  I am looking for a recipe for bbq beef.  I had it years ago, it 
  was a roast and included onion soup mix and liquid smoke and other
  ingredients, wrapped in foil and baked.  when it was finished you 
  just used a fork and broke it apart.  I don't remember what the 
  other ingredients were.  Thanks.


Hi Joanne,

Well, I haven't been able to find it. I did find a recipe for cooking brisket that sounds similar, so I'm sending it. I think it would work for cuts of roast beef other than brisket, and you could probably leave off the beer if you wished.


  Brisket  In  Foil

   Ingredients : 
   1 lg. beef brisket (about 7 lbs.)
   1 sm. bottle liquid smoke
   6 oz. beer
   1 sm. bottle barbecue sauce
   1 env. dried onion soup
   Cracked pepper

   Preparation : 
      Place brisket on large sheet of heavy duty foil, which has been
   placed in large pan.  Pour remaining ingredients over top of brisket
   and sprinkle a generous amount of cracked pepper.  Seal and bake for
   4 hours at 350 degrees.  Let cool slightly and slice thin and serve.

Hi Strawberry,

"Biscuits" can mean several things. In the UK and Australia, "biscuits" are what we call "cookies" or even "crackers" in the U.S.

If you mean soft and fluffy American biscuits, then I am sending you recipes for those below. If there is some special kind of biscuit that you are looking for, then write back.

  I Was looking up a recipe for Marshmellow Creme & came across  the ones 
  posted on your site,  I have a question about the recipe that is listed 
  first.   In the preparation, there is no mention of when to add or what 
  has to be done to the 2c. white corn syrup  -  Please help



Hi Janine,

I see what you mean. I should read these more thoroughly before I send them. The corn syrup should be slowly beaten in as the second step, before the powdered sugar. Below are more recipes for marshmallow cream.


  Homemade Marshmallow Creme

  List of Ingredients

  2 C granulated sugar 
  1 C egg whites 
  1 C water 
  1/2 C corn syrup, light 
  2 C corn syrup, light 
  4 t pure vanilla extract 

  Cook sugar, water and two cups corn syrup to 240 degrees.
  In mixing bowl, beat egg whites and half cup corn syrup until 
  mixed. Beat by hand until light and fluffy. Slowly add hot 
  syrup while beating. When all is mixed beat hard for three 
  minutes. Add vanilla extract. 
  Yields: 49 ounces (7 seven ounce portions). 
  Homemade Marshmallow Cream 

     1 large egg,  ( white only ) 
     1 c. sugar 
     1 c. corn syrup 
     1 tsp. vanilla 

 In a large mixing bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Pour syrup in 
 a steady stream over egg whites, beating constantly at a high speed.
 Continue beating for 10 to 15 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat 
 until smooth. Makes approximately 1 quart. 
  Soft  Marshmallow  Cream

   Ingredients : 
   1/2 c. butter or margarine
   1/2 c. Crisco
   1 c. granulated sugar
   3/4 c. evaporated milk
   1 tbsp. vanilla extract

   Preparation : 
  Cream butter 5 minutes on medium speed, add shortening and 
 beat, add sugar and continue beating.  Finally, add milk 
 and vanilla, scraping bottom and sides of bowl. The longer 
 you beat the mixture the creamier it will become. This recipe 
 makes a very soft filling, similar to that found in Twinkies 
 and other snack foods.  The cream filling will store for up 
 to one month in the refrigerator.
   Marshmallow  Creme

   Ingredients : 
   1 egg white, beaten
   1 c. corn syrup (white or light) 
   1 tsp. plain unflavored gelatin
   2 tbsp. cold water
   1 tsp. vanilla

   Preparation : 
  Boil the syrup to soft ball stage (236 degrees F. on candy 
  thermometer). Pour slowly over the beaten egg whites.  Dissolve 
  gelatin in the cold water.  Add the syrup mixture.  Add vanilla 
  and beat until very light and creamy.  Very good on ice cream, 
  cakes, or puddings.
