Being a fan of all things Vintage, and loving to cook every day – it’s natural that I may one day mix the two hobbies. I have decided to try out a new past-time here on SMIH, with experimenting using Vintage recipes and bringing them up-to-date with my pescatarian diet. I probably will occasionally make some of them into vegan/vegetarian as well, as I like to give myself a challenge.
Until I acquire some of my own cookbooks, I will be using the aid of the internet to source recipes. So far I have had good look, check out the Vintage Recipes I found below!
‘Hey My Mom Used to Make That‘ showcases some 1960s food and beverage recipes, with their original accompanying advertisements!
I absolutely love this Psychedelic Dessert Cookbook, the etsy gives you a preview of an awesome cake that uses assorted sized gum drops to make flowers!
And of course every vintage kitchen isn’t complete without it’s very own aspic collection! Now here is where a vegan recipe would be interesting since most aspics use gelatin, using a vegan substitute like Agar, Carrageen, or Kosher Gelatin. Let’s see what I can get into! Honestly this may be one of the first things I make because it is odd looking, and I would love to force people to eat it’s strangeness!
Couldn’t go wrong with picking up this ‘Hostess’ cookbook from the 60s! I love the description : “Chapters cover “Gay Supper Parties,” “Easy Little Dinners,” “Bright Little Brunches and Lunches,” “Teas and Receptions,” holidays, patio parties, and more.” I want to host a ‘Bright Little Brunch’ !
This ‘Speedy Orange Cake’ from Recipe Vintage – looks like an easy go to cake!
Let me know if you have any 60s/70s recipes that you want to share! I would love to test them out for the blog!
