Dear Readers: Watching your SALT INTAKE? Here is a longtime Heloise recipe that my readers love. It's Heloise's No-Salt Spice Substitute. Here's what you need:

5 teaspoons onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

1/2 teaspoon celery seeds

Mix all ingredients and put in an airtight container, like an old spice jar. Don't store this or any spice near the stove; the heat can cause the flavor to diminish. Some of my other favorite recipes are found in my pamphlet Heloise's All-Time Favorite Recipes. To get a copy, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (61 cents) envelope to: Heloise/All-Time, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Stow these tasty spices in a pretty canning jar with a bow or ribbon, and voila! Instant gift! -- Heloise


Dear Heloise: I used a spreadsheet on my computer to make up a grocery list. I made columns for each category, such as "dairy," ''meat," etc. I saved it, and now when I go to the grocery store, all I have to do is print out my list and circle the things I need to get.

While I am shopping, I can write in things I buy that weren't on the list, and when I get on the computer again, I can edit the list and add these items for future trips to the store. -- Janis Potter, San Angelo, Texas
