Nancy, belated Happy Birthday. At my age on my birthday I say it is pass over day, I came up with that when my DH asked how old I was one year. I have a recipe that I like making and it is easy.

Convenient Lasagna

1 lb. ground beef, I use sirloin
1, 29 oz., can tomato sauce
1, 8 oz., pkg. lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1½ cups ricotta or cottage cheese

Spray the interior of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Brown the beef in a large nonstick skillet and drain drippings. Stir in the tomato sauce; mix well. Combine the cheeses in a bowl. Spread one fourth of the meat sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker. Arrange a third of the noodles over the top of the sauce, break them up to fit better. Spoon a third of the cheese over the noodles. Repeat these layers twice. Top with remaining sauce. Cook on low fro 4 hours. You can add onion, add Italian seasoning to the meat mixture and if you want to add mozzarella cheese to the top of the lasagna 5 minutes before serving.

Everyone have a great day. Nancy and associates stay safe, take care and comfortable.

I googled it and this is what came up: lyle's golden syrup

Web definitions
Golden syrup is a pale treacle. It is a thick, amber-coloured form of inverted sugar syrup, made in the process of refining sugar cane or sugar beet juice into sugar, or by treatment of a sugar solution with acid. It is used in a variety of baking recipes and desserts. ...

I am sorry, I should have put in the recipe that I used honey instead of Lyle's golden syrup. I've never seen it in any of the grocery stores that I've been to but I know it's from the UK. Here is a link for the syrup and I don't think they meant karo or corn syrup when they said honey instead of golden syrup. How much damage can you do if you're wrong, it's only 1 tablespoon.

This is a wonderful recipe for shredded pork

Shredded Pork recipe

2-3 pounds boneless sirloin pork roast, or sirloin tip roast, trimmed and tied with kitchen twine if necessary
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4-5 cloves garlic, skins removed, crushed
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon oregano
4 oranges, juiced or 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
4 limes, juiced

Cooking Directions
Using a sharp knife, poke a few holes into the pork and stuff holes with half of the crushed garlic. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the pork and brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the meat to a slow cooker. Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend for a few seconds until evenly combined. Place the pork in the slow cooker. Pour the liquid mixture over the pork, and let the pork marinate in the mixture for about 10 minutes on each side. Turn the slow cooker on low, and set the timer for 8 hours. After 8 hours, remove pork and shred using two forks on a large cutting board. Remove all the liquid from the slow cooker except for 1 cup of the cooking liquid and add pork back to pot. Let it cook another 15-30 minutes. Serve the shredded pork over lettuce wraps or in corn tortillas, and top with pico de gallo, chopped cilantro and/or avocado.
Serves 4-6, plus leftovers

In the July, 2011 newsletter, Susan/ Superior, WI was looking for the recipe for Eli Zabar's health bread. I have the recipe, which I got from Eli Zabar himself. If you are still looking for it, let me know how to get it to you. It's wonderful!

Baking Tips and Hints

Making self-rising flour. You can make your own self-rising flour for biscuits, pancakes, or other products by mixing 1/2 tablespoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt with each one cup of all purpose flour.

Homemade bread is healthier. Check the label on that bread that you bought from the grocery store. Chances are, you'll find a listing of unfamiliar ingredients, colorings, and preservatives. You might find hydrogenated oil and the flour is likely to be bleached. Because the bread is days old, these ingredients are necessary to keep the bread soft and mold-free. When you serve homemade bread, you know the bread is fresh, you know what went into the bread, and you are eating familiar, fresh ingredients. We believe that this is a healthier alternative.

(In case you are wondering—our mixes are like homemade. You add the butter or oil. There is no hydrogenated fat. There are no preservatives, artificial ingredients, or colorings. Except for possibly the dough conditioner, there is nothing that you wouldn't use in your kitchen.)

Bundt pans. We use bundt pans regularly. With all those ridges, it's hard to get the cake to release from the pan. The solution? Grease the pan well and then dust it with flour by putting a tablespoon of flour in the greased pan and shaking it around. If you jar the pan with the heal of your hand as you shake the flour, it will work down into the valleys and any spots that you missed with the grease will be evident.

Toasted nuts. Toasted nuts add extra flavor to deserts or breads. It's easy to toast nuts and doesn't take long. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread the nuts evenly on a baking sheet. Bake, stirring one or twice, for five to ten minutes or until browned. Cool on a paper towel.

You can also brown nuts in the microwave for three to five minutes, stirring occasionally, or you can brown nuts be frying them in a small amount of butter.

Eggshells in the batter. Tired of eggshells in the batter? Break eggs this way and egg shells will never be a problem again. Break the eggs on the counter and open them into a cup before adding them to the batter. The flat surface will tend to not break the shells into small pieces as the edge of a bowl does and if you do have shells in the eggs, they tend to stay in the cup.

Evaporated milk. Evaporated milk is whole milk that has had about 50% of the water removed so that it has twice the fat and protein of whole milk. It is sterilized in the can.

You cannot substitute whole milk for evaporated milk in recipes but you can reconstitute evaporated milk by adding an equal amount of water for use as a whole milk substitute in recipes
