    Can anyone please help me locate 2 recipes from the 1984 My Great Recipe Box Collection..I seem to have misplaced them and have been all over the internet looking for someone who has the collection and is willing to share. The first one I am looking for is a Blueberry Crumb Cake, the second is a brownie with a fudge topping (the fudge layer is about the same height as the brownie). All I remember of the brownie one is that you need semi-sweet chocolate and either condensed or evaporated milk to make the fudge topping and that you pour it over the top after baking the brownie(all ingredients are standard household baking supplies, nothing crazy) I do not remember the card number but could probably figure it out once I finish reorganizing my box (it was dropped). I thank you in advance for your help, if you can respond ASAP, I am freaking out looking for these...I was hopefully going to bake the brownies for Valentines Day.

    Sorry this is a day late, but both of these recipes are for fudge topped brownies. They use chocolate chips & condensed milk for the topping.

    I am looking for a recipe from my mom's set that she lost. It is the carrot cake recipe with cream cheese frosting and I believe that it is from the Blue Ribbon set (the last one). I am not positive though. If anyone could give me this recipe I would greatly appreciate it.

    Sirloin Tip Roast with Bacon

    Preparation time: 10 min.
    Roasting time: 1 1/2 to 2 hrs.
    Oven temperature: 325°F

    2 1/2 - 3 lbs. of boned and tied sirloin tip roast
    2 small cloves of garlic, slivered
    2 Tbsp. Dijon-style mustard
    1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
    6 slices bacon

    1) Cut slits into the roast and insert slivered garlic, placing pieces evenly around the whole roast.
    2) Rub with 1 Tbsp. of the mustard. Sprinkle with the thyme.
    3) Place on roasting rack. Top roast with the bacon, with the ends covering the sides.
    4) Insert meat thermometer into the thickest portion of the meat. Roast at 325°F until meat thermometer registers 145°F for rare, or 160°F for medium to well done.
    5) Transfer meat to serving board or platter. Remove bacon and strings. Replace bacon.
    6) Pour pan drippings into small skillet. Whisk in remaining 1 Tbsp. mustard and heat to boiling. Continue boiling until drippings are shiny and thickened.
    7) Spoon sauce over roast, slice and serve immediately.

    I hope this helps.

    I am wondering if anyone can help me with a missing recipe from this collection. As near as I recall the title was Country Broccoli Cheese Quiche. It is in category # 6 - Quiches, Crepes and Other Greats, either card # 32, 50 or 102 as those are the ones I am missing. Thanks in advance to any one who can help.

    I have the "my great recipes" collection. I have lost one of my favorite recipes though. Does anyone have the recipe for "Hungarian Poppy Seed Pastry" I think that is the name but I can't remember for sure. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Hi Marcha,
    Unfortunately, I don't have that recipe card collection but found this good recipe that maybe you can try to see if it is similar to the one you lost from your collection, while somebody can answer to your request for "Hungarian Poppy Seed Pastry":

    HUNGARIAN PASTRIES RECIPE -,1837,157165-232205,00.html
    1 cake yeast
    1/4 c. lukewarm milk
    1 tsp. sugar
    1 tbsp. flour
    Dissolve yeast in milk; add sugar and flour, stir and set aside. 1 c. sweet cream 4 egg yolks, beaten. Melt butter; add sweet cream and egg yolks. In large mixing bowl, combine butter mixture and yeast mixture. Add: 1 tbsp. sugar 2 tbsp. sour cream. Blend well and then add 4 cups flour. Mix together and divide dough into 4 parts. Cover dough and refrigerate overnight. Next day roll each part 1/2" thick and spread with nut filling or poppy seed filling (listed below). Sprinkle with butter and roll up. Let stand 2 hours to raise. Brush with beaten egg and bake 35 minutes in 350 degree oven. Nut rolls should be placed on greased cookie sheet before raising to avoid toughness.

    1 lb. shelled walnut meats, ground
    1 1/2 c. sugar
    4 egg whites, stiffly beaten
    1 tsp. vanilla
    Beaten egg whites are combined with sugar then vanilla is added. Fold egg whites into nut meats.

    1/2 lb. ground poppy seeds
    3/4 c. sugar
    Warm milk
    Combine poppy seed, sugar and enough warm milk to make spreading easy.
