In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups whole cashews, 1/8 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, ½ teaspoon salt, 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper, and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce. (Reduce the salt, if your cashews have already been salted.) Spread in a lightly greased 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch Pyrex dish or baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice during baking. (Bake only about 8 minutes, if your cashews have already been roasted.) Spread cashews on waxed paper to cool. Sprinkle cooled nuts with ½ tablespoon sugar. Pour into a nice serving bowl and serve when desired. You may store these for a couple of weeks in a jar with a screw-on lid, or in a zip-lock bag. Enjoy!!!

In a large mixing bowl, place 3 egg whites, ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract, and a dash of salt. Beat on high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continually beating until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spoon the mixture into a zip-lock plastic bag. Snip one bottom corner of the bag to make a hole that is 1-inch across. Pipe mixture into 1 ¼-inch mounds onto a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Bake at 200 degrees (F) for 2 hours. Remove from oven and cool completely (about 30 minutes). When meringue mounds are cooled completely, place 4 ounces of milk chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler. Bring the water below to a boil and stir chocolate constantly until melted. Turn off heat. Spread a thin layer of melted milk chocolate onto half of the flat sides of the meringue mounds. Gently press flat sides of remaining half of meringue rounds onto chocolate-covered side of meringue mounds. Let stand until chocolate is set (about an hour). Place Chocolate-Filled Meringue Sandwich Cookies on a nice serving tray. These are a great treat for a party. With the Playoffs and Super Bowl games coming up, this is a sweet treat that you might like to serve. It is quick, easy, and impressive. It is wonderful for any get-together or just for a comfort snack at home. Enjoy!!!

In a deep pot, melt 1 stick butter. Add a 15-oz. can tomato sauce, 2 oz. hot sauce, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, and ¼ teaspoon onion powder. Stir until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes. You may continue simmering, up to 1 hour for a more intense taste. This sauce is perfect with Super Bowl Boneless Hot Wings, which will be my next upload! Enjoy!!!

In a large skillet, saute smoked sausage over medium-high heat, until browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 small chopped onion, ¼ cup diced celery, 1 large chopped green pepper, and 2 coves minced garlic. Saute 2 to 3 minutes. Add 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes, 14.5-oz. can chicken broth, 1 ¾ teaspoons Cajun seasoning, and ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper. Bring to a boil, and stir in ¾ cup uncooked long-grain white rice. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 25 to 30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Stir in 1 pound uncooked shrimp. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until shrimp turns pink and opaque. Ladle immediately into serving bowl, and serve. I served my Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya with freshly-made Hot Water Corn Fritters. Delicious! I hope you enjoy this recipe! -

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine 8-oz. cream cheese, 1 cup chopped cooked chicken, ½ cup chopped pecans, ¼ cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons chutney, and 1 tablespoon curry powder. Stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Form into a ball and place on a serving dish. (You may roll in extra chopped pecans, if you choose.) Serve with assorted crackers. This is a wholesome appetizer/snack that I think you will enjoy. It is a great cheese ball to serve at a party, and with the Super Bowl and other sporting events coming up, a lot of you are looking for new snacks that are hearty and healthy. I think you will really like this one! --Betty
