This recipe group is the best on the internet. There are so NancyLanders members that share their favorite recipes.  I have been with the group for many years and appreciate everyone now and in the past. I remember all great recipes coming from Tona, Susie, Margaret, Robbie, Oma, Judy from Montana, Karen, Mary J, Lisa, Jean and many others I haven't mentioned.  Thank you all for sharing your tried and tested recipes over the past 19 years. We are so lucky to have you.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
We are very fortunate in Wisconsin in that we have had rain for the last five days but nothing like Texas has had. Everything in my garden is up already BUT last nite we had temp of 38* so I was afraid everything would freeze but garden was okay. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who didn't know what a Brick of Chili was lol.

Now I will be sure to look for it in the frozen food section. I am personally so glad whoever sends in a recipe states that they have made it or haven't so I know ahead of time. Even at my age I've had some real flops when trying a new recipe that no one else has tried.

We had tomato gravy about 3 times a week for breakfast when I was growing up in Alabama.

Mom would fry either patty sausage or bacon, then take them out of the pan and use flour to make a roux. Then, she would add a can of diced tomatoes and a can of water. The sausage was either put back in or served on the side the bacon was always on the side. We always had greit, eggs, and homemade biscuits. That is a real Southern breakfast.

Quick and Easy Roast Recipe

I also love Judy in Alaska recipes. Her hurry up chocolate cake, turkey sloppy joes, meat roll ups are just a few I use regularly. I appreciate all those who contribute and thanks to Nancy for all her hard work.. Also love to hear of Little One and Dittos antics.

Thank you for one delicious German Chocolate Pie recipe, was a big hit & a definate keeper. As a general rule your posted TNT recipes are very similar to the Pennsylvania Dutch/German recipes from my area. I feel very comfortable knowing I will have a successful baked product or main/side dish if I see your name attached to it. Thanks again for being such a productive contributor to Nancys Kitchen.
