Well, for the life of me, I cannot seem to find "Nana's Banana Split Cake Recipe. I have looked over June 2 recipes several times, but cannot seem to locate. The lady that wrote in about whether to drain the pineapple or not said it was on the June 2 recipes email, but I just have not seen it. Will you please give me the directions to find it, as I would love to make that for my family when you get some free time.

Thanks for all you do - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the kitties stories - my two are about as dumb as stones, but I love them anyway!

I accidently erased the June 2 recipe newsletter page. I have not yet recontructed it. I plan to do it sometime tomorrow. The recipe you are looking for is
Nana's Banana Split Cake Recipe
and the answer is yes, you do drain the pineapple.

Thank you, Melody, for the peanut plank recipe! I just knew it was a simple one, and I'm excited to try the one you sent in. I looked online for it several times, but wasn't able to find it. Thank you again!

A few years ago I was given this recipe. It is one of our family favorites. Hope you like it as much as we do. This is the first time I have submitted a recipe and I have been reading this wonderful newsletter since 1996. I never had the courage to submit a recipe before. I thought you always had enough recipes and my recipe wouldn't really count. I now know that everyone needs to share their best recipes. Thank you for having the newsletter.

Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle a third over apples. Repeat layers of pastry, apples and cinnamon-sugar twice. Roll out remaining dough to fit top of dish and place on top. Using a sharp knife, cut 2 inch slits through all layers at once.

For syrup bring water and sugar to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over top crust. Bake at 400 F. for 35-40 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream if desired. Garnish with mint if desired.

I have a question. My husband says I ask the dumbest questions but I want to know the answer. When I buy Reynold's Wrap foil it is hard to pull out. It looks like it has been in a war and is all wrinkled up. How can you pull out a sheet of foil and it comes out evenly. Is there a trick to it staying in the container.

Here is another recipe that is easy to fix.

Charley's Fried Pickles Recipe

1 jar dill pickles (sliced long for sandwiches, or whole so you can cut a thicker slice)
1 package dry pancake mix
oil for deep frying

In a tall skillet, heat one-inch of oil to 350-375 degrees. You can use the juice from the pickle jar to moisten the pickle slices, roll them in the dry mix and drop them in the hot oil. Brown the pickles lightly, remove and let stand on a folded paper towel to blot up any access oil.
