HELOISE GETS THE HINTS

BY CARRIE MACMILLAN

Had she not taken over her mother's nationally syndicated newspaper column, Heloise — yes, just her first name adorns her American Express card — might have become a computer programmer.

HELOISE CHOCOLATE PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

HELOISE TRIPLE DECKED GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH
Why stop with only two pieces of bread and one slice of cheese!! Here is one of my own "creations" that I think I'm the only one who like the taste. You can make it your own, with any type of cheese, add or delete to your taste buds.

Gelatin Salad

Matzo Meal Pancakes

Here is the recipe my mother had in her cook book (which I still use by the way!) with her writing on it. She said to NEVER throw this one away, and I haven't! It brings back many many warm memories to see her writing on this and think about being in the kitchen with her while she made them. She would tell me stories about some of our family recipes, how I wish I had written them down! But, I was only a child and they did not mean much to me then.

Gelatin Salad

Amelis Bowles Jello Salad

Here is the typed copy of my grandmothers ( Amelia H. Bowles) favorite gelatin salad. I remember her making it! It taste better than it sounds, and it really looks pretty on a plate!

Love your high-priced coffee, but don't want to spend the money? Make your own at home and save $5 to $10 a week!

You can easily create special flavors, such as Mocha, Vienna, Coffee Olé, or even a favorite of mine, low-calorie Café au Lait.

If tea is your preference, my pamphlet, Heloise's Flavored Coffee and Teas is also filled with recipes for Spiced tea, Friendship tea and more. Click here for more information.

Heloise Vegatarian Lifestyle

Heloise offers vegetarian lifestyle hints


By Jessica Belasco/San Antonio Express-News/Photography by Helen L. Montoya/San Antonio Express-News


When I asked Heloise to talk with me about her vegetarian lifestyle, I assume she'll want to meet at one of San Antonio's few vegetarian restaurants or at least at a veggie-friendly place. Instead, she suggests lunch at a downtown steakhouse.

HINT OF THE MONTH


What to Do with Empty Laundry Detergent Bottles?
These bottles can be repurposed in many ways. You can cut the top off one with a serrated knife and use the lower half to start seedlings—just poke a few drain holes in the bottom and fill it with dirt. Or, leave it as is, rinse, let dry, then fill with sand or clay cat litter to store in your car. The added weight in your trunk makes driving safer in the winter and you can pour out the contents to give your tires traction in the snow. Click here for more Heloise Hints in Good Housekeeping.

GoodHousekeeping Slideshow



KITCHEN Keep a large bottle of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (available at supermarkets and drug stores) under the kitchen sink. It has multiple uses: sanitize plastic cutting boards, wipe off dirty can opener blades and to kill bacteria in the drain. Be aware that it may lighten surfaces.

BATH
For just pennies, you can clean the bathroom sink, bathtub and shower. Buy the cheapest hair shampoo you can (look for sales). I use a plastic scrubber to apply straight from the bottle, then rinse off. Do this after showering and the gunk will not build up!

LAUNDRY
For under a quarter, you can make prewash stain remover for washable clothes! Mix 1/3 nonsudsing/clear ammonia, 1/3 dishwashing liquid (NOT dishwasher liquid or gel), 1/3 water. Pour into a clearly labeled spray bottle. Apply to stains and allow to sit for only 5 minutes, then wash ASAP.
