You know that old jingle, the one that goes: “I wish I was an Oscar Mayer Wiener, that is what I’d truly like to be, ’cause if I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener, everyone would be in love with me!” This dish is what happens after you’ve been dating the beloved Oscar Mayer Wiener for a while, and start discovering some strange habits — like swimming in French dressing with lima beans. « Previous Gelatin Glazed Tea Cakes – A Mid-Century Gelatin Re-Run   Next » Heath...

I just had to get this recipe out of the archives last week to fill a reader’s request, so I thought I would post it again so you could all see the glory of gelatin mixed with cake. This recipe was originally posted in November of 2012 after our Gelatin Contest that consumed most of our summer and life.

It’s hard to put into words how awesome this book is, probably because my idea of “awesome” is probably a lot different than most people’s. Let’s just say there are a lot of unusual combinations...

We are dipping into the archives this week and pulling out one of the most hilarious recipes that Tom and I have ever made. This post originally ran in May of 2012, and since then this sub with canned spaghetti poured on it has been the butt of many jokes around our house, and probably will continue to be a punch line in the future. How can it not be? It has all the...
