For Marilyn in Ohio:

You were looking for Sugar Free Chocolate Chips. For years I have been using CAROB chips. I usually can get them in the Bulk Food Stores, although the grocery stores have now started stocking them. They are a chocolate substitute with no sugar. They have the same great taste as chocolate. I am sure that if you check your bulk food store, you will find them. Although I am writing from Canada - they are not an unusual item and should be available. Hope this helps.

In the 11/29/09 newsletter Marilyn OH wanted suggestions on where to buy sugar free chocolate chips. If you can’t find them in any of your local stores, King Arthur sells them. You can order on line at

Hi, I can finally help with a request. This is for Margo in Boston who was looking for a substitute for Royal Milk Crackers. I can tell you that Market Basket caries their own brand New England Lunch Milk Crackers as I have used them the past few years. They are just like the Royal ones not made anymore, only they are a bit thinner- the taste great.

A huge thank you to so many of you who researched and made such an effort to find a substitute for the Milk Lunch Crackers I used for my MIL's stuffing. Dawn in NH and Betty in TN gave me just the solution, I think. When I went to the web site they gave me the description mentioned that it was used in a Lithuanian stuffing recipe. My MIL was Lithuanian! Here is the recipe she gave me. It included some bread as well as crackers and minced Chicken livers as well. Lets call it Lithuanian Stuffing. Thank you .

Lithuanian Stuffing

In large bowl mix:
1/2 of day old white bread
1/2 crushed Milk Crackers
Add dry sage, salt and pepper
Add 2 eggs mixed with milk

Finely chop Cooked chicken livers( about 6), celery and onion. Melt butter in fry pan over medium heat. Add celery and onions and cook a few minutes to soften. Add the stuffing mixed with the minced chicken livers and cook till it comes to a nice mounded mixture. Add to turkey cavity which has been rinsed, salted and had a few butter cubes thrown in as well. Cook turkey as usual.

There are no exact measurement as the amount of stuffing depended on the size of the chicken or turkey or people she was feeding. The bread and crackers were pretty much 1/2 and 1/2.

Hi everyone. This is for Marilyn in Ohio. I buy my sugar free chocolate chips at Walmart Super Center. They are with all the other chips in the baking aisle. Just bought 3 bags for baking this holiday season. Love to make the 3 chocolate Brownies. For those who don't have the recipe:

3 Chocolate Brownies

1 box cake mix with half the sugar ( Pillsbury)
1 reg. box sugar free instant chocolate pudding
1 bag sugar free chocolate chips

Make pudding mix as directed on the box using 2 cups milk. I use skim milk.
Mix in dry cake mix. Batter will be thick. Spread into jelly roll pan that has been sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over the batter. Press in gently.
Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool. Cut into squares.

Wishing sunshine to all, especially Nancy.

When fresh corn is not in season, I buy creamed corn frozen in tubes. I usually get white but you can also get yellow creamed corn. I partially thaw 2 tubes of white creamed corn and add 1/3-1/2 block of diced cream cheese to the corn. I then add a can of drained white corn kernels or frozen corn to the creamed corn. Heat it through until the cream cheese is melted and mixed with the corn. It is very good and an exceptional substitute for the wonderful fresh corn we have in the summer.

Margo/Boston has been asking about crackers to be used in stuffing. I remember my mother more than 50 years ago using hard crackers, and a meat grinder, to make her stuffing. Vermont Country store sells "Common Crackers" that look similar to what she used.

How do you get into the WebTV user group? I can't do a lot of things with WebTV that I used to do. I  cannot print Nancy's recipes and can not get Q V C.

Thank you Pauline Pa.

In the Nov. 28 newsletter Marvis in Texas asked about a recipe for graham crackers and this is one that I have used over and over. Don't know if this is what she wants or not, but..... maybe. These are very good.

Hi Nancy,

This recipe is for Doris in Ohio, who asked in the November 29th newsletter for a recipe for salted pecans. I have included one for salted and roasted pecans (and you can use walnuts or almonds). It is very easy and very good. They make great gifts. This evening after work, I will also send a couple of other recipes that I make for gifts for candied pecans, and savory pecans. I do have others, if anyone would like me to submit them. Enjoy! AtlantPat

To Nell in Va--your graham cracker recipe sounds delicious. Is this the recipe that also you can put 12oz. of choc chips over, and spread as it softens?

Also, at Dollar Tree, I bought the Pirouline wafers that someone had a recipe for. Can someone please, point me to that recipe, now that I have wafers, already bought?? Thanks, Sue

Sandi, you are very welcome for the kolachi recipe! As I said, I didn't get an exact recipe, but my friend told me what was in them and how they are put together!
