I have lost a recipe for a Mexican Casserole I used to make. I remember
some of the ingredients were cooked ground beef, a can of cream of
chicken soup, tomato sauce, some spices, maybe some chilies. It was
layered in a casserole dish with corn tortillas, cheese and baked. Was
very good. I hope some of you friends have something similar and will
send it in. I would like to make this again.

In the 9/4 newsletter Liz Murillo requested whipped cream cake recipes.
I hope this is what she remembers from childhood. Her mom could have
used another flavor of extract, such as almond, orange, or lemon, but
most recipes that I have read use the vanilla extract. Many recipes
don't call for dusting the greased tube pan with flour, but I prefer to
do that as I think the cake comes out easier. I am also not sure why
most recipes call for placing the cake in a cold oven, then turning it
on. I am guessing it has to do with the types of ovens that were used 40
- 60 years ago. I would also not substitute margarine for the butter.

Robbie in Indiana responded to a
reader request for Buckeyes and her recipe is the traditional
ingredients and method and delicious, but as I am sure she will attest ,
it is time consuming. I, on the other hand ,have a tendency to simplify
and go easier routes so my version is a
Buckeye Bar recipe
Mix 2 cups creamy peanut butter
butter or margarine, softened
2 cups finely crushed graham crackers
either purchased or crush approx. 24 squares in food processor or with
rolling pin in a zip lock bag.
Do not skip using the cracker
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted is best to avoid lumps.
I generally mix this with my hands as it is quite stiff. Press into a
buttered 8 or 9 inch square pan.
Melt a 12 oz. package of
chocolate chips in the microwave- milk chocolate or semi-sweet as your
preference. Spread over the peanut mixture quickly and let harden in the
refrigerator before cutting into bars. This is rich so keep the bars

years ago I found Hershey's sugar free chocolate chunks at our grocery
stores around Christmas time. For years, no one carried it and I had to
buy Online, which was a lot more expensive. I just found Hershey sugar
free chocolate chips at our Hy-Vee and Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart had the better
price. I haven't been looking for them for a while and was surprised to
see them back. Maybe someone else in Nancyland watches their sugar and
would like to know about this product.

Mary Ann Upstate N.Y. wanted to know
if she could freeze her leftover
buttermilk. I have done that for years. Freeze it in the
quantity you will likely need for your next recipe, such as 1/2 cup. I
would not freeze a large quantity, thaw it, remove 1/2 cup and try to
freeze the remaining amount again. You As Nancy has already mentioned
can also buy
powdered buttermilk which works well in baking and
cooking. I agree that The Prepared Pantry sells a great product, which I
keep on hand.
