Orange Mallow Yam Yums from The Forgetful Wife
Face in the Cereal From Kitchen Retro
Vintage Appetizers from Antique Alter Ego
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!
The Retro Housewife has amassed a fine collection of 1960s specific recipes, including : Mistletoe Dip, Charlotte Russe, and Big Top Circus Cake.
‘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!
Chicken Pie Mold Ad
Or maybe I can splurge and buy these Chicken/Turkey Molds, which go along with this ad Kitchen Retro found that shows how they were used back in the day! Make Seitan turkeys for thanksgiving?!
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!
‘Peggy’s Antiquated Recipes‘ gives a run-down of a collection of 1960s Cookbooks and includes a couple recipes including : Cheesy Pups, Ramequins, and Pink Lady Pie.
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!
