DEAR READERS:    
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:  Saturday nights are the place to be, with so much talent our audiences are getting bigger each week. Last week was no different with our singers: TOM FINN doing "Stand By Me" and That's Amore" with wife SARA FINN. Then FRED MILLER with "Blue Skies" and "S'Wonderful". LINDSAY OUELLETTE was there to sing "As Time Goes By" and On The Street Where You Live". He also brought along JEAN SORF who did "If He Walked Into My Life Today" and "Sway" with our next singer on Maracas, RAFE CORRELL who sang "You Are So Beautiful" with "So Beautiful To Me" and "Skylark". The LORRETTA SIANI, who we've not seen in months, came looking wonderful and sounder great too, singing "Goodie Goodie" and "Embraceable You". Next we had ALAN JON with "Soon It's Gonna Rain" and by request, "Jackie". Then DOUG GRAHAM sang "Romantic Notion" but had to leave before his 2nd song. But PAT MCCANN was back for two weeks in a row, and sang "How Little We Now" and "Ordinary People". Also there for a 2nd week in a row was NONI LAMBERTSON how sang "Till There Was You" and by request "More Than You Know". After her was JACI DAVIS singing "My Funny Valentine" and by request "Maybe This Time". Her singing BFF was next, MELBA MILLER, who sang "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" and "It Could Happen To You". MARGE HARRIS did "Old Cape Code" and then "The Night The Invented Champagne" and then LARRY HARRIS with "That's Life" and together by request, they sang "Sentimental Journey". TONY DESIENA took a break to sing "When I Fall In Love" and that was it. But in honor of having Jean Sorf with us, which is hard for her to get out on a Saturday, I want to share this clip of her in the finals of PALM SPRINGS SINGS doing "I've Got You Under My Skin". 

 
ONCE AGAIN, ART AND JOHN ARE REQUESTING YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS SO THEY ARE PREPARED FOR EVERYONE AND WANT TO MAKE YOUR VISIT THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER...   SPEAKING OF
BEST 
 Thank you everyone. See you next Saturday.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
  
MADE IN A MUG DESERT #2
#3 next week 

MADE IN A MUG - YES I SAID MUG...
in the Microwave no less!
UPSIDE DOWN MUG CHEESECAKE 

INGREDIENTS:
2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons fat-free egg product
1 1/2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon crushed graham crackers
Additional toppings, if desired (fresh berries, whipped cream, caramel sauce)

DIRECTIONS: 
Spray bottom of microwavable mug (about 12 oz) with cooking spray. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, egg product and whipping cream with whisk until smooth; add sugar, flour and lemon peel, and mix well.
Pour batter into mug. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 minute 30 seconds, checking and adding an additional 10 to 20 seconds as necessary, until edge slightly pulls away from mug and top is nearly set (cheesecake center may look glossy); cool 10 minutes. Refrigerate until cool, at least 2 hours or overnight.
To serve, carefully run knife around edge of cheesecake to loosen; turn onto small plate. Top with crushed graham crackers. Serve with additional toppings, as desired.
