10. A vintage recipe request from a reader:

We received quite a few vintage recipe requets. We knew you were just craving something from your childhood! If you can help these readers, please send your recipes to recipes@tias.com. Thank you all!

1. "Hello My grandmother use to make a sweet "Suet Pudding". It was wonderful she steamed it. I had a recipe for it for years I guess when I moved it got lost I have searched for it and have given up. Then I remembered you do have people out there with old recipes. I remember raisins and more but my brain is not making a connections on the rest of it. Can anyone help?? Thank you Libby"

2. "I was in Houston and fell upon "kolaches". I'd like to know if anyone has a good recipe. Sue B"

3. "I had--and lost--a recipe a friend gave me in the early '70s. She called it Chicken and Pilaf or Chicken and Rice Pilaf. She got the recipe from her mother who lived in the San Diego area. She said she thought her mom got the recipe from a magazine. I remember a lot, but not enough. You sautéed rice and broken vermicelli briefly; I seem to recall seasonings added to that sauté. The slightly browned rice and vermicelli then went into a casserole dish and topped with raw chicken pieces (I used beasts). The recipe called for cream of mushroom soup and (maybe) cream of chicken soup or cream of celery soup. Some of the soup was poured over the ingredients in the casserole which was then baked. The rest of the soup was cooked on stovetop with seasonings and a bit of sherry. The stovetop sauce was served on the side. The sauce was brownish, but I can't remember what gave it that deeper color. I hope one of your readers can supply the recipe. Thanks, all. Susan O."

4. "I think ? this was the name of a very simple and elegant dessert which was published in one of the early (newspaper style) Country People "magazines" maybe in the early 70s or so? It seems it was just melted chocolate of some type, and maybe eggs? and/or heavy cream?? I know that's not too much to go on, but if anyone remembers or has it, it would be a good one to share with me, and others. Thanks. Tired and REtired Sandi C"

5. "Back in the 70's I remember my mom baking a Bundt Cake that was dark chocolate with a "tunnel" of white coconut in the middle. this was so good! I have not seen this type of cake mix in the stores for ages. Does anyone know if they're still available? or does anyone have a similar scratch recipe I could try? Thank you for helping. Laurie R from Michigan"

6. "Grew up with it [scrapple] as a child from PA. I've tried to make it but can't seem to get correct amounts.it will not firm up enough to slice and fry. Any one have a recipe? I sure would appreciate it. thanks Lyle"

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.

If you have a vintage recipe request send it to recipes@tias.com and we might just publish it here.
