  I can't find the recipe that my mother used and all my cookbooks don't 
  show anything.  Do you know where I can find a recipe or several recipes
   so that I can make this wonderful meal?


Hello Peggy,

Couple of recipes below.


  Kettle - Of - Beans  Stew

   Ingredients : 
   1 1/2 c. dried navy beans
   1 med. onion, sliced
   1 ham bone or pieces of leftover ham

   Preparation : 
      Thoroughly wash the navy beans.  Cover with cold water and let
   soak several hours or overnight.  Drain.  To beans, add onion, ham
   bone or left over ham, and water to cover.  Heat to boiling; reduce
   heat.  Cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 1/2 to 2
   hours.  Remove bone; cut off meat (if any) and return to stew. 
   Season to taste.  Makes 4 servings.
   Crock  Pot  Ham-Bean  Soup

   Ingredients : 
   1 ham bone (with sm. amt. ham still on)
   2 c. Navy beans or mixed beans
   8 c. water (3 c. more may be added, after bone is taken out, then cook some more)
   1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder)
   1 tbsp. lemon juice
   1 tbsp. honey
   1 bay leaf
   1 lg. onion, chopped
   Salt & pepper, to taste

   Preparation : 
      Wash beans.  Put everything in crock pot along with ham bone
   (that has small amount of ham still on).  Start cooking at high (I
   usually start it in the evening) and after it starts cooking, turn
   to simmer.  (I cook it all night and until serving time at noon or
   even later.)  I usually remove the bone in the early morning and add
   more water. Remove bay leaf before serving.

The song from the Levi's commercial where the guy steals and old car and 
he is with a  French girl and they are running from the police and they 
ditch the car in the river but then he dives back for the French-English
dictionary??  It seems that the song is French but I am not sure.  
Thanks, you guys are great!!


Hi Sabrina,

The song is "Playground Love" by Air. It's actually part of a movie soundtrack by Air. The movie and the album are called "The Virgin Suicides."

You can see the video for "Playground Love" online here:

The Virgin Suicides

The lyrics are below.


  Title: Playground Love
  Album: The Virgin Suicides 

  I'm a high school lover, and you're my favorite flavor
  Love is all, all my soul
  You're my Playground Love

  Yet my hands are shaking
  I feel my body remains, themes no matter, I'm on fire
  On the playground, love.

  You're the piece of gold the flushes all my soul.
  Extra time, on the ground.
  You're my Playground Love.

  Anytime, anyway,
  You're my Playground Love.

Hi ____?

Great letter! But you didn't sign your name.....

A #2 can normally holds 18 to 20 ounces or about 2 1/2 cups. For a full can size chart, go to:

  I found your site today by doing a Google search.  this is certainly the 
  first time I have come up with so many answers!

  My Great Grandfather was Walter H. Hipolite.  To the best of my knowledge 
  he was the inventor of this Marshmellow creme. ( the marketer at any rate).  
  The jar said "Whipolite" when I was a kid -I'm 56- and I believe was maketed 
  by Kraft.  It used to have his copyright or patent on the back label in very 
  small print.

  I never did like the stuff...

  There!  More than you ever wanted to know about Hipolite.  How did you come 
  across your information?


Hi Nancy,

Thank you for writing! The information that I found was just here and there on the Internet. When did Hipolite cease sales?

There are still recipes around that call for Hipolite. Do you know the size of the jar? People ask me how much Kraft Marshmallow Creme to substitute. Hard to tell them without knowing the jar size.
