If you love anything "lemony", then this is the dessert for you! I made this for my women's club, and they were so impressed.

Lemon Torte

1 yellow cake mix
1 cup flaked coconut
2 tbsp. cold water
1 egg, beaten
1 cup butter
2 pkgs. (4 serving size) regular lemon pudding & pie filling mix
1-1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed, or real whipped cream

Combine cake mix, coconut, water, beaten egg and butter till well mixed with electric mixer on low. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool.

Prepare and cook the regular lemon pudding as directions state (do not use instant pudding). Chill and spread on cooled crust. Cover top with whipped topping.

NOTE: Recipe called for 1 cup shortening, or margarine, but I used butter with good results.

Lemony French Toast

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/2-1 tsp. lemon extract
1 loaf Italian Sandwich bread sliced
1/2 to 3/4 inches thick
oil for frying

Beat together eggs, milk and sugar until smooth and lemon colored. Add extract and beat it into mix. Oil a griddle or large frying pan(use canola oil because butter burns too fast) Heat the oil to about medium heat. Thoroughly soak the bread in the egg mixture. Place it into the hot pan (watch the heat), turn it down if necessary. Cook each side until browned to your liking. Serve with fruit and cream: powdered sugar, sugar or any favorite tipping.

Made this last night taking three recipes I had made in the past and this is the result. It is very tasty and a great way to use eggplant since it is in season now.

Eggplant Lasagna

1 or 2 eggplant (depending on size) – cut lengthwise in thin slices
Queso Blanco cheese
1 red or green bell pepper (chopped)
2 small carrots (chopped)
1 onion (chopped)
2 green chilies (chopped fine)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
Basil – few leaves to your own taste (chopped)
Parsley – few leaves (chopped)
Olive oil
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Sea Salt or Kosher Salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
Pasta Sauce, I used two cups

Heat oil in a large skillet; add onion and sauté until translucent.

Add garlic, carrot, bell pepper, and green chilies stir for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add cheese, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and parsley and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
Heat oil in a skillet (I used a griddle pan) and cook eggplant slices until they turn light brown on both sides.

Place some of pasta sauce in a 9x13x2” baking dish.

Put one layer of eggplant on the sauce then layer the vegetable/cheese mixture over the eggplant.
Follow this by another layer of eggplant.

Pour remaining pasta sauce over the dish and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake covered at 435° for 15 to 20 minutes. I had another dish to cook at 350° so I put the eggplant in and just cooked it longer.

Remove dish and add a little more mozzarella over it along with a little basil and parsley.
Put back in oven to melt the cheese and serve.

Hi Nancy,
I hope you and the little ones are all doing well.

I was reading your recipe for Cheese Bread in the 7/30 newsletter on Cheddar Cheese. I was wondering how you would go about making it into loaves rather than rolls. Can you help?
Thanks, Artemis in NYC

I would think you could make them into rolls but don't have a clue how long to baked them.
