Rosemont Twisted Rolls

Do you know the twisted glazed rolls recipe that Rosemont Jr High School, 
La Crescenta, California made in the 60ís. Would love to know.†


Hi Margie,

Well, I'm not sure what you mean by "twisted glazed rolls." I'm not finding anything that's specifically called that. Do you mean cinnamon rolls? If that's what you mean, then I think that is the way such a recipe would be listed.

I searched for any "rolls" recipe (twisted, glazed, cinnamon, or otherwise) from "Rosemont Jr High School", "Rosemont Junior High School", or "Rosemont Middle School" in La Crescenta, California, but I came up empty on all counts. Since that school is part of the "Glendale Unified School District" or "GUSD", I searched for a rolls recipe from that school district, thinking that perhaps all of the schools in that district used the same recipe, but I had no success with that, either.

I did find cinnamon roll recipes from the "Los Angeles Unified School District" or "LAUSD." Perhaps that district used the same recipe.

Hello Uncle Phaedrus,

When I was a child, I used to go to the Chef's Inn in Pasadena, California. 
They had the most delicious salad dressing.† I've looked all over for the 
recipe, but I can't find it. Can you help me, please?

Thank you,

Hello Meryl,

Sorry, no success. Many mentions of Chef's Inn, but no recipes and no mention of the dressing.

I'll post this for reader input.


Woolworth's Roulade Cake

Had Memorial Day lunch with Hungarians who immigrated originally through Canada 
and Into to the US many years ago. One gentleman was recalling an almond flavored 
roulade type of cake that he had eaten there as a youngster. I was wondering if 
you have seen or heard of this one. Many thanks if you are able to fill in this 
piece of info! I served the lemon icebox cake as an addition to their heavier 
Hungarian recipes as a dessert that day and it disappeared quickly! Jean 


Hello Jean,

I have only a partial Woolworth's recipe book, and there is no recipe like that in it. Sorry.

I will post this for reader input.
