These cookies are so cute, fast and fun, and they would be a great end-of-summer treat for kids before they had to head back to school! This recipe originally ran in July 2012 and was part of our Glistening and Jiggly recipe contest. I dug this recipe out of the archives recently for a friend, so I thought it would be a good time to resurrect it for you guys as well! Guess what? It’s time for cookies! Fun, bright cookies made with a package of Jell-O. Yep, that’s right. Jell-O. It turns out that not all gelatin dishes are meant to...

Sure, it’s not July anymore. And pie should probably be a “sometimes food.” But this one just looks so darn irresistible… « Previous Sir Charles Punch, 1941 – Vintage Cocktail Friday   Next » Colorful Gelatin Cookies – A Vintage Recipe Re-Run ...

This week we are making some punch! We obviously cut down on the measurements of this one, because who is going to drink all that? And our ice melted. But this smelled really good. It would be great at a party! “Yum” The Verdict: Fantastic From The Tasting Notes - It’s not really a surprise that brandy goes well with port, but the curacao and the sliced fruit really enhances the flavor of the “punch”.  It was syrupy and sweet and very much a punch, and I’m not sure it was the best use of late bottled vintage port....

Our plum tree decided to go crazy on us this year. So, since I have a couple of buckets of plums laying around, I decided to make some coffee cake. Dutch Plum Cake, to be exact!   Normally our plum tree gives us about a handful of plums. Last year we were excited because we got ten plums out of the little guy. Ten. And that caused excitement. This year we were totally thrown for a loop when we went out one day in early spring and saw scads of tiny plums up and down the tree. We figured that most of them would fall off or get eaten...

This is what happens when I let Buzz help pick the recipe. “Oooh, make that one!” “What, seriously? It’s just Grape-Nuts on broccoli.” “YES! That one!” So we’re having Broccoli with Crunchy Topping. « Previous Port Wine Flip, 1941 – Vintage Cocktail Friday   Next » Dutch Plum Cake, 1959 – A Mid-Century Recipe Test ...

Who wants a cocktail? It has a whole, raw egg in it! This is Port Wine Flip! So, in doing some research to find out what the heck a “flip” is, I found out that there actually used to be special flip glasses that a flip would be served in. It was kind of a short tumbler with a flared mouth. But since we didn’t have an official flip glass, we had to make do with William Henry Harrison.  Which is just fine with us. Another thing I found out is that this is a dessert drink, which is good because as I was mixing this I kept thinking...

I hope you guys are loving Vintage Pie July! I have been looking over things in the archives and chuckling, so I thought I would re-post this crazy pie so you all could have a good laugh with me. This recipe originally ran in October of 2012, and I should have really saved it for Halloween that year. It was CREEPY. But, as always, Tom was a good sport about it and actually ate quite a bit of this pie. Enjoy! Well, I threatened to show you guys the rest of the tested recipes from the gelatin contest, and if you know me at all you know that...

So this is the third fruit with meringue pie I’m making this month. It’s easily the strangest, though. Ever had a pie made from melon? « Previous Bonnie Butterscotch Cake, 1952 – The Vintage Cake Corner   Next » Barbecue Gelatin Cheese Cracker Pie – A Vintage Pie July Recipe Re-Run ...
