I’ve been browsing my expansive cookbook collection lately for inspiration. I’ve got dozens of vintage cookbooks packed full of old school jello and casserole recipes.
I’ve been trying to find Christmas recipes and new dinners that are exciting and fresh and different. The only bad thing about those vintage cookbooks is for every good dinner recipe, you’ll find 10 obscure jello molds.
I’ve dog-earred a few favorites so far, but trying to find something good in those yellowed pages is like finding a needle in a haystack. A halfway decent dinner recipe is few and far between.
Will I still buy antique cookbooks? Absolutely. You can find some real hidden gems tucked inside. It’s also fun to discover beloved recipes that seem so disgusting. People were really proud of those recipes, no matter how much mayonnaise was used.
his is a simple recipe I found tucked away in one of those cookbooks. It’s incredibly easy but it packs a nice flavor profile. The best part—there’s no mayonnaise involved.
This is an exceptional recipe for people who don’t have a lot of time to cook dinner. It comes together in a flash and it tastes incredible.
