Hi A.H.,

Alas, I could not locate the Italian or Asian either. Sorry.

Karo Brownies

  My mother used to make chocolate brownies using karo syrup 
  INSTEAD of sugar AND oil INSTEAD of butter, margarine or 
  shortening.  My sister lost this recipe over the years.  
  I have looked everywhere.  This is a recipe that we used 
  over 25-30 years ago.

  I am not sure if the syrup completely replaces the sugar or 
  if it is a mixture.

  These are suppose to be the best brownies ever!

  Thank you, 


Hi Kate,

Can't find one where the Karo replaces all of the sugar. Maybe the one below?


  Glorified  Brownies

   Ingredients : 
   1 c. sugar
   2/3 c. oil
   2 eggs
   1 c. and 1 tbsp. flour
   1/2 tsp. baking powder
   Pinch of salt
   3 tbsp. cocoa
   3/4 c. nuts
   2 tbsp. white Karo syrup

   Preparation : 
      Cream sugar and oil and add slightly beaten eggs.  Sift in dry
   ingredients.  Then add syrup and nuts.  Bake in square pan or pan a
   little larger or equivalent.  Bake at 350 degrees for around 30
   minutes or less.  While brownies are baking, mix brownie icing. 
   Icing:  Sift 3 tablespoons cocoa and 1/2 box 4X sugar together and
   blend with 1/2 stick softened butter or oleo and 4 tablespoons thin
   cream or Carnation milk.  Immediately when brownies come from oven,
   halve large marshmallows (or use a 5 or 6 ounce package of miniature
   marshmallows) and cover the top of the hot brownies.  Then spread
   icing over marshmallows, working it down in and between the
   marshmallows so the whole top is covered.  Cut in squares, after
   letting them stand overnight.

  I recently ate a soup called End of the Season Soup.  I cannot 
  seem to find the recipe anywhere.  I know it had corned beef and 
  a variety of vegtables in like corn, beans and zucchini.  I was 
  wondering if you have ever heard of it and if you have please 
  give me the recipe. 

Hi LD,

The only recipe that I can locate with that name is the one below. No corned beef.


        End of the Season Soup   

        2 cups fresh mushrooms 
        1 cup zucchini 
        1 cup yellow squash 
        1 cup onion 
        2 cups fresh spinach 
        2 cups chicken broth 
        2 (15 ounce) cans chopped tomatoes 
        1 tablespoon olive oil 
        1 tablespoon minced garlic 
        1 tablespoon oregano 
        1 tablespoon fresh basil 
        1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
        15 individual tortellini, cheese-filled 

 Saute garlic in olive oil. Add vegetables and continue 
to saute for five minutes. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring 
mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. 
Drop in tortellini, return to a boil for 30 seconds. 
Reduce heat. Simmer for 2 additional minutes.
