This meatloaf recipe, for Nancy V. Webb, sounds like a great way to feed a hungry family. Peggy Dosk sent us the recipe. She says shredded wheat boxes contains packets of four squares each. Use two of those squares in the recipe, she says.

Marge De Lancey of Baltimore asked us for an elegant strawberry soup recipe. Here is one from an "anonymous reader."
2 quarts strawberries, pureed
1 pint half and half
1/2 pint sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
Mix ingredients together in a glass bowl and swirl. Do not swirl too much -- the mixture should have a marbled appearance.
* Rosemary Fitzpatrick of Catonsville is looking for a side dish recipe containing mushrooms and pecans. The recipe probably came from a newspaper about eight years ago, she says.
* Beth Hannon of Baltimore needs two recipes. The first is for a Chocolate Cream Pie recipe from a Cool Whip package -- not to be confused with the Chocolate Dream Pie by Dream Whip. It required no cooking, only chilling in the refrigerator. Ingredients included a container of Cool Whip, four ounces of baker's chocolate, a graham cracker crust.
The second recipe is from a Bisquick box for an easy cookie topped with jam. There were no nuts in the recipe and a dollop of jam went on top of each cookie before baking.

* Rodney Lasley of Corydon, In., says he's been pining away for a good rice pudding recipe since he left Baltimore about three years ago. The recipe he wants appeared in a paper about three to four years ago. "It had a lot of three's in the measurements, such as three cups milk, three cups rice and three cups sugar," he said.
* Diana Hamilton of Catonsville is searching for a casserole called spaghetti pie. The spaghetti forms a crust to hold a meat sauce. She's also looking for a ground nut stew, the national dish of Senegal. This recipe calls for either peanuts or peanut butter.
