I haven’t found a recipe for the Strawberry Bomb. A bomb is a moulded ice cream with an outer shell of one flavor and an inner filling of a different one. I assume that one of them was strawberry. : )

Lettuce and Radish Mayonnaise

For Nut Wafers, I found a recipe for Almond Wafers which says you can substitute other nuts for the almonds, so I guess, go  nuts with your favorite.
