Thank you all for the great recipes. I have copied all of them sent in and will try them. Will give some feedback after I try the recipes.

I need recipes I can make in a crock pot and are Weight Watcher friendly. I like the kind of recipes that are a whole meal in the crock pot type.

Several years ago I copied down the recipe for The Best Spaghetti Sauce. It had pickles or pickle juice in it. Does anyone have that recipe where they can find it. My recipes tend to go in the big black hole, never to be seen again. I also need the recipe for Incredibly Delicious Banana Bread too. The names may not be exact but are close. Thanks.

When I was in high school home ec we made refrigerator bran muffins. I can't find the recipe anywhere and would like the make them again.

My husband's favorite baked bean dish is one that uses pork and beans and has pineapple in it. I think I used to make it in a crockpot but am not sure. Can any of you NancyLanders help me.

Years ago my mother made a pie that was called a Jeff Davis pie. It was similar to an chess pie. I would like that recipe if someone has it.

This is the best newsletter on the internet. Over that past 15 years I have printed out a lot of the recipes, and now I just wish I had enough time to make them all. After the age of 84 cooking is not something I do often since moving to a retirement home. The funny thing is if there is a recipe that sounds good I still print them out and share them with all my grandchildren. Nancy, just wanted to let know how reading the newsletter right after breakfast is the best part of my day, even after 15 years.

This is a wonderful and satisfying main dish. Plan ahead, as needs
to be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated overnight. I like
recipes like this, that I can make up the day before, as it leaves
me more time to do other preparations on the day I'll be serving a meal.

Little One doing what he does best...sleeping.

This was always a favorite at our house when our four children
were growing up, but hubby and I still enjoy it. I usually add
more cheese, lettuce and corn chips than the recipe calls for,
but don't actually measure those.

Hi Nancy,
Finally getting caught up with your wonderful newsletters. Jiffy mixes had long been a favorite of mine and I set up a new recipe folder to hold all that you posted. I hope if the group has any more, that they will send them in. Please post the temperature and baking time for the Jiffy Spice Cake recipe, my new letter was cut off after the word bake.

I will find out the temp and baking time and post it tomorrow.

Hot and Spicy Artichoke Dip Recipe

1 jar of marinated artichoke hearts
1 block of cream cheese
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
shredded cheese for garnish (optional)

The Directions:
Drain oil from artichokes and either chop the 'chokes by hand, food process or blend. I chose to blend.
Dump everything into a mini-crockpot, or insert a heat-safe dish into a large crock stone. Or quintuple the recipe so the whole thing is full. Your choice.
Heat on high for 2 hours or low for 3-4. Stir well and serve with bread, chips, or veggies. You can also add some shredded cheese to the top for an extra layer of gooeyness.

The Verdict:
Yum. I can imagine many, many variations on this---put in some fresh crab, double-up on the artichokes, put in some canned salmon add chopped green olives, etc.
