Sue Sober of Baltimore was in search of the recipe for the potato chip cookies that were sold at Hutzler's department store. The last of the legendary department stores that provided goods and services to Baltimoreans for 132 years, closed over three decades ago. Many people still have fond memories of not only of the merchandise side of the store but its restaurants, tea rooms and bakeries. As luck would have it, Joyce Smith of Arbutus, who worked at Hutzler's in Westview until it closed in the late 1980s, sent in a recipe for the potato chip cookies.

"Watch your rods," I called. Almost instantly the two side lines went off."Fish on!" cried someone, and by the time fishermen got to the rods and started bringing the fish in, two rods in the stern rod-holders arched as chubby 2-pound bluefish tried to separate me from my lures.I eased my Catherine M into the deeper water off Love Point as the fishermen fought the fish to the fish box. We reset the lines and I headed the boat back toward the fish.One of the party came into the cabin and asked how I knew the fish were going to bite.

Gay wrote that the county "will not be following the recommendations" in six of the eight areas that the fact-finder addressed.

Betty Jackson of La Porte, Ind., was trying to locate a recipe for a cheesecake that she used to purchase at a Chicago bakery but that they no longer carry. When she inquired, she was told the cake was made with cheese, but not cream cheese, and the bakery would not give her any specifics. She said the cake was somewhat taller then a normal cheesecake, perhaps by about 3 inches, and had a lighter texture. Carol Cipriani of South Bend, Ind., sent in her recipe for an Italian-style cheesecake made with ricotta cheese that she thought might be what Jackson was looking for. It has a graham cracker crust like many American-style cheesecakes, but Cipriani's recipe calls for fresh ricotta instead of cream cheese.

Ronald Jasinski of New Hartford, N.Y., was in search of a recipe for a lamb and bean casserole. He said his late uncle used to make the dish, but no one in his extended family has his recipe. Jasinski did not provide me with much detail about his uncle's casserole - only that the whole family loved it - so I decided to track down a recipe for a classic lamb and bean stew for him to try. I came across an article originally published in The New York Times in November 1997 by Florence Fabricant with the headline " Stew: Warming, Comforting And Now, Fashionable.

Alice McKeehan of Elkhart, Ind., wanted help locating a recipe for making a Twinkie cake. Her friend who used to make it has died, and McKeehan cannot find her copy of the recipe. All she can really remember is that it was an easy, no-bake cake that had Hostess' Twinkies as the base layer. According to the Hostess website, the Continental Baking Co. first made Twinkies in 1930. Although Hostess briefly went out of business in 2012 amid bankruptcy and an employee strike, Twinkies are back on the shelves and have been a part of the American snack food culture for the better part of a century.

Sheila Hunter of Severna Park was hoping someone would have the recipe for a one-dish baked pasta entree that does not require cooking the pasta first. She said the recipe was printed on the label of a pasta sauce (she doesn't recall which one) back in the 1990s. Hunter hasn't been able to find the pasta sauce in stores for a long time and did not write down the recipe because she always just followed the directions on the jar. She said the dish was easy and made a tasty hot main dish that could feed a family of five.

Mary Beth York from Niles, Mich., was copying some old recipes a friend had collected over the years and stuck in the back of a cookbook from 1942 when she came across one called "Crisco Breath o' Spring" cake. Unfortunately, there was some damage to the recipe and she was unable to read parts of it. Apparently, the recipe was on the label of a can of Crisco, but when York contacted the Crisco company, she was told that they do not save all their old recipes and no longer had the one she was looking for. York was hoping someone still had the recipe and would be willing to share it with her. Diane Jensen from Alamogordo, N.M., sent in the recipe for the cake York was looking for that Jensen said was copied from a photograph of the original Crisco advertisement from 1945.
