Thanks to Diane WI for sharing the
crockingirls.com site. I use the
crockpot a lot in the spring and summer. It is nice to have a meal already to
eat when we are done with our work and fun outdoors, plus it cuts down on the
heat in the kitchen, which is wonderful when you are trying to keep the house
cool. during Lent there were requests for meatless crockpot recipes and this
site has many from which to choose. I know it is far too late for this year, but
it would be a great resource for next time you need seafood or meatless crockpot
I have some thank you letters to send out.
Thank you for all that donated toward the fund to keep the site online.
The site will stay online for a while longer.
I will try and get out the thank you notes by this weekend.

It has been a week or so since I posted anything to the newsletter. Major
outdoor projects, combined with significant computer problems have interfered
with my being involved in the newsletter. Plus, when I did have time to use the
computer severe weather was in our area and like Nancy, I don't use the computer
when lightening is near us.
For the woman, who had
problems with the lemon meringue pie recipe I shared, I
greatly regret you had a bad experience. I have made the pie many times without
problems, but my pie is always eaten the same day it is made. The problem you
experienced is often called a weeping meringue. Here are some tips for
preventing that from occurring. One difference from this list and my recipe is
that many of the "experts" say the meringue should be put on the pie while the
filling is hot. My recipe says to do it once the filling has cooled. People seem
to be divided on this issue. I would be eager to learn what the other readers
do. I hope these tips help and I regret I could not respond sooner.
These five tips should help keep the meringue on your
pies from weeping:
• Make meringue pies on dry,
• Be careful not to overbake your meringue—doing so
causes the egg whites to shrink and squeeze out small tears of moisture. Always
check your pie at the minimum baking time.
• Undissolved sugar in the egg
whites may cause weeping. To make sure the sugar is adequately dissolved, mix
the egg whites and sugar at low speed until the mixture feels perfectly smooth
with no graininess when you rub a little bit between your thumb and fingers. You
might also try using superfine sugar—it dissolves much more quickly than regular
• Be sure to prepare meringue before preparing the pie filling
so it is ready to spread while the filling is still hot. The filling’s residual
heat will “cook” the meringue onto the filling and make it much less likely to
leak or shrink.
• Make sure to seal the meringue completely to the edge so it
touches the crust.

The other day when I was searching for my avocado dip for corn chips I could not
find it. I sort of guessed on each of the amounts but it came out really good.
It was better than the recipe I originally had. Here is what I made.
Terri's Avocado Dip Recipe
2 avocados, cut up
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tomato, finely chopped
1/4 c. picante
sauce (I used medium)
Mash avocados and mix in onions, lemon juice,
salt, pepper and picante sauce until creamy. Stir in tomato. Cover and
refrigerate at least one hour. (I use a food processor or blender. Use picante
sauce until the right consistency for dip is achieved.)
Serve with corn

Terri's Avocado Enchiladas Recipe
8 flour tortillas (room temperature) (I prefer large corn tortillas)
small avocados, sliced
2 c. grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 can green
enchilada sauce (I prefer Hatch brand)
1/3 c. sliced black olives
Place slices of avocados in center of tortillas and sprinkle with cheese. Roll
up tortillas and place in pan sprayed with Pam. Pour green sauce over tortillas.
Sprinkle with olives and remaining cheese. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes.
Note: I wrap the tortillas in paper towels. I then sprinkle a little water on
the paper towels. Heat them for about 20 seconds to steam them. It makes them
easier to work with when making the enchiladas.

I need recipes for
vegetable and fruit salads for this summer.
I need them to be an all in one meal. They don't need to have meat in them
but do need to be filling and crunchy. Can any of you NancyLanders out
there help me. The recipes need to be for one or two people.
I am single and love pork chops. My favorite way of cooking them is in a
small crockpot, add a can of Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup and a couple of pork
chops. Put them on low all day . Come home from work and eat. It tastes so
good but I really need other ideas to use with pork chops. Does anyone have some
easy recipes for pork chops cooked in a small
