Book Description

Remember back when you were a kid and your Mom had those favorite, dishes she would make? Remember all the new and interesting dishes that you could sample at every party, cookout and family gathering?

You might have thought those old recipes were gone for good, but I've dug up a cache of old retro family recipe cards that span from the 1960's - 1990's which are bound to include some of those childhood favorites that you've been longing for!

I've taken 35 recipes from these old fashioned recipe cards and translated them into this cookbook! Inside you'll find retro recipes for breads, side dishes, main meals and, of course, desserts (those are my favorite!). And, if you really want to relive those days of your youth, then I've also included some interesting information from that era in each recipe that is sure to spark your memory and even make you chuckle.

I've made sure the recipe directions were easy to follow, all ingredients can be purchased in modern times and I've even added in nutritional information for each recipe.

So, why not let your taste buds take a trip down memory lane?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Practical! June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fun recipe book! I didn't even know you COULD freeze coleslaw until I read this. I'm going to try out the orange-roasted carrots today... and thanks to the snippet of info, I may just listen to some Elvis while I cook. And then have the rum walnut balls for afters. (Carefully counting the calories that are so thoughtfully provided, of course.) I've got another use for this book, though (which I have to admit, is why it caught my eye) - for fiction writers, this is a nice little glimpse into a bygone era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful in Many Ways!! June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book and brought back many memories.My grandmother made applesauce cake every Christmas and I really believe that the recipe in this book may be the one she used. I was never fond of fruit cake, but I loved her applesauce cake.

The author's comments before each recipe bring back many memories from the time of each recipe.It adds such fun to each recipe.

We still make the marshmallow fudge at Christmas time. I can't wait to make the macaroni beef and tomato casserole I could taste it as I read the recipe and we don't eat wonderful casseroles like this anymore.

Buy this book now & enjoy these lovely recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read with fun recipes June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Reading this book brought back so many memories of those times. Each recipe has a little history of what was going on in the US when people were using the recipe. You might be familiar with many of the recipes, but they offer a new version of how you might have made them - these recipes vary by region in the US. Tuna Popover Casserole - we had plenty of tuna casseroles, but this is new to me. And Banana Pumpkin Pie is certainly worth a try! I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the nice selection in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has a few good recipes January 13, 2013
By Nana
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't recall some of these and I am not sure they were from that time period. Since I got married in 1970 and did a lot of cooking I thought there would have been some of the favorites I cooked for my children.

4.0 out of 5 stars ok, but not too many recipes July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like a lot of the recipes-pretty simple comfort foods and desserts. However, there are not very many recipes. It's a pretty good deal for a free app.

3.0 out of 5 stars Retro recipes December 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There were no recipes that caught my interest and I was around at that time period. I think my Mom from a European background just didn't cook that way. I was't allowed McDonalds until High School when I snuck out with friends. I did like the stories before the recipes more so than the recipes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't recognize January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really disppointed in this book. It must have come from another area of the country because I am almost 72 and did not recognize the majority of the recipes, I am sure that people that are familiar with the reipes liked it.
