Oven Fried Yellow Squash
Makes 2 servings

2 small yellow crookneck squash
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
1 tablespoon soft margarine
pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel squash and cut in halves (lengthwise). Spread margarine on top of halves of squash. Place in lightly greased casserole dish. Sprinkle crushed potato chips on top of squash. Bake 15 minutes or until done.

Note: I use the individual serving bags of potato chips and crush them in the bag. It may not be quite 1/2 cup but it is enough for me. I have also used the sour cream potato chips as well for something different.

Sauce Pan Yellow Squash
Makes 2 servings

2 yellow crockneck squash
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup water

Peel squash, removed ends, and slice (1 inch) Add squash, water, onion, and salt and pepper to sauce pan. Bring to boil. Cook about 10 minutes (or less if you like the squash crispy done.) Drain extra liquid off squash. Add butter and let melt.

Note: As a variation I like to add a bit of shredded mild cheddar cheese to squash with the butter (or margarine.) For a little extra crunchy texture I sometimes sprinkle a little fried onions (that come in a can.) on top.

Fried Yellow Squash
Makes 2 servings

2 small yellow crookneck squash
1/8 cup flour
1/8 cup cornmeal
oil for frying
salt and pepper to taste

Peel squash, remove ends, and slice into 3/4 inch slices. Place flour and cornmeal into a covered container. Mix flour and cornmeal well. Put squash in container and coat slices on both sides. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fry in skillet with heated oil. Brown each slice on both sides and put on plate that has several layers of paper towels. It may take one or two skillets full to finish. Pat top of squash with paper towel(s) to get rid of excess oil.

This is so good. I used to fry squash all in one pan at one time but found that frying each piece separately makes it tastes so much better. It make take a bit longer but the flavor makes it worth it. I can easily eat two squash and eat it all by myself. When I do this, it is my whole meal and I don't eat anything else with it except sliced tomatoes.

I’m looking for a recipe that is a Lemon Cake with Lemon filling and Lemon frosting. I suppose the filling could be a cream cheese type or lemon curd, either one. Do any of you have such a goodie?
I’d appreciate it.
Thanks, Anita in Camarillo

Might have to wait for fall (when the oven can be turned on) but sure sounds good.

Yummy Strawberry Cake

Strawberry cake mix, baked according to box directions.
Sweetened strawberries with juice (1 container fresh strawberries, sugared down very well or 1 container sweetened frozen strawberries.)
8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 lb. powdered sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip
Drain the berries VERY well after they have made their juice.

When the cake comes out of the oven, poke holes in it and pour the juice from your strawberries over it. Let it cool completely before icing.
Icing: Mix cream cheese with powered sugar. Fold in about half an 8 oz. tub of cool whip and the strawberries.

Make sure you keep it in the icebox. This is one of those that gets better the second day!

For Emily wanting
sweet rice recipes, so she can make it for her husband, as it was a favorite dish during his childhood, there are so many different versions of this dish. If there is any relative of your husband, who can supply the recipe, I would ask them. If what he had was made with butter and whole milk or cream, you need to know that, so you don't use skim milk and margarine. You also need to know if it had eggs in it. Here is one version of the dish that is popular. also, some refer to rice pudding as sweet rice, and we had relatives that served cooked rice with brown sugar and butter on top of it, who referred to it as sweet rice. Some people put raisins in their sweet rice, but purists would likely cringe at that idea. Good Luck in replicating the dish for your husband and keep us updated.

Diana go to home page, at top of page of the newsletter and it will give you all kinds of recipes for two. I use it a lot when I am in Fl. It has great recipes and I think your Mom would like it. I also have a recipes for one or two to make a Éclair cake I didn't want to make a big Éclair cake and the only thing I had was a vanilla and a chocolate individual cups. I used the graham cracker on the bottom and put the chocolate pudding on that and more graham cracker on top of the chocolate then the vanilla on top another graham cracker on that and cool whip on top. My grandson came in and ate half and ask that I make more. In case of need you can get the pudding in sugar free. As always I have to let Nancy know she is the best .I think I found her when she first started and this the first thing I do to make my day

Have a lot of green peppers in my garden this year, so looking for things to use them for. Would like to have a good, easy recipe for stuffed peppers.
Thanks and stay cool.
Marilyn in Ohio

This is for Heather Australia, who in the 7/10 newsletter, requested lemonade concentrate substitutions since this product is not readily available in Australia. I have never used this recipe, but thought I would share it and you could decide if you want to try it. You can use more or less sugar, depending on your taste. I hope this helps. If you would like lemon chicken recipes that use fresh lemons instead of the concentrate, let us know. I am confident that the readers have many recipes they can share.
Robbie IN

Lemonade Concentrate

In a saucepan, stir together 1½ cups of white sugar (375 mL) and 1 cup (250 mL) of water. Heat until the mixture boils and the sugar is dissolved. Let cool.

Meanwhile, juice 8 medium-sized lemons until you get 1½ cups (375 mL) of juice. You may need to strain your juice if you have pits or too much pulp. Once the sugar syrup has cooled a bit, add the juice, stir, and then put in a plastic container with a lid in the freezer. This is about 3 cups (750 mL) worth of concentrate. Freeze solid. Can be stored for up to 6 months. To use for lemonade, combine equal parts Lemonade concentrate with cold water. Can add fresh mint, raspberries, cherries or other fruit for garnish.

These are great any time, but especially in summer with the garden fresh tomatoes. I have also used crab or lobster meat in place of the bacon.

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

a vegetarian version of this recipe, try substituting cashews or diced avocado for the

2 pints cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (NOT packaged)
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
16-oz. pkg. bacon, crisply cooked, drained, and crumbled

Cut the top off each cherry tomato, and using a melon baller or a sharp knife, carefully scoop out the seeds and pulp. Place each tomato upside down on paper towel to drain.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl. Stuff each cherry tomato with the bacon mixture. Chill in fridge for at least 2 hours to blend flavors.

To serve line the serving tray with parsley to keep the little tomatoes from rolling around. Serves 8

They have hot sauces like you can't believe and all kinds of snack foods. It is just about 2 miles from me and I can get into serious trouble every time I go here which is often. They grow their own peppers and process the sauces there.
