This recipe came from the Mr. Food newsletter. Sounds like a real winner to me.

Sherry's Crunchy Tuna Salad Recipe

1 (12-ounce) can white tuna in water, drained
1 cup frozen petite green peas, thawed
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (10-ounce) package mixed salad greens
3/4 cup chow mein noodles

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

Serve over greens, and sprinkle with chow mein noodles.

Notes: This is a great salad to serve with Melba toast or plain or garlic-flavored bagel chips. It's also good served between 2 slices of multi-grain bread.

A friend told me about this recipe, but was no actual measurements, so will print it as close to how I make it, and hope you will be able to
understand my method.

Judy's Crock Pot Round Steak Recipe

Tenderized round steak (enough for the family)
Cooking oil
1 can cream of celery soup
1/2 soup can water
1 chopped onion
Worcestershire sauce

Coat round steak with flour (I also add some pepper to that) and brown in hot oil with the chopped onion.

Put in Crock Pot. Combine soup, water and a few "splashes" Worcestershire sauce and pour over meat.

Cover and cook all day on low heat. I always thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch mixed with cold water

in small saucepan, and serve the sauce on mashed potatoes.

Several people that said they didn't care for liver, have enjoyed this and couldn't believe they were even eating liver!

1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1/4 tsp. oregano leaves

1/4 cup chopped stuffed olives
1 tbsp. chopped parsley

Rinse slices of liver in cold water and drain on paper towel. Dip liver in flour to coat well and brown

in hot oil and sprinkle with salt. Add remaining ingredients (except for parsley).

Cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Re: Sticky Muffin Tin Solution: Thank you, Vivien from Central California, with the solution of spraying paper liners to aid in getting muffins out of the pan. I haven't tried this on the Omelette Muffins, but have tried that trick on Cottage Cheese Muffins. For the Cottage Cheese ones, it helped only slightly. They taste great, but you couldn't serve them to anyone but family, since they still stuck miserably and looked awful! Still worth a try on the Omelette Cups, so thanks for the suggestion.

Nancy Laurie was looking for a cookie that has rice krispies, oatmeal, butterscotch chips and nuts. The following cookie is as close as I could get to the cookie she is looking for.

Cup Of Everything Cookies Recipe

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup crisp rice cereal or rice krispies
1 cup flaked coconut, optional
1 cup ground walnuts or favorite nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 eggs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or butterscotch
Cream together the butter and the sugars. Mix in the oil and the flour. Add in oatmeal, rice krispies cereal, coconut, nuts, vanilla, salt, baking soda, eggs and chocolate or butterscotch chips. Mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoons or tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. These are one of my family's favorites. There's something for everyone in these.

Julie's Dishpan Cookies Recipe

2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
1 lb. softened butter or margarine
4 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 cups rice krispies or corn flakes
1 1/2 bags, 12 oz. each, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut, optional
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 bag butterscotch chips
1/2 cup raisins, optional

Mix together sugars with butter, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Add salt and baking soda to flour and stir into sugar mixture. Then add and mix into dough each remaining ingredient one at a time. Refrigerate dough 1 to 2 hours. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake approximately 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Yields 10 to 12 dozen cookies, depending on how many dough testers you have at your house.

Laurie hoping one of these will be close to the recipe.

Does anybody have a recipe for South Carolina vinegar based ribs? I saw the one from North Carolina, but I think South Carolina is different.
Thanks! Athena in DE

Hi Nancy, furkids and all Landers,
I was so happy to read that Little One is healing well and getting back to "normal". Please keep us updated on his progress. This recipe is one I believe I got from Mr. Food. It struck me as a little unusual, but since we love blueberries, decided to try it. In the warmer months, it is made quite often.

Blueberry Soup Recipe

3 cups water and 2 tablespoons water
1 quart (4 cups) fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar (I use C & H Stevia/Sugar blend, therefore only need 1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons cornstarch

In a saucepan, bring the 3 cups of water to a boil. Add the blueberries and sugar. Stir just until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and the 2 tablespoons of water, making a paste (it doesn't get very pasty!) Add the cornstarch mixture to the blueberry mixture, stir and bring to a boil. (Recipe did not say how long to boil; I just bring it back to a boil and stir for several minutes.)

Let mixture cool, then cover and refrigerate. Serve chilled. Can top off with sour cream or yogurt if desired.
