Here is another sweet potato ball recipes for Cheryl. We prefer them baked, since we rarely eat fried food anymore. I have a friend who follows the recipe in yesterday's newsletter, but rolls them in coconut instead of corn flakes. The balls can easily be mixed up and frozen for later use, regardless if you are baking or frying them..

I am not familiar with the restaurant that Jean mentioned in the 3/5 newsletter, so I don't know if this recipe is close to what you want, but it is delicious. For a lower fat version you can use milk, but the soup will not be as creamy. I have also substituted cauliflower for the broccoli and also used a mixture of broccoli and cauliflower.

Broccoli Cheese Soup Panera Bread- Copy Cat

Ingredients
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half-and-half
2 cups chicken stock or bouillon
1/2 lb. fresh broccoli
1 cup carrots, julienne
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ozs. grated sharp cheddar cheese

Directions
Sauté onion in butter. Set aside. Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and slowly add the half-and-half (this is called making a roux). Add the chicken stock whisking all the time. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat until the veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes. Add salt and pepper. The soup should be thickened by now. Pour in batches into blender and puree.

Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in the nutmeg and serve.

I am a cheesecake fanatic and I also love apricots, This is absolutely one of the most delicious cheesecakes I've ever eaten. I use the commercial corn flake crumbs in a box, but can also use graham cracker crumbs. You may need to use 2 (15 oz.) cans apricots, if can't find a 30 oz. can.

"Spring Ahead" No-Bake Apricot Cheesecake

Crust:
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup prepared corn flake crumbs

Cook butter and sugar in small saucepan, stirring until butter melts; remove
from heat and add crumbs; reserve 2 tbsp. for garnish. Press remainder in the
bottom of a 9" springform pan. Chill.

Filling:
1 can (30 oz.) apricot halves, drained (reserve syrup)
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 container (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Combine 1/2 cup reserved apricot syrup and gelatin; stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves. Reserve 4 to 5 apricot halves for garnish. Blend remaining apricots on high speed in blender until smooth. Combine apricot and gelatin mixtures; set aside. In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, add sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice, mixing well. Stir in apricot-gelatin mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Turn into prepared pan. To garnish, slice reserved apricot halves into pieces and arrange in two-piece clusters around top of cheesecake. (can add mint leaves to clusters). Sprinkle crumbs around outer edge of cheesecake. Chill 3 hours.

NOTE:
It is optional, but you can make a glaze and spoon over the top of the cake. Combine 1/2 cup reserved syrup and 1 tbsp. cornstarch and cook until thick and clear; cool. Put on top of cheesecake. I don't do this.

Cheryl was asking for a recipe for Sweet Potato Balls, and this
is the recipe my mother always used, and were so popular
with all that tasted them. They are baked, which are healthier
than fried.

Sweet Potato Balls Recipe

Ingredients
3 cups cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
8 large marshmallows
1/2 cup crushed Corn Flakes (may need more)
1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind

Directions
Mash sweet potatoes; add butter, brown sugar, salt and lemon rind. With tablespoon, scoop up about 1/4 cup mixture. Center with marshmallow. Cover with more potato; shape into balls. Roll each ball in crushed Corn Flakes. Place in buttered baking pan. Bake at 350 about 20 minutes, until marshmallows began to ooze.
Makes 8 balls.

NOTE: Am not exactly sure how many sweet potatoes 3 cups would be, but I would imagine it would be 3 to 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes?

This is for Mr. Drinkwater. I was wondering if you saw the English Pea Salad recipe, I posted for you about a week or so ago? The reason I'm asking, is because you usually comment on recipes directed to you, so I was thinking you might have missed it.

Crock Pot Chicken Rice Soup Cream Style Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup uncooked rice
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup onions, chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
3/4 cup carrots, chopped or 1 can drained carrots
6 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil (or use all butter)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk or could sub evaporated milk (no less than 2% milk)

Directions
Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions: Rinse rice under running water. Place the uncooked rice, chicken breast, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, chicken broth, water, and poultry seasoning in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on the high setting for 3 to 4 hours or on the low setting for 7 to 8 hours. In the last half-hour of cooking, remove the chicken from the slow cooker. Allow to cool slightly before shredding using two forks.

When the rice is done cooking, add the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker. Melt the butter and oil in a saucepan. Add the flour and let the mixture cook for 1 minute. Whisk the mixture slowly while adding in the milk. Continue to whisk until all lumps have dissolved. Allow the mixture to thicken and become creamy.

Add this creamy mixture to the slow cooker. Stir to combine. Add additional water or milk, to your preference, if the consistency is too thick. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

It a very favorite here at my home!!
ENJOY !!

I love pickled eggs too and am going to try Judy's recipe as I have always made them with beets which makes a pretty rose colored egg. A "cheater" way to make them is to put the boiled eggs and a can of beets into the pickle juice that remains in the jar after the pickles are gone. Sweet gherkin pickle juice makes a perfect pickled egg. Let stand in the jar in the fridge two or three days to allow the color to permeate the egg white.

Layered Melon Kiwi Jello Cups Recipe

Ingredients
5 packages of Melon Fusion Jell-O mix
2 cups of Cool Whip, plus more for topping
Kiwi slice, to top each parfait

Directions
Layer 1: Combine 1-cup boiling water in a bowl with a packet of jello mix. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add in one cup of cold water and stir. Evenly divide this mixture among the cups you’ll be using. Refrigerate until set, 1-2 hours.

Layer 2: Combine 1-cup boiling water in a bowl with a packet of jello mix. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add in one cup of cold water and stir. Add in 1 cup of cool whip, and stir until mixed. Evenly divide this mixture among the cups you’ll be using, layering on top of the previous jello layer. Separation may occur, causing a lighter and darker layer. Refrigerate until set, 1-2 hours.

Layer 3: Combine 1-cup boiling water in a bowl with a packet of jello mix. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add in one cup of cold water and stir. Evenly divide this mixture among the cups you’ll be using. Refrigerate until set, 1-2 hours.

Layer 4: Combine 1-cup boiling water in a bowl with a packet of jello mix. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add in one cup of cold water and stir. Add in 1 cup of cool whip, and stir until mixed. Evenly divide this mixture among the cups you’ll be using, layering on top of the previous jello layer. Separation may occur, causing a lighter and darker layer. Refrigerate until set, 1-2 hours.

Layer 5: Combine 1-cup boiling water in a bowl with a packet of jello mix. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add in one cup of cold water and stir. Evenly divide this mixture among the cups you’ll be using. Refrigerate until set, 1-2 hours.

Top each parfait with a dollop of cool whip and a kiwi slice.

Notes: Depending on how many cups you are making and how thick you want each layer, you may have leftover jello from each layer. Either pour it in a different container to set or throw it away.

I am wondering if anyone has an idea of how to get the last bit of candle wax out of the heavy candle holders. I would like to use the glass containers they are in for other things.

Hello Everyone,
I ate at a Chinese restaurant, on Sat. They had a
broccoli dish, that had a white base, plus some white bread torn up in it and it was baked. Has anyone heard of it? I would appreciate any help I can get.
Thank you, Janie
