This is a recipe I tried this week, and it was very good. Easy to make, and that is the kind I like. I put most of the dough in the freezer to use for expected company next week, but I did bake a few for me and my husband to eat while they were warm. Arlene/Mo.

Jan in Idaho was questioning the amount of half & half ---it is 1 1/2 Qts of Half & Half ( one and one-half quarts) ---yes - it's a lot of half & half but I would not skimp on it . This is what makes this Polenta so delicious . Also , in the recipe Mike mentions the spoon should stand up when stirring is complete . Don't pay attention to that . My spoon never gets to stand up on its' own. There's a lot of stirring involved -at least 20 minutes . Just make sure it's nice and thick . I just made it and served it with homemade tomato sauce and Italian Sausage .

Anita Camarillo wanted crock pt - slow cooker cake recipes in the 6/1 newsletter. This more of dessert than a true cake. it is an old recipe, so it is based on the larger cake mixes. As many have discussed in previous newsletters, for the original results in recipes designed with larger cake mix, use one of the many cake extender recipes that have been shared. I have other recipes I will send in the next few days.

Hi Nancy,
Once again I am turning to you and your readers for help in finding a cookie recipe. I made it over the holidays but discarded it as I could not find the packaged chopped peppermint pieces. Well, the other day I found a package in a local store but now I have no recipe! The only two ingredients I can remember are cream cheese and the chopped peppermints. Please help!
