Anyone have the recipe for Caramel corn? May not be exact name , but it had brown sugar, butter, Karo syrup. It was cooked, poured over popped popcorn. Then, it was baked in oven. I made this in the 70's. Would like to find the
recipe. Thanks.

No newsletter was sent out yesterday.  When more recipes, questions and tips were sent in today, the newsletter was sent out.

I'm in need of a recipe. The weather has turned cold(er) LOL and rainy in my part of southern California and just right for a good batch of split pea soup. A few years back I found what I considered to be the BEST recipe for split pea soup that I've ever had. I may have gotten it from this Nancyland site but I've lost the recipe and can't locate it in the Nancyland files. So I'm sending this request to all Nancylanders who have a good TNT recipe for split pea soup to post it on this site for everyone to consider. The recipe I've misplaced or lost called for the dry split peas to be soaked and then (I think) cooked with a ham hock or ham shank but since I don't have the recipe I'm uncertain of just how it all went together - but it was a Keeper of a recipe and I'd like to find it again or something similar. I was never all that interested in split pea soup but the recipe I lost made a believer out of me that this kind of tummy filling comfort food is a winner when the temperature and other weather conditions dictate 'Soup on the Menu'.

Re:Neck Bones Recipes
My dear friend Carolyn used to buy a big batch of neck bones, cook in a large pot with water, salt and when done, she put chunks of potatoes or diced ones in the broth and cooked till the potatoes were tender. Serve with home made cornbread and you have a good country meal that is inexpensive. Served her family well.

Strawberry Banana Topped French Toast Recipe

1 egg
1/4 cup fat free milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 slice (1 ounce) whole grain bread
1/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup sliced banana

In a shallow bowl beat the egg with the milk and cinnamon. Dip both sides of the bread in the milk mixture.

Spray a small skillet with non-stick butter spray and place the bread in the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden and cooked through. Cut in half diagonally. Place half on a plate. Top with half of the strawberries and bananas. Cover with the other toast half and the remaining strawberries and bananas.

I am looking for a substitute for bacon or salt pork in a recipe.
Thanks, Janis

We are trying to find good frugal recipes. Does anyone have some suggestions on how to cut down costs when cooking.

Batter Fried Vegetables Recipe

Mushroom, onion rings, carrots, asparagus, zucchini and yellow squash, broccoli, cauliflower

Pancake batter
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste (after deep frying)

Dip vegetables in batter. Deep fry in vegetable oil.
Works well with zucchini and other squash. Love fresh asparagus deep fried. Carrots should be cut into 3 inch lengths and cut into strips about 1/2 inch wide and cooked a few minutes before dipping in batter and frying.

Betty Crocker Free Samples Just for You 

When I was a child I can remember my mother making what she called "TEA CAKES". Had nothing to do with tea. I remember her making them like she would biscuits made from scratch. She would make a hole in the flour and pour in the cane syrup with sugar added and some lard and do not remember her adding milk but she may have. Do not know if any other ingredient was added. She made these like small biscuits but patted them into a prepared baking pan in squares. When done the bars or teacakes would be merged together and she would cut them into squares. Very moist and chewy. Would love to get this recipe if someone knows of it.

Double Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe
(bread machine adaptation)

1/2 c. water
1/4 c. Crisco, cut up
1 egg, 2 T. of white reserved (for Topping)
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/8 c. bread flour
1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast
1 T. margarine, melted (or butter)
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. COLD butter
Reserved egg white

Process dough on Regular Dough cycle; or make as usual by hand. you can make this up right away, or hold it in a sealed bowl in the refrigerator up to 4 days. Chill the reserved egg white in this case.

When wanted, pat out to 9" x 14" on a floured board. Brush with the melted margarine and sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar for the swirls. From BOTH short sides, roll VERY tightly into the middle, and seal sides where they meet. Put into a greased loaf pan, seam UP, cover with wax paper and let rise to nearly double in a barely warmed oven. Meanwhile, mix Topping, except for egg white, by cutting into crumbs with a fork or pastry blender. When dough is risen, while preheating oven to 375º, brush top with egg white and sprinkle on all the topping crumbs. Tent foil over loaf before putting in oven; bake 45 minutes; remove foil and bake 5 - 10 minutes more. Test center with a toothpick to be sure it is baked through. Cool in the pan 5 minutes, then remove to a rack. Wonderful breakfast loaf, and keeps very well for 2 days. This is a really really old recipe. Gansie (my grandma) had it in her box of goodies......but I did adapt it to make the dough in a machine. Marilyn in FL

Old Fashioned Cinnamon & Nut Rolls Recipe
(bread machine adapted)

Process on Regular Dough cycle or make as usual by hand:
1/2 c. water
1 egg
1/4 c. (4 T.) Crisco, cut up
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/8 c. bread flour
1/2 T. (1 1/2 tsp.) bread machine yeast

Pat it out to 1/2" thick or less on a floured board.

Cream together: 1/3 c. soft margarine (or room temperature butter)

1 c. powdered sugar, sieved or sifted
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 c. minced pecans

Spread on dough & roll up very tightly. Cut into 1/2" rolls, no thicker. Butter a round or rectangular pan that will hold the number of 1/2" thick rolls you have cut, and sprinkle it well with
granulated white sugar. Put rolls in the pan, brush with melted margarine, then sprinkle with a little more granulated sugar. Raise till doubled, 40 - 55 minutes, then bake at 350º for *20 to 30 minutes. Cool on a rack. *NOTE: because of all the sugar these rolls can burn easily, so keep an eye on them from 15 minutes in the oven.

Thanks to the Nucoa Margarine Company; this came from their 1930's pamphlet.
