New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 20, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas ^CHHeralcEZeitungC^^ Timesaving Recipes Put Healthy Meals On the Table at the End af a Long Day QinXTjoa Know Your Presidents Everyone wants to put a healthy, delicious meal on the table each night, but after a long day at work, who has the time to cook? If there is time, who really wants to spend hours in the kitchen? To help people solve this daily dilemma, Kathy Farrell-Kingsley and the editors of Woman Is Day have created “The Woman's Day® Cookbook:    Great Recipes, Bright Ideas, and Healthy Choices for Today’s Cook” (Viking/Round Stone Press). It offers more than 700 recipes and innovative techniques to help people easily prepare nutritious meals their family will enjoy. “Our readers want timesaving recipes, and that was the groundwork for this book,” says Elizabeth Alston, Woman’s Day food editor and author of several cookbooks. “We want to save people time and remove that 4 o’clock stress.” The book offers recipes for everything from beef to grains and beans to vegetables, all of which have been tested in the Woman's Day kitchens. To make it easy for people to select a dish to prepare, the recipes have been divided into categories: easy, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, microwave, low-fat, make-ahead, one-pot and classic. The book also has make-ahead tips for various recipes, suggestions for cooks and a nutritional analysis for each dish. “Some of the Woman s Day special things we’ve incorporated,” Alston explains, "are Cook Once, Eat Twice, where people set aside half of the food they’ve prepared to be used in another meal, and Investment Cooking, where people spend three or four hours preparing dishes with the same basic ingredients. “We also give simple menus for entertaining and discuss hosting celebrations, giving schedules beginning three weeks ahead,” Alston adds. The book offers something for every cook, according to Alston. With normal ingredients and easy cooking techniques, there is a wide variety of flavors, from the simple to the exotic. These Cook Once, Eat Twice recipes offer two delicious meals for the family with a minimum amount of work. CORNED BEEF DINNER Serves 4 with leftovers I    medium-size onion, peeled and studded with 4 whole cloves I    large carrot, cut into chunks 1    rib celery, cut into chunks 2    bay leaves (each VA inches long) 4-pound corned-beef brisket 4    small onions, peeled I    small head green cabbage (I V* pounds), cut into 6 wedges 8    small potatoes (about I pound), peeled 4    small parsnips (about 8 ounces), peeled and halved 3    large carrots, halved 4    small beets (about 12 ounces), freshly boiled and peeled Accompaniment: creamy Dijon-mustard spread or horseradish sauce (optional) In an 8-quart pot, bring 4 quarts of water and the first 4 ingredients to a boil. Add the brisket and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer (don’t boil), partially covered, for about 3 hours. Remove the brisket to a cutting board and cover loosely with foil to keep Cooking for Two Can Bo Easy — and Healthy Many households today are composed of two people — couples, roommates, retirees, single parents and their child, as well as many other combinations of twosomes. Oftentimes, cooking for two people is difficult. Recipe books offer dishes that yield six or more servings, which is frequently too much food for a two-person household. “Betty Crocker’s New Choices for Two” (Macmillan) offers recipes tailored for two people. These recipes are designed to help people eat more healthfully, as well as provide new meal ideas. Every recipe balances sensible amounts of calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium and fiber. Easy-to-follow symbols indicate dishes that are low in calories, fat, sodium and cholesterol and high in fiber. Eliminating the amount of fat found in foods is the first step in losing weight. It is also important that people cook food in healthy ways. According to the author, the way people cook is almost as important as what they cook. The book offers some easy ways to cook in an effort to reduce fat intake: • Cut by one-fourth the amount of fat or oil called for in a recipe. • Invest in nonstick cookware. • Coo|f: onions, garlic or chopped vegetables in water, apple juice, flavored vinegars or wine instead of using oil, butter or margarine to saute. • Choose herbs and spices, mustard, lemon juice, or flavored vinegars instead of butter, oils or salt to spike foods that need a splash of flavor. • Choose low-fat or nonfat versions of dairy products. Most dairy items offer reduced-fat options. “New Choices for Two” offers recipe ideas for every meal of the day, as well as salads, side dishes and snacks. It also includes a guide to eating right, a nutrition table and a nutrition glossary. The following breakfast recipes are a wonderful way to treat a spouse, roommate, child or parent to an extra- special morning meal. Antiques Q. I have a dinner menu from the Hindenberg in 1936. Would it have any value? A. Collectors involved in what is known as “disaster collecting” might be interested in your keepsake. The Hindenberg zeppelin crashed as it landed in Lakehurst, N.J., on May 6, 1937. * * * Q. My bowl is 3 inches high and 9 inches in diameter.

It is made of colored beads that are pinned onto plastic balls shaped like bananas, grapes and oranges. Do you know anything about them? A. Faux fruit has been a favorite in decorating since the turn of the century. After plastic was invented, beaded fruit replaced the stone, wood and velvet versions. In the 1940s and ’50s, craft kits were sold to make beaded fruit at home. Watch for plums, strawberries, cherries, limes, peaches and even pineapples. Vegetables exist as well. A banana in good condition sells for $40 in a New York City shop, and much less at a house sale. * * * warm. Discard the onion, carrot, celery, and bay leaves from the cooking liquid. Return the cooking liquid to a boil. Add the small onions and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cabbage, potatoes, parsnips, and carrots and simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender.

My spinet-type pump organ says “Peloubet, Pelion & Co.** When and where did Peloubet, Pelion work? A. Peloubet, Pelton & Co. worked on Broadway in New York City in the early to mid-1800s. Home Tips CROSS-STITCHING — I would like to share four tips about cross-stitching: 1. Tape the color/symbol guide to the cardboard accompanying the kit, leaving a 2-inch margin. Punch holes in the margin and hang the corresponding colors. 2. Use one thread instead of two. Double it and thread the loop through the eye of the needle, stick the needle through the loop and pull the thread evenly. The thread is the right length, tangles less and the needle will not become unthreaded. 3. Thread needles with the various colors and insert next to the symbols on the guide. This saves threading needles when changing colors. 4. Use small, curved manicure scissors for cutting the thread. The scissors stay sharp, cut close and using them reduces the danger of cutting your work. Hilda B., Colorado Springs, Colo. STEEL DOORS — We replaced our outside wooden doors to the house with steel doors. The back door has nine panes of glass that the sun would shine through all the time, but I could not put up a curtain rod on the steel door without making permanent holes. Solution! I bought two 21^-inch clear plastic suction cups with hooks on them, the kind you use to hang window decorations. I placed one cm each side above the door window and bent the hooks so that it would hold a cafe rod. It worked great. I could remove the curtain rod anytime I wanted without damage to the door. Janie G., Dunwoody, Ga. COLOR-COORDINATED — My family all drive the same make of car. All of our keys are identical and we all have spares for each other’s cars. I took some spray paint and painted the keys the same color as the car (i.e., mine is gray so I have a gray key head). CARDS AND COLLECTING “You look great! Who’s your tailor?” LGIN AYLOR LAKERS' The 1971-72Toppsbasketballsetused, along with an odd lettering style for the team name, different color inks in the players’ names, which is why in black and white“ELGIN BAYLOR” seems to read “LGIN AYLOR” ... Some collectors say that such poor design helped doom basketball cards as collectibles until the late- 1980s revival of interest ... Still, because of age and the number of Hall of Earners and rookies in the set, the 264-card edition is worth more titan $700 today, with Baylor’s card, #10, selling for up to $25 ... The set included ABA players as well as NBA players ... Baylor spent his great 14 ^year career entirely with the Lakers..
