TNT Sweet Tea recipe for Linda from Pa.

Fill a 2-3 quart container about 3/4 full with water. I use a mixing bowl with a handle. Remove wrappers from 7 Lipton tea bags. Remove the paper tabs at the end of the strings and tie the strings together in a knot. This makes them easier to remove. Place in water in bowl. Microwave for 15 minutes. It will be hot when you remove it, so use hotpads. Pour into a 1-gallon pitcher. Remove tea bags and squeeze the excess liquid out of them and into the pitcher, being careful not to break the bags open. Stir in 3/4-1 cup sugar, depending on your taste. Stir well to dissolve sugar. Finish filling pitcher with water. Pour over ice in glass, sit back and enjoy.

This can also be made on the stovetop by putting water into a 2-3 quart saucepan, bringing it to a boil and boiling gently for 10 minutes. Follow the remainder of the recipe.

Makes 1 gallon.

I have another suggestion for the Strawberry – Pineapple Pretzel Salad Recipe.

This is for the recipe in the June 14th newsletter from Judy (Alaska)

I make the Strawberry Pretzel Salad Recipe in the fall and winter, but for spring and summer I use lime green Jell-O in place of the strawberry and put the crushed pineapple (15 oz. can) in place of the strawberries. Everything else is the same for the recipe except for the exchange in Jell-O and the strawberries. Very refreshing. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

Eggplant Special Dish (Imam Baildi)

1/2 c. oil
1/4 bunch parsley

Cut eggplant lengthwise into 6 pieces. Sprinkle liberally with salt and let stand for 1 hour.
Dry with paper towels. Brush with oil and bake at 450 degrees until light brown. Heat oil and sauté all ingredients except parsley and tomatoes, until soft. Add parsley and tomatoes and cook a little more. Make a pocket in each slice of eggplant and fill with stuffing. Arrange in greased baking pan. Pour tomato sauce over all. Bake at 375 degrees for 1/2 hour.

In the June 15 newsletter your recipe, Genie, for Blackberry Cobbler says a10x10 inch pan. Is that a mistake? Do you mean 9x13? Is there ample juice in the finished product or is it consistency of a batter cobbler?

Banana Creme Cake Recipe

1 box yellow cake mix (& ingredients to make cake)
2 box (small) instant banana pudding
4 c milk
8 oz whipped topping
20 vanilla wafers, crushed
sliced bananas - use your own judgment

Follow the direction on the cake mix box to prepare the actual cake. Prepare it in a 9 x 13" pan. When golden, remove from over and let cool for a few minutes.

When just slightly cooled, use the end of a wooden spoon (the handle end) to poke holes into the baked cake. Don't be shy; make the holes big enough for the pudding to seep into and go deep enough with the spoon that you hit the bottom of the pan.

Next, prepare your pudding mixture. Combine your 4 cups of milk and the instant pudding mix; whisk until fully combined and there are no lumps.

Now it's time to fill those holes! Pour the pudding mixture over the entire cake, taking care to get it into all your holes. Use the spoon to help really get it into the cake and spread evenly.

Refrigerate for about two hours... or until set. Top with whipped topping, crushed vanilla wafers and sliced banana!
refrigerate any leftovers

Old Timey Butter Roll Dessert

For the Butter Rolls
2 Cups Self Rising Flour
1/2 Cup Shortening
1/2 Cup Milk
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Butter, softened
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Milk Sauce
2 Cups milk
2/3 Cups Sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cut shortening into flour really well with a fork. Stir in milk.

On a floured surface, dump out dough and press together with your hands to form a ball.

Roll out into a rectangle (about 7×10 in size). Spread softened butter over dough and then sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon over top. Roll it up like a jelly roll and press it together lightly.

Cut into nine slices about one inch thick each. Place into a lightly greased 8×8 baking dish.

In medium sauce pot, combine all milk sauce ingredients. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to bubble lightly. Pour over rolls in pan.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, or until rolls are lightly browned on top.

Allow to sit for a few minutes once it is done for the rolls to soak up more sauce. After you put each roll on a plate, spoon more sauce over it.

I have been using it all summer…also makes unsweetened tea which I prefer.

Thanks to Robbie IN for her recipes.
I made a rice pudding using one of Robbie’s recipes and it was very good. I am always interested in rice puddings/custards. Good reading and reminds me of my mother.

The past couple days, the blackberry recipes caught my attention and I plan to bake them.
I baked “a sort-of blackberry bread” for breakfast today using 1-1/2 cups strawberry cake mix, 2 eggs and stick of softened butter; then stirred in 1-1/2 cup whole blackberries. Not too sweet, simple, but we liked it warm.

Now, my daughter is in need of plum recipes, since the plums are getting ripe. Any type of dish using plums would be welcomed: cobblers, cakes, bread, sauces etc.

The plum is about 1-1/4 inch diameter; goes from green, yellow, blush, then red ripe and soft. (She thinks the supplier mislabeled the name of the plum; therefore I don’t have that)

Looks like we will have an abundance of figs this season. Small and medium size. Fig recipes would be welcomed.

My daughter has a cat. About 11 pounds, Looks like one of yours. I email your stories to her. We enjoy.

Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Total Time: 30 mins
Makes: 2 to 3 servings

3/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 1/4 teaspoons peeled, grated fresh ginger (from about a 1-1/2-inch piece), grated on the small holes of a box grater
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
Freshly ground black pepper
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 medium scallions, thinly sliced

Bring the soy sauce and honey to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring often until the honey has completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger, stir to combine, remove from the heat, and set aside.
If using chicken breasts, place them on a cutting board and cover with a sheet of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or a frying pan to gently pound them to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut each in half so you have 4 pieces roughly the same size. (If using chicken thighs, no need to pound or cut.) Season both sides of the chicken with pepper.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat until shimmering. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook without disturbing until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the second side until browned, about 3 minutes more.
Reduce the heat to medium, slowly pour in the reserved sauce, and cook, flipping the chicken occasionally to coat in the sauce, until cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Transfer the chicken from the pan, letting the excess sauce drip off, to a clean cutting board. Reduce the sauce in the pan over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes more. Slice the chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Place on a serving dish, top with the sauce, and sprinkle with the scallions.

I make bread in my breadmaker all the time. What I do is mix all the wet ingredients together like the warm water, an egg if called for, oil or melted butter. I always let the egg come to room temp, too. Then make sure you have rinsed the breadmaker pan with warm to hot water to get it nice and cozy for the warm liquid. Add the liquid.

Now mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl or other container like the flour, sugar, salt, brown sugar, nuts, etc. Add this mixture to the liquid in the breadpan. Make a small “well” in the mixture and add the yeast. Sometimes in the cold winter months I even microwave the dry ingredients for a few seconds to warm it. My pantry is cold so the flour is, too!

That’s my method and with my particular West Bend bread machine it doesn’t start mixing for almost 7 minutes! It just sits there and I don’t know why but once it starts it works fine and my bread turns out great.

I always like main dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and put in the refrigerator until the next day. Is perfect for a holiday, and special enough serving to company. I like to buy a rotisserie chicken from the deli to use for this tasty dish.
