The anchovies are the fillets and they are layered with basil or parsley with chopped 
garlic in oil and vinegar as I remember and eaten on a small piece of toast. they 
marinate in the refig.. but i know there are other things. 

Hello Roxann,

Gosh, Rox, if you'd told me these were "boquerones", I would have found them a couple of days ago. Please give me all the information you have about your request up front. Can't solve a mystery without all the clues...

See below.



- 1 kilo fresh anchovies. 
- White wine vinegar. 
- Virgin olive oil. 
- Garlic. 
- Parsley. 
- Salt (optional).


1. Top and tail anchovies.
2. Slit along underside and discard innards.
3. Open out fish.
4. Remove central bone by lifting from tail end upwards.
5. Rinse well.
6. Place a layer of anchovy fillets in a shallow dish.
7. Sprinkle with salt (optional) and pour on plenty of vinegar.
8. Repeat with another layer, changing direction.
9. Leave to soak in vinegar for a few hours or overnight.
10. Pour off vinegar.
11. Very gently rinse fillets.
12. Cover fillets in virgin olive oil.
13. Add slices of garlic and chopped parsley.

Hi Rox,

I don't know where you live, but if you live on the East or West coasts, try your local fish market.

As for on the Internet, the only place I can find that advertises fresh boquerones (Spanish White Anchovies) is here:

La Espanol Meats

Some other places sell "fresh anchovies or fresh boquerones packed in vinegar or in olive oil:

Dear Phaedrus,

This is the best site I have ever seen.....

I wanted to correct a recipe. Cincinnati Chili. You have to try it I 
don't like chili except this one or Skyline. we cooked one and the other was 
frozen almost the same.
My friend that grew up in Cincinnati got this recipe from one of the owners 
of Empire chili.. its very old...I do not like chili but this CC is Great. 
We also have Skyline chili pallors in Ft. Lauderdale Fla... as another 
post said some articles add this and that... there is no chocolate because as I 
was told by Skyline-allergies people have .... the cheese on top is Land of 
Land Mild cheddar changes in Large Cap there is no oregano or paprika or 
beef bouillon.

Also Publics in Florida has frozen Skyline Chili in the stores... blue box

Empire Chili

1 qt water
2 lbs ground beef
2 large onions grated fine 
1 OR 2 6 OZ tomato paste 
1 1/2 tab allspice
1/2 tea crushed red pepper
1/2 tea ground cumin powder
1 toe garlic 
2 tables chili powder
1 1/2 tab vinegar
3 bay leafs
5 whole cloves
1 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tab cinnamon
1 tab black pepper
1 tab salt

This is great and nothing more is added 
Happy cooking 
Miami Fla

Rox, I'm sure there are a lot of Cincinnati residents who would argue with you. There are other Cincinnati Chili recipes on my site here:

My name is LaTressa and I am looking for a waffle cookie recipe, but not your usual 
chocolate type which I keep finding in my searches. I first made and tasted this recipe 
when I was in seventh grade and we made it in home-ec.The recipe I'm looking for is 
made with fruit flavored gelatin. I have been searching for this recipe for years, and 
I can't find it... I hope maybe you will have more luck than I have... but maybe it 
doesn't exist outside of my seventh grade home-ec class, LOL. But I still crave these 
cookies 15 years later and would LOVE to share them with my children!I know they are 
made by creaming together shortening and sugar (white granulated) and I'm pretty sure 
there is flour in the recipe, and eggs (I think, maybe not...), and of course the Jell-o,
other than that, I can't remember any other ingredients. I've searched the Kraft Foods
and Jell-o site, and found nothing... I've searched for quite a while, but then I found
your site, and I thought maybe you could help me.I would be so grateful if this recipe
could be found!!

Thanks so much!

Hello LaTressa,

See below.


Waffle Cookies


1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, beaten
1/3 package any fruit flavor jello
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flour


Cream together first 3 ingredients, then add the remaining ingredients.
Mix into a soft dough. Form into balls. Place balls 3" apart on waffle iron.
Bake. DO not overbake. Cookies will cook faster than waffles.

Just wondering if I am duplicating efforts here-do you happen to look at the
food section in Wednesday's Memphis Commercial Appeal?They have a weekly
article-recipe finder-that people write to in order to also find misplaced recipes.

Today they have a recipe for Piggly Wiggly Taco Dip.
