My name is Alex and I wanted to know if there is a recipe for TeaBisk somewhere out there.
Dr. Oetker bought out the company that makes TeaBisk and has since discontinued the product.
My wife makes apple crisp and uses 1/2 TeaBisk and 1/2 Bisquick. We would like to either buy
it somewhere or make our own if there is a recipe for the product.
I would appreciate your help if at all possible.
Tea-Bisk has indeed been discontinued, and so itís not for sale anywhere. Tea-Bisk was a Canadian
product similar to Bisquick. The two products are so similar that they are offered as alternatives
for each other in dozens of recipes on the Internet. Since Tea-Bisk was a commercial product, the
actual recipe isnít available. This site - Mom Recipes - gives a substitute:
ďTeabisk was a common boxed premix; a cup can be replaced by 1 cup pastry flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 Tbsp shortening.Ē
There are no home recipes for this kind of product that are all powder because of the need for shortening in the mix.
Iím not sure what the commercial producers use for fat in their mixes, but itís apparently not available to home cooks.
Tea-Bisk and Bisquick are so similar that most mentions of them on the Web make no distinction between them.
Iím not too familiar with Tea-Bisk, but it seems a bit odd to me that a recipe would call for 1/2 Tea-Bisk and
1/2 Bisquick rather than all of one or the other. Has your wife tried making the apple crisp with all Bisquick?
How is the apple crisp made with all Bisquick different from the same apple crisp made with 1/2 Tea-Bisk and
1/2 Bisquick? I canít find anything that says there is a difference in taste between the two mixes.

Subject: Blue Boar Combination Salad
The Blue Boar left quite a long time ago but I always had the Combination
Salad when I ate in that cafeteria in Lexington, KY. I would like to be
able to duplicate that recipe.
While I can find several recipes from Blue Boar, I cannot find even a mention
of a "Combination Salad." Could it have another name? What was in it?

As I recall, it had iceberg lettuce and tomatoes but I don't remember anything else except the dressing.
It was a mayonnaise-based dressing that tasted a lot like Miracle Whip. I have tried lettuce and tomatoes
with mayo and Miracle Whip and it still doesn't come out right.
Thanks for your help!
Sorry, I can't find anything that fits your description.
Try this with the iceberg lettuce and tomatoes.
Please offer this recipe to Joberta.
Timm in Oregon

1/2 cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons Kraft Miracle Whip Dressing
3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
2 tablespoon vinegar
Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use.

I am looking for a buttercream filling for chocolate candy. I'm wanting different favors like
orange, raspberry, maple and the regular flavor.
I believe it was Fannie Mae candy shop is where I first had them. They were in the Malls in
Madison, Wisconsin. They haven't been in the Malls for years. I don't know where to find this filling.
Please help me?
No luck with a recipe for Fannie Mae's filling or a copycat for commercial buttercream filling for chocolates. Try these:
