Watergate Salad
Oh my this is one of the oldest recipes that I have. It came from my Mom who passed away a couple years ago at the ripe age of 99. Here goes Jana

1 carton (9 oz) whipped topping
1 box instant pistachio pudding (I am thinking that I had to use sugar free as that is all I could find now)
1 can (1 lb) crushed pineapple and juice ( they probably have cut the size down like almost everything now)
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup nuts

Fold dry pudding mix into whipped topping. Add pineapple and juice, marshmallows & nuts. Refrigerate.
Enjoy! Janis in Texas

This recipe or one very similar was sent in by Robbie IN, Judy (in Alaska). Abby in Atlanta, and Denise

Hi Nancy and Everyone,
I am looking for a recipe that I have made several times from this newsletter, and now I can't find it. It was a recipe for a
Jalapeno Corn Dip and was submitted by Susanah (I'm not sure of the spelling) from Louisiana. Does anyone have this recipe or know where I can locate it?

Thank you in advance.
Vickie, SE TX

I was me, Marilyn in Ohio that requested the stuffed Pepper recipes, as well as the Cheeseburger soup. Thanks for all of the recipes. Will try the stuffed pepper recipes now as we have a lot in our garden.

The recipe I am looking for is old one. It is
buttermilk icing, which is not a heavy icing, but one that seeps in to the cake. Can someone help me? I do hope so, and thanks.

This is for Anita in Camarillo, and is the most delicious lemon cake I've ever eaten. It is from the 29th Pillsbury Bake Off, and I would make it every year for my uncle's birthday, as he loved it.

In small bowl, beat 3 egg yolks well with rotary beater or portable electric mixer. Add the 2 cups batter and lemon juice and mix well. Layer spoonfuls of batter alternately in two greased and floured 8 or 9 inch round layer pans I have also used a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan and bake for 20 minutes) beginning and ending with white batter. Swirl lightly to marble. Bake at 350° 20 to 30 minutes for 9 inch pans and 25 to 35 minutes for 8 inch pans, until toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes and remove from pans. Cool completely. Fill and frost cake when cold, using 1 cup for filling.

Tartar Sauce
Nancy, I don't have the original recipe for Cracker Barrel Tartar sauce, but I did a search on the net. Here is two that I found. When reading about them, one person said Red Lobster's version was similar to Cracker Barrels. Also saw where it said it was "sweeter" than most tartar sauce. The second recipe (Red Lobster's) has sugar in it, so that would explain the sweeter version. Hope this helps.
Abby in Atlanta

Cracker Barrel Tartar Sauce (Copycat/Clone)

3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Dill Relish
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Mix well. Place in fridge at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend and develop

Red Lobster's Tartar Sauce (Copycat/Clone)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 Tbs. sweet pickle relish
1-1/2 tsp finely shredded and minced carrots(the size of rice grain)
1-1/2 tsp sugar.
