Welcome to the Mid-Century Menu where every week¬†blah blah blah vintage cookbooks, blah blah blah interesting recipes, blah blah blah serve it to my husband for supper. You get the idea. ūüôā The recipe, or should I say set of recipes, that Tom and I chose this week comes from Good Food On A Budget, published by the good people at Better Homes and Gardens in 1971.¬†...

Hello!¬† Welcome to the Mid-Century Menu, the feature on my blog in which I pick an unusual, interesting or strange recipe from my vintage cookbook collection, cook it, and then serve it to my husband for dinner!¬† Poor Tom, the human guinea pig.¬† This week’s pick for dinner comes from the cookbookwith the best cover so far, the Carnation Easy-Does-It Cookbook.¬†...

Welcome, all! It is time for another Mid-Century Menu, the feature on my blog where I find the most unusual, strange, experimental or questionable recipe from my vintage cookbook collection, cook it up and serve it for dinner. Sometimes the results are pretty tasty, but most of the time they are pretty bad. If you missed it, last week was a first in Mid-Century Menu...

More exciting news!¬† The Mid-Century Menu featuring the None-Such Ham Loaf is¬†in the Accent section of the Midland Daily News today.

Oh yeah, it’s that time again!¬† Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, where I take a recipe from my collection of vintage cookbooks, cook it, and force my husband to eat it for dinner.¬† The catch is, we don’t pick a recipe because it looks good.¬† We pick it because it looks terrible. This week’s recipe comes from the Better Homes and...

Happy Wednesday, everyone!¬† Time for the Mid-Century Menu, where normally I make something horrible from one of my vintage cookbooks and force my husband to eat it.¬† However, this week I decided to¬†post a cute recipe just sent to me by Sablemable,¬†which I just made for my open house.¬† Egg “penguins”. Here is a picture of the¬†penguins from a¬†Better...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, where I find the strangest mid-century recipe I can and I cook it up and serve it to my husband, who will eat pretty much anything.¬† And most of the time it is even edible. This week’s recipe comes from Warm Weather Meals for 2 or 4 or 6 published by the Pet Milk Company¬†in 1938. 1938 isn’t truly mid-century,...

Hello everyone!¬† Welcome to this week’s mid-century menu.¬† This week I tried a recipe from one of my new cookbooks that I recently bought at the Midland Antiques Festival.¬† I was lucky enough to find a whole pile of these little cookbooks for pretty cheap at one booth, and you can be sure that I snapped up everything I could! The victim this week (besides...
