I love everything retro, vintage, mid-century, kitsch and all things atomic! A 21st century housewife just trying to fit in...to 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.

      I know! I always wondered what to do with those serving dishes. Now I know!

    Nothing spells Easter like hard-boiled eggs and bacon! (:

      We always had hard-boiled eggs (the Easter eggs, of course) mashed up and drizzled with hot bacon grease.
