Raspberry Jam

"I strain half of the raspberry mixture before adding the pectin. It makes for less seeds in the final jam. Then I take the strained pulp, add a cup or two or water (depending on the amount of pulp), and heat it on the stove top to extract as much raspberry flavoring as possible. Strain the mixture and measure it--add cup for cup of sugar. Return to the heat and simmer until thickened and reduced: raspberry syrup! Stores great in the fridge for 3-4 weeks."

"A note to Dinowife --- crock pots don't allow for great steam escape. You won't be able to cook down to a thick sauce unless you uncover the crock and encourage the water to evaporate! There are other "old fashion" recipes for beans that have been modified for the crock pot --- with 13 cups of water, this one isn't really suitable."

Cheesy Chicken Casserole

"This is our go-to topping for casseroles. The version my mom made growing up (and the "tradition" I continue) calls for cubed, cooked chicken, fresh broccoli, a can of condensed cheese or cream of chicken soup, and half a soup can of milk. We mix the latter together in a casserole dish, mix up the Bisquick topping, and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. I requested this for my birthday dinner throughout Junior High and High School. I never get tired of it!"
