Salsa Recipe

6-8 tomatillos, husked and cut into large chunks
1 basket cherry tomatoes, washed and stemmed
1 bunch cilantro, washed and cut up
4 cloves chopped garlic or 1 tbs minced garlic
Juice of one lime
2-4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and sliced
1 giant Spanish onion, peeled and cut into large chunks

Put ingredients in blender and blend throughly. It may help to do the cherry tomatoes and tomatillas first to get a liquid consistency and then add in the other ingredients. Salt to taste.

This gets better each day and will keep for 4-7 days.
This recipe is one of my favorites. Do not know where it came from years ago.

We finally found Duke's mayo. It was difficult to find; went and called several stores, even Wal-mart. I tried it on my potato salad. Am I ever sold on this product! It never ran. Always looked like the salad was just made, even after two days. It's a super product. I know it's a little more expensive, but I believe it's worth it. Whoever started this about Duke's, thanks for introducing me to it.

The little cucumbers for pickling are called just that -- pickling cucumbers. You can find seed in any seed catalog. I would suggest buying plants for the peppers. You can get them at any local nursery or online. I think Burpee seeds sells them. You can grow a lot of veggies in 5 gallon buckets, just remember to
drill holes in the bottom for drainage. We used to grow peppers, tomatoes and eggplant that way, but I did have to hand-pollinate the eggplant. It also cuts down on the amount of water needed.

i Nancy.
The little cucumbers are called Kirby cucumbers. I like them, but I find they do not last very long.

Hi Nancy,
I buy all my seeds from Gurneys.I have bought from them for more years than I like to admit.Try looking them up on line at Gurneys Seed Co .

I hope your pain is diminished and you are on the mend.This old age is not all it is cracked up to be.
See ya, Harvey M Central Pennsylvania

This is a popular appetizer at any gathering.

Chicken Puffs Recipe

1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Heat water and butter to rolling boil in saucepan. Turn heat to low and stir in flour vigorously until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each, until smooth. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes, until golden brown and dry.

Remove and cool. Fill with Chicken Filling. Refrigerate.

Chicken Filling
3 cups minced chicken (or turkey)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup green olives, chopped
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Salt & pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Partially slit puffs crosswise and place a heaping spoonful of filling inside. Recipe says it makes 70, but I never get quite that many.

Here are two favorite coleslaw recipes. They are great to take to a cookout or pitching. They can easily be made a day ahead of time, which is always nice if you are hosting the gathering.

Sweet and Sour Creamy Coleslaw Recipe

3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste
Garnish: shredded carrots

Select a head of cabbage that is reasonably solid and heavy for its size, with green outer leaves. Place the shredded cabbage and carrots in a salad bowl. In a separate bowl combine yogurt, buttermilk, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, Dijon mustard, celery seed, cayenne pepper, salt, and white pepper. Whisk until smooth, or prepare in a food processor or blender. Toss the cabbage and carrots with the dressing and allow to marinate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Serve chilled, garnished with shredded carrots.

Variation: The salad can be prepared with half green cabbage and half red cabbage.

These brownies are so good, made with a brownie mix. If you love chocolate and peanut butter, these are sure to please your sweet tooth.

I don't use frozen fruit  very much so have no idea what size the bags/boxes are. What a bountiful harvest of Rhubarb I have this year so anyone who wants to send in Rhubarb recipes for desserts please do.
