  • Readers helping readers find lost recipes

    Readers helping readers find lost recipes
    This column is called the "Daley Question" — and the one type of question I receive far more often than any other concerns recipes: Recipes lost, recipes remembered, recipes found, recipes tinkered with. Sometimes I can help. Sometimes I can't...

     Bell's Pumpkin Peach Ale a '(screw) you' to Anheuser-Busch ad
    Bell's Brewery only made 48 bottles of its newest beer, but that's because it is about a message as much as what's inside the bottle. "It's a (screw) you to Anheuser-Busch," Bell's founder Larry Bell said. "Because they sent us a (screw) you." Bell'...

    Mint cookie request sparks surprises
    Q: My grandmother used to make a drop cookie (back in the '50s and '60s) that had a mint wafer in it and a walnut half on top. The walnut may have been her addition, not sure. They were made with Rockwood mint wafers and may have been called Mint...
