I am looking for the recipe for Lazarus Good For You Muffin.  This muffin 
had carrots, raisins, etc and use to be served at a food bar in Lazarus on I 
believe the 3rd floor.  The foods there were light cuisine and not the full 
meals in the restaurant.

Thank You,

Hi Janet,

Sorry, this isn't in the Lazarus recipe books that I have, and I had no success finding it elsewhere.

I'll post this for reader input.

Hi, I am looking for a black bean enchilada recipe that was publish in a 
magazine, as I recall it may have been southern living or cooking light, 
published between 1998 and 2002. I cannot find it in either archive. The 
recipe had vinegar and oregano (mexican).. I have been searching for this 
for several years.


Hello June,

Based on your information, I searched for a black bean enchilada recipe with oregano and vinegar, but with no chicken or beef, and that was in either Southern Living or Cooking Light magazine. I did not have any success.

Campbell's Black Bean Soup

I was lately thinking about things, now gone, that only live in memory. 
"Lately" being this morning's memory amble, that is.  And what was it that 
came to mind?  Campbell's Black Bean Soup, something I remember as a kind of 
"treat" when I was a kid, so odd it seemed, such an unexpected change from 
the more often served Tomato or Chicken Noodle at lunch.  Maybe those were 
cheaper?  Family money was tight ca. 1953.  I believe Mother enlivened it 
sometimes with cut up bits of hot dog--gourmet food strikes the Fifties in 
Northern New York!  Some Google research did not reveal just _when_ the soup 
was discontinued, but I do recall having it in the Seventies.  I looked for 
a list of superseded Campbell's soups, and found one or two mentions of 
certain ones (e.g., "Pepper Pot"), but no general list of dates of 
disappearance, and nothing particular about when CBBS was removed from 
America's bowls.  Any help?

I suppose I can sort of see why it was never a great favorite, as a bowl of 
it, with nothing added for "color," looked like smooth oozy mud.  Mmm, Mmm, 


Hi Ray,

Good to hear from you. Hope you are well.

I found several mentions of this soup being discontinued, but no date of discontinuation. Quite a few people are looking for the black bean dip recipe that was on the can.

I'll post this for reader input.
