This week we have Vincent Price, a scary cook-along and eBay finally does something right, even if it is just a copy of Pinterest!

Does anyone else remember that Sesame Street character, Vincent Twice? No? Well, as a kid he was one of my favorites! I think he hosted the Mystery Theater.  I used to walk around the house muttering to myself, “I’m your host, Vincent Twice Vincent Twice.”

And what does that have to do with Mid-Century Menu and eBay? Well, in a few weeks I am going to be participating in a Vincent Price Halloween Cookalong hosted by Jenny at Silver Screen Suppers. I am really, really excited about it. Not only is it going to be completely awesome, but Victoria Price (Yes! Vincent’s daughter!) is going to be cooking along with us.

It sort of blows my mind a little.

VPH Cookalong

So, in honor of that and of the upcoming Halloween season (in my opinion, the most wonderful time of the year!) we are doing a quick little round of up Vincent Price cookbooks on eBay:

 A Treasury Of Great Recipes Vincent Price First 1st Edition 1965

Treasury of Great Recipes

Treasury of Great Recipes II

Why I Want This: This book is pretty much the Holy Grail of Vincent Price cooking. I’ve run across a few copies before, but haven’t yet bit the bullet and bought one. Mostly because they are always so darn expensive. But one of these days…it will be mine!

 Vintage 1969 Mary And Vincent Price Come Into The Kitchen Cookbook

Come Into The Kitchen

Why I Want This: There are several covers of this book, but this one with it’s carpet square cover (what the?) is the prettiest, in my opinion!

 Vincent Price International Cooking Course LP Dining at Versailles 1977

Dining at Versailles

Why I Want This: Apparently there is a whole collection of these audio cookbooks narrated by Vincent Price! I didn’t even realize that they existed until this moment, but now I want them…so bad!!!!

eBay List Update!

So, this week when I went to update my Wishlist, I got a pleasant surprise from eBay. I know, unusual, right? Anyway, apparently eBay has launched a Pinterest-like program called “Collections” where you can curate a fun pictoral list of eBay finds AND make comments on your finds! I have pretty much been having a blast with it. And making tons of comments along the way!
My eBay Collections: Vintage Cooking Galore!

As of writing this I have four collections, but I am sure that I will have more very soon. So come on over and check it out. And let me know if you are using this feature of eBay. Apparently you can “follow” other people’s collections, but I haven’t found any yet to follow!

Oh, and if you want to check out some more awesome eBay kitsch picks, check out the post on my other blog, No Pattern Required!
