I have been looking for Fatz Cafe, Poppy Seed Roll Recipe. We had them On way 
back from N.C. Oh so good, Please help if you can. Ina 

Hello Ina,

I cannot locate a recipe or a copycat for those. Sorry. There are several unfulfilled requests on message boards for that recipe. That's usually a pretty good sign that it's not available.

Corning Chicken

Dear Phaedrus-

I am looking for a recipe that was inserted (via pamphlet) into various pieces of 
Corning Glass Bakeware.  The recipe I believe was called Corning Glass "Shake and Bake"-
ingredients are corn flake crumbs, salt, pepper, oregano, paprika and a couple of other 
spices I do not recall.  I used to use this recipe when I made oven-fried chicken while 
working in a school cafeteria and the chicken was excellent & a best seller.  I lost the 
recipe several years ago when my home was robbed (I wrote recipe in an America Cooks 
vintage cookbook which was stolen-can you imagine?!).  Last November, I found a very 
elderly gent (via internet) who had retired from Corning Glass (company no longer exists), 
and he recalled the recipe and it's popularity.  He thought he may have had a copy of it 
in some of his paperwork (his name was o'donnell), but he was unable to find it.  I have 
looked through many recipe sites and done many searches trying to find this recipe, to no avail.
If it's possible, I really would like to have this recipe again, if you can find it.
Thank you for your time and effort.


Hello Dolly,

There are lots of cornflake-crumb-coated chicken recipes, but I cannot find one that even mentions that it comes from corning. You might try locating a corning-ware recipe booklet. See:

Hi again!  You were such a huge help with my last request, so I knew that since I have 
been unsuccessful in my quest, this is where I needed to come.

  I am looking for a Bob Evans clone of their blueberry bread.  It is a seasonal recipe 
and I have tried many blueberry bread recipes, but none came close.  I posted on the 
Taste of Home website as well, looking for a clone, but no luck.

  Would you be able to find one?

  Thanks for your help!  


Hi Karen,

I didn't find any recipes, but I found several requests for it, including yours on Taste of Home. No one has responded to any of the requests. That's a good indication that there's no recipe available, not even a copycat. Sorry.


Kmart Green Chili Sauce

I discovered your web site while searching for a couple recipes.  I have been 
searching for so long for these two recipes and have even contacted the companies 
but to no avail, I have come up empty handed!

Perhaps you have a magic site that leads you to hard-to-find recipes!  I am a retired 
chef and have over three hundred and fifty cookbooks, some from the 1800's, yet none 
of them have been a help this time nor has Google,, Copycat recipes or other 
sites been a help.

As requested, I am making one request per e-mail, here is the first one;

From Kmart stores now defunct restaurants. (recipes were in notebooks distributed to 
each store cafe back before the mid 1980's)  A menu item was named 'Deluxe Burrito Plate 
and I am searching for the green chili sauce that topped it.  In the notebook it was 
listed as 'green Chili Sauce.  Made with ground beef, green chilies, flour, onion, 
water, tomatoes and other ingredients.  Delicious but I cannot remember how to make it.

I have high hopes that you can find it.  One of the last stores to have the recipe 
notebook was in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Many thanks,

Hi Tanya,

Wish I could help, but I had no success locating this recipe.


Piccadilly Seafood Casserole

Hello again!

I hope that this finds you well!

My second request is for a restaurant recipe from the Piccadilly Cafeteria that 
was located in Thomas Mall at 44th Street and Thomas Road in Phoenix, Arizona. 
The mall closed down in the 1990's and the restaurant closed before that.  As a 
child I was in love with their 'Seafood Casserole'.  It was served in individual 
casserole dishes, oblong in shape and they held probably two to three cups of the 
food.  The recipe itself was similar to a bread or cracker based stuffing but loaded 
with seafood.  I think it was a whitefish and shrimp mix.  Served with a tartar sauce 
it was oh-so good!  There was no rice or noodles in it and it was not layered but was 
a mixture.   I wrote to a restaurant chain in the southeast by the same name but have 
not heard back yet.  I have no idea if it is the same company or not.  This one in 
Phoenix was a cafeteria where you went through the line, like a buffet, picked out 
individual dishes and loaded your tray.  Then you paid at the end of the line.  I 
always had the casserole, steamed broccoli or spinach souffle and slow baked egg 
custard.  Yes, I was a strange child!

Thank you again for helping me!  Please contact me should I ever be of assistance 
to you.  Some of my cookbooks are highly specialized including one from the civil 
war that the Army used and very small, small town groups books.


Hi Tanya,

Sorry, this recipe does not appear to be available.
