The Smirnoff Smokey Mary (1977)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 16/09/2021 - 12:59am in

I am living for the Smirnoff Vodka magazine ads from the 1970s. Today’s drink is The Smokey Mary. We never dreamed when we first launched the Smirnoff Bloody Mary it would become a global classic. That doesn’t mean, however, that most folks know how to make a really good one, or even care to bother.Continue reading The Smirnoff Smokey Mary (1977) →

Pieathalon 8: Mahogany Pie (1978)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 09/09/2021 - 10:48pm in

Welcome to the 8th Annual Pieathalon! You all know the deal–the Pieathletes send me pre-1990 pie recipes and I randomly assign them to another Pieathlete. We make ’em! Then share ’em! My assignment is courtesy of Dr. Bobb of Dr. Bobb’s Kitschen. He submitted two different recipes and this is the one I chose, fromContinue reading Pieathalon 8: Mahogany Pie (1978) →

Wiener Wednesday: Mexican Franks & Eggs (1965) and Montezuma Bloody Maria (1974)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 02/09/2021 - 4:34am in

We’ve come to the end of the Summer of Franks! And let me tell you, it couldn’t come soon enough. Bring on fall! And bring on dishes that don’t include cylindrical-shaped foods! For the very last Wiener Wednesday, I turned to Click Americana and One-Dish Frankfurter Meals. I was feeling a little spicy, so IContinue reading Wiener Wednesday: Mexican Franks & Eggs (1965) and Montezuma Bloody Maria (1974) →

Wiener Wednesday: The Charlie Burch (1975)

America’s Sweetheart, Betty White has been known to say that the secret to long life is vodka and hot dogs. If that is true, then I will live to be over a hundred. With Betty in mind, this week’s Wiener Wednesday features weenies and vodka: Yes, I am fully aware that the recipe only featuresContinue reading Wiener Wednesday: The Charlie Burch (1975) →

Yet another Wiener Wednesday dish that I chose because of the name. The Babysitter’s Favorite. This is from Crock-Pot Cooking by Marilyn Neill. As someone who was only a babysitter for a single summer because I disliked it so much, I can’t really speak on what would make this a babysitter favorite; so instead IContinue reading Wiener Wednesday: The Babysitter’s Favorite (1975) →

It’s another Wiener Wednesday and another Dinner is Served 1972 card!!! I apologize that this dish looks super-similar to Pine Valley Red Hots from seven weeks ago (OMG I cannot believe that I have been doing these for nearly 2 months). Compare the Deviled Hot Dogs above to the Pine Valley Red Hots: Strikingly similar.Continue reading Wiener Wednesday: 207. Deviled Hot Dogs →

142. Meat Loaf Mexicali

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 27/05/2021 - 2:40am in

This is the runner-up in the you-decide-what-ground-beef-dish-I-should-cook poll. I actually made it the day after Baked Stuffed Cheese-Burger (can’t waste that ground beef!), but have not gotten around to posting it until today. You see, I’ve had a lot going on. Actually millions of things going on; I live in Maryland, which is ground zeroContinue reading 142. Meat Loaf Mexicali →

129. Baked Cheese-Burger

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 21/05/2021 - 2:13am in

Last week you voted and the winner is 129. Baked Cheese-Burger! Looks pretty simple. And I didn’t have to buy a damn thing. I appreciate that the 1973 dinners are pared down considerably from the original DiS1972 set–so many of the cards are multi-hour affairs, but a good number of the 1973 dinners only takeContinue reading 129.

You Pick! (Ground beef edition)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 13/05/2021 - 12:08am in

This past weekend I decided to do an inventory of my freezers (yes, that is plural. I have a meat-dedicated freezer in my living room); turns out that I have a copious amount of ground beef to use up. So I said to Me, “Me, this is a great opportunity to give a new groundContinue reading You Pick! (Ground beef edition) →

Burda International Cuisine Festive Menus: Stuffed Eggs (1978)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 08/05/2021 - 11:55pm in

FUN FACT! May is National Egg Month!!! Honestly, it seems like Egg Month should be April because; Easter. But perhaps the Egg Council of America people missed their chance to claim it. Speaking of Easter, I had leftover dyed eggs from my Easter Braid that I needed to kill, which is why I decided toContinue reading Burda International Cuisine Festive Menus: Stuffed Eggs (1978) →
