I found this recipe in an old church cookbook of my grandmother's when I as in 4-H. With its combination of ingredients and spices, it has a unique flavor that receives rave reviews when we fix it for family and friends.
"Whether I'm fixing cod fillets or my husband's catch of the day, this batter makes the fish fry up golden and crispy," says Nancy Johnson, field editor from Connersville, Indiana. "Club soda gives it a different twist...and the sweet and zippy sauce complements the fish nicely."
A FRIEND shared this recipe with me many years ago.
My son-in-law loves these lamb shanks as part of a hearty meal with baked potatoes, a hot vegetable and fresh fruit salad. Of course, I include mint jelly on the side.

You'll really like this recipe if you favor crab and shrimp. It's an old family favorite, and it tastes gourmet even though it's so easy to make. All my friends love it!

This is a wonderful, cheesy recipe that melts in your mouth, says Susan Jerrott, Bedford, Nova Scotia. I love this traditional Canadian meal. It certainly has a special feel; the sauce is a fantastic complement to steak.
My mother created delicious dishes based on whatever was in the refrigerator or on the shelf. This recipe is one she tried and kept, and it became our traditional Sunday dinner. She increased the ingredients proportionately to the number of people she invited after church...usually all the aunts, uncles and cousins.
