At my house we love anything with blackberries. Here are a few recipes that I have made in the past. All recipes were from Nancy's Kitchen and the NancyLand Newsletter.

Add enough milk to make a stiff batter. Bring blackberry mixture to a boil. Add dough a spoonful at a time into the boiling mixture. Cover with a lid, reduce heat slightly to prevent sticking and cook, covered for about 15 to

This recipe is for Jenna, who was looking for ways to use
dried cherries. I absolutely love these cookies! For Christmas
I have used the dried cranberries also and they were wonderful too.

1 cup dried cherries, or cranberries

In electric mixer bowl, combine butter and sugar and cream well until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat in. Mix in dry pudding mix. Add dry ingredients and blend on low speed until thoroughly mixed in to creamed mixture. Stir in cherries. Drop dough by tablespoon onto parchment-lined (or greased) cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Remove to wire racks after 5 minutes to cool completely. Store leftover cookies in airtight container. Makes 3 dozen delicious cookies.

This is for Sally, Dayton, who was looking for an easy recipe to take for lunch. I used to take this often, when I worked and would share with the girls I sat with.

Chicken or Beef Tortillas Recipe

2 tortilla wraps (I use either the tomato/basil or spinach)
1/2 cup chicken or beef
1/2 cup shredded cheese (either cheddar or Mexican blend)
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream

Place chicken or beef on one tortilla wrap, sprinkle cheese, top with second tortilla wrap. Place on microwave safe plate and microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until meat is warm and cheese is melted. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

You can make as many a you prefer. I would make two or three and cut into triangles and wrap in foil until lunchtime, then placing them on a plate and microwaving when ready.

Judy's Spam Recipes
Here a couple more recipes using Spam for Brenda, if she is looking for more. This is a dish I use to make often when our children were growing up, and we  still enjoy it. I often use the turkey Spam now, or the low sodium kind. I think this would also be good using canned corned beef.

Spam Potato Casserole

6 medium potatoes
1 medium onion, diced
1 to 2 cans of Spam, cut in small cubes
1/8 cup flour
1-1/2 cup milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
Garlic powder, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Peel and slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick and put in 9 x 13 inch pan.
Sprinkle with garlic powder and pepper and cover with diced
onion. Add milk gradually to flour, stirring until smooth. Pour over potatoes. Put cubed Spam over that and spoon soup over the top. Cover and bake at 350 for about 1 hour and 45 minutes, removing cover for the last 30 minutes.

Here us another recipe for Brenda using Spam. This is quick to fix and one my hubby has always enjoyed. I use the commercial corn flake crumbs in a box from the store.

Crusty Spam Bake

1/2 cup corn flake crumbs
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 can Spam
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
8 canned Pineapple slices
Melted butter
Parsley, for garnish (optional)

Combine corn flake crumbs, brown sugar and cloves. Cut Spam crosswise into 8 slices. Spread both sides of the slices with mustard then coat generously with corn flake crumb mixture. Place Spam and pineapple slices individually in a foil-lined shallow baking dish (do not crowd). Brush pineapple slices with butter. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Serve on heated platter by placing a Spam slice on each pineapple slice. Add parsley if desired (I don't).
Makes 4 servings of 2 slices each.

These are really good. I like to add a little soy sauce to the sauce after the dish is done and then thicken some with cornstarch in water and serve over cooked egg noodles.

Sweet N Sour Hamburger Patties Recipe

2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup milk

Pepper, to taste
1/8 tsp. nutmeg

1 medium onion, sliced
Cooking oil

Cook the sliced onion in a little cooking oil in skillet till soft; remove from pan and brown meat patties; drain. while patties are browning, prepared sauce. Put cooked onion slices on top of patties and pour sweet 'n sour sauce over and simmer slowly for about 35 minutes, covered.

This is for Mary, who in the 8/20 newsletter wanted recipes for carrot and potato steamed pudding. This recipe was given to me by a friend. I have not made it or tasted it, but thought I would share since no one else has responded to your request. I have also seen recipes that include suet. I hope this helps you.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
I have a request for all our Lander bakers/cooks. I went to a baby shower yesterday and they had an awesome Poppy Roll I think they called it. They had gotten it from the bakery so no one had a recipe.

I have made Poppy Roll in the past and the bread part was rather dense. This one the bread part was more of a sweet roll dough kind of thing. I have a recipe for Sweet Roll dough but was wondering if anyone in Nancyland had a good recipe for this. Many thanks to all our wonderful bakers/cooks in Nancyland who help us all finding recipes we request.

Some time back there was a recipe posted for making a quart of oil and vinegar type dressing with suggested seasonings. I know I saved it but -- where? Have tried searching for it but not sure of the name. Does anyone recall the one I mean.

Thanks to everyone for all the great reading of recipes you provide.

Here is another pull apart recipe for Melissa (8/16 n newsletter). They are always a big hit with our family. Use your favorite cheeses to vary the taste.

A big thank you to Lynn for her egg gravy recipe. Since a flood, I've been trying to accumulate some of my damaged beyond repair recipes. I had completely forgotten about this. Grandma called it creamed eggs on toast -- and it was a main dish for the supper table. She would often stir in left over vegetables and dice up any left over meat (if she had any) in it. We loved this meal. She topped off the meal with a simple fruit cobbler. Thanks again!
