find it.  I sure miss both of these item.  Thank you in advance for your 


Hello Jean,

Chelo's is still in business, but I could find no mention of their onion strips, nor are onion strips on their current menu. Sorry.

I have found many recipes for lemon squares but non have the crust on top 
like Korb's Bakery.  Korb's bakery was in Rhode Island for many years and 
I would like to know if you could find their recipe.  Thank you in advance 
for your help. 


Hi Jean,

Sorry, I could not find even a mention of Korb's lemon squares, although there are lots of reminisces on message boards about the bakery itself.

Hi Sheri,

Sorry, I had no success with a recipe for cheese bread from Helms Bakery. However, there are recipes for "cheddar cheese bread" with the cheese in the dough, not just bread with cheese on top. There's one here:

I'm looking for the recipe for the Vinaigrette Salad Dressing served 
at ZoŽ's Kitchen Restaurants. It seems to be a very mild vinaigrette, 
lightly seasoned.  I've never successfully duplicated.

Thank you in advance.


Hello Robb,

Sorry, no success with this one.
