Recipes You Won't Get Anywhere Else!

Here are two recipes I've dug up for you that supposedly can't be gotten.

I hate that word, can't. Don't you?

First up is this one. Some of the best soup you've ever had!

Soup Is Good Food

Cream of Celery and Tomato Soup
From Louis P. DeGouy

Chef at the Waldorf Astoria in New York for 30 years, he apprenticed with Escoffier

Wash 1 bunch of celery, the stalks scraped and chopped, the leaves finely chopped also. Cook in a small amount of Chicken Stock, free of fat, until tender, and then rub through a fine-meshed wire sieve into a clean saucepan. To this puree, add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, blending thoroughly. Keep hot over hot water, using a double boiler.

Scald 3 cups of sweet milk and 1 1/2 cups of sweet heavy cream with 1 bay leaf, 4 thin slices of onion, 1 whole clove, and 6 sprigs of fresh parsley. Strain through a fine sieve, then add to the celery-tomato puree.

Season to taste with salt and white pepper and 1 scant teaspoon of paprika, and bring to a boil. Remove from the fire, and let cool slightly. Then beat in 4 fresh egg yolks, adding one at a time, beating well after each addition. Return to the fire, bring to a boil, and let boil 2 or 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Taste for seasoning, and serve in a heated soup tureen. Pass a dish of fried well-drained Croutons.

And here is a great one, too.

Pizza Is Good Food
Don't you just hate that your homemade pizza never comes out like commercial pizza?
Well now it can! Don't ask where I got this.


1 1/3 cup Warm water (105F)
1/4 cup Non-fat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 pk. Dry yeast
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil (for dough)
9 ounces Vegetable oil (3 oz. per pan)
Butter flavored Pam

Put yeast, sugar, salt, and dry milk in a large (2 qt.) bowl. Add water and stir to mix well. Allow to sit for two minutes. Add oil and stir again. Add flour and stir until dough forms and flour is absorbed. Turn out on to a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls. In three 9" cake pans, put 3 Oz. of oil in each making sure it is spread evenly. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball to about a 9" circle. Place in cake pans. Spray the outer edge of dough with Pam. Cover with a plate. Place in warm area and allow to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Bake at 450 - 475
