I have a question for Judy in Alaska about the recipe
for Fudge Dream Bars.
I did okay until I put it in to melt the marshmallows.
They rose up and I think I left it in too long. How do you tell when they are
melted. Was hard to spread the icing over marshmallows. Could you use
marshmallow crème instead?
They had a wonderful taste. Thinking if I make
them again, I may add some pecans to them. I would also like to say to Tina in
Michigan about freezing okra. I have a seal-a-meal and all I do is wash it,
slice it and bag it. The seal-a-meal removes all the moisture. I also use the
same process for my corn on the cob. I leave the shucks, etc. all on, freeze it
in a seal-a-meal bag as it is. When I thaw it, I merely put it on the grill or
in the oven on baking sheet. When done, I remove the shucks, silk, butter and
enjoy. Taste as fresh as if I cooked it the same day I got it.
Zelda in Kemp,
I recently made a batch of peanut butter cookies for my
granddaughter. Is it just me or has anybody else thought that peanut butter is
not as peanut flavored as it used to be?
The cookies are good and it
won't matter to her, but I was disappointed in the lack of flavor.

In the Aug 6th Newsletter Cheryl in Illinois asked:
Does anybody have a trick for successfully
freezing store bought bread loaves without the crusts ending up
hard and dry?
I thought putting the loaf (still in it's original plastic bag)
into an over sized ziploc bag might do the trick but I still ended up with hard
I double bag my bread, getting out as much air as
For me the trick was this:
When you take it out of the freezer,
DO NOT open until bread is fully thawed. If I take out a slice or two while it’s
still frozen I get really hard crusts.
Hope this works for you.
I would like an easy and quick way to
make little pizzas with biscuits,
tomato paste and a little oregano. I would appreciate your help with other
ingredients needed and how long to put the pizzas in the toaster oven.
Good Morning Miz Nancy and Critters:
When I saw
Hot Chicken Salad recipe in the
July 21st newsletter, it reminded me of my own recipe that I have not made
lately. It is one of our favorite comfort food dishes so we'll get one going
this week to serve with some fresh from the garden tomatoes and cucumbers.
I used to work in a law office and we would periodically have a pot luck
dinner. A sheet would go around the office for folks to write down the dish they
planned to bring. After I brought this casserole a couple of times (we had a
full size kitchen which was WONDERFUL), I found that by the time the sign-up
sheet made it to my desk, someone would have already written down that I was
bringing Hot Chicken Salad! Nice to be appreciated. At any rate, this is my
version and I hope it will become a favorite for others as well.

Robbie's Strawberry Pie Recipes
Judy CO lost her baked strawberry pie recipe. I doubt that this is the one
she had, but thought I would go ahead and share it. It is good, but my family
far prefers fresh strawberry pie. In fact I have been asked why I would want to
ruin strawberries by baking them. The second recipe is from a friends, who says
it is delicious. I have not made it, but trust her opinion. Thanks for all the
delicious recipes that you have shared in the newsletter.
Baked Sour Cream Strawberry Pie
1 Unbaked pie shell, chilled at least 2
1 quart Strawberries, hulled & halved
1 1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup sour cream
Place halved strawberries in pie shell. Mix 1 cup sugar
& flour in bowl, then mix in sour cream. Spread mixture evenly over
strawberries, then sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup ? sugar on top of filling. Bake @
425 degrees for 10 minutes then 350 degrees for one-half hour (approx.) Serve
with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired.
Strawberry Crumb Pie
For the Crust:
1 stick cold unsalted butter
ounces cold cream cheese
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
Pinch of salt
For the Crumb Topping:
3/4 cup rolled oatmeal
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter,
melted and cooled slightly
For the Filling:
6 cups (2 pounds) hulled,
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest
crust: Combine the butter and cream cheese in a food processor and process until
smooth. Add the flour and salt and process just until the mixture comes together
into a ball. Scrape out the dough, shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and
refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, prepare the crumb topping:
Combine the oatmeal, flour and sugar in a small bowl and toss to combine. Add
the melted butter and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Refrigerate the
topping until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350
degrees F. Working on a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick
and fit it into a 9- or 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom (you can also
use a springform pan). Trim the excess dough. Return the pie crust to the
refrigerator for 20 minutes. Line the crust with foil, fill with pie weights or
dried beans and bake until lightly golden, about 18 minutes. Remove the foil and
weights and let the crust cool on a wire rack. Increase the oven temperature to
375 degrees F.
Make the filling: Toss the strawberries, sugar, lemon
juice, cornstarch and orange zest in a mixing bowl. Spoon the strawberry filling
into the crust and spread the crumb topping evenly over the berries. Bake in the
middle of the oven for 1 hour, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust and
topping are golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool to room temperature before
