We love anything pistachio and we think this cake is a real winner. You could use any flavor of pudding, but we like it with the pistachio.

Pistachio Inside Outside Cake Recipe

1 yellow cake mix (without the pudding in)
1 pkg. (4 serving size) pistachio instant pudding
3 eggs
1 cup club soda (or 7 Up)
1 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Blend all ingredients in electric mixer bowl until moistened and then beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter into greased and floured 10 inch bundt pan.

Bake at 350 for about 55 to 60 minutes, or until tests done. Remove from pan after 15 minutes and cool thoroughly on wire rack. When cold, split into 3 layers, Spread filling between layers
and spoon remainder into the center. Can garnish with more chopped nuts, if desired. Chill before serving.

For filling:
1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 envelope Dream Whip
1 pkg. (4 serving size) pistachio instant pudding

Whip until thickened, about 5 minutes.

NOTE: We like lots of filling, so I double the amounts. I think you could use frozen whipped topping in place of the Dream Whip. Beat pudding and milk together for 1 to 2 minutes and fold in whipped topping.

In the 9/16 newsletter Mary wanted information on using a dehydrator, as well as recipes. She can check this site to see if any of the manuals listed are for the dehydrator that she found at a garage sale. Even if they don't have her exact model, I think the information, tips and recipes would still be helpful. this is a great site if you are looking for any small appliance manuals, such as for rice cookers, crockpots, fryers, etc.

In the 9/16 newsletter Lucy wanted to know if she could safely freeze homemade grape juice. Yes you can. It can be frozen for 1 year. Make sure your containers remain upright during freezing, so there is no chance of spillage. Ziplock freezer bags can be use, but many suggest double bagging the juice. This will prevent spilling if the seal does not completely work.

Here is my recipe for roasted tomato soup. Roasting the tomatoes give it an extra flavor and texture that is definitely worth the time and energy. If you do not have yellow tomatoes, you can use red ones.

Roasted Yellow Tomato Soup Recipe

3-4 large, ripe, yellow tomatoes, sliced and seeded
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
salt and black pepper to taste
1 large stalk celery, sliced
1 large carrot, diced
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 large cloves garlic, skins removed and smashed
3 c Chicken Stock
1 bay leaf
2 T unsalted butter
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup half and half
French baguette and additional olive oil

Preheat oven to 450. Spread the tomatoes onto a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with 2 T of the olive oil. Roast until sizzling and slightly caramelized, about 15 min.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat remaining 2 T olive oil over medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, onion, and garlic, and cook until softened. Add the roasted tomatoes, the tomato juices from the pan, chicken broth, bay leaf, and butter. Simmer gently 15-20 min.

Add the basil and cream. Remove the bay leaf. Puree with a hand held immersion blender or in a food processor until smooth. Taste and adjust for seasoning with additional salt and pepper. Serve with French bread slices, toasted lightly in olive oil. Serves 4 or your favorite crackers.

For the Chocolate Batter:
In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, combine egg, vanilla extract, and canola oil. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until just combined, taking care not to overmix. Transfer batter to a plastic bag and seal closed. Grease a donut pan and snip the corners of both bags of batter. Starting with one batter, pipe three separate sections into each donut space, leaving equal spaces between. Fill in the remaining three spaces with the other batter. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until a tester inserted into a donut comes out clean. Let donuts cool to room temperature on a wire rack, and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. It is very very hard to eat just one they are so good!
