Good AM Dear Sir!

What a wonderful place you run. it is now my first bookmark and I read 
it daily. Here is a recipe that some of your fans may like. I call it 
Dresden Sauce and it is marvellous accompaniment to salmon or steak or 
chicken or burgers. Seems it works on just about anything but cake - but 
I have not tried that yet.

Dresden Sauce

I cup Sour Cream
1 tsp Grainy Prepared Mustard
1 tsp Prepared Horseradish - Canadian is best!
1/2 tsp dried Dill weed

Mix well and let stand in fridge for 24 hours. Try it on your favorite 
food. It works well even on Chicken Quesadillas.

Uncle Phaedrus:

I'm searching for a recipe my mom used to make - my ex-husband in Australia
retained her recipe box and won't send it back, the brat :-( - called
"Forgotten Kisses".  The cookies are basically meringue, not dough, but it's
not a standard meringue that stays soft and puffy; it props up chocolate
chips, and the key is that you heat the oven, then turn it off right before
you insert the cookie sheets and just leave the cookies in there as the oven
gradually cools down.  I looked faithfully in the archives, and did not see


Hi Jeanne,

> Dear Uncle,
> I watched a documentary this evening called 'That's Black Entertainment'
about the underground black movie industry.  One of the performer mentioned
was a 7 year old black pianist called Sugar Chile Robinson.  I think they
said his name was Frankie and the film was from 1946.  That would mean he
was born in 1939 or so.

Hi Lisa,

Consensus seems to be that child prodigy Frankie "Sugar Chile" Robinson was born in 1940. Most references say he was 12 in 1952, which would have made 1940 his birth year. This musical prodigy's boogie-woogie piano career peaked from 1949 to 1952, faded from 1952 to 1954, and he is not known to have performed after 1954. I found references that said he's still alive and living in Detroit. There's a bio here:
