Let’s pretend it’s summer and have a citrus-y cocktail! This is Pompano! Well, we aren’t Florida-bound or anything, we just wish we were. Also, we left out the ice in the finished drink, because the ice in the shaker melted quite a bit while we were trying to get the drink together. It turns out when you cut an orange in front of a toddler, they immediately demand to have said orange. So you have to cut that orange up for them, and then get a different orange. And then cut most of that one for the toddler, too. “Is it good?” “Yes.” “Does...

So. Have you guys ever made a peanut butter white sauce and then poured it over Fritos? Because I have. These are Peanut Butter Fritos! “Children particularly like the crunchy tastiness of this dish.” We recently received an entire box full of vintage cookbooks from one of Tom’s family members. It was amazing. There were so many books!!! Among the goodies we found perhaps the greatest brand cookbook I’ve ever seen. I thought the Heinz books that put ketchup in everything were amazing, but that has nothing, nothing, on a cookbook...

Spring is almost here! And I immediately started thinking of all the gelatin things I am going to make this spring and summer. While sifting through the archives to remind myself of what we’ve made already, I came across this doozy of a recipe that originally posted during our gelatin contest and I knew I had to reshare it. Enjoy! Want to see something scary? Behold! Jellied cottage cheese and tomato sauce served over coleslaw! It looks…horrible. Like a melting monster face with a green pepper tongue. Appetizing, huh? This recipe...

I am constantly impressed by how mid-century recipes continue to surprise me with the ways they find to use commercially pre-packaged foods. Like pudding in sweet roll dough.

It has been a crazy, crazy few weeks in the Retro Recipe household, and we haven’t been cooking (or blogging!) as much as we want. But after our too-long hiatus from Mid-Century Menu, we’re back with a doozy: corned beef spread. Hooooo boy. « Previous The Original Frosted Ronrico West Indies, 1937 – Vintage Cocktail Friday   Next » Sweet Yeast Dough – Mid-Century Recipe Guest Test Sunday ...
