Our files are overflowing with
recipes that never get printed
because we run out of space, read
ers send duplicate recipes, the
recipes don’t reach the office by
the print deadline or the recipes
don’t fit into the specified
categories.
Remember, we try to [Hint all
the recipes but sometimes, one
request receives 25 or more
answers while others receive
only one or none.
Some readers have recipes
printed often that’s because
they seem to have a knack of sub
mitting recipes for which we
receive no other answers, and,
recipes for the “Home On The
Range’’ section are received on
time to print them. Too often,
recipes listed in the recipe topics
are received after publication date.
If you are sending a recipe for one
of the recipe topics, it must reach
our office at least one week before
the date listed as the publication
date.
To increase your chances of
being published, type or clearly
print die recipes with concise
instructions. Also, clearly identify
if the recipe is answering a request
—and which one. Most recipes are
easily identifiable, but sometimes,
it’s difficult to comprehend for
which request or recipe topic the
recipe is sent.
Also, some readers read old
copies of the paper and send
answers for requests that have
been print months earlier. Make
sure, you are answering a current
request. Print your name and
address on each recipe.
We will try to print your recipes
if you follow the guidelines.
These are wonderful recipes and
ones that you are sure to enjoy.

It is also disgustingly delicious—

3 tablespoons almond liqueur
1 pound German sweet

Blend the chocolate with the
butter and yolk mixture, adding the
chcolate to the yolks a little at a
time. Finally, gently fold in choco
late into the egg whites. Pour into
dessert glasses and chill.
Top with whipped cream when
ready to save.
