Re: KFC Cole Slaw Copycat/Clone sent in by Mr. Myron Drinkwater - Lake Forest, CA

KFC Cole Slaw Copycat/Clone
8 cups very finely chopped cabbage (1 large head)
1/4 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar
2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Be sure that the cabbage and carrots are chopped up into very fine pieces (about the size of rice kernels).

Combine the sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl and beat until the consistency is smooth. Add the cabbage and carrots and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours
before serving. Yield: 8 servings.

(The critical part of this cole slaw recipe is the flavor enhancement period prior to eating. Be absolutely certain that the cole slaw sits in the refrigerator for at least
two hours prior to serving for a great tasting cole slaw.)

This is the recipe for Cole Slaw I use for our family get-togethers and we all really like it.
v of OK

Nancy, we have 2 cats so I know what you put up with. I love them very much. I know when you lose one you can never get over it. You at least have Ditto, which does help.

Re: One question , what do I do with the four pints of turkey broth? .
Try making fried macaroni, a favorite around here.
Fried Macaroni For Two.
Brown 7 oz small macaroni in olive oil for 7-8 minutes until toasted. (I like to use Barilla Gemelli because it has so many edges to toast)
Add 3 Tbsp of your favorite cooking wine and simmer almost covered in chicken/turkey broth until very al dente-- almost crunchy. (Less than 10 minutes.)
Uncover and boil off excess liquid. Add sauteed mushrooms and parsley. Top with freshly ground pepper and grated cheese.

January 6th newsletter. Thank you to Nancy for her positive thoughts in her journal. I, too, do this but I start counting my blessings before I get out of bed in the morning. I started doing this because I am a Morning Grouch. Don't talk to me till I am awake and my brain has kicked into gear!. Heaven help me if I have to think right away. I wanted to break that habit so I had heard about counting your blessings when you wake up. I thought that was a neat idea. So, I started and lo and behold it does help. I have to think to come up with ten things and that starts the brain working and the body responding to all those synapses that are going on. When I finish, I then do all my therapy sessions for my arthritis in my knees and hip. This gets my joints lubricated and working and I end up getting up and singing Good Morning to You with my developmentally challenged daughter. We both start the day in a good mood that way.  Try it, it does help.

For Kathy Clark in SW Kansas Jan 6 newsletter:

I attended an international tea in the spring where the food and the decorations were related to a particular country for each table. This was different and fun. The only problem was we all kept wondering what all the other tables were serving!
Lolo in KY

Kathy Clark in SW Kansas is looking for ideas to have a tea party where people sponsor tables and each one is decorated differently. Here's one that I have seen done at a local fair. Each booth is filled with a floral or greenery display arranged by a garden club. It's done along the lines of the theme the committee decides on each year. Your theme could range from a food group to a color to a hymn or Bible verse. You would set the theme and each table would be decorated with whatever that group wanted to use, dishes, decorations, tablecloths and other items. You could award prizes or not.

This is for Kathy Clark in SW Kansas
The Friends of the Library held a mother-daughter tea where each participating member had a table to decorate. There were 10 or 12 tables. We each brought our best china, silver, crystal, napkins rings, napkins, serving pieces, etc.. The tables were round, seating for eight and were covered in white linen clothes. The centerpiece was a teapot filled with flowers. This was the table prize. The teapots were purchased by the group and the flowers were donated by the local florist. The coffee and tea were also donated by the local coffee shop. Tickets were sold in advance, I don't remember what they cost. We also had a member take a picture of each mother/daughter and then take it to Walgreens during the party so they could be picked up before the afternoon was over. There was a charge for each photo. We served assorted cookies and tea sandwiches made by the members and our entertainment was a local celebrity who spoke on manners and etiquette. Many of our guests had younger daughters who could benefit from this. I took my daughter and granddaughter and they enjoyed it immensely. This was held the Sunday afternoon before Mother's Day. Not only was this a money maker but it created interest in joining our group.
JoAnn, Brookfield, Wi.

For Kathy in SW Kansas regarding table settings in the Jan 6 newsletter

I don't know how many tables you have but these are a few ideas I had. Pick different countries and decorate accordingly, several holidays, such as Easter, Valentine's Day, St. Paddy's, President's Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas. Or how about different states, Hawaii, (beach theme), New York, (big city lights), Iowa, (corn and pigs), Texas (cows).
Hope this helped.
Leasa in Iowa

To Carolyn, Rochester, New York in 1/6/09 NL Thank you so much for the Italian Wedding Soup Recipe. This is the exact recipe I have been looking for, for a long time. As for it being time consuming-I have more time than anything else these days, so this will be a good way to occupy it! (smile) Will let you know how DH likes it.

Hi friends, I need a recipe for roasted vegetables, to take to a pot luck. Thanks, Boots in Va

Happy New Year to Nancy and All Landers. I have been watching the weather over all the country and am so glad that I am in the Southeast. We have been warmer than 'normal' - had the sliding glass door open on Christmas Day. Last night was a bit rainy but today has been mostly sunny with some wind. I don't want to live in the snowy portion of the country. I tried that for about 3 years and didn't like it. I'll weather the occasional hurricane here first.

Anyway, for Barb in N CA who in the 1/6 newsletter was talking about her summer salad with cottage cheese, green onion, carrot, etc. I also use this combination and really enjoy it for a meal when the weather is so hot and sultry I can't stand to be in the kitchen. I make mine with the cottage cheese, sliced green onions, chopped green onion, grated carrots & diced tomato. Season with a bit of salt and plenty of black pepper. I make up a large container of cottage cheese and have enough to last for 2 - 3 days, if it last that long. For the one's who think they just 'have to have' a meat with a meal, I'll add a couple of deli-sliced ham and deli-sliced Swiss cheese roll-ups. Serve on a bed of leaf lettuce. This also makes a pretty lunch plate to serve guests. I'll have to try Barb's idea of the sliced radishes in it also. I haven't tried it but have also wondered how it would taste with sliced black olives. Think I'll have to give it a try. Sorry this sound so disjointed today.
Oma in LA (Lower Alabama)

Our Church has used this idea quite often. One Lady is in charge of a table, and the decorations, and favors for the table. We don't assign the tables, we ask for volunteers. The Lady responsible usually brings in place settings from home. It is very nice to see all the different ideas and settings. Good Luck and Have fun.

For Kathy Clark in W. Kansas re church Tea. We have done this many times. Sometimes we do a full catered dinner and sometimes a potluck and sometimes a Tea. Different women sign up to decorate a table, usually with an overall theme. They bring everything for the table.. dishes, flatware, centerpiece, etc. When we did a Tea, everyone brought their own tea cup and the "decorator" brought the tea pot. The last one we had was at Christmas and the theme was The Night Before Christmas. The table I sat at was decorated as the 8 reindeer and was hilarious. I've seen many original ideas and it's fun to just see how all the tables are decorated and saves the church a lot of money. Some of the tables are very extravagant and some are quite simple, but they're all fun.
Susan in Iowa

I have been experimenting with sweet breads. I’m looking for a TNT old time recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. I tried a recipe from a cookbook and was very pleased with the dough. The dough was nice and sweet and I would make this again with some changes of my own. This cinnamon roll recipe was made just as it says, in a roll. It ended up looking like a loaf of French bread when it was done. What I’m after is the, melt in your mouth, white glazed cinnamon rolls in a pan. Preferably a yeast dough.
Thank you, Angie in Ohio

Billie in Fl- Thanks for the information about the aerogarden. That is exactly what I would like to do with mine. Now I am going hunting for one.
Carol in Tx.

Does anyone have a recipe for something called Cream Cheese Danish. They are made with two packages of crescent rolls, with a cream cheese mixture in the center. Then topped with cinnamon. Thank you for your help..

Hi Nancy, This is for the person wanting a a recipe for Orange Julius. If she will go to Top 100 Recipe Site it is one of the recipes listed under "Copycat Recipes". Margaret, Tulsa

To Pat in SC bored with cooking, 1/5/2009 Newsletter: I can really relate to that! I feel the same way. Fortunately my husband allows me to have a few simple meals tucked in around those I have to cook. Three of my easiest:

#1: Canned tomato soup (add fat-free milk instead of water), season to taste. Serve with:
Open-faced cheese sandwiches: Put a slice of cheese on a piece of bread, top with thin-cut sliced onions and dot some catsup over it, broil until cheese melts.

Add anything sweet that is in the kitchen - fruits, make a quick banana pudding, cookies, cereals, anything.

Go watch your favorite TV show. (I can get out of the kitchen FAST with this one!)

#2: Sun-Birds Hot and Sour Soup with egg added. A regular grilled cheese or any kind of sandwich and something sweet - maybe a fruit cup. Go watch another TV show. (A MUST if you have a bad cold.)

#3: Heat Bertolini Alfredo Sauce and add a package of a good brand of frozen shrimp, medium-sized, pre-cooked, de-tailed, thawed. Heat until hot (or use any other seafood you like). Serve over minute rice with a tossed salad.

Find something else sweet that you didn't use last time. Read a Book or Go to bed - your choice.

If you need more suggestions I probably can come up with more.

Happy New Year and Happy Cooking to Nancy, Ditto and ALL the Landers!!
Barbara in AL

Pat in SC – I am in the same boat with you – bored with thinking up endless meals and cooking! How did this get to be “women’s work” anyway? I have a DH that won’t eat leftovers and is a picky eater also with ever changing food dislikes! Try to solve that puzzle and it will make you crazy. I, too, need some easy delicious meals that will take the boredom out of cooking! I am an excellent cook but right now an uninspired one.
Jan in Mo.

I too have been battling a head cold. It's my first in 2 years. I thought that the doctors removed more than the lump in my breast in Dec. '06 because I haven't had the sniffles or anything like a cold until New Year's night . I started w/ the sore throat and woke up with a head cold and I'm still fighting it, but I had to comment about the sour cream being turned upside down that Betty T in Ga. sent in. It really works. I've kept cartons of sour cream in the bottom of my refrigerator. for a very long time.
Diana in KCK

Does anyone out there in NancyLand know if there's something that can be run through the dishwasher to clean the inside? You would think the detergent in the wash cycle would take care of this, but I still have some pesky dark spots I would love to get rid of.
Barbara in Las Vegas

To JL in South Jersey, thanks for the Diabetic No Bake Date Drop Cookies recipe in the 1/6/09 newsletter. Question: I'm not a big fan of dates. Is there a substitute for the dates that would be equally as tasty, moist, etc.? Thanks!

Also, I don't have a GT Express that everyone is talking about, but I must say you have my mouth watering! I must look for one. I was only a little interested until Diana in RI mentioned that you can use egg beaters in place of eggs. Now Im extremely interested and plan to do some window shopping for the best place and price to get one! Thanks everyone!
Dee in S. IL.

My Cole Slaw (for Diana in RI, 1/5/2009 Newsletter):

Sprinkle of sugar

Grate 1/2 to 3/4 of a head of cabbage. (I use my hand grater. The bought, already shredded could be used, but is much drier.) Shred some carrots (to taste) to add to the cabbage. Grate an onion to taste. Mix all together and sprinkle with a "little - not much" sugar. Add mayo to moisten. EAT! I have never served this to anyone that didn't like it.

Hi Chris in California,
Regarding the baking at high altitudes, I can relate to your problems as I live in Colorado (originally from NJ). I have wanted more than once to pull my hair out when trying to bake something only to watch it fall right in the middle. I didn't pull my hair out but have stood in front of the oven more than once and
cried. Hahahaha I use Marie Callenders corn bread without any problems. I bake it for the maximum amount of time and I put in a loaf pan instead of an 8 x 8 pan. I don't know if that makes a difference. Here are some high altitude tips that you can try:


For Baking powder; Baking soda; or Cream of tarter, reduce amount by one-half.

For Flour, increase by 2 teaspoons per cup.

Increase oven temp. 25 degrees. Most cakes should be baked at 375.

Grease and dust cake tins a little more generously to minimize sticking.

Hope this helps, Donna in Colorado

Many thanks to Judy in Buffalo for both the Lemon Pie and Dreamsicle Mousse recipes. They are exactly the two that I was looking for. Those of you who are starting New Year diets or are diabetics, both these recipes are delicious. Also, thanks to Chris in NM for the layered lemon pie recipe which also looks good so I'm also going to try it.

Hope all of you in the far north and northwest get a little warmer weather soon. I know that your winter is just beginning, but when I look at the national weather map it makes me glad I live in the deep south. Our winter is just about over in mid-February.
Gail in LA

Hi, In response to Kathy in FL, in the 1/6 newsletter - in cake decorating class, they told us to use pudding from pudding cups to fill cakes. The individual cups are just the right size for small cakes and come in a variety of flavors.
Karen in NoCA

This soup is a great way to use up leftovers. Hubby loves this soup and is a good way to get him to eat more veggies.

Cheesy Chicken & Veggie Soup
2 TB butter
2 TB of extra virgin olive oil
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
2 cups cooked chicken breasts, grilled is even better
1 cup frozen peas, corn & carrots veggie mix, or whatever you crave
8 oz Philadelphia cream cheese
1 can (14.75oz) creamed corn
1 cup milk
2+ tsp. of chicken bouillon cube, chopped fine (add as much or as little)
Couple dashes of black pepper
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
Chopped fresh parsley as garnish, optional

Melt butter and olive oil in a saucepan and add onions. Slightly brown the onions.
Remove onions to plate. Then stir fry the chicken breast slices till fully cooked. (or you can grill the chicken, cut it up into cubes).
Add veggie mix, then add the cooked onions back in. Stir together, then add in the cream cheese, stir until the cheese is melted. Add in the creamed corn and milk; sprinkle in the chopped chicken bouillon. Stir well to mix and bring to just boiling, turn off heat, and stir in the mozzarella and some black pepper. Taste test to see if you need more chicken bouillon or salt. Serve with crusty, warm bread.

Serves 4 (depending on portion size)

Note: I like my soup very thick. If you don’t want it thick then add a couple dashes of water or more milk to thin it out. The next time I ma ke this I will be adding chunks of cooked, cubed potato.

To Betty in ME - regarding the grape slicing trick - THANKS!! I did miss that little jewel and am thankful you added it again. I love grapes in salads and that is a great idea! Sue H. in NC

I was wondering if any of you great cooks have a T&T recipe for escarole and bean soup?
Thanks in advance JL in South Jersey

Nancy, Thank you for all that you do in helping the members by sharing the wonderful recipes. I love to cook and entertain so I am always trying the interesting recipes that I have saved from the newsletters and receiving so many compliments. What a great site!

Today is Ukrainian Christmas Eve and I put on a Ukrainian meal but I have a request that someone might help me with. I made cabbage rolls but they were not like my mother's which were made with sour cabbage leaves. Can anyone help me with a recipe for pickling the cabbage leaves? Like many others I wish that I had asked my mother but she passed away.
Vera / BC

I would like to thank Lucy, TX, for her Pineapple Surprise Crunch. I am the coordinator of the Senior Lunch Program. Whenever we have leftover fruit, one of us seniors take it home and recyles it into something scrumptious. I was getting tired of pineapple upside cake and your recipe sounds great.

And Nancy, thank you so very much telling us about Ditto's antics. With 6 cats, 4 of them kittens, there is never a dull moment. I just wish I knew what they were thinking about.
Karen, SW Arkansas

At the end of the 1-4-09 newsletter, Kay M Pelham - AL, asked again about the cheese cake from Goldblatts,

I found this website with an article and recipe about it on the web. I have not tried it, but I thought she might like to take a look at it.

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Nancy, I love Ditto's antics. I have 3 cats myself that keep me laughing. I am still looking for that elusive Marx Bagel recipe for their Tuna Salad. Since it is Kosher, I have tried to search Marx Tuna Salad, I've tried the words Kosher Tuna Salad, Jewish Tuna Salad and etc. Still no luck in finding it or even close to a copy-cat. I imagine what I see in it when I buy it and what the ingredients are in the recipes but not even a close match. I have been on this quest for about 8 years, lol If any one knows, please share.

Good Morning Nancy and All,

I was at a loss this morning, I usually read the newsletter at about 6 am, when I take my medicines. This morning the wire between the power and my laptop had snapped, it had been dodgey for months. My DH finally managed to repair it 20 minutes ago. Hip Hip Hurrah, he's a jolly good fellow etc!! I was so keen to get to my newsletter, I almost forgot to thank him.

At 62 years young, I wouldn't normally qualify for the flu jag, but due to illness I fit into the must have category. This is the first year that I have taken advantage of it and I'm so glad I did. The amount of people absent from work due to the current flu has reached mega proportions and has been reported in the press. If you are over 65 we don't pay for this innoculation in the U.K. Certain categories are also exempt from the age restriction. We may find that the age level will be dropped next year due to severe losses in the work force this year. I have lots of friends who qualify, but don't have it done, those same friends are now wishing that they had made a visit to their local surgery. My DH is 71 next week and even he missed his this year, he is a very generous person and likes to share everything including all his germs, a bit like our Debbie in Lubbock. So far I have been subjected to coughing, sneezing, etc by my DH, my two sons, my grandson, touch wood, I'm still OK. Please if you can have the jab, do. If you don't like injections - you'll like it even less being dragged down by this particular strain of flu.

I bought the GT Express about 6 weeks ago, it is still hidden in the back of a low kitchen cupboard. Billie in Fl your post in today's newsletter has given me the kick I needed to get it out, thank-you. In my defence, I have had quite a busy few weeks.

Re. the Aerogarden, if you don't want to go to the expense of buying the basic kit for planting your own seeds, about £17 here, you can buy thin pipe lagging foam with has already got a slit for pennies from your DIY store and reuse your plastic pots. If you do buy the plant your own, you get everything you will need, including nutrients and label tops for approx 72 pods. The only thing that I bought, as already mentioned was the non toxic glue (the same glue used in schools). There is also a relatively new full top of 72 already planted plugs, I bought trailing flowers for my hanging baskets. I hope to be able to re-use this again. These gardens are so good, like Billie, I would like to have another one.

Keep warm and healthy
Sylvia <in Brrr bitterly cold, snow covered Scotland>

I have been a member of this wonderful site for quite some time and like everyone else I have collected all kinds of recipes and have tried as many as possible but all of them I am sure will not happen - we have 6 grandchildren with 4 of them being girls so I am compiling grandma's recipe books for them with using the plasticed front folders - thankfully they all like to cook they are always calling me for something or other with knowing I probably have it or something close to it for them - My project this winter is to compile the books and they will each receive theirs for their birthday - Our sons youngest is a boy and if he takes after his father I probably will have to make him one also at some stage - when he comes to visit we always have to make sometime different - I save all received cards and use them to slip in a special recipe for one of the girls in their birthday cards - I have done that for many years - due to ages some have more than others but I understand they share them -
Hope fully they will do the same with the books

Nancy the 2 Tuesdays before Christmas in the Indy area we had ice. The first ice storm we had it took my husband 3 hours to get home from work. He had to make a stop on the way home at a McDonald's and went in and was coming out to go to his car and in the parking lot lost it and fell down on his back and did hit his head on the ice. He were so lucky that 2 men saw him go down and wanted to help him up and they did do it. The manager on duty wanted me to come and pick him up. My husband said that I couldn't do that because of my operation and that I had not been released to drive yet. Then the next Tuesday everything was fine in the morning but when he came home he was able to drive in our driveway but when he put the car in park it started to go down the driveway. Thank heavens for the emergency brake. When he got out of the car he could not stand up so he got on this hands and knees and crawled up the driveway.
He went back to work on Monday, 1/5 and everything was fine. Will during the night on Monday we had ice and etc come so he was not sure how long it would take him to get to work on Tuesday. And I was not sure what was going to happen during the day and I decided to make Chili in the Crock Pot just in case it took sometime getting home. I used the following recipe in the pot. I have decided that on Tuesday until March or later we are going to have a Crock Pot meal.

Quick & Easy Chili
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup onion, chopped
1, 1 lb., can kidney beans
1, 8 oz., can tomato sauce, I used a 15 oz. can
1 teaspoon salt or to your taste
to your taste black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder, more if you like it that way
1 bay leaf
½ to 1 teaspoon cumin

Stir and sauté ground beef and onions together until beef is well done. Add kidney beans, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, chili powder, bay leaf and cumin. Cover and cook slowly for 1 hour. I put the cook beef and rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker and cooked for about 7 to 9 hours. Served with sliced thin green onions, sour cream and cheese. Serves 2 dinner meals.

Everyone have a great day. Nancy and 4 legged associate take care, stay safe and warm.
Susie Indy

Looking for a good recipe for a left over ham bone and baby lima beans.
thanks, Sally in Pa

Re: Recycle Christmas Cards
I take the fronts off the cards and cut the edges with decorative scissors and store them in a large zip lock bag. When I get ready to wrap packages/gifts - I use plain color wrapping paper and use the cards to decorate the front of the packages. I adhere the cards with a glue stick. Works wonders and looks great and I don't have to use bows and ribbons.
