low salt, keep a record of the menus and number of grams per serving. Soon you will have the idea of how many you are getting. Become familiar with the low potassium fruits and veggies. Avoid the high potassium foods as much as possible. Diet is extremely important for kidney patients. I recommend a book, KIDNEY HEALTH GOURMET DIET GUIDE AND COOKBOOK.

This can be served as a main dish or as appetizers. It is great with soup or served on its own with salad.

Delicious Crab Bread Recipe

1 loaf French bread
1/2 cup butter, soft- I use 1/3
1 c. mayonnaise or sour cream
2 c. grated Cheddar cheese
Small bunch green onions, chopped
1/4 c. parsley, chopped
As much garlic as you like, but never less than 2 lg. cloves
1 can crab meat (6 oz.), washed, drained and patted dry

Cut the bread lengthwise and spread the butter evenly on both halves. Mix the mayonnaise, cheese, onions, parsley, and garlic and crab together, then spread them evenly over the butter. Cover with foil, folded high above the surface of the bread so as not to touch the mixture.
Bake at 375 for half an hour. Take off the foil and put the bread back in the oven for another 10 - 15 minutes or until nicely brown.

Nancy, both of my cats were feral kittens, and now so domesticated that like your babies are quite ready to eat this, turn up a little pink nose at that. We're only human so just have to try to do our best to please them {!}

For Marsha who asked about cooking raisins, when I've had recipes like this I do use water but add a little vanilla. Thinking orange juice might be good too.
Best regards, Barbara J Nosek
