THIS TEMPTING STRAWBERRY Bavarian pit ferinft _ health with a cereal pie crust. j Fresh Strawberry Bavarian Pie Calls for Cereal and Milk In Mothers' Daily Diet By GAYNOR MADDOX Chances are your mother needs to be reminded that cereal and milk in her diet are still necessary. Mrs. Doreen Rohrig, of Los Angeles, gave us the recipe below. She makes certain her husband and two small children get cereal and milk often. This combination, she says, is one of the most economical ways to put calcium, minerals and valuable vitamins into their diet. Fresh Strawberry Bavarian Pie (no baking needed) Crumb Crust: Four cups cornflakes or pre-sweetened cornflakes y 4 cup sugar (omit when using pre- sweetened cereal), 1-3 cup melted or very soft butter or margarine.

Press mixture evenly into 8-inch pie dish, making bottom slightly thicker than sides. Chill thoroughly before adding filling. Filling: One tablespoon unflavored gelatin, V\ cup cold water, IVi cups milk, 2 eggs, separated: yt cup sugar, y 4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, y a cup heavy-whipping cream, 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries, ft cup chopped nuts, if desired.

Cook over hot water until mixture coats a metal spoon, about 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Add -gelatin and stir until dissolved. Chill. Add pure vanilla extract and mix well. Beat egg whites stiff and gradually fold in remaining sugar. Whip cream until stiff. Gradually fold egg whites, whipped cream, strawberries and nuts into slightly thickened gelatin mixture.

Put about y 4 cup of the avocado dip on each of 4 salad-size plates; surround with some of the corn chips separately. Makes 4 servings. Aluminum Foil Handy For Baking Fish. Steak By CECILY BROWN STONE . Associated Frew Food Editor SftAL-tfAKING FISH is our lau*t e*t discovery. You arrange fish cte&ks on aluminum foil, wrap them with a tight seal and put them in the oven- Result: no pan to scrub when dish-washing time comes around. That's why we say every fish can have a silver lining these days. At serving time, the fish in its foil may be transferred from the oven to your platter, and not a whiff of fish odor will linger on the serving dish. An here's another cheerful point .about baking in foil. Sealing the fish in its silver package, along with seasonings, lets none of the goodness escape. For instance, in today's recipe, the halibut is moist and tender and the mushrooms used with it have a concentrated flavor that's delightful. Open the package right at the table, after it comes out of the oven, using a scissors or a small sharp knife. Your family will oh. and ah! at the wonderful aroma that comes from the seal-baking. You can also use aluminum foil to advantage when you store fish in the refrigerator before cooking. Just remove the fish from its wrappings and package it tightly in the foil; store the package in the coldest place in the refrigerator. Even if you put it right next to other foods there will be no danger of fish odor spreading. When we tried the good oven recipe we are giving you, we baked potatoes along with the fish. We also had stewed tomatoes and a green salad. While we were fixing the tomatoes, a friend of ours from the South came into the kitchen and asked us how we were going to "tighten" them. When we looked amused, she told us that when she worked as a dietician at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee, every time she put stewed tomatoes on the menu, the head chef would come and say "What sort of tightnim' you want in these tomatoes? Bread crumbs or flour?" We used neither—just topped the heated seasoned canned tomatoes with butter-browned croutons and served them in sauce dishes. Our fish recipe calls for halibut steaks; we chose fresh ones, but if you can't get these, buy the widely available frozen variety. HALIBUT STEAKS WITH MUSHROOM IN FOIL Ingredients: 2 pounds halibut steaks about %-inch thick (fresh or frozen), 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, 2 small onions (sliced thin), one 3-ounce can broiled sliced mushrooms (drained), % teaspoon salt, freshly-ground pepper, H teaspoon ground mixed herbs for seasoning fish. H cup cream or evaporated milk. Method: If ftth it frozen, thaw it. Place fish steak* in the center of a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Melt butter in 8-inch skillet; separate onion slices into rings and add. Drain mushrooms and add to skillet. Cook onion* and mushrooms light ov«r low heat, about 3 minutes; arrange around fish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper to taste and mixed herbs. Rinse the skillet with the cream and pour over fish. Bring the foil up over the lish and, using drugstore fold, seal to form tight package. Place in shallow pan and bake in moderate (375F) oven l hour. When done, slip package onto a hot platter. Open at table, turning back foil. Makes 6 servings. 'Piquant' Pork Chops Easy to Cook So simple to cook pork chops this way. and so good! PORK CHOPS PIQUANT Ingredients: 4 rib pork chops (about Va-inch thick), \' 2 teaspoon sail, a tablespoon finely minced onion, V s teaspoon pepper, y B teaspoon dried crushed oregano. one 3-ounce can sliced broiled mushrooms, 1 lemon (very thinly sliced), 2 teaspoons cornstarch, Vi cup water.
