Subject: Trader Joe's Eggs Poached in Sherry
Years ago, my boyfriend made a dish he says came from Trader Joe's. It was eggs poached in butter and
sherry topped with parmesan cheese. He is long gone and I want to make this. Do you have that recipe?
Paula in Peoria
I can’t find any recipe like that with any connection to Trader Joe’s. It may have been on a package of something he bought at Trader Joe’s.
I can only find one recipe for eggs poached with sherry: Big Oven
However, that recipe has langoustine and dijon mustard. I could not find a recipe for eggs poached in sherry and butter.
I found another recipe for poached eggs on toast with parmesan cheese and pistou. Pistou is a cold sauce
made from cloves of garlic, fresh basil, and olive oil.
See: Bon Appetit
There is no sherry in this recipe.
I’ll post this on my site. Maybe a reader can help.

Subject: Recipe request
I recently visited a Mexican restaurant in Portland, Oregon by the name of La Costita.
The complementary salsa that was provided was excellent. Any chance of obtaining some
assistance in recreating that taste?
I found lots of reviews in which people mentioned how tasty La Costita’s salsa is. However, I had no
success finding a recipe or a copycat or even a “tastes like”.
I’ll post this.

Subject: Looking for an original recipe for Cowboy Cookies with filling in between
My aging friend has lost her recipe for Cowboy Cookies. She wants the recipe to hand down to her
beautiful granddaughter. Can you help us?
I thank you for any consideration you can give to my request and thank you for your time & trouble.
It’s no problem to find a recipe for “cowboy cookies”. There are hundreds of them in our files and on the Internet.
However, I can’t find one that’s a sandwich cookie with filling in between.
They all are drop cookies with nuts, coconut and chocolate chips, etc. Your friend’s “cowboy cookies” are not the
usual ones if they have filling between.
I won’t give up yet, though. Find out where she originally got the recipe and get more information about the ingredients.
