Myrna from dinnerwarereplacements.net sent in her thoughts on buying and selling online. We've published all the responses, but here is one that just came in:
"Bought an item from a person on the east coast. When it arrived here on the west coast, the item (in bubble wrapping, paper towels, etc) in the box was dirty but not damaged. The seller claimed it must have gotten dirty during travels with the shipment processed as it was clean when packed. I managed to get a refund from them but to this day still donít know how an item gets dirty ďinĒ a package. Must have been very small particles finding their way into all the wrapping."

Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.
Last week, someone requested a recipe for "Chicken en Courte". Carol T from Cullman, AL sent this in. Thanks (AGAIN!) Carol!
Chicken en Croute
2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (about 5-6 oz. each)
4 oz. white mushrooms, very finely chopped
1 small bag of spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup heavy cream
2-4 slices Swiss cheese, or Gruyere, thinly sliced
1 sheet puff pastry, store bought
4 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 egg, beaten
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat a saute pan, add half the oil and sear the chicken breasts until cooked 3/4′s through. Remove the chicken; add the remaining oil and the mushrooms and the spinach. Cook for 3 minutes then add the garlic. Lower the heat to medium and cook until the mushrooms have given off most of their liquid and it has evaporated. Add the cream, season with salt and pepper and cook until the cream thickens and most of the liquid has reduced. Allow both the chicken and the mushrooms to cool to room temperature. Cut the puff pastry sheet in half. On each half layer, in order, the cheese, the mushroom mixture and finally the chicken breast, laying everything lengthwise along the pastry sheet, and leaving as much of a clean border around the pastry as possible.
Brush the exposed puff pastry with the beaten egg, just to moisten the pastry. Gently pull the pastry up over the chicken so that the pastry completely encloses the chicken. Donít worry about making it looks pretty, just make sure that it is well sealed and that you didnít tear any holes in the pastry. If you did tear a hole just rip off a bit of the excess and use that to repair it. Flip the package over so that all your seams are on the bottom and gently smooth out the pastry.
Donít worry about them looking perfect, once they puff up in the oven many of those small imperfections will disappear. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow the pastry to set up again. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 375F. When the pastry has chilled brush the top and sides and the beaten egg and place package on a slightly greased baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes. Lower the heat and bake for 20-25 minutes longer or until a thermometer, stuck into the middle of the chicken breast reaches 165F. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 7-8 minutes before serving.
*Note - the recipes are submitted by fellow Collectors Newsletter readers and are not checked for accuracy or tested by the TIAS staff. Keep in mind that many of these recipes were created at a time when there were no worries about such things as raw eggs, for example - so modern kitchen safety should prevail.
8. As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.
We don't have any requests this week. Isn't anybody hungry out there? How about those old comfort food recipes. Some seem so "unhealthy" by today's standards. Have any of you taken an old standard "back of the box" recipe and updated it?
If you have a vintage recipe request send it to email@example.com and we might just publish it here.
TIAS.com merchants have well over 4,000 cookbooks for sale! You can see them here:
