The original recipe made enough to serve 8 people, so I cut the recipe in half, and that's the way I'll post it here. You have to allow for chilling time, 4 hours, or even overnight, which is what I do, It's wonderful served cold also, and that is the way the grandchildren prefer it.

Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken Recipe

2-i/2 lbs. chicken (I use thighs & drumsticks)
1 cup buttermilk
Grated peel and juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tbsp. dried thyme, divided
1/2 tbsp. dried onion flakes, divided
1/2 tsp. garlic powder, divided
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 + 1/8 cups flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 cup cooking oil
1/8 cup butter, melted

In baking dish combine chicken with buttermilk, lemon peel and juice, 1/2 tsp. thyme, 1/2 tsp. onion flakes and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Combine bread crumbs, flour, salt & pepper with remaining thyme, onion flakes and garlic powder in bowl. Remove chicken from buttermilk mixture and discard mixture.
Coat each chicken piece in bread crumb mixture. Put chicken in large roasting pan in even layer.

Combine oil and melted butter; drizzle over chicken. Bake 1 hour at 375, turning over carefully half way through baking time.
Serves 4.

Only four ingredients in this mouth-watering meat dish. It is wonderful served over steamed rice, or cooked noodles.

Crock Pot Stroganoff Recipe

1 to 1-1/2 lbs. lean stew meat (I use 1-1/2 lbs. and cut up small)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can French onion soup
1 cup dairy sour cream

Combine the soups and meat in Crock Pot and cook on low for 8 hours (or 4 hours on high). Stir in the sour cream just before serving. Spoon over steamed rice, or cooked noodles.

NOTE: Can also bake, covered for 3 hours at 350 in a casserole dish.

This is for Jenna, who was asking for a recipe with similar ingredients. It calls for vanilla pudding, but am sure you could use white chocolate flavored pudding in place of vanilla. I sent this into Nancy's Newsletter quite sometime ago, and has always been a much-requested recipe among our friends and family.

Dreamsicle Salad Recipe

1 (3 oz.) pkg. orange Jello
1 pkg. (4 serving size) regular vanilla pudding mix
1 pkg. (4 serving size) tapioca pudding mix
1 can (11 oz.) mandarin orange, drained
1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 cups water

Bring water to a boil; add Jello and pudding mixes, stirring well. Bring to boil again and cook until thickened. Cool; add whipped
topping and drained oranges and blend well. Put into 9 inch square dish or pan. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

NOTE: I also add 1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained when I add the oranges.

Betty Crocker Free Samples Just for You 

Dear Nancy,
You do so much for us, & I want you to know that everyone who frequents your site, leaves better than when they arrived.

I was wondering if any of your people would have a recipe for soft pineapple cookies. My mom made these when I was a child. She has passed away and I can not find her recipe for these. Would appreciate this recipe very much. I really enjoy your newsletter and look forward to it all the time. Keep up the good work.
thank you, S.Z. PA

Hi Nancy, this is for Heather who in the Feb. 5th newsletter asked for a cooked chocolate frosting. This is IMHO the BEST cooked chocolate frosting ever. It's from my best friend's mom who sadly passed away last year.

Mae's Fudge Frosting Recipe

2 c. Granular sugar
2 Rounded T. Cocoa powder
dash salt
1 stick of butter
4 oz. evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla

Mix all ingredients (except) vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until well blended and butter is melted. Continue cooking while stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full boil. Then cook for "exactly" 2 minutes, still stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Then continue to stir quickly until frosting is cooled down and just thick enough to spread on cake. You MUST spread on cake as soon as it reaches that spreadability stage, because if you wait to long, it will firm up and won't be able to spread it. Everyone who tastes this frosting falls in love with it and wants the recipe. It's a little bit of work, but so worth it! I make a yellow cake in a 9x13 pan and then frost it with this frosting. ENJOY!!!

For Mary A and others, who asked about making buttermilk, you can buy powdered buttermilk. I far prefer it over adding lemon juice or vinegar to milk, as I believe the taste is far superior in the final dish you are making. The powder keeps for a long time and is so easy to use. large grocery stores often sell it and you can also buy it at The Prepared Pantry, as well as Amazon. You can also purchase powdered sour cream for baking.

Hard Shiny Icing Recipe
this may be the recipe Donna requested in the 2/4 newsletter. This icing dries hard and shiny and the colors stay bright. Choose as many different food colorings as you desire.
Robbie IN

Hard Shiny Icing

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 teaspoons milk

2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
assorted food coloring

In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.

Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. Dip cookies, or paint them with a brush.

This is in response to Becky who wanted instructions for Mexican Lasagna.

I really wish I could send you a photo, but that’s not possible so I’ll try to clarify. I’m assuming you understand the first part, browning and heating the ingredients. Just layer tortillas over the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 x 2 pan, pour in the mixture and cover with a layer of tortillas. Pour the cottage cheese mixture over the top.

The “pretty” part is after baking and removing the pan, you need to make stripes of the other ingredients running from one corner diagonally to the other corner (lengthwise) of the pan. The middle stripe is shredded cheddar. On each side of the cheese, put another stripe (about 2 in) of the shredded lettuce. On each side of the lettuce, put another stripe of chopped tomatoes. On each side of each tomato stripe, put a stripe of black olives, and finally on each side of the black olive stripe, put chopped green onions ( you should now be into the opposite corners of the pan) Amounts are optional. I sometimes need more tomatoes or olives, etc. to complete the effect. It ends up looking really attractive! Just remember that the stripes are diagonal from one corner diagonally to the opposite corner!
Hope this works!

I went to Petsmart today to get Ditto and Little One an identification tags with our new phone number. I first went to the cat toy section and came home with three new toys. The kitties were impressed with toys and have been busy all playing with them all evening. Next time I will try to remember to get the identification tags first.

Light Waldorf Salad Recipe

3 cups coarsely chopped apples, about 3 medium apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup grapes, cut in half
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup mayonnaise, or to taste
1/3 heavy cream, whipped
salad greens or lettuce
Toss the apples with the lemon juice, sugar, and salt to coat. (The lemon juice will help keep the apples from turning dark. If you were making a Waldorf salad with mayonnaise only, the acidity in the mayonnaise would do the trick.) Add the grapes, celery, and nuts. Fold the mayonnaise into the whipped cream. Fold the apple mixture into the whipped cream mixture. Serve on greens.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Thank you Judy in Alaska for your feedback on the Black Forest Pizza recipe. I plan on taking it for potluck to our next election and just thought the people would like bars better. Newsletter looks good today. Nancy, I love all your stories about your kitties lol. Mine are also so entertaining. It's amazing what they can learn how to do. When my big male (27 pds now) wants a treat from the treat jar he sit's by me and pats my leg, knowing then he will get a treat or two. Had him at the vet and they said he is fine for his weight, just a big kitty (part Mane Coon). Everyone thinks he must eat all the time but he doesn't eat any more than my 2 small females.

I'm always amazed that all three of my cat's are deathly afraid of thunder and lightening in the summer - when it storms they are all in bed with me and just crying lol.

Someone requested an icing that was smooth and shiny and dried hard for cookies. I believe what she is looking for is Royal Icing. It is made with lots of egg whites or Meringue Powder usually found in grocery stores. It is also used for decorating cakes. You will find meringue powder easier to use.
Abby in Atlanta

Royal Icing Recipe

1 box confectioners' sugar (1 pound)
5 tablespoons meringue powder or 2 large egg whites

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar and meringue powder. Mixing on low speed, add a scant 1/2 cup water. For a thinner consistency, usually used for flooding, add more water. A thicker consistency is generally used for outlining and adding details. Mix until icing holds a ribbonlike trail on the surface of the mixture for 5 seconds when you raise the paddle.

Is it spring yet?
Oh good, time for more cookies!
After seeing so many questions about cookies, I thought it might help to read this article. Some time ago I found an article clarifying how and why cookies are chewy or soft or thin or crispy or cakey. The article is called "The science behind the perfect cookie".

Here is the URL

I was very glad to see this article, especially as we know, over time, the quality of the ingredients we use changes, and the ovens that we
use change.

This is for Betty who wants to make a sugar free yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I have been Diabetic for 14 years. I denied myself any sweets for 9 of those years. I tried making bake goods with Splenda, but my cakes never turned out as moist as I would like them. Splenda recommends using the sugar blend for baked goods, but I think of sugar as poison in my body. I had good results with things like puddings or sauces using Splenda. You can add some moisture by using applesauce or yogurt in the mix (usually in place of the oil). On my 9th year, I discovered a new product by Pillsbury. I find the yellow and chocolate cakes to be really good and moist. Pillsbury also makes sugar free frostings. The chocolate is really good, but the white seems too sweet for my liking. You can use Cool Whip with sugar free chocolate instant pudding for the frosting, but then you need to keep it refrigerated. Cool Whip with vanilla instant pudding and crushed pineapple is really good, but again, you must refrigerate. Even if the cake is totally sugar free, you still have to count the carbs. One piece of cake that is a 2 inch by 2 inch square is one carb. I hope this helps some.

Finally I am back online again. Several evenings ago an airplane hit a TV tower here in Lubbock. The airplane hit the guy wire to the TV tower and some electric transformers. My computer was on at the time. There was a power surge and my computer was trashed. It was under warranty. I took it in, go a new one and I am back online. Still dislike Windows 8.1. It took several days to get back online with the computer. I had forgotten how much trouble it is to setup a new computer.

What company makes the toasted coconut instant pudding?

This information is for Betty who is looking for a Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting for her diabetic friend. For your information Pillsbury makes a No Sugar Added Yellow Cake Mix and a No Sugar Added Chocolate Frosting Mix. Both of these items are much lower carbs than regular cake mix. I have purchased these items at Walmart, Kroger and Publix. You have to look by the Pillsbury products. Sometimes on top of them, sometimes at the bottom. I hope this helps.

I used to have a pound cake recipe that used non-dairy creamer instead of milk. I lost this recipe in a house fire . Can you help me.
thanks, Rhonda

First off, you do an amazing job Nancy! We appreciate your work so much. I am having a leak problem in my kitchen, and my stove-top is currently out of commission. I am looking for meal ideas for myself, my husband, and our three-year old son, which can be prepared solely in the microwave and toaster-oven/broiler (with a 10"x7" baking sheet). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, as it may take some time to repair all the damage in the kitchen to get back in there and have access to the stove again. Thanks for your help!

Hello there, I was wondering if anyone had a nice fruity Boston Bread, one that is steamed.
Thanks, Sue.

For Heather, the fortunate gal with all the eggs.

For Laura. Enjoy that bread machine, couldn't get along without mine.

Irish Dill Rolls Recipe

Process on Regular Dough cycle:
1/2 c. water
2 T. canola oil (or 2 T. Crisco, depending on how healthy you feel like being)
1 egg
2 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. dried dillweed
2 1/3 c. bread flour
1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast

Butter 12 muffin cups. On floured board or with floured hands, form finished dough into 12 balls & place in greased cups. Snip small crosses on tops if you like, easy using scissors, cover with wax paper and raise till almost double, about 20 - 30 minutes or more. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350º for 12 - 15 minutes, or till light brown. Cool on a rack; serve warm; if must re-heat, do in foil in oven, not microwave; they get tough, especially if you used oil instead of solid shortening. Otherwise a sweet, tender little dinner roll.

Southern Artichoke Rolls and Islamorada variation

OMITTING THE DILL, make Irish Rolls above. Meanwhile mix well:
1 14 oz. can water-packed artichokes, drained & chopped
1/2 c. EACH sour cream and Hellman's Mayonnaise
4 heaping T. grated fresh parmesan cheese, a generous 1/4 cup
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. minced scallions
and chill.

At the end of Regular Dough cycle, form 10 to 12 ovals; push a "trough" lengthwise in each one, using the handle of a wooden spoon, or a finger. Raise on parchment as above, and bake till barely browned. Pile artichoke filling in the troughs to serve, warm or at room temperature.

For Islamorada style: after filling the rolls, slide them back into the oven, baking till everything is golden brown. Good both ways ! DO NOT MICROWAVE!
In a hurry after filling them? Broil on the middle oven rack for about 6 minutes, watching from 4 minutes.

Nancy-I will add my praise along with everyone else's on your newsletter. I thoroughly enjoy it. Does anyone have a recipe or recipes either for brownies or cookies in which you put part of the ingredients in a jar and give the recipe and they add the rest-like the Crisco or butter and eggs. These you give for gifts or sell at sales.
thanks Shirley

I have a very small ice cream maker, maybe a pint size, and have lost the instruction/recipe booklet. This is the type of maker that is self contained (no ice, no rock salt) and placed in a deep freezer for 24 hours, then the ingredients are poured into the canister and then turned on and it spins around until frozen. Does anyone in Nancyland have recipes for the ice cream?
Thank you, Mary

In the 2/5 newsletter, Terri wanted a recipe for cornstarch pudding. I have one each for vanilla & chocolate that I inherited from my grandmother.

Vanilla Cornstarch Pudding Recipe

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
2-3/4 cup milk
2 Tbl butter
1 tsp vanilla

Combine sugar, cornstarch & salt in a medium saucepan. Whisking constantly, gradually add the milk, bring to a boil over medium heat & boil 1 minute.

Remove from heat & stir in butter & vanilla. Pour into a single large bowl or individual pudding dishes, cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate.

Chocolate Pudding

Exactly the same as Vanilla Pudding with the addition of 3 Tbl unsweetened cocoa to the sugar, cornstarch & salt mixture.

Does anyone have a good icebox pie recipe? Nancy, I love reading your newsletter. It's great !!!
Linda S

Nancy your newsletter is great. Keep up the good work. I have a request. Was in Penna. and had a cookie made in a mini muffin pan. It was chocolate chip with a brownie filling with frosting on top. It was awesome.

Hope one of your readers can help me.

The other day someone sent in a recipe for Johnny Marzetti and said they didn’t know where the name came from. It came from a restaurant, “Marzetti’s”, in Columbus, Ohio and was developed by Teresa Marzetti for her brother-in-law, Johnny. She died in 1972. In Texas, it is known as Johnny Marzotti and is usually served with a 3 bean casserole.

Cindy's apple salad request sounds like a classic Waldorf salad. I make mine as follows:

3 apples, best if a good eating variety like Fuji ot Honeycrisp. Mixing yellow and red skins add eye appeal.

Dice the cored apples, but do not peel. Add in 1/2 cup celery diced or thinly sliced, 1/2 cup raisins, and 1/2 cup walnuts.

Mix a dressing of 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. sugar. May need a bit more if apples are tart 1 tsp. lemon juice to keep apples from darkening and a sprinkle of salt. Pour over fruit and chill.

I sometimes add some crushed pineapple which is not included in the original recipe. When my kids were little they also liked a handful of mini-marshmallows included. Fix it how you like it and peanuts as a sub for walnuts taste good too. Nana in SE Ohio

For Lynda who wanted a Shaker potato soup recipe. I found several by typing in the name in a search engine. It seems they included leeks so that may be what she detected as an herb flavor.

This is the original recipe from Argo brand cornstarch that was printed on the box. I have seen other versions that call for eggs , but this is the simple version as it was introduced.

Cornstarch Pudding Recipe

In a medium saucepan combine :
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup Argo or alternate brand of cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt

Gradually stir in 2 3/4 cups milk and whisk over medium heat to a boil and boil one minute.

Remove from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Let cool to thicken.

Hi Nancy,
Company is coming from Holland and they will only be here for two days. I am wondering if you have any salad recipes that I can make ahead (besides bean salad). I don't want to spend all my time cooking and hope to have nearly everything ready to stick on the BBQ
or in the oven I hope someone can help.
Regards from Casey

For Rachel in Israel

Bisquick Substitute
There are many versions of Bisquick mix substitutes online but this is the basic premise.

2 cups flour (6 cups)
3 teaspoons baking powder ( 3 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon salt ( 1 tablespoon)
2 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening or butter (1 cup)

Sift the dry ingredients together. and cut in the shortening till you have coarse crumbs. Use as recipe calls for as volume.

If you want a larger amount so you can store it as a box would be, use the amount in parentheses and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 months.
