Susan Kuhn from Monkton was looking for a recipe for a dessert that her mother used to serve. As she recalls, it was made with pieces of angel food cake, fruit cocktail and whipped topping, and had the consistency of a pudding once it had been chilled. Barbara Crowley Booth from Baltimore saw Kuhn's request and thought it sounded familiar to her. She searched her recipe files and found one that her mother, Agnes Crowley , had written down for her many years ago. Booth hoped it was what Kuhn was in looking for. Her mother called it "Great and Easy Dessert.

Everyone loves Passover -- all the special foods, the extra-long Seder with lots of discussion, the sense of participation in a continuous and living history.Because this holiday is so important, I always try to underline the occasion by preparing some dish that is as wonderful and outstanding as the holiday itself, recipes fit for the reclining royalty emulated on this occasion.Given the difficult food rules of Passover, not to mention those of kosher, it isn't easy to come up with many extra-special recipes worthy of the occasion.

Susan Rose of Baltimore was looking for a recipe from the 1960s for a refrigerator cake made with fresh strawberries, angel food cake, Jell-O and other ingredients. Ele Piche of Fort Collins, Colo., sent in a recipe for Strawberry Angel Dessert that sounds similar to what Rose was looking for. The recipe was her mother-in-law's and is a family favorite. I tested this recipe using store-bought angel food cake and fresh local strawberries. I used an angel food cake pan with a removable bottom, which made it easier to unmold the cake once it had chilled overnight.

My mother readily admitted that she didn't like to cook, and as a result I have few memories of helping out in the kitchen as a youngster. She was, however, thrilled when I ended up in the food world, and would have been pleased that I have passed my love of cooking on to my son, who in turn is sharing his culinary curiosity with his 3-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter. For Mother's Day, I know that Mike and his two kids will want to serve something special to honor the mom in their house, and I have a new recipe for the occasion.

I have a poundcake recipe that is baked in a large bundt pan. I would like to make smaller ones in mini-bundt pans. Is there a rule of thumb for this conversion? Timing and volume are the two main concerns when changing a baking pan from the one called for in a recipe. There isn't a rigid formula for the timing when changing the size of your bundt pan, so you'll have to check the doneness within a time range. We found Sarah Phillips' pan-conversion chart (which compares baking-pan size and volume)

Vivian Borden from Santa Margarita, Calif., was looking for a recipe for a spongecake that is baked in the traditional angel food or tube pan. She says that many people today seem to confuse a spongecake with an angel food cake. The primary difference between the two cakes is that an angel food cake never contains egg yolks, whereas a spongecake should contain either whole eggs or a combination of yolks and beaten egg whites with the addition of a leavening agent. Jean Peterson from Independence, Ore., sent us her spongecake recipe that she has used for more than 35 years.

Q: I have a problem freezing my freshly-baked fruit pies. How can I prevent them from getting watery when they thaw?A: Judith Choate, author of "The Great American Pie Book," recommends freezing fruit pies only if unbaked. If preparing a pie that calls for a pre-baked filling, such as a berry filling, let that cool before placing the unbaked pie in a plastic bag and sealing. Otherwise, for such pies as apple or pear pie, prepare entire pie up to baking point. Some frozen unbaked pies can actually be baked while still frozen.

What makes angel food cake so appealing to a cake love who's watching dietary fat intake is that it contains no butter, oil or egg yolks. The secret ingredient is egg whites. At only 16 calories, an egg white has zero fat but more than half the total protein of a whole egg. Still, for a cake to qualify as angel food, the whites must be properly beaten and the other ingredients carefully folded into them.The process involves first beating the whites to the foamy stage, when white "suds" start to form.
