Subject: HOT DOG SAUCE
Trying to find one from Kingston NY-A drive-in named Jim And Tonys was there and had a hot dog sauce.
Its claimed that Tony went to his grave with it(the _ _ _ _ _ _ _!).Hamburger based-garlic-onion-oregano+ his secrets.
I have some such as Dallas Hot Weiners but it is Greek (good) but not the same.
Thanks so much.
I tried, but there is just nothing on the web at all about Jim and Tony’s except a couple of bowling team scores from 1962 in “The Kingston Daily Freeman”.
The Kingston Daily Freeman, Kingston, N. Y., Tuesday Evening, January 9,1962
I’ll post this on my site in case a reader can help.

Subject: Recipe for Magic Mommy Brownies
Back in the late '70s (?) and through the 1980s, you could find these
delectable, moist brownies in health food stores. The ingredients listed
carob - but I can't recall whether carob replaced chocolate or supplemented
They haven't been around in years, but I'd like to find out the recipe if
anyone has it or has tried reverse-engineering it. Short of that, I would
be curious to hear who made them and what happened?
I could not find anything other than just a couple of brief mentions of
these. No recipes, no history, nothing. There was a "Magic Mommy Brownies,
Inc." registered in New Jersey about 10 years ago, but I could find nothing
more about it. There was a small company named "Magic Mommy" in New York
in the 1975 - 1980 timespan that was involved in a legal case, but I could
find no indication that it made brownies. I suspect that this brownie maker
was a small business that had a good product and started out well, but failed
for one reason or another.
I'll post this on my site. Perhaps someone knows something and will respond.

Subject: Peppermint Stick Candy
I am looking for a recipe for Peppermint Sticks. You know, the ones that melt in your mouth and you have to
buy because no one seems to have the recipe? They are made by places like Bob's and King Leo and Mast Store in NC...
but I would love to make some of my own! I have been searching for the recipe but I've had no luck.
Any chance you might know a thing or two about them?
In 2007, I searched for a recipe for making peppermint puffs like King Leo sells. I had no success.
I had no better success today searching for the soft peppermint sticks that you describe. Sorry.
There are several requests on message boards for a recipe to make these at home, but no one has been able
to locate a recipe.
This may be one of those commercial products that simply cannot be made in the home environment.
It may require a special machine to mix enough air with the candy to make it soft when it sets.
