Does anyone know how to clean large, plush stuffed animals that cannot be washed? I think I read about using cornmeal somewhere, but can't remember how to do it. Thanks!

Would like to have a recipe for sweet muffins. My Mother made them when I was young and they were so good. I was raised in Ga and my Mom pasted away when I was in my early teens.
Thanks Pat

I am requesting the help of all the good Southern cooks in Nancyland. I am having a committee meeting at my home and would like some good snacks to go with sweet tea. I will be making a dessert recipe and would like finger sandwiches, etc. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for a great website.

I wish to correct a error I made in the Stripped Delight Dessert that was posted in the March 7th newsletter, as I see I didn't put the / in between the 1/4 cup sugar, in the crust ingredients, so it shows up as 14 cups sugar! The correct amount is given in the directions to make it, but I did want to clarify that, in case you were wondering.

Hi Nancy,
Many thanks to you for the effort and caring you put into the newsletter. We're all so lucky to have you.

Quite a while ago there was many recipes in the newsletter using a rice cooker. I recently bought one and would love to try some of them. Can you direct me to a date or a way to search for some. I remember thinking of how creative and yummy they were.
Thanks. Ann

A baked zucchini fry with crushed almonds replacing bread crumbs makes a very light, tasty dish. Zucchini are prepped first to get rid of extra liquid so they do not become soggy in the oven. Like having fried food without the oil. Not sure what to dip them in since I can't have nuts. Guess I'll try the cheese by itself.

Low Carb Zucchini Fries Recipe

2 zucchini
1 tablespoon salt
2 eggs

1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut zucchini into 3-inch lengths, then cut each piece into 9 fries. Place zucchini fries into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let the zucchini pieces drain for at least 1 hour to remove excess liquid.

Beat eggs in a shallow bowl. Mix almonds, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning in a second shallow bowl. Rinse salt off zucchini and pat dry with paper towels.

Dip each zucchini piece into beaten egg and roll in the almond coating. Place coated fries on prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until the zucchini are tender and the coating is crisp and browned, about 25 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking time.

RE: How do you cook rice so it's not sticky and the grains are separate.
Mary Ann

We love the Jalapeno Jelly served at a Mexican Restaurant. We were told by our waitress that it contains honey, Jalapenos, and red sweet pepper, that's all she knew for sure. Does any one know of a similar recipe. It is more of a liquid like honey that "Certo set" jelly.
