Years ago I was able to get Royal pie mixes. I can't find them any more. I am in New Mexico and she lives in New York, She told me Royal had a Salted Caramel Dessert. Does anyone have suggestion where I could purchase this? Thanks.

I used to use My-t-Fine lemon pie mixes. I could find them in Lubbock but can't find them in Amarillo. Anybody have any suggestions on where to find the My-T-Fine product.

Hi Nancy, I'm trying to find the grape salad recipe that was posted here some time ago, but I had no luck using your search site for recipes. If one of you wonderful cooks knows what newsletter it was in, or would post the recipe again I would be grateful. Am going to a barbecue and thought I would bring this salad, if I knew how to make it. Thanks,
