"Hot Lips" Mexican Rice
Betty Poulin

  • 1 c. rice
  • 1pkg chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 c. onion, chopped
  • 1 sm. can green chilies, chopped
  • 1/2 c. celery, chopped
  • 2/3 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 can mushroom soup
  • 1 sm. jar Cheese Whiz

Cook the rice first (1 c. rice, 2 c. water.) Pour boiling water over broccoli to thaw. Saute onion and celery in butter. Combine all ingredients in casserole. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. "Good with Tipsy Chicken"

"Tipsy" Barbecued Chicken
Betty Poulin

  • 10-12 pieces of chicken thighs and drumsticks
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. bourbon
  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. powdered ginger

Marinate chicken at least 2 hours in sauce made by combining all the remaining ingredients and cooking them to the boiling point. Spoon marinade out of pan and brush over chicken as it barbecues ... 40 minutes or so. Chicken looks "fowl" until it is cooked. Great with potato salad or a hot rice dish.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cake
Natalie H. Johnson

  • 4 c. rhubarb
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 3-oz. box strawberry jello
  • 2 c. Jiffy yellow or white cake mix
  • 1 c. cold water
  • 5 Tbsp. melted oleo or butter

Grease 6 X 9" pan. (I use pyrex.) Put fresh or frozen rhubarb in pan, sprinkle with sugar, then jello. Over all this sprinkle white or yello cake mix (dry). Pour over this the water. Then drizzle melted oleo over the top. DO NOT MIX ANY OF THESE INGREDIENTS. Bake in 350 oven for about 1 hour. Serve hot or cold with or without whipped cream.
