It is a great joy compiling this newsletter each day and sharing the tried and tested recipe of our family (members.) In my opinion what makes this newsletter stand above other newsletters is our family (members) sending in their tested recipes rather than just looking up recipes on the internet and posting them. Our family here has some of the best recipes on the internet. Thank you all so much for sharing them with us.

Great Chicken Recipe

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp. red wine or apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
fresh rosemary, finely chopped

reheat oven to 425 F.
Place chicken breasts into 9×13 greased baking dish. Pierce with tines of fork all over. Sprinkle with salt; set aside for 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix together mustard, syrup, vinegar, and pepper.
Pour mustard mixture over chicken. Make sure each breast is coated well.

Bake uncovered for about 30-40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 165 F. For a more caramelized crust, leave chicken in longer or place under the broiler for a minute or two.
Season with rosemary.

Notes: To make this in the slow cooker, combine all ingredients and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

I enjoy your newsletter so much Nancy and I would like to send a hint that has helped me so much since I discovered this product. I have seen and printed off many recipes for cakes and breads that tell me to grease and flour the pans. I used to do that but not longer I use PAM or CRISCO COOKING SPRAY WITH FLOUR The cakes and breads come out so nice. No chunks left in the pan. I ALWAYS seem to have a problem with missing a spot somewhere when I grease and flour a pan. I highly recommend it and have converted many of my family and friends too. TNT

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

Dear Nancy,
There are some very special people in this world, people who are very much needed and loved by all the people they come into contact with because of how much they are willing to do for everyone, and how wonderful they are. You are one of those people. I sincerely hope you are feeling how much the members of Nancy's Kitchen love you and appreciate everything you do for us. You've never even met us, and you do so much for us. It's like having friends, or an extended family, everywhere- people you can turn to for help with all sorts of problems. You have made that possible, and I am forever grateful.

Helpful Hints

Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the corner tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount You also eat less sugar/calories per serving.

Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

I would like to have a recipe for a breakfast bar or muffin that I can reheat and eat for breakfast. I get so tired of cereal or eggs and toast in the morning. Does anyone have a good recipe I can make ahead and freeze or hold in the refrigerator until it is eaten up?
Thanks. Andrea in Boston

My sister-in-law used to make a wonderful vermicelli salad. I think she said she would let the noodles marinate in some kind of dressing and then would add olives, some mayo and not sure what else. Does anyone have a recipe for this?
Thanks. Mary A

I took the time today to try the deviled eggs in a bag. All I have to say….. Oh my gosh!!! Easy, Easy, Easy. I used a freezer bag (a thicker bag) to smash the yolks and add the mayo, mustard and spices. Just throw it away when your done. Whoever came up with this idea is a genius.
Thanks for all the hard work, Nancy

My husband is always telling me that his mother made the best tomato gravy. What is tomato gravy and what do put it on. My husband has said it so many times I am ready to put it on him but guess I should find out what it is first., LOL.

Easy Recipes
Here are some easy recipes for the member who wanted them.
Mary J

Crock Pot Mexican Meatloaf

2 lbs. hamburger meat
1 c. corn chips, crushed
1/3 c. taco sauce
2 tbsp. taco seasoning mix
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. grated cheese

Mix together and place in crockpot to cook.
Low: 6-8 hours.

Hamburger Hash
1 pound of hamburger
1 can of Veg-All mixed vegetables (undrained)
1 can Beef Vegetable soup (straight from can)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Brown hamburger in large fry pan. Do not add any oils or shortening. When browned, do not drain. Add the can of Veg-All vegetables, including liquid. Add the can of Beef Vegetable soup. Peel and slice thin as many potatoes as you wish, leaving room for juices to boil. I use a big family size fry pan and fill it up with potatoes. Then you just add enough water to cover potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste and cook for about 20 minutes after it starts to boil. The potato starch will thicken the juices to make a thin gravy. Serve with crackers or crusty bread and a toss salad. Of course, you may add as many fresh vegetables as you wish, but the idea here is to keep it simple and economical. It is a hearty stew-like dish that tastes really good on a cool day.

Crockpot Stroganoff

1-1/2 lbs. stew meat, cubed
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 1/4 oz.) can French onion soup

Put all ingredients into pot. Cook 5 to 6 hours - low heat.

V8 Meatloaf

1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 c. Quaker oats or bread crumbs
1 egg
1 c. V-8
1 sm. onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients except ground beef. Mix these and then add to ground beef. Press into an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour I topped mine with some chili sauce.

Hot Dog Casserole

1 package deluxe macaroni and cheese mix (with cheese sauce, not powder)
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1 lb. hot dogs, sliced
1 jar sliced mushrooms, drained

Cook macaroni and cheese according to package directions; add grated Cheddar and stir until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredients and pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Cover and bake at 350º for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with additional grated Cheddar and serve.

This 4th of July my 3 grandchildren are going to be with me. They are 8-10 and 11 years old. Can someone help me with some activities to make the 4th more meaningful. They have no clue why we celebrate the 4th of July. They just know we cook out on the grill and watch the fireworks. I would like some activities and preparation of food ideas to help them understand what the day is really about.
Thanks. Edith in PA

I am looking for a TNT oatmeal cookie recipe that, I believe, uses brown sugar instead of white sugar, and is the chewy type. It is rather thin and large. I would appreciate replies on my request. Thanks so much.

Hi Nancy:
This is a tip concerning cucumbers for anyone that has a hard time digesting the seeds.

Whenever I prepare cucumbers and onions with vinegar, first I slice the cukes in half lengthwise and use a small spoon to remove the seeds. Then I slice them thin. No more seeds floating around in the liquid.

Ya'll - I really need your help. We're having guests over for the 4th and I want to barbecue my chicken in the oven (or Crockpot) so that I can enjoy the company without getting so hot over the grill. Would you share your oven barbecued or Crockpot barbecued "tried and true" chicken recipes with me. I really need them to be tried and true because I won't have the option of "messing it all up". The chicken is the main dish. I'll be doing breasts, wings, legs, and thighs.
I'm counting on ya'll - Nina in Mississippi

I have a question about waffle recipes. I have a number of great sounding recipes but no waffle iron. Can you use the same recipes to make pancakes? Do you have to thin the batter or has anyone even tried this? I have so many machines and gadgets I hesitate to buy one more thing. Thanks for your help.

Also, I am a senior citizen who always loved to cook. Now, I cannot stand and do it like I used to. I know there are a lot of seniors on this wonderful list. I am wondering if any of them has some good tips for "easy" meals that I might be able to fix. I really miss my own cooking so very much.
Nancy, I love this list so much.

A friend told me that his mother always put "something" in canned creamed corn to make it taste better. I tried a little sugar and butter but that didn't help. Do you have any suggestions that I could try?

Hi everyone!
enjoy reading and using your recipes and letters.
Would anyone have recipe for a Peach Dessert which uses dry Jell-O and mini, Marshmallows. Have lost this TNT recipe and in hopes some one out there in Nancy Land has a copy. Thanks in advance
Paula in Oregon

We had a BBQ at work and one of our secretaries brought some " pepper cabbage" that her mother-in-law sends to her from the Amish community. Does anyone have a recipe for this? It had a slightly sweet and vinegar taste. Thanks in advance.

Nancy, I would love to have some recipes for caramel corn, especially the caramel corn that is sold at the county fairs. If anyone would have one and is willing to share it, I would really appreciate it. I've tried for years to duplicate the fairs corn, but haven't been successful. I sure hope someone has the magic recipe.

Thanks Nancy for all the hard work you put into these newsletters. I know I'm speaking for all of us cooks out here just how much we appreciate you.

Just wondering if anyone has a TNT recipe for Asian dressing? I think it includes sesame seed oil and something else. Thanks everyone.
