Debbie Misterka of Amherst, Mass., requested a recipe for a chocolate Coca-Cola cake that she and her son had enjoyed at the Cracker Barrel restaurant. We received many submissions in response to her query, all made almost exactly the same way. I tested the recipe for "Coke Cake" sent in by Louise Dunn from Fayetteville, Ark. She is 94 years old and is still making this moist and delicious cake. Once you see how easy it is to prepare and how good it tastes, you will understand why so many readers had a version they wanted to share from their collections.

Say what you will about the snow -- that it is cold, slippery and a nuisance. It also makes excellent ice cream. I found this out recently when the tradition of making ice cream with snow returned to our home. To make this ice cream, you need a lot of snow and a casual "why worry" attitude. You can't fret over what might be in the snow. You can't think about the possibility of particulates from coal-burning power plants in the Midwest traveling in the upper atmosphere to Maryland and descending in your backyard as "acid snowflakes."

Item: General Foods Cappuccino Coolers What you get: 6 one-serving packets Cost: About $2.25 Preparation time: Stir and serve Review: Last summer, on forays into coffee bars, I became addicted to flavored iced coffee. When I saw General Foods' mixes for "Sweetened Instant Iced Cappuccino," I wondered if one could duplicate the same great taste at home. With friends, I tried the French Vanilla and Chocolate flavors. I thought the French Vanilla was dead-on, with the right mix of coffee and milk, as did a few others.

Ice cream bars messy but marvelous Item: Nestle Tandem ice cream bars What you get: 4 bars Cost: About $3.75 Preparation time: Serve right out of freezer Review: For some people, especially children, ice cream never goes out of season. Nestle's newest frozen treats can definitely be enjoyed no matter what the weather. The Tandem bars are, as the name suggests, two flavors in one. We tried the vanilla-chip sandwiches -- one part chocolate chip ice cream between two chocolate wafers, the other vanilla ice cream coated with Nestle chocolate and cookie bits.

America's sweet tooth isn't a recent development.Amelia Simmons' "American Cookery" was delightfully heavy on cakes, puddings, pies, tarts and trifles. Cinnamon, nutmeg and mace were the most common spices, and rose water was used then much the way vanilla is now. Butter was used with glorious abandon, and even brandy made its way into the kitchen on occasion.Chocolate, however, is never mentioned.A cake she called "plain cake" is close to what is now called a poundcake. Her concise recipe was thus: "Three quarters of a pound of sugar, 1 pound of butter, and 6 eggs, worked into a pound of flour."

1995 Beringer Chardonnay, Napa Valley ($12).This is becoming a very predictable recommendation. Another year, another fine chardonnay from Beringer. Because it's made in large quantities, you can find it almost anywhere, but it bears none of the obvious signs of mass production. There's fine intensity, a delicate balance of oak and fruit, and well-integrated nuances of vanilla, apple and toast. Beringer continues to be one of the most reliable names in California wine.Pub Date: 8/03/97@

Dont be alarmed by the funny-looking stuff on the top; thats real cream, something we dont see much in todays dairy products.

Brownies are easy to make. Just buy a mix and stir it up: A few minutes in the oven and what do you have?Some average chocolate squares that sort of lie there in the pan.You can do better than that.You can make brownies from scratch that will sit up and bark. They may take a little more time, but they cost about a third less and have a better flavor than the mix.The following recipe was devised for a training class for Indiana high school home economics instructors. Besides producing great-tasting brownies, it illustrates why ingredients for homemade brownies are superior to those in the mixes, especially if you read the labels.
