Info about tempura, steak dust seasoning, need salad recipes for 60-70 people.

All bold links in today's newsletter have been checked and are safe to click.

I am needing several salad recipes that make for 60-70 people. They can be fruit or any other type of salad that would work for a ladies luncheon.

In response to the question by Athena in the 2/22 Newsletter - I am definitely interested in ALL recipes that I might transform into a recipe for Crab Stuffing to be put into scallop or other similar size sea shells and baked. If the recipe has bread crumbs or crushed saltines or butter crackers please post them and I will tweak the ingredients to what I think would make a good tasting stuffing. Even if imitation or canned crab are ingredients in the recipe I'm still interested. Thank you for asking and I hope this will prompt other Nancylanders to think of a hidden or buried recipe from the past that might be just the Worlds Greatest Crab Stuffing recipe.

Nancy, I just wanted to send Myron prayers to regain his strength and stamina soon. So glad to see him back on here.

Just a note in reference to tempura - when I lived in Biloxi, MS we were able to get huge, fresh shrimp. Always on the search for easy recipes, I discovered that you can buy tempura mix in a box and then cook the shrimp in oil following the instruction book that came with an electric tempura pot. Of course, you would clean the shrimp first and make little small slits in each shrimp to cut the muscle. Easy!

This is a really good alternative to macaroni and cheese, and is one my family really enjoys.

Corny Macaroni and Cheese Bake Recipe

1 can (15 oz.) whole kernel corn, undrained (or 10 oz. frozen, thawed)
1 cup elbow macaroni (not cooked)
8 oz. Velveeta cheese, cubed
Pepper, to taste
1/2 cup butter, cut in pieces

Combine all ingredients and put in buttered casserole dish. Cover. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and stir; continue baking for 30 more minutes uncovered.

Carol in sunny FL. was asking for recipe using self-rising flour, which I don't often use, but this delicious cake calls for it. My hubby particularly likes this cake, because there is no need for frosting, and he likes cakes and cookies plain.

Whipping Cream Cake Recipe

2 cups self-rising flour
1-1/2 cups (scant) sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups whipping cream

Whip cream until thick with electric mixer; beat in eggs. Add sugar and vanilla and mix well. Add flour and continue to beat until well combined. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean. This cake does not need a frosting.

NOTE: It can be made with 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/4 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. baking powder in place of the self-rising flour.

It was real good to hear from Mr. Myron Drinkwater, but was very sorry to know what he has gone through. It was wonderful to know he is doing so well now, and hope he continues to do so. His letter was very inspirational.

Lois was asking for a recipe for chili with a cornbread topping, so I hope she will like this casserole, as we do. A friend shared
it with me a long time ago.

Chili Cornbread Casserole Recipe

1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 chopped onion
1 can (15 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (15 oz. each) cans chili beans (I use Bush's brand)
1/2 tsp. onion powder
3 tsp. chili powder (can adjust to suit taste)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & pepper, to taste (I omit salt)
1-1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) corn bread mix (I use Jiffy)

Brown ground beef and onion together; drain. Add tomatoes, chili beans and seasonings. Simmer for 15 minutes. Put into greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Mix corn bread mix according package directions, adding 1/2 cup cheese. Pour corn bread mixture over chili mixture in pan, covering completely. Bake for 25 minutes at 400 until golden brown.

Sometimes I add some chopped green pepper with the onion too, and have used a minced fresh clove of garlic in place of the garlic

For Myron, and Barb, "Tones Steak Dust"
If he goes to the following link from the Spice Place:

Tones Steak Dust 14.5oz 412g $9.98USD - Spice Place

They say:
"Tones Steak Dust has again been rebranded, this time as Durkee Steak Dust. Please visit the Durkee Steak Dust page to order this product. Durkee Steak Dust is the exact same seasoning that you enjoyed under the Tone's Label in a new larger package labeled as Durkee Brand. Tones and Durkee are both brands offered by ACH Foods, Memphis, TN. "
Bill, Alb

Mr. Drinkwater, yes the Tones Signature Beef Seasoning, is the very same that we know and love as Steak Dust. BUT.....doing some searching/checking online this evening, I found out the name has again been changed. It has now been changed to Durkees Steak Dust. Which if I'm not mistaken was the original name. Which goes to show you....if it's not broken don't fix it. ??
I found it available on a couple of web sites.

I will be submitting a recipe for English Pea Salad for you in the next day or so.
Barb from San Diego, now in Texas

Good morning Nancy,
Newsletter looks great today. So glad to see all the prayers and good wishes for Myron Drinkwater.

How to make perfect hard boiled eggs: When you put a 1/2 tsp of baking soda in your egg water, it changes the pH level & keeps the eggs from sticking to their shells. And the end result is gorgeous, easy to peel, perfect hard boiled eggs. A friend told me about this and how well it worked. Her friend owns a small salad luncheonette and someone told her about this. I tried it and it does work great.

I also saw a video of a hard boiled egg being put into a glass half full of water. They shook it for about 1minute at the most, drained the water. Rolled the egg out onto their hand and the shell was off the egg. I tried it and it works great.
