Subject: Rich's Department Store -coffee shop- Pecan Cream Torte

I called Atlanta home from 1957-1960 and regularly hitch hiked from Norfolk, VA to Atlanta and back on a weekend, 
wearing my US Navy uniform to make better time, and looked forward to stopping by the coffee shop for a slice of 
Pecan Cream Torte, still my favourite confection of all time.  Any chance of getting the recipe?  TIA.

Hello Paul,

No problem. The page containing that recipe to which I had linked previously has vanished from the Internet. However, for those in the know, it is possible to travel back in time to the Internet of the past. Doing so, I found the recipe in 2005. See below.


Rich's Pecan Cream Torte

Hands on time: 20 minutes  Total time: 45 minutes  Serves: 16

1 1/2 cups brown sugar 
1 cup cake crumbs 
1/2 cup shortening 
2 tablespoons flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
5 eggs, separated 
1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans 
Whipped cream for garnish 
Finely chopped pecans for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9-inch layer cake pans; line the bottoms with greased wax paper. 
Cream sugar, crumbs, shortening, flour and baking powder until smooth. Add egg yolks and pecans. 
Mix until smooth. Whip the whites until they hold a soft peak and fold into batter. 
Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until cakes test done. 
Do not overbake. Cool layers and ice with whipped cream, garnish with finely chopped pecans around edge.

I need the recipe for Jewel osco Cheddar mac salad.

Thank you Clayton 

Hello Clayton,

I found two "macaroni & cheddar salads" mentioned in Jewel-Osco ads: "Essential Everyday Macaroni & Cheddar Salad" and "Sour Cream Cheddar & Macaroni Salad"

I could not find a recipe for either one, or a recipe that was claimed to taste like either one. I did find that someone had requested the same recipe on a message board, and they were given the below recipe in reply. It might be worth a try.


Cheddar and Macaroni Salad

1 cup macaroni
3/4 cup cubed Cheddar cheese
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

Cook pasta in boiling salted water until done. Drain. Rinse macaroni under 
cold water, and drain again.
Combine pasta with cheese, vegetables, mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, and 
pickle relish. Chill for at least 24 hours.
