My aunt used to bring it to all are family reunions, 50 years ago or so. All I know is it had pork and beans,onions, salad dressing (mayo or Miracle Whip. It had other things but I don't know what. Anyone else ever had it? It may have just been a "southern thang". I live in Arkansas and we were are sharecropper families back then.

I failed to keep the name of the individual, who wanted to know if butter flavored Wesson oil is still sold. It is a product of Konagrra Food Service, and it is not a product that they list on their web site, which is www.conagrafoodservice.com they do list Wesson® Move Over Butter. It is described as delivers rich, buttery flavor without the sticking and spattering associated with butter. Made from 100% vegetable oil with added lecithin to provide maximum release. I assume they stopped making the butter flavored Wesson oil in an effort to make a healthier product.

I would like to hear from your readers about bread making.
I have been reading about facilitating the rising of frozen or refrigerated bread dough in one's slow cooker. Also, have been reading a cookbook author who recommends refrigerating the dough at least 8 hrs. or overnight before baking. There is no kneading required in these recipes.

I am 93 years old and still love to cook. I have been reading your column almost since it's inception. It is still the first thing I look for in my email.

I don’t know why “cornbread” is in this title because there isn’t any in this cake. This is sooo good. I have not tried it with the Splenda measurements, but am going to try that next time. A friend told me that you could substitute.
Jane Ann in Alabama

Sweet Georgia Cornbread Cake

1 cup sugar(1/2 cup Splenda)
1 cup brown sugar(1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend)
4 eggs beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pecans, very finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.

Lightly grease and flour 9 by 13 baking dish. Stir together sugar, brown sugar, eggs and oil in a medium bowl until smooth. Stir in flour and vanilla. Add pecans and stir until evenly mixed.

Spoon into prepared pan and bake 25 minutes to 30 minutes. Start checking after 20 minutes.

I had an interesting assortment of email today. There were the current emails and some emails that have not arrived from the past. Some emails finally arrived from 2 years ago. It is taking me some time to sort through them but some may be the emails you all have said haven't gotten. Cyberspace can lose the email but not often for a couple of years, LOL.

This recipe brings back wonderful memories from childhood, as we had a rhubarb patch in our back yard. My mom was an amazing cook and encouraged my sister and I to help and learn. My dad never ate a meal prepared by my mom without complimenting her on what she had prepared. She did everything from scratch most of her life.

Years ago I got a recipe from back of Campbell's Cream of Celery soup for a Salmon Casserole. It used that soup, canned salmon, several other ingredients, but NO eggs. I lost the little scrap of paper and can't find the recipe anywhere. I hope you can help me.
Thanx, Maria

I have a question for Bren in N Louisiana. The filling for the pineapple cream pie. The filling has raw eggs in it shouldn't it be cooked some before being put into pie shell?
It was in April 5 newsletter.
Thanks; Judy in Montana

For Karen about the pressure cooker gasket maybe if there are any older hardware stores in your area, take the lid and the number from the bottom of the cooker (should be one there) and sometimes, the older ones still have parts even if it has been discontinued. I have had luck at older Ace and other local hardware stores . Good luck.

Hi Nancy, first of all thanks so much for your wonderful newsletter. I also love the kitty stories. My husband fishes quite a bit so I have lots of fish to cook. I made it a new way tonight and it was so so good. Here is my recipe.The taste is wonderful and the sun dried tomatoes and parmesan makes this dish fit for company also. I have never made it this way and I can guarantee it is wonderful. I hope all enjoy it. By the way I saw a large plastic container of sun dried tomatoes at Costco and it was about nine dollars. Great buy. Chris from California.

Baked Cod with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Depending on how much fish you are baking at a time you can increase the ingredients. I used two fillets because it was just for my husband.

2 large cod fillets
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. Worchester sauce
1/2 Tsp. Garlic Garni If you don’t have you can use garlic powder to your liking
Sun dried tomatoes ( wash oil off) use as many as you wish. I put about six pieces on each fish fillet.
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Mix all into a paste . Put fish in pam sprayed dish and spread the paste on top. Put sun dried tomatoes on top and sprinkle parmesan over. Bake 15 minutes at 350 or until flaky.

Celery Mashed Potatoes

3 large ribs celery (finely diced)
3 quarts water
8 ounces Yukon Gold potatoes
1 tsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp non-fat buttermilk
2 Tbsp 2% milk
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Spray a pan with oil and place the celery in the pan. Place the pan over medium heat.

When the pan heats up and the celery begins to sizzle reduce the heat to medium low and cover. Cook the celery for about 20 minutes. Toss frequently. Place the water in a large stock pot over high heat.

Quarter the potatoes and add to the stock pot. Cover with water by about an inch. Bring to boil and then reduce heat until the water is simmering. Cook the potatoes about 15 – 20 minutes until slightly soft in the middle. They should give when squeezed. Remove from heat and drain water. Place the butter, buttermilk, milk, salt and celery in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add the celery mixture to the potatoes and mash potatoes until creamy.

NOTE: Be careful because over mashing will result in pasty potatoes. Add ground black pepper to taste and serve. This recipe does not make very good leftovers

This my version of green bean casserole
with the regular recipe add 1 pound of cooked hamburger and 2-3 potatoes diced. It makes it a great meal.

I am a LONG time subscriber to the newsletter, and look forward to it. How about pulling a few recipes from the archives when you are short on recipes ? Some are so good a repeat would be welcome.

I often send a request for something, but have not submitted many recipes so today I will send one of my mother-in-laws salad dressings.

Salad Dressing

1 can tomato soup
1 can sugar ( use soup can for measure)
1/2 can vinegar
1/2 can oil
2 Tbs Heinz 57 sauce ( don't leave this out)
1 small onion - quartered

Place everything except onion in blender. Blend until creamy and light in color. Add onion and blend a few spins. You want to be able to see a few small pieces of the onion. Place in quart jar and refrigerate. This will keep several weeks.

Swiss Steak

Round steak or cube steaks
1 can condensed cream of celery soup
1 small can tomato sauce
1 (14 ounce)can sliced carrots

Brown meat in a little oil till no longer pink. Drain all grease. Remove from skillet and set aside. Open the cream of celery and tomato sauce. Pour in the slillet and blend. It takes a few minutes to get it totally blended, but will end up a nice orangish color. Add meat back to skillet. I place the pieces in the sauce then flip them over so both sides are coated. Now add the drained carrots and stir them around in the sauce. Simmer until meat is tender, usually around 15-30 minutes.
I like to have baked potatoes with this and spoon a little of the sauce on my potato.
Even people not real fond of carrots have loved this when I have served it.
