I got some amazing lamb cake submissions from you guys this year. Looks like everyone had a rocking Easter! But enough talking, let’s get to the lambs. This lamb comes from Cathy N., who writes: Dear Ruth, Thank you so much for your Website with 8 days of lamb cakes. I bought a mold at an antique fair last year and finally used it for the first time a few weeks...

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter this year. It’s always one of my favorite holidays, and not just for the baskets of candy and the cakes shaped like animals. Well…I have to admit that those things are a big part of it. Anyway, because I always hate saying goodbye to things I love, I decided to bring out last year’s lamb cake gallery for everyone to admire! Lamb...

Don’t know what to do with your turkey leftovers?? Well, the Mid-Century Menu is here to bail you out with our cardinal mid-century cooking rule: When in doubt, add gelatin and pour it into a mold! Yeah, that’s right. It’s Jellied Turkey-Vegetable Salad. This recipe was submitted by Sean during our gelatin contest. He submitted three, but I have to admit, this is...

It was an epic contest. It spanned about 4 months and had 10 winners. I really can’t blame you if you couldn’t keep track of all the gelatin-goodness (There was a ton of it!), so I decided to do a re-cap so we can relive the fun, the horror and the gelatin. Best Recipe – Fourth Place: Applesauce 7-Up Salad From Tom’s tasting notes: Tangy and good. Fun with a interesting...

Oh no you don’t. I am not giving up the name of the winner just yet. I just want thank everyone (again!) for making this contest totally awesome. Thanks for sending in recipes, thanks for leaving comments, thanks for reading the posts, thanks for voting and THANK YOU for making this another really fun and disgusting contest. And thanks again to our great sponsors, who...

This is it, people!!! Time for you all to vote for who you think should be the recipient of the much-coveted title of “Worst Mid-Century Gelatin Recipe”! First, I’d like to shoot off a ton of thank-you’s to everyone who sent in a recipe, commented on the posts and shared them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.  The reason these contests are a ridiculous amount...

Wow! Did you guys send me the stuff!! I can’t believe some of the recipes that came in for the gelatin contest. And, unbelievably, I’ve even made some...

Oh, Holy Cow! I am very, very excited about this contest. We got in about 50 entries (!) this time and competition is fierce! The entries have really been...

I think it’s about time for another contest, don’t you??? Yeah. I think it’s about that time. And the theme of this contest??? Gelatin! Jell-O. Knox. The jiggly stuff. The good stuff.  The stuff that glued our childhoods together. The stuff that held bits of fruit and even (ulp!) veggies in suspended animation.  The thing that no holiday table is complete...
