You can use blueberry, strawberry or lemon pie filling in place of the cherry filling. This is always eaten quickly and I have shared the recipe with many. It is also nice since it can be made a day ahead of time.

Help is needed from Nancylanders. I am a soon to be single (kids off to college) and would love to have a recipe for (a mix) for muffins (maybe one that can be changed up to different type) for 1 person. Most recipes are for at the minimum 6 muffins. Just need one. Maybe baked in a individual muffin cup or custard cup. thanks so much

I love my new part time job. I have had to go through a lot of online training. Today was the first day I worked with children. It was hard to keep up the pace with 3 children (all on different grades and levels.) Monday I will be on my own. I am sure it will get easier as I work more and more. It is the perfect part time job for a retired teacher. I am so excited that Sylvan Learning Center here in Lubbock hired me. Although it does not pay much, I am very happy to have the job.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Guess I must have spring fever as I bought some garden seeds already lol. Newsletter looks great today. I need help from all our bakers in Nancyland. I went to a fish fry at a local church last Friday night. For dessert they had Poppy Seed cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Could someone please give me a recipe for these other than using cake mix. They were so moist and delicious. The only cupcakes I've ever made were from cake mix and the fish fry ladies said these were from scratch but didn't know who had made them. Thank you in advance for any help.

Gluten Free Banana Almond Pancakes with Date Caramel
Yield 30 mini pancakes/serves 6

For the date caramel:
1 cup chopped pitted dates
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
For the pancakes:
2 ripe bananas, peeled
1 cup whole milk, warmed
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups almond meal (ground almonds)
3/4 cup brown rice flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Melted unsalted butter, for pan
Sliced toasted almonds, for serving

For the date caramel:
Soak chopped dates in 1 cup hot water for 15 minutes. Transfer dates and their soaking liquid to a blender or food processor; add vanilla extract and salt. Blend until date mixture reaches a caramel-like consistency, adding a bit more hot water if needed. Transfer date caramel to a small serving bowl
or creamer.

For the pancakes:
In a large bowl, mash the bananas and whisk in the milk, eggs, and vanilla. In another large bowl, combine the almond meal, brown rice flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir well to incorporate.

Heat a large skillet or griddle to medium and brush it with a bit of butter. Drop batter by the tablespoon into the skillet to form pancakes. Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until light brown, about 30 seconds more. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing pan with butter as needed.

Drizzle pancakes with date caramel, sprinkle with almonds, and serve.

This is for Crissie who wanted to know how to peel tomatoes. I don't know how anyone else does it, but this is how we did it when I was a child. We would put the tomatoes in a tub of boiling water and let them set for a few minutes. Then we would take a knife and cut an X in the peeling on the bloom end. The peeling will come right off but be careful because the tomatoes will be hot.
Hope this helps, Anna

A stick of butter is 8 tablespoons which is 1/2 cup.

1/2 stick of butter would be 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup

Fortunately most brands have the measurement lines printed on the inner wrappers so you can easily just cut the amount needed with a knife. Nana in SE Ohio

You probably will get many responses. In my area, 1/2 stick of butter equals 1/4 cup or two ounces or 4 tablespoons. The wrappers are usually marked.

Oh my, Little One is so cute. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I bet too you have little teeth marks on the keyboard. LOL.

Most people have keyboards that wear out. Mine get teeth marks on them. Little One is cute, most of the time. He spends a lot of his time picking on me as I compole the newsletter. He likes to peek under the monitor and give me a look to tell me he either needs food or attention. I must have spoiled my cats. They would rather have attention than food. I guess they think there will always be food but I am not here 100% of the time to give them attention.


Nancy, thank you for all you do! I love coming home from a hard days work, and relaxing while reading this newsletter.

I have a request for some good, but easy please, chili rellenos that I can make here at home. I have an abundance of Anaheim chilies from the garden. I have the ability to roast and skin them now that I have a gas range. I would love to have some t&t recipes! I know that I can freeze them, but I want to make, for the first time ever, my favorite Mexican dish while the peppers
are fresh.

Thanks to all my dear friends here in Nancyland, and especially you, Nancy!

I would like to make a request for special recipes for jumbo size cookies, especially looking for sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies and chocolate cookies (not choc. chip) these are the ones that take 1/4 cup of batter I prefer ones that are specific for jumbo as increasing or decreasing size of cookie takes different cooking times and I dont have much luck do ing that. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help.

A while back there were recipes for potato soup using instant potatoes. Could someone please tell me when this was. I failed to get them copied, & I would like them for the coming cold days that might be ahead. thanks.
