This message is for Athena in DE. I would like to try your recipe for Mini Tuna Casseroles that was posted in the newsletter for 8/11/14. Is there anything else I could substitute for the crushed potato chips?

Does anyone have a recipe for NY style cheesecake that calls for 8 cream cheeses? I used to make this recipe all the time and since I've lost all my recipes I cannot find it anywhere, I've searched high and low on the internet to no avail, there are other recipes out there but none with this much cream cheese, which I think is what made the big difference, I got rave reviews every time I made it. Thanks.

I failed to note the name of the individual who wanted ideas for brown bag lunches. Here are a few ideas and any of the recipes that recently appeared for using the small cans of tuna or for cooking for 1-2 would also be great options. With sandwiches, I have found that the bread you choose can greatly increase the appeal of the filling, unless you or the people you are serving only eat store bought traditional white bread. When my husband and I were working, we took portions of our evening meal for lunch, if it was a favorite. We did not view it as eating the leftovers, but enjoying another delicious meal. I also took many tempting salads and homemade soups. Try different flavors of cream cheese in any of the recipes. These make great easy appetizers as well as lunch options.

Nancy, Ally in NJ brought it to my attention that I hadn't said if the whole kernel corn needed to be drained. (Thanks again, Ally.)

And the answer is: that depends. If using niblets, no - don't drain. But there's lots more liquid in other whole kernel corn so drain about 1/2 of it off. Otherwise the mix will be too soggy.

Thanks to Athena in De for suggesting peanut butters to try. We donít have a Safeway store but we do have Walmart, Iíll check there for the Organic one she mentioned.

I have a question about sour apples. We have 2 wild apple trees, I donít know where they came from, they just started growing after we bought this land. I tried cooking with some last year but they are the most sour apples Iíve ever seen. I made apple sauce but it was more sugar than apples. Do you have any ideas for how to use them?
