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.

    It’s combination of the lurid colors of the photo and the description but I stuck my tongue out and shuddered the instant I saw this. And I generally like salmon.

    I’d try this recipe…as soon as I can wipe the inappropriate name from my memory.

    The recipe actually doesn’t sound as bad as the picture looks or the name implies . . . if you are a cream-of-celery-soup kind of person, that is.

    This recipe actually sounds tasty. Its a bit like a homemade Tuna Helper but with salmon in place of tuna, and biscuit in place of noodles. I will give this one a try.
