Saturday, August 24, 2013. I am not sending a recipe, but this past Tuesday, August 20 was the last day I received your column. I hope every thing is O.K. with you, maybe computer problems. I really enjoy your column. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Another Grandmother

There has been no newsletter for several days. The internet cable was cut in my alley. It took several days for Suddenlink to repair it. I have been without internet. I did not know that I was so dependent on the internet.

Nanette, Indiana was looking for a previously posted Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe.
This one was posted Aug 15, 2011 by Judy (in Alaska)
Her recipes are always keepers.

This cake recipe was on the Duncan Hines Dark Dutch Fudge Cake Mix box years ago, but I don't think they make that flavor anymore? I just use any chocolate flavor, even one with the pudding added to the mix. This is very moist and so good!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

1 package chocolate cake mix
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
1-1/4 cups water
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 cup shredded unpeeled zucchini

Beat all ingredients, except for zucchini, together for 2 minutes on medium speed with electric mixer. Fold in zucchini. Turn batter into well greased and floured 10" tube, or bundt pan. Bake at 350º for 50 to 60 minutes, until tests done. Remove from pan in about 20 minutes.
Cool and frost.

2 package (3 ounce each) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon milk
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla together well in medium bowl. Add powdered sugar and milk and mix until creamy and smooth. Add more powdered sugar to thicken, or milk to thin, as needed. Spread on cooled cake and sprinkle nuts over top. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Serves 12 to 16 people.

Hi, here is another recipe I made last week. I made this for a couple older fellows (75) both keep telling me how their mothers used to make rhubarb dessert. They both thought this was delicious. and looked good too.

Upside Down Rhubarb Cake

5 cups 1/2 inch diced rhubarb I use more if I have it.
1 cup sugar
1 3 ounce Raspberry Jell-O
4 cups Miniature marshmallows (optional)
1 white or yellow cake mix, Make cake fallowing pkg. directions

Turn on oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 X 13 inch pan with Crisco.

Wash and dice rhubarb, peel if needed. measure out 5 to 8 cups of Rhubarb put on bottom of greased cake pan. sprinkle with 1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar. sprinkle with raspberry Jell-O. try to get sugar and Jell-O over distributed evenly over all the rhubarb. Now sprinkle Jell-O with marshmallows. Pour prepared cake mix over marshmallows. bake in oven 40 t0 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. If using marshmallows they will come to top. I serve this cake with cool whip on top. But really not needed.

Grilled New Potato Packet

Get it all done on the grill with this foil-packet technique. New potatoes are infused with tangy dressing and savory Parmesan for a no-mess, delectable side dish.

1/2 pound each red and white new potatoes (about 4 each)
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoon oil

Topping for the baked potato's:

3 Tbsp. Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing
2 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Heat grill to medium heat.
Place potatoes on center of large sheet of heavy-duty foil; drizzle with water and oil. Fold foil to make packet. Grill 18 to 20 min. or until potatoes are tender. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packet.


Special Extra
Mince 2 cloves garlic; sprinkle over potatoes along with 1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper before folding foil to make packet and grilling as directed.

Prepare using Zesty Italian Dressing.

If you don't have heavy-duty foil, you can use a double layer of regular foil instead.
For a crispier skin, let the potato's soak in water for 30 minutes to an hour to remove the starch.

Nancy Is there an easy way to pull up
gluten free recipes? I just found out a niece needs them. She has been diagnosed as allergic to most food in most food groups and now a doctor has said that she needs the gluten free. She is the mother of 2 very active boys and stays busy after work with them in baseball and football so any recipes would have to be fairly easy with a minimum number of ingredients. Thanks for any help your readers can give me.
Bev from Ga.

There is no section in the site for gluten free recipes. It is one section I have not added. There are some recipes through the years our readers have submitted but there is no easy way to search for them.

Nancy I need a good strawberry cobbler made in 9/13 pan I know one of you ladies will have one. thank you

This is for Sarah FL, who requested French onion soup recipes in the 8/19 newsletter. The type of onions you use will greatly impact the taste of the soup. Use sweet onions for the very best results.

This is in answer to question by Mary Beth in the August 20 Newsletter. I used the small (or regular size) pistachio instant pudding in the Pistachio Cookie recipe. If you make them, I hope you like them. I made two batches for a cookie tray for my nephew's wedding this coming Saturday.

Nancy appreciate all of your hard work and dedication for the TNT recipes. Like the new look and appreciate the search box feature.
Love Judy’s(Alaska) recipes.

I would like to make Judy’s Peanut Cookies recipe from the August 20th newsletter.
I have two questions – Is the amount of baking soda 1/2 teaspoon instead of 12?
Shortening – Is this the liquid or solid Crisco?
Thanks Rosemary (WV)
