For Sue who recently received a muffin top pan, you can use any muffin recipe or mix to prepare the muffin tops. You will need to reduce the baking time by about 1/3 for the time listed to make muffins. I think some mixes may already include baking time for muffin tops. Let us know if you need muffin recipes. There are so many great ones and it is often a way to get your family to eat more fruit.

Hi Nancy!
My answer is for Mary who wants to know what simple syrup is. It is an old bartender's secret for mixing drinks -

Simple Syrup Recipe

1 cup of white sugar
1 cup water

In a pan on stove bring mixture to a boil and cook till sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.

Best Lemonade Ever Recipe

1-3/4 cups white sugar
8 C. water
1-1/2 c. lemon juice

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

This is a very good recipe that a good friend gave me years ago and it is Polish.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls - TNT

Meat mixture
2 lb. ground beef - raw
1 onion, grated
1 carrot, grated
1/4 c. cooked rice *
1/2 tsp seasoned pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Mix together. Set aside.

1 can stewed tomatoes
2 small cans tomato paste
1 can (1 ½ c.) beef broth
1 can (1 ½ c.) chicken broth
1/4 c. red wine
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoned pepper
2 tsp. sugar

Mix together in medium large pan and heat.

Remove core from medium to large cabbage, down as deep as you can. Place in large pot with about ¼ filled with water. Cover and bring to boil. Boil 4 minutes.** Remove individual leaves from cabbage and fill each leaf with about ½ c. meat mixture; fold in sides. Starting at an unfolded edge, roll up leaf to completely enclose filling. Place seam side down in large baking pan. Continue with each cabbage leaf till all meat mixture is used. Pour sauce over the cabbage rolls. Cover and bake at 325º F for 1 ½ to 2 hours. This meat mixture makes enough for about 20 - 30 cabbage rolls, depending on amount of mixture per leaf.

*I make a 4-serving bowl of rice, using ½ c. dry rice with 3/4 c. water and then steam for 35 minutes.
**I leave the cabbage in the hot water on low while taking off the leaves to keep them pliable. posted in Nancy's Kitchen message board

Nancy, I ordered a package of Spatini from a catalog - Vermont Country Store - that carries old time items. I have used it for spaghetti a couple of times and it is very good, even better than McCormick's!

Gently combine until it’s a batter-like consistency. Drop approx. 2 tbsp. of the batter into the hot (350 degree) oil.
Fry them up one at a time, until they’re golden on both sides and cooked through…

I have a large garden this year. I need suggestions on what I can freeze and directions on how to freeze the vegetables in my garden. I want to freeze carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, green beans, peas and bell peppers. I would like to freeze them in packages in small amounts (enough for two people.)

I have recently become interested in carrots because of their health benefits. I did not know how many varieties there are ( Rainbow, Cosmic Color, Harlequin) or that it is best to
cook them unpeeled and whole! I will try Spiced Braised Carrots with Olives and Mint, Roasted Spice Carrots and Carmalized Carrot Risotto; however, I would like to know
if anyone has tried and true HEALTHY recipes for carrots....no flour, just a little butter, very, very little sugar at the most, etc.

Thanks! Athena in DE

I usually print off there and then any Recipes that I am going to use. I didn't print off the recent Rye Bread with beer recipe (probably around 9th June) simply because I was waiting for a reply to the weight of yeast from Anna in Sweden, also I was waiting for the flour I had ordered. I may have dreamed it but in days of yore I thought I could simply call up newsletter archives, can someone repeat the recipe for me please?

Royalty Hawaiian Bread Recipe
(this bread makes superb cheese & ham sandwiches)
makes 3 loaves or 24 large rolls

6-7 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups pineapple juice
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 (1/4 ounce) envelopes yeast
1/2 cup butter (one stick) melted

Beat the eggs. Add the pineapple juice, sugar, salt, ginger, vanilla, and butter.

Place 3 cups of flour in a large bowl. Stir in the egg mixture until well-combined. Sprinkle in the yeast, one packet at a time, and mix. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour and mix in. If dough is sticky and difficult to handle, add more flour. Dough should be slightly tacky, but not wet. Knead the dough for 5 minutes until it forms a smooth ball. Place dough in a greased bowl and set aside to rise until doubled in size (about 1 1/2 hours).

Punch dough down and either divide into three equal parts for bread loaves or 24 balls for dinner rolls. Place in greased loaf pans or shape into rolls.

Cover and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in size. The secret to light and airy rolls is making sure they've risen enough.... patience is a virtue, not too much of a problem if you live in a warm climate.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or golden brown, I like to brush with melted butter when I remove from the oven, gives a nice shiny glaze.

Marinara Sauce Recipes
For Anita in Camarillo

Monterey Marinara Sauce Recipe

1 T. olive oil
1 small onion, minced
5 rounded tsp. minced garlic
3 - 4 stems snipped parsley
9 - 12 basil leaves, torn
28 oz. crushed tomatoes (Contadina brand preferred)
1 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. dried red pepper flakes
4 grinds EACH black pepper & sea salt

In a large pot saute' onion & garlic till lightly brown; add herbs & toss, then stir in rest of ingredients in order given; simmer 20 minutes. Serves 2 - 3 for a main dish or makes 4 - 5 sides. Terrific on most anything & exceptional on sausage tortellini.
thanks, John Pisto & family, Monterey, CA.

Good idea to grate some fresh cheese to top this.


Picchi Pacchu Marinara Sauce Recipe

28 oz. can peeled roma tomatoes & juices
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Pinch dried red pepper flakes
4 - 5 grinds black pepper
1 1/2 T. olive oil
7 - 8 buds garlic, slivered (do not substitute minced or whole for this, it changes the entire dish)
8 - 9 leaves basil, torn
8 oz. thin or regular speghetti, tagliarini, linguini, etc.

Fresh grated parmesan cheese to top whatever dish you choose

Pulse whole tomatoes & their juice in blender 4 pulses on GRIND. MIx in saucepan with sugar, salt, &

both peppers; bring to a low boil on Medium High, then reduce to a simmer.

Heat oil in a small skillet on Medium High; add garlic & stir 1 minute....do NOT allow to brown; stir this

into sauce; stir in basil too. Sauce will hold now off heat for an hour or so without being chilled.

Grate cheese; cover & chill it. Good with meatballs added; cook them in sauce before finishing it with
garlic & basil, then simmer all before serving. Cloned from Carrabas.

These are my two favorites. I'm sure there are quicker ones, but John's especially goes together fast & I know both are delicious.
