The e Cookbook Library is one of the best bargains on the internet. They have many downloadable pdf recipe books. It currently is on sale for $17.97 for a lifetime membership. The library is full of wonderful cookbooks and many recipe books have been added over the past 10 years. I especially like the cookbooks God Bless Texas, The Best of Amish Cooking and Know Your Ingredients.

This makes a great present as a subscription or on CD. Last year many of the NancyLanders used it as a stocking stuffer and others used it as a wedding present.

Welcome back.

Hello. Nancy and all of your readers hope some one can help me find a recipe for a salad that the Ex. Inn in Vincennes Indiana had on their salad bar in the sixty or seventy it had coconut, pineapple and maybe angel food cake was held together with something Knox  gelatin and cover in pink cool whip or whip cream with coconut on the out side. It was in a dome shape. It was so good could have been used for a dessert. I have asked and look on line and in lots of cook book. Hope some one will know what I am talking about.
Thanks Sharon in cold southern Indiana.

Nancy and all I know I said that I would send in recipes and answer questions but we have been busy going through 30 plus years in this house. We had no idea how much junk we had collected over the years. Now we have very old furniture that we need to get rid of. One piece is a love seat, matching rocking chair and another rocking chair. Yes I like rocking chairs. Then we also have a piano that we hope to sell for $100 that was made, we think, around 1930's. Will after all this I have a recipe for making quick chocolate cookies that I saw on Food Network that I have changed. When I first made the original recipe it was way to oily for our taste, didn't like the taste of the toffee cappuccino mix in the cookie either and didn't like the Heath Toffee Bits in it. The following is what I come up with.

Susie's Chocolate Cookies Recipe

1 2 layer Devil's food cake mix
1/4 to 1/3 cup of oil, don't use olive oil
2 eggs
1 cup of chocolate chips or the white chocolate chips
3 tablespoons of fresh made coffee

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and the fresh made coffee. Stir to make sure mixed well. Drop dough by teaspoons on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. When cookies are done remove from the oven and let cool a couple of minutes on the sheet then remove to the cooling rack until cool.

I will have a couple of recipes tomorrow that I will send in.
Everyone have a great day. Nancy and 4 legged associates take care, stay safe, and comfortable.

3 eggs - separated
3/4 cup sugar - divided
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
8 ounces (1 tub) whipped topping

In a medium bowl, mix the crumbs, nuts, sugar and pumpkin pie spice together. Stir in melted butter until all is moistened. Press into an ungreased 13x9 inch baking dish.

The recipe for Linda's Pumpkin Pie - No Bake Recipe is missing some instructions in the recipe that appeared in the November 14, 2014 newsletter of Nancy's Kitchen. In the list of ingredients she has 1/2 cup of milk and 2/3 cup of milk; but in the instructions she only mentions the 2/3 cup of milk what about the 1/2 cup of milk? I would love to make this for Thanksgiving.

Un stuffed Cabbage Recipe

1-1/2 pounds ground round or other very lean ground beef (750 g)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic (5 ml) or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper (2 ml)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (2 ml)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (2 ml)
1 teaspoon salt (5 ml)8 ounce can tomato sauce (250 g)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (30 ml)

Start the ground beef cooking in a heavy skillet over high heat spread it out to cover the bottom of the pan so it cooks quicker.
While the ground beef is starting to brown, chop your onion and crush your garlic. Plunk them in the pan with the ground beef, and stir the beef, using a spatula to turn it over and break it up so that it cooks evenly. Cover the pan and let it continue cooking, while you:

Chop your cabbage coarsely. Stir this into the browning beef and onion/garlic mixture, a bit at a time it will come close to overwhelming your skillet, unless yours is bigger than mine. Again, take care to turn everything over to keep it cooking evenly. Re-cover the pan.

Open your can of tomato sauce. Uncover the pan and stir your meat/cabbage mixture yet again! When the cabbage is starting to wilt, stir in the tomato sauce, lemon juice, and seasonings. Re-cover, and let the whole thing simmer for 5 minutes, then serve.

I accidentally omitted one step in the recipe for the Cranberry Banana Bread that I put in the newsletter on Friday. I notice I didn't say when to add the cranberry-sugar mixture. I add that to the batter just before I add the nuts. I mix this up by hand, but an electric mixer could probably be used. I made this today again, and the house smells so fragrant!
