Recipe 25: Riceland Rice’s Hot Apple Deep Dish Dessert (1969?)

So, my favorite recipes are the ones that don’t come out of established, well-known cookbooks but instead come from publications or promotional materials distributed by companies to advertise their products. As I do this blog, I realize that these kinds of things are rare finds and I feel sort of like I stumbled upon somethingContinue reading “Recipe 25: Riceland Rice’s Hot Apple Deep Dish Dessert (1969?)”

Recipe 20: Shortcut Cooking’s Cottage Mashed Potatoes (1969)

We have turned our shelter-in-place requirement into a game to see how long we can go without going to the actual grocery store. We are allowed to purchase things sold at my job at a chain retail pharmacy (because I have to go to work anyway, so I’m not making a special trip). Otherwise, weContinue reading “Recipe 20: Shortcut Cooking’s Cottage Mashed Potatoes (1969)”

Recipe 17: Good Housekeeping’s Rumtopf (1978)

I chose this recipe because it used up some ingredients from the Ginger Ale Salad made two weeks ago (yay) AND had a funny name (YAY)! Rumtopf is a German and Danish liquor dessert typically consumed around Christmas. It involves mixing the fruit with sugar and very high alcohol content rum and letting it sitContinue reading “Recipe 17: Good Housekeeping’s Rumtopf (1978)”

Recipe 14: Betty Crocker’s Beef Stroganoff (1974)

I just finished reading Crime and Punishment and wanted to make something Russian. I previously vowed to never make any international recipes because I do not know enough about the cultures to know what a vintage recipe would be in different nations. I made an exception here because I’m the boss and I can. TheContinue reading “Recipe 14: Betty Crocker’s Beef Stroganoff (1974)”

I excitedly opened to the St. Valentine’s Day section and the first recipeContinue reading “Recipe 13: The Culinary Arts Institute’s Strawberry Bavarian Cream (1956)”

Recipe 12: Unilever/Simplot’s Chicken Tonight (1990)

I feel like Chicken Tonight! Like Chicken Tonight! Chicken Tonight! Chicken Tonight was a brand of sauces made by Unilever beginning in 1990 in the United States. It came in flavors like Creamy Chicken and Mushroom, Chicken Cacciatore, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Country French Chicken. The ads were probably the most memorable part ofContinue reading “Recipe 12: Unilever/Simplot’s Chicken Tonight (1990)”

Recipe 11: Betty Crocker’s Galaxy Cookies (1974)

I saw this recipe when I was looking through my mom’s Betty Crocker’s Cookbook from 1974 when I was first starting this project in November. I can only find a few other versions of this recipe online (here and here and here, although I know there are probably a few more that I missed), soContinue reading “Recipe 11: Betty Crocker’s Galaxy Cookies (1974)”
