Hello Nancy and all Landers,
Wow, lol up to my ears in Strawberries so was super glad to see all the recipes that call for strawberries. Planted 25 June bearing plants last year and boy have they produced. We have had just enough rain and sun. This is a non food related question. I have a new flat screen monitor for my computer - can anyone tell me how to clean it? Son got some splatters of milk on it and I don't know how to clean it without harming the screen.

We really enjoy this light and creamy salad and it is ideal to serve when it's warm out.

Lemon Pear Salad Recipe

1 large can (29 oz.) pears, drain and reserve juice
1 cup water
1 pkg. (6 oz.) lemon Jello
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Combine reserved pear juice with water and bring to a boil. Stir in the Jello to dissolve; chill until partially set. Combine pears and cream cheese in a blender and process until smooth. Fold into thickened Jello. Fold in nuts and whipped cream. Pour into a 9 inch square dish and chill until firm.

I have been experimenting with the Rangemate from QVC. This is a fantastic way to “grill” in the microwave and terrific for one or two people. There are 2 shapes - oval and round. There are many recipes provided on their site and in the accompanying book. I used it last night on a piece of Copper River salmon sent from my son in Seattle from Pike Place Market. Here is the glaze that is in the booklet that came with my oval Rangemate. I have just ordered the round one which comes with 2 additional pans.

Glaze for Salmon Recipe

1 T. Djon mustard
1 t. prepared horseradish
1 T. honey
1 T. olive oil
2 skinless salmon fillets ( 5-6 oz. each)
Salt & ground black pepper, to taste

Claussen Kosher Pickle Copycat

1 gallon cucumbers
1/3 cup dehydrated minced onion
2 teaspoons dehydrated minced garlic or 6 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons mustard seeds
4 teaspoons dill seed
1 1/2 quarts water
2 cups cider vinegar
1/2 cup canning salt

Slice cucumbers lengthwise into quarters add to jars. Boil liquids and seasonings for 5 minutes to dissolve the salt and wake up the flavors, then cool.
Pour over pickles and let sit on counter for three days turning them occasionally. Then refrigerate. They will keep for a year.

Please do not try to use the regular grocery store cucumbers, they have wax on them and they will not turn out. You can use grocery store pickling cucumbers,
as they are not waxed.

To Linda NM, Do you by any chance ever get into Albuquerque? There is a restaurant called Mac's Steak in the Ruff on West Central, that has the best green chili, I have been going there for 30+ years now. I buy it by the pint so I am never out of stock. It is just a hole in the wall, small place, but always busy with locals. And all rave about the green chili.

I had high hopes that you could taste it sometime, and tell me how to make some that is just, almost as good.
bill, Alb.
