BILLY. . .Have a HUGE request. . . - MUSICMAKER - 08-01-2007

if you wouldn't mind, please? With this move, I cannot seem to find a few issues of Cuisine and there are a few recipes I'm looking for. . . and since you have the MP priviledge, would you mind???

Here's what I've been looking for:
1. Beets with citrus glaze, think from the premiere issue.
2. Melon salad with fresh mozzarella and lime vinaigrette, don't know what issue, sorry.
3. orange cream smoothie
4. sour orange blender sauce
5. tangerine vinaigrette
6. citrus vinaigrette
7. grape waldorf salad

Last, is an amendment to the NY cheesecake. I make the cheesecake ALL the time and was not aware there was a recipe amendment until several weeks ago and curiosity has got me. The cheesecake ALWAYS turns out great, but just wonder what was missing from the recipe. The original recipe is from issue 9, page 41, back cover actually, and the amendment is in issue 10, no page number, sorry.

Told you this was a big request...hope it's not too much trouble. THANKS!!!! HUGE THANKS!!!!

Think I found the cheesecake page, issue 10, page 36, if that helps? Thanks!

Okay, Linda, fill me in. I'm looking at #9, the cheesecake recipe. I don't have 10, so, what's the amendment??? My only thought is the cream cheese to sugar and egg ratio is off, cheesecake batters are versatile and forgiving, so maybe not.



Re: BILLY. . .Have a HUGE request. . . - MUSICMAKER - 08-01-2007

Don't know, that's why I asked. I cannot find a few issues of C@H to save my life! Don't know if they were mispacked, or what, but, I have made that cheesecake since that recipe came out back in Issue 9, years ago. In fact, made it at a HUGE risk when I had a crowd (a dozen) of New Yorker's here for dinner and every one of them swore it was truly an "authentic" NY Cheesecake. I make this about every 3 to 4 weeks, no fail, the boys just love it. And when their friends come here, they can smell it! It doesn't last long. But back to the amendment, don't know. This is all I can tell you. Don't know what could have been changed or left out. Thanks!

Orange Cream Smoothie
(Cuisine, August 1999, Issue 16, p. 21)

Makes: About 1 Quart Total Time: 10 Minutes Rating: Easy

Pour into Blender:
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup skim milk

Add and Blend Together:
3/4 cup orange sherbet
3/4 cup nonfat frozen vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 cup orange segments*, partially frozen
3/4 cup ice chips

*For orange segments, cut off peel and pith. Section fruit by cutting down each side of segments.

Pour juice and milk into blender.

Add the rest of the ingredients in the order given. Add the ice last so it doesn't jam the blades and freeze up. The ice grinds easier if it sits out for a few minutes — just until it's a little shiny. Hold lid on blender. Begin blending on low first to chop ice. Stop and stir if blender slows or stalls. Continue to blend, increasing speed. Keep blending (stop to stir as needed) until incorporated and ice is very fine — about 30 seconds. The texture should be slush-like.

and here's what they had to say about the problem -

New York Cheesecake

Q. I was excited to see the New York Cheesecake featured in Issue 9. I followed the recipe exactly, but had extra batter. What went wrong?

A. Gina from New York and other loyal readers called me about their problem. My head’s hanging so low in shame, I can hardly type this apology.

I inadvertently gave you the wrong pan dimensions—the right size should’ve read 8" across by 3 1/2" high, not 3".

Thanks Jean, I'm not feeling tip top this morning. It was a night from hell or close enough anyway.

Re: BILLY. . .Have a HUGE request. . . - cjs - 08-01-2007

oh, feel better soon!! After our trip from hell, we both deserve better, don't we??

Re: BILLY. . .Have a HUGE request. . . - bjcotton - 08-01-2007

You betcha. Not only do my muscles ache from lifting Fredia from the floor, but it threw my hip out and we both acquired the green apple foxtrots and vomiting from something we ate last night. When I got up this morning I think I'd have felt better if I just hadn't awakened at all.

Beets with Citrus Glaze
(Cuisine, October 1996, Premier Issue, p. 34)

arrowroot in 1⁄4 cup cold water

Jean, THANK YOU so much for posting all of these! Wasn't aware that you had access to MP, thought Billy was the only lucky one! No hard feelings, ok?

One question, related in the quote...what is this "arrowroot in 1&8260;4 cup cold water"????!!! Grand Marinier, now that's my kind of recipe!

Billy, sorry to hear you are under the weather; hope you are up and about real soon, Fredia, too. It's no fun to be down when it's so nice outside. Here's to a better tomorrow.
