Oh boy, oh boy! My favorite part of Thanksgiving is almost here! The PIE! And what better pie to serve at Thanksgiving than old school, classic mid-century pies. Wow. This pie will really…keep you regular. Anyway, all these great pie recipes came from the November 1953 issue of Woman’s Home Companion. And I want to try every single one of them, especially this...

So, if you haven’t seen it by now, The Mid-Century Menu is having another contest! This time, we are doing a fun theme, “Let’s Sing A Tune to Tuna”, which promises to be both wonderful and eerily-awful based on the submissions I have gotten thus far. Tom and I totally have our work cut out for us on this one.  We have gotten some great ones, and some not so great...

After I finished the fun stuff for our two person Super Bowl Party (Artichoke dip, taco dip and buffalo chicken meatballs), I broke out the mid-century snacks because…well…I had too. I had the greatest snack book ever! Check out this beauty.  It’s the Appetizer...

I hope I am not coming on too strong when I say there is nothing like a vintage Pillsbury Bake-Off Cookbook. Nothing. They are pretty much great from...

What can I say?  Sometimes the Mid-Century Menu is just good, clean fun. Well, most of the time it’s not good or clean (teats!). But heck, it’s always...
