Seafood Gazpacho Recipe

This is a winner for the summer - very, very good.

2 small cans chopped clams, drained
2 small cans baby shrimp, drained
2 small cans crab meat, shredded
1 onion, chopped (I grate it)
4 stalks celery, sliced thin
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded , chopped (I grate this too)
2 quart jars clamato juice (I use regular tomato juice or V8 or spicy V8)
1 (12 ounce) can Snappy Tom juice
Juice of 2 limes

That's it - and you can play with the juices to your liking. I like grating those two veggies because then you don't get huge chunks but that's up to you. Sometimes I even use Bloody Mary mix for the juice - depends on my mood.

It's very refreshing and low cal, low carb as well.

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.

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 crusts.
Thank you!

I double bag my bread, getting out as much air as possible.
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 the 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.

Strawberry Crumb Pie

For the Crust:
1 stick cold unsalted butter
3 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
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

For the Filling:
6 cups (2 pounds) hulled, quartered strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest

Make the 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 serving.
