Grape Salad Recipe
seedless grapes (red or green or a combination)
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (adjust
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1/2 - 1 cup light brown sugar (adjust to
Wash and stem grapes; drain. In large mixing bowl,
combine sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, and vanilla till smooth. Pour over
grapes; mix till thoroughly combined. In separate bowl, mix nuts and brown sugar
together. (I use the maximum amount of brown sugar, because I love the mix of
the flavor with the sweet/sour of the grapes.) Pour grape mixture into serving
dish; sprinkle top with sugar and nut mixture. Chill and serve. This recipe
makes a very large portion (suitable for a family gathering of 20 or possibly
more, depending on appetites). Recipe may be halved. Keeps well in refrigerator
for several days (if it lasts that long).
Warning: This stuff is addictive! The last few times I've made it, I've
bypassed many of the meats and carbs and all the chocolate desserts...and ate
this till I was ready to pop. from Frances in Wesley Chapel, Fl in the 7/30/2006

It is almost that time again.
– my way!
10 cups thinly sliced apples
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground
1/4 cup water – ONLY if not frozen!!!*****
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
sliced apples in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and
ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all.
Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and
melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour.
Oh my gosh, this is
delicious! I have never had such a delicious apple crisp! I will never search
for another recipe! I fixed this for my large, picky family for Thanksgiving.
There were no leftovers!:-) Here's what I changed. I made 2 batches. In one, I
added 1/4 cup of water rather than 1/2 cup. That was perfect. In the other batch
I didn't add any water at all, and it was a little drier than I like. So cut the
water in half. Also, I tossed the apples in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, and
I added some nutmeg to that mixture. I think that's what made the apples soooo
perfect. Lastly, I doubled the crust recipe and put a layer on top and on
bottom. Yum!!! I used 6 large Granny Smith's. I won't change a THING about this
recipe next time I fix it, which if my family has anything to say about it, will
be tomorrow!:-) 11-13-06 I made this again for like the 5th time. It's still
good, but I think next time I will try to cut the butter into the crust rather
than melt it. My crust is never "crumbly" like I like on a crisp recipe. Still a
5-star no doubt!!! Tasted wonderful. I followed the directions exactly this
time, but in the future I will make the following changes: cut the amount of
water in half, double the topping and add 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. You may need
to increase the cooking time as mine was not done in 45 minutes. Great recipe
*****I would add no extra water if the apples are frozen, way too
much liquid! I also did not add a crust to the bottom. I probably will next
time! Chris in NM
These were for the Aug. 16th newsletter.
For Sylvia in Scotland I generally use General Mills all purpose flour from
our grocery. It has always been just right and since I don't bake anymore a 10
lb. bag lasts a while. I do put it in a sealed heavy plastic container to keep
bugs out! Chris in NM
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Mushrooms Recipe
1 pound Brussels sprouts
4 pieces of bacon
1/4 cup red wine
Tamari - soy sauce
Prepare the bacon according to my Oven Baked
Bacon recipe. Save the fat that renders off. Cut the Brussels sprouts in halves
and rinse well. Slice the mushrooms finely. Bring a sauté pan to medium heat
with about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for
2 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts, cover the pan, and reduce the heat to low.
After a few minutes, add the red wine. They’ll need to cook over low heat for
about 25 minutes and you’ll need to occasionally add some water to the pan.
Remember to keep the pan covered. When the sprouts are very tender, sprinkle
with tamari and stir well. Chop the bacon finely and mix it into the dish just
before serving. serves 2 - 4 These are awesome! A good friend and HS classmate
gave this to me. Chris in NM

I halved the recipe since

Celebration Green Beans – T & T
1-1/2 pounds fresh
green beans, trimmed – I didn’t use this much
2 tablespoons canola oil
tablespoon cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon butter
dry bread crumbs - plain
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Place beans in a steamer basket; place in a
saucepan over 1 in. of water. *Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 7-8 minutes
or until crisp-tender. Transfer to a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking
spray. Combine the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper; drizzle over beans and toss to
coat. Set aside. In a small skillet, sauté onion and garlic in butter until
tender. Remove from the heat; stir in bread crumbs and cheese. Sprinkle over
beans. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 18-22
minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Yield: 8 servings. From Taste of
Home * I didn’t steam the beams first because I figured it would make them too
mushy after baking, so just mixed it all, after sautéing the garlic and onion
and continued with the rest of the recipe. This was very good! I served it with
Jagerschnitzel and German bread dumplings. Chris in NM

I have not felt well for several months. My back has been hurting. About 10 days
ago I passed a small kidney stone. Today my kidney doctor took a scan of my
kidney and found the problem There was a stone about the size of a golf ball in
my right kidney. Since I only have one kidney (the right kidney), the only
option to have surgery to remove the stone. It is my only kidney I will need to
stay in the hospital for a week or more. This means that the newsletter will not
be sent out during the time I am in the hospital and until I am able to sit at
the computer to compose the newsletter again.
Little One and Ditto will
be taken care of by friend that will stay with them. They will be happier at
home rather than in a pet care place. Both Ditto and Little One do not
understand or handle change very well. They will be happier at home.
will be going to Grace Hospital (2412 50th St, Lubbock, TX 79412) on Tuesday,
September 5, 2017. I do not know how long I will stay or how long the newsletter
will not be posted online.

1 #2 can sweetened sliced or tiny whole red
beets…the Amish style are great
very well; put into serving bowl. Zest orange over them, then cut in half &
squeeze the juice over all. Serve at room temperature, hot, or chilled. Serves
3-4, easy to multiply. We like them best at room temp. Remember this one when
unexpected company calls for another vegetable or side dish, or when you're
especially rushed. VARIATION: if you have time, before squeezing on juice,
drizzle on a tiny bit of red wine vinegar. Delish.
Marilyn in FL
Beets N Blue
2 #2 cans red beets, either slices or
wedges OR 4 c. cooked, peeled & cut
1 T. EACH sherry vinegar & walnut oil
(olive oil if no walnut available, but walnut is good)
1/4 tsp. EACH
coarse salt & freshly ground pepper
1/4 c. EACH crumbled blue cheese &
walnut or pecan halves, toasted or not, but toasted is tasty
Heat beets in their liquid till very very hot. If no liquid reserved, use as
little water as possible. Drain well & gently mix with all other ingredients,
avoid smashing the cheese, if you have time, you can mix all else,
then top with crumbles & nuts. Serve at once to 4-6.
Easy to multiply.
Looks elegant. Another quick one.
