Hi Uncle Phaed,
I am searching for a recipe from the 60's or 70's called Shady Lady Pie.
Can you help or have you heard of this?
I found very little mention of “Shady Lady Pie”, but I did find the below recipe in the December 29, 1969 edition
of the Long Beach California Press Telegram. I reworded it slightly to make it more grokkable.
Shady Lady Pie
24 large marshmallows
1/2 cup milk(hot)
Dissolve the marshmallows in the milk.
1 1/2 oz Coffee flavored brandy
1 1/2 oz Triple Sec
1 1/2 tbsp. instant coffee, dissolved in 2 oz brewed coffee
1 cup whipped cream
1/2 package orange Jello
coconut pie shells (see below)
Dissolve Jello in boiling water (1/2 of what the package calls for?), and add
this to the coffee brandy & triple sec mixture. Combine with marshmallow &
milk mixture. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into coconut shells and chill.
Garnish with whipped cream, Mandarin orange section, and coffee beans.
Coconut Pie Shells
Coconut shells can be made days ahead. Simply crush vanilla wafers,
combine with some freshly grated coconut (to taste), add enough melted
butter to make the pliable, then pat into shape in a pie plate and bake
That's it, Phaed! Huzzah!
Thank you, so much! I mentioned this recipe to a friend (the orange and coffee pie) and seem to have misplaced
the recipe and for some reason only retained the pie crust clip out.
Leprechauns in my recipe box, no doubt!

The NYT had, in the 90s a tomato soup that used cans of tomato juice as the
base with celery and 'aromatic or vegetable' salt in the ingredient list. In
the article that it was featured it, one person commented that 'this would
be great with vodka'. Perhaps you have it in your repertoire?
I had no success locating a tomato soup recipe that fit your description,
either with or without a mention of the NYT. Sorry.
I'll post this in case a reader has it.

I believe Neeru is looking for Hauser Broth
Thanks. I sent it to her. We’ll see.
Thank you! It is indeed.
All good wishes
