Dear SOS: Many lemon bars are either too sweet or much too tangy. Euro Pane's is just the perfect combination. The base is crumbly yet firm. They also serve really large portions. I always love picking up a couple and putting them in the fridge. They taste so much better cold, well at least for me. There have been many times when these bars run out, so I always have to call to make sure they can set aside a couple. I'm sure this bar will become a staple in dessert menus in many homes.

Question: Please tell me the nutritive values of jicama? What is the shelf life before cutting and how is it best kept after it has been cut? Answer: In "Fresh Produce A to Z" (Lane Publishing: 1987, $6.95) the editors of Sunset magazine and books say, "Jicama is high in potassium and a fair source of Vitamin C. One cup of shredded raw jicama contains about 50 calories. "Store whole jicama, unwashed, in a cool (50 degree), dark, dry place for up to three weeks.

Step 1: Wash and scrub the lemons or limes; there's often a thin layer of wax or other preservative on the peel. Cut each fruit nearly into four pieces by making two cuts at right angles to each other from one end of the fruit almost to the other, leaving enough uncut that fruit can be opened without falling apart, about 1/2 inch. Step 2: Generously salt the exposed flesh, using at least three tablespoons per pound of lemons.

A bowl of refreshing punch is the ideal beverage for a large gathering--be it a bridal shower, birthday party or other warm weather celebration. Non-alcoholic punches are a popular alternative to serving liquor. Those with alcohol are certainly more economical than an open bar or serving wine. Apricot nectar, orange and pineapple juices, cream of coconut and rum form the base of Cream-Of-Coconut Fruit Punch. Club soda adds the sparkle.
