H and H Baby Back Pork Ribs Recipe
Servings: 6 - 8

2 racks pork back ribs, (about 1 1/2-pounds per rack)
1 12-oz jar prepared mesquite-flavored marinade
3 bay leaves
1 medium onion, peeled
1 cup barbecue sauce, (mild or spicy)
1/2 cup brown sugar

In a large stockpot, place both racks of ribs; add enough water to cover ribs. Add marinade, bay leaves and onion. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat. (This will create foam on top.)

Reduce to medium-low heat; simmer 45 minutes or until ribs are just tender.
Remove ribs from cooking liquid; drain on rimmed baking sheet.
Heat grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees F.).
Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce and brown sugar.

Brush over both sides of ribs.
Place ribs on grill, bone side down, close lid.
Grill for 7 minutes, turn and grill 7 minutes more.
Serves 6 to 8

Selecting Potatoes Tip
For the individual who has trouble baking potatoes make sure you use starchy potatoes for baking, like russets. Potatoes can be divided into two categories: waxy potatoes and starchy potatoes. Though waxy potatoes can come in red and white varieties, new red potatoes are the most popular. Russet potatoes are the most popular starchy potatoes. Waxy potatoes have a much higher moisture content and a different cell structure than starchy potatoes. Waxy potatoes are best for boiling, pan frying, and canning. They will hold their shape well in water and take abuse in the frying pan without coming apart. Russet potatoes are light and fluffy and are perfect for baked potatoes and mashed potatoes.. Much of this information is from Dennis The prepared Pantry's guide to potatoes.

Helpful Hint - Deviled Eggs
I may have sent this before, I can’t remember. But itt’s a good trick to know, especially for this time of year when we are making lots of deviled eggs for parties and picnics.

This is a new, at least to me, way to cook hard boiled eggs that you can easily peel. It even works on eggs you just bought at the store. I haven’t tried it with farm fresh eggs.

Put a few inches of water in a steamer and bring to a boil. Put the eggs in the top part and put the cover on. I cooked 14 eggs last week. It didn’t say in the directions if you could cook two layers of eggs at a time, a few of mine were half on another egg. If you don’t have a steamer you can use a large pot, a metal colander and a cover. That’s what I use. Make sure the holes in the steamer are below the edge of the pot so no steam escapes.

Steam them for 16 minutes and then cool (run cold water over them to stop them from cooking more). They peeled perfectly. I think this method also keeps that white skin in the shells too so there’s less of that to have to peel off too.

Crustless Apple Pie Recipe

Vegetable Spray
Whites of 2 large eggs, or egg substitute equivalent to 1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup diced peeled apples
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, dry-roasted

Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly spray an 8-inch pie pan with vegetable oil spray. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, sugars, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, lemon zest and nutmeg with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Stir in the flour just to blend. Beat until smooth and well blended.

Stir in the apples. Spoon into the pie pan. Sprinkle the nuts over the apple mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Note from book: The pie will puff up as it cooks, then collapse as it cools. Moist and rich, this pie is also easy and tasty--it's a real winner. Serve it warm or chilled.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Newsletter looks wonderful today. I have a request for all our bakers in Nancyland. I'm looking for recipes for cakes that use a small 8x8 cake pan. I have lots recipes for rhubarb cakes but they all call for a 9x13 pan and with just the two of us a big cake like that just goes to waste. I would like any recipes for small cakes. Thanks in advance.

This is a delicious dessert that will appeal to everyone's taste buds and is an ideal summertime dessert. I like to use the chocolate flavored Cool Whip when I can find it, but can't always get it, so the regular Cool Whip works good too.

Could probably use any flavor instant pudding and ice cream, such as chocolate instant pudding with chocolate ice cream, or butterscotch pudding and butter brickle ice cream.

Ice Cream Dessert Recipe

1 pkg. (10 oz.) Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, crushed
1/2 cup butter, softened

2 cups cold milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 quart (4 cups) vanilla ice cream, softened
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip, chocolate or plain (thawed)
3 Heath candy bars, crushed

Combine butter and cookie crumbs and pat into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. With electric mixer, blend pudding, milk, vanilla and ice cream on low until smooth. Spread over cooled crust. Let chill until firm. Cover with Cool Whip and sprinkle with candy bars. Refrigerate until served.
