Harvest pound cake is the lost recipe Kris Gray of Dunedin wanted to find. Hopefully the recipe printed here from Kate Mitchell of Tampa is it. Kate made it her own by adding 1 cup of dried cranberries, an addition that really gives this cake a fall feel. This is a very moist cake and, aside from peeling and chopping apples, comes together quickly. I used Granny Smith apples and pecans in my version; walnuts would work just as well. The caramel glaze is just plain delicious. Cook it for exactly the time called for, otherwise it will harden too much on the cake. If you don't use all of it on the cake, it would be delicious over ice cream.
Lori Thompson of New Port Richey would like the recipes for Bob Evans' banana and pumpkin breads. She says they are really moist and quite tasty. . . . Edward Ratajczak, also of New Port Richey, enjoyed a cream turkey with biscuits dish last year after Thanksgiving. It had a turkey pot pie or turkey a la king filling with biscuits on top. What he had was prepared in a large roaster and he would like a recipe for a smaller size.
