I forgot - there was one more recipe I wanted to share from the Sweet Moment Desserts pamphlet cookbook: Coconut Pecan Torte. It looks good (right hand side, yellow square thing), though I think the caption is a bit optimistic:
An elegant dessert layers of ladyfingers and extra rich pudding.
1 package Jell-O Vanilla or Coconut Cream Pudding and Pie Filling
1 1/2 cups milk
24 ladyfingers, split (think they have these at Target?)
1/4 cup orange juice
2/3 cup softened butter
2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/8 tsp. almond extract
1/2 cup very finely chopped pecans
2 cups Baker's Fine-grated coconut, toasted
Prepared Dream Whip Topping
Prepare Jell-O pudding as directed on package, using only 1 1/2 cups milk. Remove from heat. Cover surface with wax paper and cool. Line an 8-inch square dish or pan with several layers of wax paper, allowing paper to extend as 2-inch tabs above edge of dish. Line bottom and sides of dish with some ladyfingers. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons orange juice.
Cream butter until light and fluffy. Alternately add sugar and pudding; then add almond extract, pecans, and coconut. Spread about 1/3 of mixture on ladyfingers. Arrange half of remaining ladyfingers on mixture. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon orange juice. Top with another layer of pudding mixture. Add remaining ladyfingers, orange juice, and pudding mixture in that order. Chill thoroughly, at least 4 hours. Grasp paper tabs to remove from dish. Lift onto serving platter; slide wax paper from underneath. Garnish with prepared Dream Whip, if desired. Makes 12 large or 18 small servings. (That's funny.)
In this cookbook were a couple yellowed newspaper clippings on hair care. Here's one for
A Lovelier You
Shampoo once a week if the scalp is dry, twice weekly if it is oily. There is wisdom, too, in using an antibacterial, non-alkaline shampoo - one with the pH factor which acts to normalize the scalp's protective acid mantle, and with three percent hexachlorophene to control bacteria.
Um, why not just wash it every day? Maybe it's just me, but that seems easier than hexacholorwhatever. I think this dessert would make A Happier You, though.
I read Rachel Ward's teen thriller Numbers. WOW. Heroine sees the date people are going to die when she looks at them. Fantastic.
