Maybe this will encourage some of you: Dont give up on praying for your special needs children! What may seem impossible, isn't with the Lord!
I have been praying that my dd would have a hunger for the Lord and she is diving into the scriptures. I have prayed that she would find a need to learn, and she is starting to do more with her school work. I have prayed for healing, and though she hasn't been healed completely she has been growing by leaps and bounds, learning to look to God as her help in times of need. It's like she is finally understanding and applying some of what she has been taught to her heart. I prayed for a friend, and God had some friends who seem to have compassion and understanding toward her fears of people with her selective mutism. Don't give up! God does and will provide for the needs of our children and He is one who forms the hearts of all including our children!

I have posted many times about the Feingold Program.

For those not familiar with it, by removing all the petroleum (crude oil - like what goes in your car) from my son's diet, he lost all his ADHD symptoms. It seems that petroleum in food can cause people to lose self-control. The symptoms include melt-downs, over-the-top emotions, constantly needing to move (like the contantly tapping foot, etc), hitting, biting, inability to respond correctly to lovingly administrated Biblical discipline. For some people, even a miniscule amount of petroleum is enough to cause a huge reaction.

Removing petroleum from the diet can cause a real change in many people. My dh even got a raise and a promotion after being on the Feingold Programm for 6 weeks. Even better, he learned how to sit still and how to deal responsibly with frustration. How much better for my children to learn this at a young age!

But petroleum can be hidden in foods. It is in most artificial flavors, artificial colors, and the preservatives BHA, BHT, and TBHQ. But those don't always have to be listed on the ingredient list. So avoiding them can be difficult.

The Feingold Association has volunteers who contact manufacturers and find out how their products are made. They make sure that baked products aren't made on pans sprayed with a pan spray that is preserved with a petrol-chemical. They make sure the packaging isn't sprayed with a preservative that will leech into the food. All the foods they find to be "safe" - ie. petroleum-free - they list in their Shopping Guide. That Shopping Guide is published and made available to all association members.

You can read more about the Program at http://www.feingold.org

If you are interested in joining the Association and trying the Feingold Program for yourself but are unable to afford the membership fee, a Feingold mom (not me) is giving away a one year membership on her blog. You can read here to find out how to be entered to win: http://allnaturalmomof3.blogspot.com/

If you have any questions about Feingold, please feel free to pm me!

This article may have some things you don't agree with (isn't written really from a Christian point of view).

I wonder, though, what you wish someone had told you about parenting a special needs child. It also has some interesting nuggets like: ". A study released a couple of years ago found that autism moms have stress levels similar to combat soldiers."

What would you change or add or agree with or disagree with?

I believe you were the one who asked me if I had a recipe for this. Tony's mom has a great one:

Prosciutto Cheese Bread

*From Fran's Files

1 Package (2 1/2 Teaspoons) Active Dry Yeast
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 1/2 Cups All-purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Both Salt And Black Pepper
4 Ounces Prosciutto, Cut Into Small Dice
2 Ounces Provolone, Cut Into Small Dice
3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese


Sprinkle the yeast over a cup of warm water and let sit until bubbly, about 5 minutes. Add the oil, flour, salt and pepper, and mix with a wooden spoon until a workable dough has been formed. Knead by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes until you have created a smooth dough. If the dough seems sticky as you are kneading it, add a little more flour. Oil a large bowl twice the size of the bread, and place the dough in the bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm spot until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.

Oil a baking sheet, and place the dough in the center. Flatten the dough with your hands, and spread the meat and cheese over the top. Fold the dough over to cover the meat and cheese, and then flatten and fold the dough over a few times with your hands to distribute the ingredients throughout the bread.

To shape, either form the dough into a large oval shape, or cut the dough into two pieces, roll each into a 24 inch rope, and loosely twist the ropes together, sealing the ends together so you have one large ring. Cover with plastic wrap once more, and let sit to rise until doubled once more, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the bread for 30 minutes, or until it is a nice golden brown in color. Cool on a wire rack, and then slice when still slightly warm.

Variation: You can brush the bread with a glaze of 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon of water to give the bread a shiny surface.

Blessings,
Tammi

My husband loves cabbage and corned beef. The smell in my kitchen right now is divine. Here's a very easy recipe.

4 slices bacon
4 tbl butter
1 head cabbage, coursely chopped
sald and pepper to taste
1 can corned beef (I used 1 lb. fresh from deli, sliced thin)

cook bacon in large pot over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Melt the butter in pot with bacon grease. Add cabbage and about 1/3 cup water, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes. Chop bacon into small pieces. Add bacon and beef and cook an additional five minutes or until cabbage is cooked to desired doneness.

Impossibly Easy Italian Chicken Pie

Satisfy your craving for Pizza with an easy Italian-style chicken pie. It's loaded with cheese and authentic Italian seasonings. Instead of basil and oregano you can use 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. The recipe comes from BettyCrocker.com. Note: This recipe can be frozen and reheated.
6 servings
1 hour 10 minutes 25 mins prep
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups cut-up cooked chicken
1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (5 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1/2 cup original Bisquick baking mix
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Grease 9-inch pie plate.
3. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese in pie plate.
4. Mix chicken, 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, the oregano, basil, garlic powder and tomato paste; Spoon over Parmesan cheese.
5. Stir Bisquick mix, milk, pepper and eggs until blended, Pour over chicken mixture.
6. Bake 35 minutes.
7. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
8. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
9. Cool 5 minutes.
10. To Freeze: Freeze serving size in a rigid container. Label and Freeze.
11.To Reheat: Remove it from container, put it in a proper fitting dish, leave it uncovered, Bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes(The time would have to be adjusted for how much you are reheating to make sure it is heated through).

First made this 8-14-06. I forgot to top it with mozzarella. But decided that could be done when we ate it again for leftovers.
It was good. I would add some salt to the egg mixture though.

Perhaps this has already been discussed....
I am looking for a recipe for canned spaghetti and pizza sauce. My problem with canning spaghetti sauce is that it's never as thick as the store's. We get spoiled with the Ragu. Very Happy

Also, when canning salsa, are you supposed to peel the tomatoes first? I have not canned any for a few years and I can't remember.

Thanks.

For those folks that want to eat all natural but would also like to cut some fat and calories here is a neat trick for high fat salad dressings...

To make 1 cup of dressing you usually you 2/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup vinegar (the normal proportion of oil to vinegar is 2:1). Instead use 1/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup vinegar and 1/3 cup chicken stock. It works pretty good.

I do cheat a bit and I use Penzeys Italian Dressing mix. I take 1 TBSP mix + 1 Tbsp water and let it sit for about 5 minutes then I add the vinegar and stock and shake then add the oil and shake.

If I were to make it be hand I would take the vinegar, add salt, pepper and some dijon or grainy mustard (it helps emulsify the dressing), the herbs of my choices (maybe some garlic and onion powder) and a little bit of sugar or honey. You can actually cut back on the amount of sugar to balance the vinegar when you are using the stock.

What a surprise to see a post started by me that... was from last year!

Just to let you know what the idea was... I think I have too many cookbooks and I suggested that anyone who wanted to join in to pick ONE cookbook from their shelf and try out new recipes from it. For me, that means that after I've gone through the book and picked out the winners, I can get rid of the book!

And any 'winners' of recipes were supposed to be shared.

So if this is something you'd like to do, then just decide which cookbook your going to go through first,let us know the name in case we've got the same book! and when you get a good recipe, come back and post it for us! It'll save us some work.

Char in MO thought this sounded interesting, so I figured I'd post it.

UPSIDE DOWN PIZZA

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 jar (14 oz) spaghetti sauce (or homemade) Smile
2 cups (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the spaghetti sauce. Cover and simmer until heated through. Pour into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.

In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, oil, flour, and salt; cover and process until smooth. Pour over cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 12 servings.

I believe this is a Taste of Home recipe. You can add any other vegetables that you like as well.

A few weeks ago, there were a couple of recipes for Crockpot Mac n Cheese. I was wanting to try one this week. Tuesday is crockpot day, as we are gone 8 hours. My question - Could I put in the macaroni dry (uncooked), add extra milk, and let the macaroni cook all day? If so, how much extra milk do you think I would have to add? If you don't think this will work, then we will have it another day. My kids love mac n cheese.

Thanks.

A couple of the ladies asked for this recipe, so here it is. I have not tried this, so I can give no recommendation. If any of you does try it, please post how it was.

3 1/3 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 c. vegetable shortening
1 1/3 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 c. applesauce
1 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 (2 1/2 inch) wide-mouth canning jars with a paper towel dipped in shortening.

In mixing bowl, beat all ingredients together until combined. Pour batter into a measuring cup with a spout; pour the batter neatly into grease jars. Fill jars 1/2 full. Place the filled jars on the sheet tray and bake on center rack of oven for 45 minutes. When done, the top of the cake will spring back when pressed with a finger and sides will have come away from jar. Remove from oven and let cool 10-15 minutes. Cake wil still be warm, but not hot. Place a circle of waxed paper on top of jar and seal with lid. Pleace carefully so as not to break glass.

It doesn't get any simpler than this. My sons love for me to make homemade chicken noodle soup, and all they want in it is chicken and noodles.

I cut up some chicken breasts, throw in some chicken bouillon and 1 lb. of pasta (any type). In this batch I used about 20 cups of water, salt and pepper.

I think this is my favoite meat. Fresh Salmon is a bit expensive here, so we don't eat it all the time; that probably makes it more special.

I coat the holder (can't remember what that gadget is called) with some type of oil so that the fish won't stick. Lay out the fillets and season with salt and pepper. I then put some butter down on the fish. You can use lemon juice or just slice the lemons and put them right on the fish. Dill is also a good spice to lay on salmon.

I lay it right on the coals for 30-45 minutes; depends on the thickness of the fish. I actually propped the holder up on the baking potatoes that are sitting underneath.

We're having this tonight with the potatoes loaded and green beans.

I had a recipe ( I think from an old LIght and Tasty) that I canNOT find anywhere. I know it made a lot and had a dash of cinammon. Does anyone have one like this? It's been so long since I did it, I really can't remember anything else.

Here is the pie recipe I promised several days ago. We're finally recovering from a weekend of non-stop running around...I think!
Irish Apple Shortbread Pie

Shortbread Crust:
2 C. Sifted all-purpose flour
&frac12; C. sugar
&frac14; tsp salt
&frac34; C. well-chilled butter, cut into &frac12;” pieces
2 egg yolks, beaten to blend

Filling:
1 &frac14; lbs Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and cut into &frac14;” slices (I have used Granny Smiths, Fuji’s and/or Galas just fine)
&frac14; C. firmly packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
&frac12; tsp cinnamon
Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
Whipped cream (or Cool Whip or something like that…whipped cream is awfully good, though!)

For Crust:
Position rack in center of over, place heavy baking sheet on rack; preheat oven to 400 F.
Blend flour, sugar, and salt in processor (I usually just do all this by hand). Cut in butter until coarse meal forms. Drizzle yolks over surface and mix till crumbs form. Do not form ball. Pat &frac34; of mixture over bottom and up sides of 8” tart pan with removable sides (I use just my regular tart pan with no trouble).

For Filling:
Mix apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl. Turn apples into crust. Scatter remaining crumb mixture over top. Set pie on baking sheet in oven and bake 15 min. Reduce heat to 350 F. and bake until top is light brown and filling with bubbles, about 20 min. Cool 30 min. Dollop with whipped cream and serve.


Always in Him,
Vicki

Carrot-Broccoli Soup

2 tablespoons finely minced onion
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 tablespoons flour
1 ? teaspoons salt
2 cups milk
4 cups canned chicken broth (broth made with bullion cubes makes it too salty)
10 oz package chopped broccoli (or 2 cups fresh chopped broccoli)
2 cups grated carrots

Cook broccoli and carrots in chicken broth until just tender. Set aside. Saute onion in butter. Add flour and salt. Mix to smooth past. Gradually add milk and just bring to a boil to thicken. When ready to serve blend broth mixture with milk micture and reheatif needed. Be careful not to boil as soup will separate and not look as attractive. It will still taste good though.

My husband split it open for me and I realize that I'm not sure what to do with it. Do I scoop the meat out and dry it, or not? Anyone know what the shelf life of raw coconut? Do I need to refrigerate it?

Thanks!

Lots of the internet recipes call for cornstarch but then some of them said it is bad to use that and to use a prepared thickener. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm afraid I won't be able to find the jell stuff this time of year.

We have had mushroom soup in bread bowls at restaurants and it is so yummy. I tried to make some at home and it was not nearly as good. It tasted like white sauce with mushrooms floating around. The flavor from the mushrooms did not get into the white sauce very well. Anyone have a good mushroom soup recipe?
