KNEW I could count on my family of Nancylanders to come to the rescue and provide me with some really good TNT Crab Stuffing recipes. I just didn't know that it would happen so soon. I thank each and every one of you who posted recipes in response to my request. And I would be remiss if I didn't thank all of you for your most kind words of concern and encouragement with regard to my cancer ordeal. As I said I am so thankful that the diagnosis is "Cancer Free" as esophageal cancer is a very aggressive type of cancer which, if not caught early, can result in a serious if not life threatening result. For the person who suggested a card shower please know that I sincerely appreciate your thoughtful idea but it is really not necessary. Just knowing that I have my Nancyland family in my corner is all that I could hope for and the comments positively support that you are behind me. My battle at the present is in regaining my strength and stamina which was very much diminished through all of the tests and procedures that were performed.

So it's now getting back to a high calorie diet and being able to digest it. Thanks again for the recipes (too many to thank you individually) which I will be testing soon and for your expressions of concern. Know that I'm on a high road to recovery and that I couldn't ask for anything more at this time.

In Feb. 21 NL it was mentioned that Myron was looking for a Pea Salad recipe. I missed seeing that request, but am sending a delicious Pea Salad recipe. There is no name attached, so I don't know "from whence it came." Anyway, it's super good; hope you enjoy it Myron. Remembering you in my prayers for total good health soon.

Sour Cream Pea Salad for Two
Makes 2 servings
1 small can LeSueur Peas, drained

(not sure what is meant by "small can". We couldn't find a smaller can than 15 oz., so that is what I used).

1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup celery
1/4 cup green onions (with tops) sliced thin
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1/4 cup sour cream

Combine all ingredients. Best when refrigerated for several hours. Serve on bed of lettuce.
Note: I just eat it as is. BTW, if this serves just two, they are very large servings.

There used to be a small can of LeSueur peas. It was about a 7 ounce can. I looked and they evidently don't have that size any more. You could do one of two things. Use 1/2 of a 11 ounce can or double the ingredients for a 11 ounce can.
If you used 1/2 of the can and the current amounts of the ingredients it would serve 2.


If you have any recipes, tips and questions to share NancyLand family of recipe members would love for you to share. Send your favorite tried and tested recipes to    or

There are other recipes which simply add parsley to rice or add green coloring for St. Patrick’s Day. Was it Palapa Restaurant where you had the green rice? If so, you are probably thinking of this Mexican recipe.=

Chris' Tempura Batter Recipe

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 pinches baking soda
4 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold water

Wash chicken breasts. Cut crosswise 3 or 4 times to make small pieces. (I kept the meat pieces whole). Sprinkle with salt, garlic powder, 5-spice powder (use sparingly)- I only sprinkled with paprika. Make batter by combining flour with baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, salt and cold water. Whip with wire whisk to mix well. Heat oil in wok to 400 degrees F. Dip the chicken pieces in flour then in batter. Deep fry until golden brown. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

**Batter is also good for coating mushrooms, cauliflower, green beans etc., to be deep fried by same method. ***This is a tempura batter.

This would be a good option for those observing no meat on Fridays during Lent. It can be assembled the night before and refrigerated until ready to bake. I also join in wishing Myron and all the other readers facing medical challenges a speedy recovery. Our prayers are with you and your families s in all that they are facing. M

To Barb from San Diego:
Yes, I still use (what's left of my short supply of Tones Steak Dust) on steaks and roasts. Best ever seasoning for beef BUT like you I can no longer find it at Sam's Club where I was always able to purchase it. So I must ask you, is the Tones Beef Signature Seasoning that you purchased on Amazon the same as what we know as Steak Dust? I need your reply before I make the jump to make the purchase on-line as you did. And any other Nancylander who has any information of what Barb and I know to be "Steak Dust", an all around GREAT seasoning for steaks, please send in your responses to this query as well.
