For Elaine:

Cream Cheese Mint Candy

4 ounces cream cheese softened ( just halve the standard 8 ounce bar)

1 pound box of powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract. This is the one similar to vanilla. Do not confuse with the tiny bottles of peppermint oil.

You can use the oil but it would only take 2 drops.

Mix well to a dough similar to play dough. Pinch off a ball and roll it into a rope.

Slice off with a knife or pizza cutter to small bite size. If you like more of a patty make the pieces a little larger and flatten with a fork.

Refrigerate 90 minutes in fridge or let dry overnight on counter. Flipping them at the halfway point helps them dry. I use parchment paper under them.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge. They will also freeze.

Bill in Alb, I am right there with you. I have, among many other things, Sjogren's Syndrome, which dries all my body, but especially my mouth and eyes. A quick remedy for me is chewing sugar-free gum. Helps for quite a while, especially if you get a really long lasting flavored one.

I know you said that you have tried all medicines, but with a little research I found one my doctor did not know about. The non-generic name is Evoxac and, for me, it is a miracle worker. The directions say to take three a day, but if I do that, I drool, especially at night. Have you tried this drug? If not, print out the explanation on or and take it to your doctor. It couldn't hurt and it was a life saver for me.

Jody's Fish Cakes Recipe

My husband was a bass fisherman and after a fish fry I always had a lot of leftover cooked fish. This is my recipe for using it up.

3 or more cups of leftover fried bass
2 slices firm bread
2 eggs
1/4 cup minced onion
2 tsps. Worcestershire sauce
2/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. wet mustard
2 Tbsps. Mayonnaise
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 to 4 small boiled potatoes
1/4 can tomato soup
1/4 tsp. white pepper

Mince fish. (I use a mini-food processor.) Put into large bowl. Mince, separately the bread, potatoes and onion and add to bowl. Add all the rest. Mix well by hand and make small cakes. Fry in a mixture of margarine and Crisco. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce poured over.

Remainder of soup
1/3 can water
Juice of ½ lemon
1 Tblsp. Butter
Heat, stirring, over low heat in small, heavy sauce pan until ready to boil.

And 2 fish recipes I make frequently as my husband love it.

Halibut Supreme Recipe

This topping can enhance any thick, ¾” to 1”, fish fillet. I frequently use it on cod. The original came from “” but I have added to it.

A fillet of halibut about 1” thick
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tblsps. Flour
1 tsp. dry dill weed
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbls. or scraped onion
5 dashes red Tabasco
Preheat oven to 350 to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a medium baking pan.

In a bowl, mix all ingredients except fish and paprika.
In baking pan, arrange fish fillet(s) and pile the cheese mixture on top thickly.

Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for another 10 minutes. Test to see if fish flakes easily when poked with a fork. If not, bake another 5 minutes. (I find most fish cooks in about 18 minutes.)

Ditto and Little One got a special Easter treat in their food dishes. I bought each one a shrimp then cut it up in little pieces. They both love shrimp but don't get a shrimp often.

When I lived in Amarillo and had my cat Siggy, got 1 shrimp daily. One week I was out of town and Elaine took care of Siggy. When I came back Siggy was a happy cat and didn't miss me much at all. Elaine had come over everyday and shared her lunch with him. She also feed him his shrimp while she was there. After I returned I looked in the refrigerator and couldn't find my butter. I asked Elaine about it and she told me she used it for Siggy's shrimp and added shrimp just didn't taste good without it being cooked in butter, LOL.

I knew then that Siggy was well taken care of and she was going to be my kitty sitter while I lived in Amarillo. Siggy was always happy and spoiled after I came back from being gone. Elaine was a special person and Siggy loved her a lot.

WE celebrated our family Easter last weekend to accommodate everyone's commitments. this was a huge hit with no leftovers. Thanks to Judy MI for sharing it several years ago. It took slightly less time in my crockpot.

In regard to Robbie in Ind.'s Never Fail Meringue, I have used that recipe for years and yes, it is the best! It comes out standing tall, browns beautifully, and texture is good. Excellent recipe.
