  Hi! My mom used to make a Roast that included Heinz 57 Sauce, 
  Horseradish and Carrots. My son's loved it, particularly since 
  the meat was so tender. My mom passed on about four years ago, 
  and I have not been successful at locating the recipe. I'm hoping 
  that you may be able to help, inasmuch as I hear you are the 
  'Finder of All Lost Recipes'!

  Looking forward to hearing from you! ~Sharon

Hello Sharon,

Could it be the roast beef recipe below?


  Horseradish Pot Roast

  List of Ingredients

  4lb. beef roast
  1 tbsp. salt
  1 tsp. pepper
  1 5 oz. jar prepared horseradish, (not the sauce)
  1 c. water
  8 small potatoes,cut into 1/2's
  8 medium carrots,each cut 1/4's
  8 small onions


  Cook the roast in a dutch oven type pot over a medium heat until brown.
  Reduce the heat. 
  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  Add the water around the roast.
  Heat to boiling, then reduce the heat. 
  Cover and simmer on top of stove OR bake in a 325 oven for 2 1/2 hours.

Hello Joan,

I found one. See below.


Norwegian Sand  Bakelse  

 Ingredients : 
 1 c. butter
 1 c. margarine
 1 egg
 1 1/2 c. sugar
 1 tsp. almond flavoring
 Flour, enough to make stiff dough
 Scandinavian Cookie tins

 Preparation : 
   Combine all ingredients, press into tins and bake at 350 degrees. 
 Let cool a bit, then gently knock cookies from upside down tins. 
 Serve cookies upside down so designs will show.  Tin use directions:
  Take a ball of dough about 1 inch in diameter and put it in the
 bottom of a tin and with thumb press down and rotate tin around so
 dough fits into indentations of the tin design.  Practice will tell
 you how much dough to use and how long to cool before removing from
 tins.  If cookies are too thin they will crack when tin is tapped. 
 If they are too thick they stick to tins.

Honey Garlic Salad Dressing

  Subject: Honey Garlic Salad Dressing.

  Years ago I had a cookbook entitled, "Betty Crocker Cooking for Two"  
  About 1959-ish. In it was a recipe for Honey Garlic Salad Dressing.   
  In addition to honey & garlic,  I think it had lemon juice and oil  
  but don't remember the proportions and/or if it also contained vinegar.  
  It did NOT contain mayonnaise.   Do you have access to this recipe?   
  I have seen similar but not the exact and it was delicious.  

  You do have an amazing site. Very interesting and helpful. Your help 
  will be appreciated.
  Thank you,

Hi Judy,
