I love everything retro, vintage, mid-century, kitsch and all things atomic! A 21st century housewife just trying to fit the 50's. I have a passion for vintage recipes and an enormous vintage cookbook collection that I keep testing, even though by now I should know better.

    Hey Retroruth! Just stumbled across your blog from another website and had to say it cracked me up! (And not just because we have the same name, either.) I grew up in the era of these recipes and remember my mom trying to get my brother and me to eat some of them. Some succeded and I have fond memories of them. Others, well, not so much, but our dog at the time really liked them! I look forward to reading more of your adventues with them, and Tom’s taste testing.

    I’d like to meet these 9 out of 10 doctors who recommend Crisco fried foods.
