Red, White and Blueberry Lemonade Pops
Servings 6

Now you can make this ice cream truck favorite at home! Simply freeze layers of berries, lemonade and creamy yogurt in pop molds. They’re perfect for the 4th of July and the rest of summer, too.

Red Layer
1 cup sliced strawberries
3 tablespoons lemonade, chilled
1 teaspoon sugar

White Layer
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt
3 tablespoons lemonade, chilled

Blueberry Layer
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup lemonade, chilled
1/2 teaspoon sugar

In blender, place red layer ingredients. Cover; blend until smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons mixture into each of 6 (5-oz) paper cups. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Freeze about 2 hours or until frozen.

When first layer is frozen, remove foil from pops. In small bowl, mix white layer ingredients until smooth. Spoon about 2 tablespoons mixture in each cup over frozen layer. Return foil to pops to support sticks. Freeze about 2 hours or until frozen.

Meanwhile, in blender, place blueberry layer ingredients. Cover; blend until smooth. When white layer is frozen, remove foil from pops. Spoon about 2 tablespoons blueberry layer mixture in each cup over white layer. Return foil to pops to support sticks. Freeze at least 6 hours until frozen.

Make these pops with traditional lemonade (not pink) so the middle layer is white.

I hope this helps her. It uses a grill pan on top of the stove.

Roast Sticky Chicken Recipe

I have made this recipe for chicken several times and it tastes just like the rotisserie chickens you buy in the store. Because you have the oven on so long, I usually do 2 at once and then freeze one for a later date. It is so good and very moist and most of the work is done the night before. Can also make chicken salad or many other dishes with leftovers.
Marion in Atlanta.

This recipe is reminiscent of those rotisserie-style chickens that are so popular now, and it is very easy to make. The meat comes out very moist and flavorful, so it is as good leftover as freshly cooked. You need to start this the night before serving. Can also make chicken salad or many other dishes with leftovers.
Marion in Atlanta.

4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. white pepper
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. black pepper
1 large roasting chicken, as
big as you can find
1 cup chopped onion

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in a shallow baking pan. Roast, uncovered, at 250 degrees for 5 hours (yes, 250 degrees for 5 hours). After the first hour, baste chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices. The pan juices will start to caramelize on the bottom of pan and the chicken will turn golden brown. If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.

Hi Nancy and all Nancylanders Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. We all ate too much but sure enjoyed setting off the fireworks later on in the evening. Only ones not happy were the fuzzies.

On the left side of the newsletter Nancy has a category for microwave recipes. You might want to check them out as a lot of them look pretty darn good. Here is the link to the recipes

Lite Frozen Chocolate Cheesecake Pie Recipe
A sweet, rich, creamy cocoa-cheesecake flavored filling is mixed in a blender or food processor and poured into a convenient store-bought chocolate cookie crumb crust. Serve straight from the freezer for an ice cream bar texture. Or, microwave for 15 seconds for a consistency closer to a chilled mousse.

1/2 cup Karo Lite Corn Syrup
1/2 cup fat free half and half
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sucralose sweetener
1 tablespoon sugar
1 (8 ounce) package fat free cream cheese, softened, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups (4 ounces) reduced calorie whipped topping, thawed
1 (9-inch) chocolate cookie crumb crustAdditional whipped topping and cocoa powder (optional, for garnish)

Heat corn syrup and half and half in a microwave-safe container for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips and heat for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth and well blended.

Pour mixture into blender or food processor; add cocoa, sucralose, sugar, cream cheese and vanilla. Blend on medium speed in blender until very smooth. Add whipped topping and mix until uniformly blended.

Pour into crust. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours. Remove from freezer and thaw for 15 to 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with additional whipped topping and cocoa powder, if desired

Recipe Tip: For a Mocha Pie stir 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules into the Karo Lite Syrup mixture before it is microwaved.

This is my recipe for Tomato Gravy requested by Wanda in the 6/30 newsletter. My experience is that tomato gravy is more of a southern food and is served over biscuits, noodles, dumplings, meats and some vegetables. It is a staple at some tables. There are probably thousands of different versions of this recipe, so don't get discouraged if this is not quite what your husband remembers from childhood. If he thinks it should be sweeter, just add a little bit of sugar or brown sugar. Also, some people refer to Italian meat sauce, what many call spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce, as tomato gravy. Make sure that is not what your husband is wanting before you try this recipe. It can be confusing with so many terms being used interchangeably.

In case anyone has tried or wants to try cooking eggs by steaming in the shells, I discovered another thing today to make it easier to help you peel them. After I steamed them, and cooled them off, I cracked them just around the middle instead of all over. The top and bottom of the eggs came off pretty much in one piece. If you missed the day where I explained how to steam them let me know and I’ll repost it. It certainly makes peeling eggs so much easier. I shortened the time up by one minute too, to 15 minutes, I’ll try it for 14 minutes next time. I guess it also depends on hard the water is boiling. I used to dread making deviled eggs, so much work to get those shells off, now I do them all the time.

I have been following you for years and you are the best. I know you have heard that a lot; however, your recipe site has saved my bacon on many, many occasions. So, thank you, thank you, thank you and Bless You and everyone who follows your site!

Does anyone remember the Jell-o in a box called "1-2-3"? I loved that Jello. Does anyone have a recipe for their own version of that product? I wish they would bring that product back on the market. Thank you, one and all.
