There was a bakery in Market Square named Rhea's Pittsburgh. PA 15222 they made a cheesecake that was tall and fluffy. I was a young person. Can you help.

Hi Linda,

Sorry, no luck. There are several requests for this recipe on the web, and no one appears to have had any success. See:

I’ll post this on my site for reader input.


Crockpot Poppycock

Hi there:  I hope you or someone on here can help.  I have found recipes for homemade poppycock on the net; however, 
thought it would be easier to make in a crockpot.  Have u you ever found such a recipe?  Thanks in advance.


Hello Liz,

Sorry, I can’t find even a mention of making poppycock in a crockpot/slow cooker. I’ll post this on the site.


Timm pointed out that "poppycock" is basically the same as "caramel corn".

I found this recipe by looking for “caramel corn in a crockpot” instead of “poppycock”:

Lazarus sweet chocolate cake

Hello Emily,

I have the Lazarus recipe books, volume one and two, and there is no "sweet chocolate cake" recipe in either of them, nor can I find any mention on the Internet of a cake with that name from Lazarus.

I'll post this for reader input.
