Thanks Robbie IN for the info on how to
improve the taste of creamed corn.
I’ll give the suggestions a try and see what my husband thinks. No doubt he’d
like the bacon addition. I had always loved bacon up until one Easter when I
sort of overindulged. We have the whole family here for breakfast and an egg
hunt for the kids. As I was cooking the 4 or 5 pounds of
bacon I was heavily

Lisa G wanted Romanian and European recipes, as she has
lost all of her families treasured ones. I hope this one you enjoy.
Romanian chicken kebabs or frigarui
Frigarui is also made with pork or beef and sometimes bacon skewered with
onions, peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms and then grilled. It is a popular
Romanian street food.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut
into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1 ounce mixed chopped herbs (thyme, rosemary, parsley)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cloves crushed garlic
3 ounces plain yogurt
In a plastic
zip-top bag, combine herbs, pepper, lemon juice, sugar, ginger, garlic and
yogurt. Add chicken cubes, covering all the pieces with marinade, and
or at least three hours.
Heat grill. Thread
chicken pieces on skewers that have been soaked in water for about an hour so
they don't catch fire on the grill. Grill chicken kebabs on greased grates about
minutes or until done. These can also be prepared on an indoor grill,
broiler or oven.

Hi everyone: I have not been able to
"Send" recipes for quite some
time now. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?? I will "Send" a
recipe and the response comes up that the recipe has been "Sent" but it never
arrives to its destination! I like to "Send" recipes to my sister or to my own
account and then put them in a Folder, but have not been able to do so for about
3-4 months now. Just wondering if it's me, or if anyone else has this problem??
