  Subject: Cheeseburger Meatloaf

  I am looking for a cheeseburger meatloaf recipe that had carnation 
  milk and had American cheese slices in the middle of it. It was in 
  an old carnation milk recipe booklet.  Can you help? 


Gosh ?, I don't know. There's one that you make in a crockpot at this website, with pictures:

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

I found the one below on an old recipe CD, but there were no instructions with it, just the ingredient list.


  Cheeseburger  Meatloaf

   Ingredients : 
   1 1/2 lbs. ground chuck
   1/2 c. fine cracker crumbs
   1 egg, beaten
   1/4 green pepper, chopped
   1/4 tsp. dried basil leaves
   1 can (5 1/3 oz.) evaporated milk
   1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
   1/4 c. onion, chopped
   3/4 tsp. salt
   2 slices of American cheese

   Preparation : 


Thanks to the questioner for sending back the directions!

Again, thanks for the ingredient list.  By the way, the directions I have 
always used called for combining everything except the cheeses.  Then you 
put the slices in the bottom of a waxed paper lined loaf pan.  Put in half 
your meat mixture.  Sprinkle the shredded cheese on it.  Finish with the 
remainder of the meat mixture.  Bake about 350 degrees about an hour.  
Remove from oven and let set about 10-15 minutes before turning it out.  
Remove paper and slice.  Leftovers can be rewarmed or take the leftover 
loaf from refrigerator and slice about 1/2 inch thick or the thickness you 
like your hamburgers.  Pan saute the slices and put on hamburger buns.  
They are almost better this way than as a meatloaf.

  Dear uncle Phaedrus. 
  There's a traditional recipe of wedding cake in England that lasts 
  more than 25 years.please send send me the recipe Rgds.Pedro

Hello Pedro,

Well, the tradional wedding cake in England is a fruit cake with lots of brandy. I found no mention of it lasting 25 years, but if it's anything like American fruit cake, it could well last into the next millenium. Below are three recipes. The first is an English fruit cake recipe without brandy and the next two are for the traditional English wedding cake with brandy.


  English Fruit Cake

  1 lb. butter 
  2 tablespoons milk 
  1 lb. light brown sugar 
  3 lbs. currants 
  9 eggs 
  2 lbs. raisins, seeded and finely chopped 
  1 lb. flour  
  2 teaspoons mace 
  1/2 lb. almonds, blanched and shredded 
  2 teaspoons cinnamon  
  1 teaspoon soda 
  1 lb. citron, thinly sliced and cut in strips 

  Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, and beat thoroughly. Separate 
  yolks from whites of eggs; beat yolks until thick and lemon-colored, 
  whites until stiff and dry, and add to first mixture. Then add milk, 
  fruit, nuts, and flour mixed and sifted with mace, cinnamon, and soda. 
  Put in buttered deep pans, cover with buttered paper, steam three hours, 
  and bake one and one half hours in a slow oven, or bake four hours in a 
  very slow oven. Rich fruit cake is always more satisfactory when done if 
  the cooking is accomplished by steaming. 
  Wedding Cake I

  1 lb. butter  
  1/2 teaspoon clove 
  1 lb. sugar  
  3 lbs. raisins, seeded and cut in pieces 
  12 eggs  
  1 lb. flour  
  1 lb. currants 
  2 teaspoons cinnamon  
  1 lb. citron, thinly sliced and cut in strips 
  Nutmeg,  Allspice, Mace, 3/4 teaspoon each  
  1 lb. figs, finely chopped 
  1/4 cup brandy 
  2 tablespoons lemon juice 

  Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, and beat thoroughly. Separate 
  yolks from whites of eggs, beat yolks until thick and lemon-colored, 
  whites until stiff and dry, and add to first mixture. Add flour (excepting 
  one-third cup, which should be reserved to dredge fruit) mixed and sifted 
  with spices, brandy, and lemon juice. Then add fruit, except citron, 
  dredged with reserved flour. Dredge citron with flour and put in layers 
  between cake mixture when putting in the pan. 
  Bake same as English Fruit Cake. 
  Wedding Cake II

  1 lb. butter 
  3 lbs. raisins, seeded and cut in pieces 
  1 lb. brown sugar  
  12 eggs 
  2 lbs. Sultana raisins 
  1 cup molasses 
  1 1/2 lbs. citron, thinly sliced and cut in strips 
  1 lb. flour  
  4 teaspoons cinnamon 
  1 lb. currants 
  4 teaspoons allspice 
  1/2 preserved lemon rind 
  1 1/2 teaspoons mace 
  1/2 preserved orange rind 
  1 nutmeg, grated 
  1 cup brandy 
  1/4 teaspoon soda 
  4 squares chocolate, melted 
  1 tablespoon hot water 

  Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, and beat thoroughly. Separate 
  yolks from whites of eggs, and beat yolks until thick and lemon-colored. 
  Add to first mixture, then add flour (excepting one third cup, which 
  should be reserved to dredge fruit), mixed and sifted with spices, fruit 
  dredged with flour, lemon rind and orange rind finely chopped, brandy. 
  chocolate, and whites of eggs beaten until stiff and dry. Just before 
  putting into pans, add soda dissolved in hot water. Cover pans with 
  buttered paper, and steam four hours. Finish cooking by leaving in a warm 
  oven over night.

  Subject: Pound Cake - Impossible To Find

  I'm looking for a homemade heavy pound cake recipe that my uncle used 
  to buy at a cake sale 35 years ago.  It was the best pound cake in the 
  world - an original old fashioned recipe that nobody bothers making 
  these days - a recipe maybe somebody's mother or grandmother might have.  
  Can you please help?  Thanks.  Desperate Linda  

Hi Linda,

I can't help without more information than that. No recipe is going to say "this is the one that was sold at bake sales 35 years ago". When I look, I'll find hundreds and hundreds of pound cake recipes, and hundreds of "old-fashioned pound cake recipes". If you can't tell me some way to identify the correct one, then I can't help you. How would it be different from an ordinary pound cake recipe?

  THHi - I understand why you wouldn't be able to find the specific one i'm
  looking for by the info I gave you - how about a great old fashioned heavy 
  home-made pound cake recipe?  Thanks.  Linda 

Hi Linda,

The problem is that recipes don't say "this is a 'heavy' pound cake." I get 1100 recipes by entering "pound cake" as a search phrase in the recipe database, but I get none at all by entering "heavy pound cake". What does "heavy" mean to you?

The recipe below is the only pound cake recipe that I could find on the Internet that was called "heavy" by the person posting it. I hope it's what you want.


  A Very Good Basic Pound Cake 

  3 cups sugar
  2 sticks butter
  1 cup Crisco
  5 eggs
  1 teaspoon vanilla
  3 1/4 cups plain flour
  1 cup sweet milk ( Make this by using 2/3 cup of canned milk and filling 
    to cup with warm water.)

  Cream sugar with Crisco and butter. Add other ingredients one at a time. 
  Mix until smooth. Bake one hour and 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

  Can you help?        

  Thank You,

Hi Shelley,

Pickled fish, huh? Well, if you insist.... Below are four recipes and there are a couple more at this site:

Northern Pike

The first recipe below won an award.


  Pickled Northern Pike

       4 1/2 pounds of pike fillets cut into bite-sized pieces 
       7 cups water 
       1 cup coarse salt 
       1 bottle white vinegar 
       2 1/2 cups sugar 
       1 cup white Silver Satin wine (a sweet, white, "pop" wine
       1 onion
        thinly sliced 

  Fill gallon jar with 7 cups water and 1 cup coarse salt. Stir until 
  dissolved. Add cut-up pike fillets to jar. Refrigerate 48 hours. Drain 
  and empty jar and rinse well. Return fish to empty jar and cover with 
  white vinegar. Refrigerate 24 hours. Remove fish from jar, but save 
  vinegar. Boil 4 cups vinegar for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add 
  2 1/2 cups sugar. Stir until dissolved and let cool. Add 1/4 cup 
  pickling spices and 1 cup white Silver Satin wine. Layer fish in jar, 
  alternating with thin slices of onion. Completely cover with liquid. 
  Let stand in refrigerator for 3 weeks. 
  Pickled Northern Pike

  (Note: this is a cold fish brine recipe; you do not use heat for any 
  of the steps.)

  1st step: Filet your fish.  You can leave the bones in the meat, as 
  this recipe dissolves the bones as it cures. Cut fish in bite size 
  or larger (smaller) pieces. 

  2nd step: Pack loosely in quart glass jar.  Add 5/8 cup of pickling 
  salt per quart. Fill with white vinegar to cover fish.  Shake jar until 
  salt is dissolved.  Let stand 5 days in the refrigerator, gently shaking 
  once a day. 

  3rd step: After the 5th day, remove fish from jar, wash fish with cold 
  water, and drain.  Let stand in cold water 1/2 to 1 hour; drain again. 

  4th step: Using a quart jar, fill the jar to the half-way point with the 
  cold drained fish in loose layers of sliced onions.  Add 2 cups white 
  sugar, 2 tablespoons pickling spice, dash of dried red peppers. Continue 
  filling jar with alternate layers of fish and onions. Add enough white 
  vinegar to cover the fish and onions.

  5th step: Let stand in refrigerator for one week for flavor.  Keeps in 
  refrigerator for 3-4 months. Serve with crackers!
