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 24: Sarah Field Splint’s Ring-Tum-Diddy (1929)

I decided to do this one because I had no idea what a “ring-tum-diddy” was and was sold based on the name alone. The recipe comes from a book called 199 Selected Recipes by Sarah Field Splint through Procter and Gamble. Apparently, it was published for the purposes of promoting Crisco, although this recipe doesContinue reading “Recipe 24: Sarah Field Splint’s Ring-Tum-Diddy (1929)”

Recipe 23: Fruited Chicken from Better Homes and Gardens (1979)*

*Slightly modified based on available supplies What makes this chicken recipe so special are the two ingredients, soy sauce, and pineapple, that add an Oriental touch to the tender chicken pieces. A perfect partner for oven-baked Chicken is a casserole dish full of rice… Better Homes and Gardens Recipe Card 15G 1979 If the pictureContinue reading “Recipe 23: Fruited Chicken from Better Homes and Gardens (1979)*”

Recipe 22: Good Housekeeping’s Fricassee of Parsnips (1909)

I have been sitting on this recipe for a week trying to figure out SOMETHING to write for it. Parsnips have a long history of cultivation and can be found in records of antiquity but they are not as popular today. They are full of nutrients and fiber but taste so good that they wereContinue reading “Recipe 22: Good Housekeeping’s Fricassee of Parsnips (1909)”

Recipe 21: The Silver Palate’s Chicken Dijonnaise (1982)*

*Slightly modified for COVID-19 shortages of certain foods I purchased or otherwise obtained all of the most popular cookbooks from each decade of the 20th century when I started this blog. I learned from Taste of Home’s site that The Silver Palate Cookbook was the most popular book from the 1980’s. I had no ideaContinue reading “Recipe 21: The Silver Palate’s Chicken Dijonnaise (1982)*”

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 19: The Joy of Cooking’s Pecan (or Walnut) Puffs (1923)

I have eaten all of the cookies at home and have vowed to use what I have to make what I need instead of going to the store. I found a copy of the original The Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker online and saw the recipe for Pecan Puffs onContinue reading “Recipe 19: The Joy of Cooking’s Pecan (or Walnut) Puffs (1923)”

Recipe 18: Jules Harder’s Glazed Turnips (White) for Garniture (1885)

I do not plan to leave the house for the next month except to go to work (yay for being an essential worker) and stocked up on things that would last a while in my refrigerator and pantry before my exile. As a result, I am making yet another post on an obscure root vegetable,Continue reading “Recipe 18: Jules Harder’s Glazed Turnips (White) for Garniture (1885)”

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 16: Gold Medal Flour’s Sour Cream Dressing (1910)

I didn’t know if I should keep attempting these recipes with everything happening. I went back and forth between worrying that I was being insensitive about the current state of affairs and thinking that I should keep things as normal as possible. I chose the latter. I decided that I would make recipes that usedContinue reading “Recipe 16: Gold Medal Flour’s Sour Cream Dressing (1910)”
