Please note the Pumpkin Cheese Bar Cake recipe from the January/February '86 issue neglected to inform you where to add the 16 ounce can of pumpkin. The pumpkin should be added with the second mixture including sweetened condensed milk, eggs, etc. I hope this did not cause anyone trying the recipe any inconvenience.

I commend our callers for supplying us with an excellent choice of recipes for this issue.. . we had more recipes than eight pages could hold. Hopefully, some of the extras can be published throughout the year.

If You are a steady listener, you are aware of the many outings Dave and I have had with the Open Line and other live broadcasts. One example is the live broadcast we did from Winifreds Restaurant. We would like to congratulate Leah Rae Highly from Cedar Rapids. As part of the grand prize we have published the winning recipe on page one. I would like to thank Winifreds Restaurant and the Linn County Pork Producers for their efforts and support in our search for a winning pork recipe.

I hope by now all of the snow has melted and spring is starting to bloom for each of you!
