Correction for Overnight Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast.

Robbie, didn't notice that the syrup amount had been left off. I had copied it wrong from my friend's recipe so you did me a favor by pointing out the error too. Thank you.

To clarify, the maple syrup amount should be 1/3 cup.

Mary Ann's Zesty Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

3/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 tbsp. chili sauce
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
6 rib or loin pork chops (about 1 /2-inch thick)

Combine the first five ingredients. Place chops in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over. Cover and refrigerate 3-6 hours or overnight. To cook, remove chops from marinade and grill or broil 4 inches from the heat to desired doneness. Brush occasionally with the marinade. Yield: 6 servings. These pork chops make a quick company dish. Our family enjoys them on the grill, as the simmer weather in our part of the country is hot and muggy. In the wintertime, they're wonderful prepared in the broiler.

Thank you Diane

Hi Nancy,
I am looking for a recipe for strawberry punch. My sister-in-law used to make it for family reunion. Seems no one bothered to get it from her, and she has misplaced it. I think it had strawberry jello, maybe strawberry kool-aid, ginger ale, and just before you serve it, float a half gallon of softened strawberry ice cream in it. It was wonderful. I don't know if it had anything else, and not real sure about the kool-aid. Thanking anyone who has this recipe in advance.

Dear Nancy,
I am looking for an Amish Ham Bean Soup recipe, using dried pea OR navy beans, using just the ham broth, (without tomatoes or tomato sauce) that is slightly thickened. Whatever help you or your readers can lend is very much appreciate.

I love your site and your newsletter, and particularly like the interaction & help from other readers. Keep up the great work.

Nancy I really enjoy all of the recipes each day. I have made several great meals. Now I am look for a soup recipe called Cold Cucumber Soup, I had some on a trip that we took now to long ago and just loved it. So I hope that you can help me out. Thanks much. Judy W

Can anyone tell me how to get the fish taste out of oil so I can use it for other things. Also i would like a recipe to coat pecans (something sweet or cinnamon)
Thank you Flo

Last year we were in Lancaster, Pa. and I bought several jars of Tomato Pepper Relish. It is slightly sweet and made with red tomatoes and not green tomatoes. I have had no luck finding a recipe for this relish, can you please help me?
Thank you. Darlene

Do you have any recipes for blackening spice mix? I have checked the web and have found several ready made but none that you make yourself.
Thank You for any advice you can share with me.

My husband love my Pork and Apple Pie. Now, after 17 years, I have lost the recipe. Please say you have one. One would think I would remember it after all these years. I remember it was ground port,thinly sliced apples.brown sugar,and cinnaman and ????
Thanking You in advance, Patricia

I just wanted to tell you that you have a wonderful website! I live in Colorado but go to college in Pensylvania...right in the heart of Amish country and culture. I had corn fritters there, and I wanted to be able to make them for my family but I didn't have a recipe. I did a general search on the internet and it brought up your site! I'm glad I found it! Keep up the good work!
God bless! Joy
