Bette was wanting to know how to make waffles without a waffle iron. There is a delicious waffle recipe and method to make them at www.alwaysorderdessert.com
I hope this helps her. It uses a grill pan on top of the stove.

There was no newsletter sent out July 1st.  The internet would stay on a while and go off a while.  It was not reliable enough to post a newsletter.

Nancy, this is the way my Mother made tomato gravy. She just used tomato juice for the liquid and made the gravy like you make gravy.
Always enjoy your newsletter.

While traveling in Southern Utah, we were served a wonderful homemade raspberry bar with whole wheat crust. Absolutely delicious from the word go. Looked like a fig newton, crust was dark, but not sweet, and not lightweight. No frosting-just pure delight. Does anyone have a recipe even closely resembling what I have described?
Thanks in advance, Sherry

Nancy, have to ‘fess up that I have not tried this recipe, but hoping even so it might be the one Amanda is seeking. Found this in a book I actually bought in Amish country {Lancaster PA}, titled “Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook.”

Hello Nancy and all Landers,
I want to say a BIG thank you to Sharon K. in the June 29th newsletter for her recipe for Mom's Cornbread Recipe. I have been looking for a really great cornbread recipe for a long time and this one is the very best. All the other recipes I've found had very little sugar in them and I like a really sweet cornbread. Thank you again Sharon.

Dawn wanted to know how to steam broccoli in the microwave. It is easy and a healthy way to prepare any vegetable. If you just want plain broccoli, don't mix up the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper. Allison might want to try this recipe, if her husband will eat broccoli.

Microwave lemon Garlic Broccoli Recipe

2 heads fresh broccoli, cleaned and cut into florets
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes- optional
Salt and pepper to taste

Microwave broccoli and water in microwave safe bowl with lid on high for 6 minutes or until crisp tender.( Do not completely or tightly cover bowl with lid. Leave a small gap. Be careful when removing dish from microwave.)
While it is cooking mix the rest of the ingredients together.
Drain cooked broccoli.

Pour lemon garlic mixture over broccoli and mix to coat. If using fresh garlic cover the dish and let sit for about 2 minutes to allow heat from broccoli to "cook" and remove the raw taste from the garlic.

If using garlic powder you are ready to serve.

If you've been craving a good bowl of chili, but don't want to sweat over a hot stove making it when the weather is so warm outside, put this all together in your Crock Pot and forget about it until it's time to eat. Yummy! Can serve with shredded Cheddar cheese and saltine crackers or tortilla chips.

Ann in Texas~
I, also cannot stand comfortably. But solved that with my (height adjustable) swivel barstool. Am able to sit in one spot and, by turning, reach refrigerator, stove, counter, and sink. I've a small kitchen to be able do all that--but I imagine a barstool would help you to work efficiently at your countertop or sink at least.

I'm very fussy about meat loaf, as far as the texture, and of course the taste, so this is one I concocted sometime ago, and quickly became a favorite. It is quick to put together also, so is another plus. This makes wonderful sandwiches
when it's cold also.

South Of The Border Meat loaf Recipe

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers, crushed
1 large egg
1/3 cup Salsa (I use mild)
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup catsup
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. lemon juice

Combine meat mixture together in a large bowl and shape into a loaf in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. 15 minutes before it's done, combine topping ingredients and spread over the top and continue baking for the last 15 minutes.

Mustard Style BBQ Sauce Recipe
for pork loin or just pork

1 cup yellow mustard (liquid)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons butter
11 /2 teaspoons liquid smoke (hickory flavoring)
Mix together mustard, sugar, brown sugar, cider vinegar, water, chili powder, black pepper and white pepper. Simmer 30 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, butter and liquid smoke, and simmer for 10 more minutes. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend. Refrigerate unused sauce.

Put loin in plastic bag or nonreactive dish and pour brine over until loin is immersed. Refrigerate overnight. (Freeze unused brine for future use.)

Prepare smoker. Maintain smoker temperature at 180°F.
Remove loin from brine and wipe dry. (Discard used brine.) Rub all sides of loin with dry rub and mop with barbecue sauce. Spray all sides of loin with cooking oil. Put loin on smoker grate over pan of water. Insert meat thermometer probe into meat. After 2 hours, mop loin on all sides with barbecue sauce and turn.

COOKING TIME: About 4 hours to reach 160°F, the USDA recommended safe minimum internal temperature for pork. I recommend smoking until the internal temperature is 170°F.

BBQ TIP 1: Smoke 2 or more loins at a time. They freeze well and are great to have on hand for a special treat during a busy holiday or when unexpected guests arrive.

BBQ TIP 2: Sliced smoked loin sandwiches beat any lunchmeat available. So wonderful

Also, several years ago I made a wonderful fig and walnut tart. I can't find the recipe.
I have so many figs. ;()
