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)”

Recipe 13: The Culinary Arts Institute’s Strawberry Bavarian Cream (1956)

For Valentine’s Day I wanted to make something special. Fortunately, I have my handy collection of booklets from the Culinary Arts Institute. There is specifically a book for holiday cooking: Within it are recipes for the most common holidays, including Valentine’s Day! 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)”

Recipe 10: Fritos Swiss Dip (1956)

This is a great moment in Recipe Replay history… I MAY HAVE FOUND A RECIPE THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS DONE!!!!!! You wouldn’t believe how many times I stumble upon what I think is a unique recipe only to find that 10 other people have done it and done it better. I assumed that wouldContinue reading “Recipe 10: Fritos Swiss Dip (1956)”

Recipe 9: Good Housekeeping’s Celeriac au Gratin (1908)

Yay! Another obscure root vegetable! In my research I have stumbled upon several foods that were completely unknown to me. Celeriac is one of them. I decided that the next recipe I would do would be this one after I actually found celeriac at our local Ingles. Imagine that!

Recipe 8: Oprah’s Angel Hair Pasta with Lemon and Garlic (1994)

OMG this recipe and the MEMORIES! This recipe comes from In the Kitchen with Rosie: Oprah’s Favorite Recipes by Rosie Daley. The book was published in 1994. I was about 12 or 13. My mom had this book so that she could lose weight but I wouldn’t go near it. I thought all of theContinue reading “Recipe 8: Oprah’s Angel Hair Pasta with Lemon and Garlic (1994)”

Recipe 6: Culinary Arts Institute’s Sunshine Slaw (1956)

I will admit it…I am a sucker for resolutions. I really am that person that gets excited every January 1 and decides that “this year will be different” and “I will get so much done” and has a huge list of “achievable, measurable goals” to “make sure that I do things right” this year. I’mContinue reading “Recipe 6: Culinary Arts Institute’s Sunshine Slaw (1956)”

Recipe 5: Culinary Arts Institute’s Chicken a la King (1939)

It is the holidays and I grew up watching “A Christmas Story” (1983) like most people my age. My favorite part is when the Bumpus hounds run into the house and eat all of the turkey meant for Christmas dinner. The narrator exclaims: “The heavenly aroma still hung in the house. But it was gone,Continue reading “Recipe 5: Culinary Arts Institute’s Chicken a la King (1939)”
