These were such a popular cookie when our children were growing up and always make a hit on a cookie tray, quickly disappearing.

S'more Topped Bars Recipe

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups milk chocolate baking chips
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped peanuts

In electric mixer bowl, combine sugar, butter and egg. Beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes) on medium speed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and beat on low speed about 1 minute. Spread batter in greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Place chocolate chips over batter; sprinkle with marshmallows and peanuts. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Cool completely and cut into 3 dozen bars.

NOTE: You can use 8 oz. plain milk chocolate bars in place of the milk chocolate chips.

I have leg cramps at night. Someone told me to eat some cherries in the evening to help with the cramps. Has anyone tried this and did it work? What kind of cherries and how much?

Hubby really likes this soup. Wild rice is very good for a person,
as it's nutritious, high in fiber and low in calories.

Wild Rice Soup Recipe

1 cup uncooked wild rice
3 cups boiling water
2 strips smoked bacon (I use more bacon)
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup sliced carrots
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 soup cans milk
1 can (14 oz.) chicken broth
1 can (4 oz.) mushrooms, with liquid
1 tsp. seasoned salt (I cut in half)
Pepper, to taste

Combine rice and boiling water in large saucepan; simmer, covered, 50 minutes. Drain off excess liquid; set rice aside. Fry bacon until crisp and crumble. Sauté onion, celery and carrots in small amount of bacon fat. Combine broth, soup, milk, mushrooms, salt and pepper, reserved crumbled bacon, sautéed vegetables and wild rice. Simmer, covered for 1 hour.
Makes 8 servings.

My sister-in-law used to make a wonderful vermicelli salad. I think she said she would let the noodles marinate in some kind of dressing and then would add olives, some mayo and not sure what else. Does anyone have a recipe for this? Thanks.

This may be a recipe Elaine in WV is looking for? It only uses 4 ingredients and they are out of this world delicious. I may have posted them in the newsletter before, but you might have missed the recipe.

Sue, this is the recipe I use for split pea soup, and is the best I've ever tasted. I can hardly wait until after Easter, when I can put the meaty ham bone into the soup pot and make this delicious meal! It doesn't have a grainy texture.

Split Pea Soup Recipe

1 lb. (2-1/2 cups) dry green split peas
2 quarts (8 cups) water
i meaty ham bone (can use smoked ham hocks)
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp. dried marjoram
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrot

In large saucepan, add enough cold water to cover peas, and soak overnight (or combine peas and water, bring to boiling and boil gently for 2 minutes and soak for 1 hour). Drain and add 2 quarts of water, onion and seasonings to the peas. Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, covered, stirring occasionally. Remove ham bone , dicing up the meat from it and add it back to the soup along with the carrots and celery. Cook about 30 minutes more, until veggies are tender. Add salt to taste (I find I don't need to add much).
Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Reheating Refrigerated Bread Tip
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

I would like to have a recipe for a
breakfast bar or muffin that I can reheat and eat for breakfast. I get so tired of cereal or eggs and toast in the morning. Does anyone have a good recipe I can make ahead and freeze or hold in the refrigerator until it is eaten up?

This is for Ana
Re: TNT recipe for 1000 Island Salad Dressing? I am in need of one. Thanks. Ana

I make this all the time. We love this on just about anything. Sandwiches, salad, I like it for dipping my fries in. The measures are about amounts. I never measure.

Thousand Island Dressing Recipe

1 to 2 cups good mayo (I use Best Foods)
1/3 cup or so of ketchup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish (or to your liking)
1 to 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (optional I don't always use)

Mix all together.

This dressing is really delicious and far better than any commercial salad dressing I've ever tasted. I hope you will like it, Ana. I'm sure you could use real mayonnaise in place of the Miracle Whip.

1000 Island Dressing Recipe

1 pint (2 cups) Miracle Whip
2/3 cup sugar
4 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
4 small green onions, chopped (with tops)
1 green pepper, diced
4 tbsp. ketchup
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

Mix together well and pour into quart jar with lid and refrigerate.

A friend told me that his mother always put "something" in
canned creamed corn to make it taste better. I tried a little sugar and butter but that didn't help. Do you have any suggestions that I could try?

Hi everyone!
enjoy reading and using your recipes and letters.
Would anyone have recipe for a
Peach Dessert which uses dry Jell-O and mini, Marshmallows. Have lost this TNT recipe and in hopes some one out there in Nancy Land has a copy. Thanks in advance

Frosting Tip for Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount You also eat less sugar/calories per serving.
