Q: I cannot locate Ken’s Lite Honey Dijon salad dressing. I have tried several locations of Publix and Kroger near the Alpharetta/Canton area, to no avail. Every other dressing with honey Dijon doesn’t come close to Ken’s Lite. Please help me find this so I can enjoy salad at home once again. Thank you. Diana Schuyler, email
A: Diana, I’m not sure if you want Ken’s Steak House Lite Honey-Mustard dressing or Ken’s Light Options Honey-Dijon dressing. You can get either one by ordering them through walmart.com, and requesting that the item be shipped to the store location most convenient to you. You can pick it up within two days without any shipping charges. A 9-ounce bottle of Ken’s Light Options Honey-Dijon costs $2.20. Ken’s Lite and Light Options dressings boast 50 percent less fat and 33 percent fewer calories than the regular dressing. The Walmart order number you want is 009285033. Ken’s Lite Honey- Mustard dressing costs $3.28 for 16 ounces. That Walmart order number is 552122638.
Q: I’ve only cooked a turkey twice, and I’ve got to cook one this Thanksgiving. I’ve been looking through some old family recipes and want to try one using cheesecloth. This is a new product for me. Can you tell me where I can find cheesecloth that I can use to cook with? I’m running out of time, so I’ll need to find it around Atlanta, if possible. Thanks. Debra Johnston, email
A: Cheesecloth with its loose weaving is used in food preparation to hold herb bundles together and as a strainer for yogurt and certain cheeses. For your purposes, the cheesecloth, especially if it’s kept moist, can act to keep your turkey from getting dry by insulating the meat and slowing down the cooking. I found an FDA-approved cheesecloth that’s all-cotton and completely lint free at Bed Bath and Beyond, 1235 Caroline St., Atlanta, 404-522-3210. Regency Naturals cheesecloth is 9 square feet for $3.99.
Q: I hope you can help me. My family loves the flavor of chipotle peppers, but when I buy a can, it goes to waste. I usually need only a small amount. I used to have the same problem with anchovies and tomato paste, but now those come in a tube, which is so convenient when you need a little. I would love to find chipotle paste in a tube but, so far, I’ve had no luck. Is this even available? If not, it should be. I live near the north Atlanta suburbs, but I’m willing to travel to find this. Thank you. L. M. Cochran, email
A: Happily, your idea is a reality, and you won’t have to go far to find it. Olo’s all-natural chipotle paste comes in a handy 4-ounce tube so you’ll never have to waste the smoky peppers again. Produced in Mexico, the paste is made with chipotle peppers, water, salt and citric acid. Olo’s sells for $7 at Sur La Table, 1082 North Point Circle, Alpharetta, 678-380-0086.
Q: My granddaughter wants me to find her a hair conditioner called Mane ‘n Tail. I’m not familiar with this. Can you tell me where to find this product? My driving is limited to daytime, so I’d like to buy it somewhere near Brookhaven. Thank you so much. M. Campbell, email
A: This rich moisturizer and texturizer enjoys legions of fans who use it on themselves as well as on their horses and dogs. You can find a 32-ounce bottle of the original Mane ‘n Tail for $5.97 at Walmart Supercenter, 1871 Chamblee Tucker Road, 770-455-0422.
