Editor’s note: Like many of us, Gin has been persevering through cold, spotty internet service and power outages. As such, she couldn’t submit a fresh column this week. But we all know how much Gin loves classic recipes, so we’re offering some from one of her previous columns. This column first appeared July 31, 2013.

Hi Gin,

If you have recipes or tips to share, or a request, please send to: Conversations with Gin, P.O. Box 334, Clute, TX. 77531, or e-mail to: ginscolumn@hotmail.com.
