Fish is very delicious prepared like this. I use fresh King Salmon, but you can use any kind of fish. It calls for fresh fish, but am sure you could use fish that has been frozen. I used more than the recipe called for, probably twice that much. I've always used prepared cornflake crumbs instead of crackers and is delicious also.

Herbed Baked Fish Recipe

6 oz. fish fillets
24 saltine crackers
2 tbsp.melted butter
2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. sweet basil leaves
1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Mix all ingredients, except fish and butter. Roll fish in melted butter, and then roll in crumb mixture. Place in baking dish in single layer. Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes, until flakes easily with a fork.

This is a very good variation from regular French Toast and one we've enjoyed over the years.

Pineapple French Toast Recipe

2 eggs
3 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup pineapple juice
2 tsp. orange rind
6 slices stale bread

Beat eggs slightly; add remaining ingredients, except bread. Dip both sides of bread in mixture and brown on both sides in hot skillet.

This is a really good casserole that is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

Beef Taco Bake Recipe

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 can tomato soup
1 cup chunky salsa
1/2 cup milk
8 corn tortillas (6 to 8 inch)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use more)

Brown beef; drain. Cut tortillas into 1 inch pieces. To cooked meat, add soup, salsa, cut up tortillas and half the cheese. spoon into a 2 quart baking dish, cover and bake at 400 for 30 minutes, or until hot. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and serve.

Suggestion for Jerry
My Mom used to make a nutritious soup for herself when she was recuperating from cancer. She’d cook up fresh vegetables she liked in low sodium chicken broth and when they were tender she’d put them in the blender and make a soup.

You can make it as thick or thin as you like, you might be able to drink it through a straw if it was thin enough.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

If you want a delicious grilled rib eye, but you don't have a grill or want to fire one up, try this. It is fast, simple and sure to please . Think you will be happy with the results.

Rib Eye Steak Recipe

Boneless Rib Eye Steak, 3/4-1 inch thick
Seasoning Salt to taste
Lemon Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
Liquid Smoke, optional( I usually omit)
Worcestershire Sauce
Olive Oil, according to directions

Drizzle steak lightly on each side with Olive Oil. Then sprinkle with desired amount of salt, pepper, garlic powder. Drizzle lightly with Worcestershire Sauce and liquid smoke on each side.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a black cast iron skillet preheat on High till HOT. Drizzle lightly just to barely coat skillet with Olive Oil. Quickly add steak and sear on each side to brown about 3-4 minutes per side. ( It is important to add steak immediately to avoid Olive Oil from getting too hot!). Turn off burner fire and cover well with foil. Crimp foil down as much as possible. Place in 425 degree preheated oven for 25 minutes for mouth watering, well done steak. If you prefer less than well done back off the cooking time.

Serve with sliced onion and bell peppers drizzled with Olive Oil, Worcestershire Sauce, and sprinkled with lemon pepper grilled on a preheated George Fireman Grill. No George Foreman Grill? Use a skillet to do the job.

In 7-28 newsletter Robbie,In asked about what size pan for peach cake. It is from temptations bake ware on Q V C. It shows a 3 qt round casserole dish. You could use a 8x8 or 8x10 bake dish. It does not say what size baking dish. I saw it already cooked on the program. But it is sooo good.

Hello again everyone...
This is a recipe I've modified from one my father gave me years ago for 7 Day Sweet Chunk Pickles and another, Craven County Sweets. I've made these pickles several times, and though they do take 7 days, there really isn't much hands on time with them. I make them in a 7 or 8 quart plastic container that came from Walmart. They're easy and do not need to be processed, just kept in a large jar in the refrigerator.

7 Day Sweet Chunk Pickles Recipe

9 or 10 pickling cucumbers
10 tbsp pickling salt
1½ tsp. alum
6 cups sugar
6 cups cider vinegar
2 tbsp. pickling spices
1 or two extra cinnamon sticks, cracked

Day 1: wash the cucumbers, place in a crock or plastic container and cover with boiling water. Let stand overnight.

Day 2: pour off the water and rinse in fresh cold water. Dissolve the salt in to quarts of boiling water and pour over the cucumbers. Let stand for 24 hours.

Day 3: pour off the salted water and rinse the cucumbers with fresh cold water. Cut the cucumbers into chunks. Dissolve the alum in 2 quarts of boiling water and let stand over night.

Day 4: Drain the cucumbers and rinse well. Mix sugar and vinegar and pickling spices (tie in a cheesecloth bag) and bring to a gentle boil until sugar is dissolved. Pour over cucumbers, add the extra cinnamon sticks. Cover and let stand 24 hours.

Days 5, 6 and 7: Drain sugar and vinegar, bring to a boil and pour back over the cucumbers.

Day 8: Pack the cucumbers in a large jar and cover with the vinegar sugar syrup. Keep in the refrigerator. They can be processed in a hot water bath, but they'll stay in the refrigerator of quite a while.

Anyone with questions, please let me know. My next attempt will be bread and butter spears,
