One of our readers sent this in. There are no markings on the bottom. Any idea of the history/time frame for these? "I am attaching a photo of some [sectioned plates] that I have with teacups to match. I think they are Japanese sushi plates. They are very interesting to me because there is a spot to put a cigarette right on the plate. Please help me if you know anything about this or can direct me to someone who can tell me about them. I have 8 place settings. Amanda W" Go to our FaceBook page here:

Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.
Marc S. wanted to share this recipe, saying, "With a glass of white wine, you will be thrilled with this dish."
PROVENCE INSPIRED OMELETTE
DISH SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR FOUR TO SIX
TWO EGGS PER PERSON
SAUTÉE YOUR CHOICE OF ONIONS, RED/ORANGE PEPPERS, MUSHROOMS (GOURMET SELECTION) IN SWEET BUTTER AND EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND USE WHATEVER OTHER INGRIDIENTS INSPIRE YOU. USE GARLIC, MINCED, IF YOU WANT THE ADDED FLAVOR.
BE SURE TO USE A FRYING PAN, WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU TO MOUND THE DISH AS YOU COOK.NOT TOO LARGE. SET YOUR OVEN TO BROIL.
WHEN THE MIXTURE OF VEGTABLES GIVES A SAVORY AROMA, MIX IN THE WELL WISKED EGGS. BE SURE TO ADD PEPPER AND SALT TO TASTE BEFORE YOU ADD THE EGGS. SET THE BURNER TO MEDIUM HIGH AFTER THE VEGTABLE MIXTURE IS READY. POUR IN YOUR EGGS AND, USING A FOLK, CONTINUE TO WORK EGGS TO ASSURE A MOUND EFFECT BUT DON’T OVER COOK THE EGGS. EGGS SHOULD LOOK LIKE THE ALPS. TAKE THE PAN OFF THE BURNER AND GENEROUSLY ADD BOURSIN CHEESE (HERBS AND GARLIC) OVER THE ENTIRE DISH.DON’T BE STINGY.
PLACE THE PAN UNDER THE BROILER AND CLOSELY WATCH AS EGGS BROWN TO A GOLDEN COLOR. IF THE EGGS WERE MOIST WHEN YOU PLACED THE PAN UNDER THE BROILER, THEY SHOULD FINISH COOKING IN THE OVEN.
SERVE A GENEROUS PORTION TO EACH GUEST WITH CRISP BACON AND TOASTED FRENCH BREAD. SALSA IS A GOOD ACCOMPANIMENT. OF COURSE, SERVE A GOOD FRENCH CHARDONAY. BON APPÉTIT!!
MARC K. S."
Susan O. had requested a Chicken/Rice/Vermicelli Pilaf recipe, and quite a few readers responded. Susan writes: "I would like to thank you for posting my request for the Chicken and Rice/Vermicelli Pilaf recipe. I'd like to also say I am grateful for the replies it solicited. One person recommended checking the Rice-A-Roni website for similar recipes (good advice, I had not thought of that and have begun to search). And in the newsletter I received today, Susan N offered a couple of recipes I might try combining. They sound good, and I will certainly experiment. Many thanks to all of you for taking the time to help with this search. Best wishes, Susan O."
*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.
Two weeks ago we started a discussion about foods created by family members that we either loved or hated when we were kids - foods probably never found in any cookbooks. We posted a couple of replies last week. Here are two more:
Glenda E. writes: "Reading the responses to favorite foods brought back memories. My Mom and I made bread and milk (sometimes with a little sugar) our evening meal often. Cornbread worked great too. The pigs feet snack reminded me of my Aunt giving me a boiled chicken foot to gnaw on. I don't think it was anywhere close to being a "favorite"."
and Margaret M. writes: "It wasn't the vanilla pudding for me...but the pureed apricots. My Mother actually had a grown-up recipe that called for jars of Gerber baby apricots. The other reader is right...once they "healtified" them-they lost a grown up customer with an adult sized appetite for their apricots. Margaret, Menomonie, WI"
If you have a vintage recipe request send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might just publish it here.
TIAS.com merchants have well over 4,000 cookbooks for sale! You can see them here:

10. Funny Old Stuff
"dumpsterlady" shared this cute story about recycling: "When my Grandson was in about 2nd grade the school had a field trip to a recycling center. He always came to our house after school and was telling me all about it. They learned about the 3-sided logos on packaging to tell you how to sort plastic to recycle. He always uses my character juice glasses, some jelly and some swanky swigs when at our house,so this day he gets one down, turns it over(the bottom had the Hazel Atlas mark in a triangle) and says" You can recycle this Grandma!" I sort of thought I already was!"
Thanks for sharing!
