Potato Salad Recipe additional information
I did say to boil the potatoes with the skins on. What I failed to say is after they are cooked and cool enough to handle I then pealed them. Sorry for the confusion. Maybe this old lady (I just turned 80) will get it right.

I would love to know, does anyone out there have a instant pot, and want to share recipes?


Judy in Montana, I too have many of your recipes in my file and they are used not only by me, but my family and friends. Yourself, Robbie and many more have been prolific givers to NK for many, many years and your recipes have been well used. I am so sorry to hear of your fading eyesight. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with Glaucoma in my right eye and on nightly drops for both eyes hoping to stave off it occuring in my left one - it's scary beyond belief. Living where we live I need my car - but have been warned that if this spreads to my other eye they will have to inform DVLA! I dread the twice yearly checks. Not surprised about your Scottish heritage, them celtic kilted men seem to have got everywhere. All the best!

I would like a recipe for German Potato Salad. It is the kind that is served hot.

How do you cook corn on the grill. Do you leave on the husks or do you take them off?

As apple harvesting season is approaching a wee reminder of this mix you can have to hand.
You only need four ingredients to make apple pie spice at home.

Sylvia's Homemade Apple Spice Pie Recipe

2 teaspoons nutmeg
3 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon allspice

All you need to do is add all the spices to a suitable container (I use a smallish jar with a good fitting lid), and shake.
Not only good for Apple pies and any other recipes that call for Apple Pie Spice - try it on baking apples (dotted with butter and wrapped in foil for baking). Pears, baked bananas, French toast, bagels (buttered and ready for toasting), fruit pasries - it's a nice welcome warming spice.

Hi Nancy, all Landers, and precious kitties,

I found this recipe recently online for "Southern Sweet Iced Tea". I don't know how authentic it is, but we like it very much. It is not bitter and we find the strength to our liking. The baking soda in it is used to 1) cut the bitterness and 2) to avoid the tea getting cloudy. What the taste reminds me of, if my memory serves me, is the tea at a chain that was in my area years ago called "Po Folks". Also, we recently ate at TGIF and they have both Raspberry Tea and Strawberry Tea on their menu. Each were the best of that type of flavored tea I've tasted, so if anyone has a copycat, would love you to post it.

Southern Sweet Iced Tea Recipe

8 cups water
2 family sized black tea bags (such as Luzianne) (This is what I used.)
1/2 cup sugar (I used 1/4 cup "Zing", and Splenda would probably work fine as well.)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Remove from heat, add tea bags and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, discard. Stir in sugar and baking soda until dissolved. Chill at least 2 hours.

Does anyone have any recipes for Butternut Squash? I have no idea what to do with them! Please help me! I really need tried and true recipes!
Thanks, Shelia in Bama

When I was growing up my mother made a pork and bean salad. I don't remember what it had in it other than a can of pork and beans, chopped green pepper and chopped sweet pickles. Can someone help me with a recipe for this.
Thank you, Sharon

Information for Judy in Montana
Judy Montana I am not sure where you live in Montana, or if you are aware of all the resources that are available to you. Do not give up on cooking, baking and all the things you enjoy because you are losing your vision. I have always had low vision and 20 years ago I lost what little sight that remained. I still enjoy life immensely. There are so many resources, gadgets, aids, adaptive software and just helpful hints available these days. If you have not already been referred to your local state agency, I hope you call them today. here is some very brief information for you. Their web site has extensive information but please call them. You do not need to want to seek employment; part of their mission is to keep people independent in their own home.

I included this in the newsletter because there may be others that would appreciate the information.
I have a brother and a sister-in-law that are both blind. They have lived very full lives and continue to do so after they have retired.


Here is a twist on traditional stuffed peppers. I have used left over corn bread instead of the stuffing mix and just added a little salsa for flavoring.
Robbie IN

Robbie's Southwestern Stuffed Peppers Recipe

6 large green, red or yellow bell peppers
1/2 pound Italian sausage or chorizo, casing removed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 package (8 ounces) Pepperidge Farm cornbread stuffing
2 cups shredded Jalapeno Monterey Jack cheese or cheese of your choice
1 can Chicken Broth

Slice tops off the 6 peppers core and discard seeds.
In a large saucepan, place peppers in enough boiling salted water to cover.

Cover and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

Drain peppers upside down on paper towels.

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage and garlic, stirring to break up the meat. Drain grease.
In a large bowl, combine sausage, stuffing, cheese and 3/4 cup of the broth. Combine well. Fill each pepper with stuffing mixture.

In large saucepan, combine the remaining broth and chopped red pepper from the tops you cut off .
Arrange stuffed peppers in broth. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low.

Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until peppers are just tender.

In covered blender container, carefully blend red pepper broth mixture until smooth.

Serve with stuffed peppers, if desired.

Thank you Robbie for the cooking and temp chart for grilling meats. My steaks look like they have been cremated. What am I doing wrong. What should the coals look like when you put on the steak? How do you keep the fire down so the steaks aren't burned up by fire?

On Wed 7/12/2017 one of the newsletter members requested

Peggy's Dressing for fresh fruit salad recipe
There several mixtures I have used:

1. Honey with a few drops of vanilla added and thinned with lime juice to desired consistency. I have used this on cut up watermelon and cantaloupe mixed together (scoop out the shell from half the watermelon and use that as your serving dish).

2. Softened cream cheese with a few drops of vanilla thinned with fruit juice such as pineapple juice or maraschino cherry juice mixed to desired consistency

3. Some maraschino cherry juice (not too much) mixed in the fruit, if you add pineapple tidbits include some of the pineapple juice as well, sprinkle with granulated sugar, let it set and sugar will dissolve in the juice. Stir before serving.
This last one is the one my Mother used for our Christmas fruit salad every year so my memory thinks that's the way it's supposed to be!
