A lot of recipes call for 12 ozs. of pasta. I only see 16 oz. pkgs. Does someone know how to measure to come up with the 12 ozs. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I used to have a recipe for a fruit dip for apple slices and other fruit. It was sweet in taste. Don't remember any of the ingredients but we loved the taste of it. This isn't much information to go on but can someone help me with this recipe?

I am sending this recipe. I know Rosie requested one for ketchup and I also have one of those but can't locate it.
Will keep looking. Mary Jo in MD

This is for FA who was asking about cobbler in a jar. Try looking for PIE in a jar on the web. That is where we got recipes.
Sandra from Oregon.

Dee wanted apple cobbler recipes for the crockpot in the 10/13 newsletter. Neither of these recipes are probably the one she lost, but thought I would share since so many enjoy using their crockpots/slow cookers. In the second recipe you can omit the peanut butter. I have not made the third recipes since cake mixes have become a little smaller, but don't think the reduced size would alter the recipe significantly.

Crockpot Apple Dumplings Recipe

2 Packages crescent rolls
2-3 apples, peeled and diced (I used whatever apples I had on hand)
2/3 Cups sugar
1/3 Cup brown sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 Cup apple juice - can substitute orange juice or water
cinnamon sugar for topping

Spray slow cooker with non stick cooking spray. Roll out crescent rolls into individual triangles.

Place a heaping amount of apples on the crescent roll and roll up, place in the slow cooker. Repeat until all crescent rolls are used.

In a small saucepan combine both sugars, butter and orange juice. Stir until melted and sugar is dissolved. Pour over the crescent rolls. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of dumplings.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.

My husband loves chicken tortilla soup like they have at El Chico's. Does anyone tried and tested have a similar in taste to El Chico's.
Thank you in advance, Yolanda

I have successfully steamed a lobster. some Chinese pork sausage, and a variety of veggies in my steamer-fondue attachment ($30). I burnt some peppers by not tempering the heat. But I love it, knowing I will be using less energy. It's a work in progress. It's great for sautéing, too. I bought one of my kids a larger fry pan.

I am helping my son's class with a unit on the Civil War. I thought I might take some dishes with recipes from that time period. Can anyone help me with some TNT recipes from the Civil War times.
Thanks, Wendy

I'm looking for a drop cookie recipe from the late 50's or early 60's, I remember it as being lemon flavored, it was a sponge type cookie, tasted like little sponge cakes, it was on the back of the Arm & Hammer Baking Soda box. Thanks for any help!

I'm looking for the no-bake cookie recipe that uses soda crackers and peanut butter. I thought it was in a recent news letter, but couldn't find it when I was looking for it. Does anyone have it. It's an oldie from my childhood many years ago.
thanks, Barb, Kansas
