I need recipes for using lemon in them. My family loves lemon pudding and lemon meringue pie. Any Landers out there have other tried and tested lemon recipes?

A while back someone was wanting a recipe that the caramel didn't get hard.. I have never used this recipe but it would stand to reason that one would have to add some cream to the caramel when U were melting it.. Pat from SW Okla.

Turtles Candy

1- 8 0z bag of Caramels
2 T Heavy Cream
1 C Pecan Halves salted
1 lb Ambrosia Milk Chocolate or 16 oz Sq Semi-Sweet Chocolate.
Melt Caramels in Heavy Cream. Arrange Pecan Halves 4 or 5 on a greased or wax paper. Spoon Caramel into small mound in the middle of the nuts. Let stand to set the Caramel. Melt the Chocolate . Stir gently. Coat Caramel. Let stand to set.

Today in my email I got an email that contained a virus in it.  I opened the email and infected my computer.  It has taken all day to remove the virus and restore my computer back where I can use it.  Before I posted the recipes and before I sent an email out letting you all know the recipes have been posted online, my computer was checked and rechecked to make sure no virusstill existed on my computer.

After reinstalling several programs (including the website),  it was after 2:00 AM.  I will make a link so the recipes can be printable tomorrow.  Wanted to get the recipes online they can be viewed.

If you don't want to wait until I get the Print this Recipe link, you can place your cursor in the frame you wish to print and click it three times.  The recipe within that frame should be highlighted.  After the text is highlighted, right click with your mouse, and choose the print option.  When the print screen comes up, change the Print range option from all to selection.  This will allow you to only print what you have highlighted.

Tomorrow when I am updating the site remember to press the F5 button on the top row of the computer to reload the page if it doesn't load.  Pages tend not load when I am updating the pages.

This soup really has a good flavor, and is perfect for a chilly winter day. I use mild Italian sausage, but if you like foods spicier, use the hot sausage.

Sausage Garbanzo Soup

1 lb. bulk Italian sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
3-1/2 cups water
1 can (15 oz.) garbanzo beans, undrained
1-1/2 cups cubed potatoes
4 tsp. instant beef bouillon granules
1 tsp. paprika

In large saucepan, cook sausage and onion till meat is browned; drain. Stir in water, undrained beans, raw potatoes, bouillon and paprika. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer covered for 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Serves
6 to 8.

Hi there Landers. Glad more are sending
in such good recipes. It is refreshing to see new names and recipes. This is a good one and I bet you have ham in your freezer left over from the

Tortellini with Ham, Peas, and Tomato Cream Sauce

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
2 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes (from one 28-ounce can)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream ( I used Evaporated milk )
1 pound cheese tortellini
1/4 pound ham, cut into 1/4-inch strips
3/4 cup frozen petite peas, defrosted

In a large stainless-steel frying pan, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes with their juice, the salt, and the pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cream and cook for 1 minute longer.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the tortellini until just done, about 4 minutes for fresh, 12 minutes for frozen. Drain the pasta and add it to the pan with the sauce. Stir in the ham and peas and cook until warmed through, about 2 minutes.
Garnish w/ parmesan cheese if desired.
Yield: 4 servings.
