USEFUL RECIPES. LIGHT PASTBY.—To ensure pastry being light and digestible, it is better to use the irolk of an egg and one tablespoonful of emon-juice, instead of baking-powder. The yolk of the egg contains mineral matter which takes the place of soda in baking- powder, and the lemon-juice that of tartaric acid. These answer the same purpose as baking-powder, with the advantage that the pastry can stand for a time before baking, whereas the pastry with baking-powder must go into the oven as quickly as possible. STUVTED AND ROLLED BEEFSTEAK.—Take 21b. of steak about one inch thick, salt and pepper, one good-siied onion, two tablespoon- fuls of breadcrumbs, one teaspoonful of minced parsley, and just a dust of sweet herbs. Lay the steak flat on a board and sprinkle with salt and pepper, mince the onion, and mix with the other ingredients. Season to taste and spread over the steak. roll up the steak and secure firmly with string, put it into a saucepan with a pint of boiling water and simmer very slowly for one hour and a half to two hours. Take off the string and dish up. Remove any fat from the gravy, add a little flour to thicken, and seasoning. Boil up, and pour over the steak. SCOTCH MAHHALADE.—To each pound of bitter oranges allow one lemon, 31b. of cane sugar and 11 teacupfuls of cold water. Cut the oranges through, taking out all the pips, then slice very thinly—also slice the lemons —and put in a basin, covering with cold water, quantity as stated; leave this for 24 hours. Then boil for three-quarters of an hour, pour again into the basin, and leave for another 24 hours. Finally boil for one hour, adding the sugar, and the orange pips tied in a piece of muslin;, they should remain in long enough to extract their goodness. If teal cane sugar is used it will be perfectly elear. [ 8-
