Looking for who has what to share

It’s that time again – time to campaign for who wants what.

Jim Pantley of Everett, for instance, has a whole bunch of box tops for schools to donate. Donna Stockholm wants to know who wants or can use her collection of used greeting cards.

If you or your school, group or organization would like to cash in on donations of this sort, you need to ante up. Start by writing to me, Judyrae Kruse at the Forum, c/o The Herald, P.O. Box 930, Everett, WA 98206.

Next, please specify which/what labels/box tops/proofs of purchase you are hoping for – or if you are simply asking for a donation of used greeting cards. In other words, be specific about what you need or want. Then give us the destination – the full name, along with the mailing address, complete with ZIP code.

All of you interested in this share-a-thon must include with your request a name, mailing address with ZIP code and telephone number with area code.

The same goes for e-mail requests – name, complete address with ZIP code and telephone number with area code. No exceptions, no kidding. And furthermore, there will be no response to e-mail by return e-mail; send to kruse@heraldnet.com.

While you’re at it, you might also be able or want to help out with these requests:

SOS: Arlington cook Debbie Hackworth writes, “I have misplaced a treasured recipe that I received from my mom, who passed away two years ago. It is an absolutely scrumptious banana bread recipe from a D.A. Duryee cookbook. I know that D.A. Duryee was a real estate agency some years back in the Everett area, but I have not been able to find or replicate that recipe – and no other recipes seem to come close.

“This banana bread recipe requires pecans rather than walnuts, which I have found to be unique. This recipe is not only valued for its delicious results but, more than that, it is a cherished link to my mom. Please help me, if you can.”

SOS: We hear from Diana Hendrix, “Quite a few years ago, I cut out a recipe for scones which had dried cranberries, apricots, golden raisins, oatmeal and a few other yummy, nummy ingredients. I have somehow misplaced it, and am wondering if anyone has it anywhere in their recipe files. If so, it would be so greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, I am still checking to see if I can possibly find it … “

SOS: Mountlake Terrace cook Annie Benchmann hopes Forum cooks can share a “really good” recipe for coq au vin. She says it’s one of “those wonderful-sounding things” she longs to serve to family and friends. Unfortunately, the couple of recipes she’s tried so far have been “way too winey.” Can anybody send along a tried-and-true recipe for this classic French chicken dish?

SOS: Margaret Walker has torn her Stanwood house apart, without success, looking for a great dessert recipe she came by years and years ago. It’s made with slices of pound cake, layered with bottled/tinned golden syrup and shaved chocolate. Once assembled, this confection stores in either the refrigerator or freezer and is a delicious finish at fancy dinner parties, not to mention a handy thing to haul out when unexpected guests show up at the door.

If you can help with any or all of these requests, please get in touch with me at the above address.

The next Forum will appear in Monday’s Time Out section.
