TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: A recipe for oyster lovers
I have been looking through some old recipe books. I was looking at Gene’s mom’s cookbook. It is a Clark County Extension book. It’s fun seeing some of the women who we knew when I was really young.

TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: Bake, kabob chicken nuggets for a healthy change
I think we all love chicken nuggets. But to fry them is messy and isn’t real good for you.
I like this recipe because you can bake them or make kabobs. Add your veggies. They can be fried if you want.
GRAPE SENSE: The color of summer shines in Provence Rosé
If you could be a super hero, mythical character or fictional leader, who would you choose?
Superman? A Mutant Ninja Turtle? Or maybe Jean ValJean?
I’d be the Pied Piper of Provence, France, and lead you to dry, French Rosé wine.

TRIED ’N’ TRUE: Quick, sweet treat for summer days or nights

Tried ‘n’ True: A recipe for when the kids get home from school
I used this recipe when the kids got home from school. They were always hungry.
When I was little we lived next door to a lady we called Grandma Byrd. She was so sweet. Sometimes we would stop at her house when we got off the bus and then walk home. I guess everyone has eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I have a feeling it’s going to be hot this summer. This punch is cooling. I don’t remember where this recipe comes from, but it makes a good punch for weddings, baby showers, etc. Make it for any special occasion or just for the family. I like it as a slush.
Tried ’n’ True: Grandmother Rosa’s Tuna Crunch Casserole
This recipe comes from my Grandmother Rosa. She’s mom’s mother. It seems like she liked tuna. I do, too. My brothers and sisters didn’t. So when I visited her by myself, she made this. The recipe card is all yellow now and kind of hard to read — but I know it by heart. I don’t have many of her recipes. Sure do enjoy the ones I have.

TRIED 'N’ TRUE: Eat it plain, grilled, on salads, in this recipe
I guess you could call me a pineapple junkie. Of course I am a junkie for other fruit, also. Back in the ’80s, we went to Hawaii. Gene decided he would take home some pineapples. He bought 12 boxes (six pineapples each). He never does anything in a small way.
TRIED 'N' TRUE: A sweet doughnut for an after-school snack
When we were young, mother would fix doughnuts for an after-school snack. I’ve made this one and another that takes yeast and takes a while to rise.
