Butterscotch Heaven

So, school has started back, with even more chaos and exhaustion than usual. And... well... I'm exhausted. Is it too early to be admitting that? Surely it's too early for that to be starting... Whether or not I should be this tired yet, it's not going to change the fact that I've felt like a… Continue reading Butterscotch Heaven

Devil’s Food Pudding – 1976

So, I'd always heard that you could do bread in a slow cooker, but I'd never really tried it before. And, to be honest, the idea of slow cooker bread still wasn't calling to me. However, I have a sweet tooth, and the idea of a crockpot desert is something I could definitely get behind.… Continue reading Devil’s Food Pudding – 1976

Sour Creamed Pot Roast – 1976

[And, this week is another reposting, back from the original Time Capsule Cooking blog. This week has been.... busy. Professional development courses can be exhausting.] I have a confession to make: Despite cooking for years, and working, before now I’ve never actually used a slow cooker. Well, I’ve used one. Mostly just plugging the thing… Continue reading Sour Creamed Pot Roast – 1976

Vintage Cookbook | Cooking with Condensed Soups – 1952

So, it should be no secret to anyone that thrifting is a hit-or-miss activity. Sometimes you come away with absolutely nothing... a lot of times you come away with nothing... but sometimes you find pure gold. This find was very shiny indeed. Well, not literally. It was actually pretty dusty. But that's beside the point.… Continue reading Vintage Cookbook | Cooking with Condensed Soups – 1952

Spicy Shortcake with Applesauce – 1952

Wow, the title of this one really sounds innocent, considering the ingredients involved. Well, one ingredient at least. You see, this is one of the variations to the famous Campbell's Tomato Soup Cake. Yes, you heard me right. Now, evidently the tomato soup cake was first invented in the 1920s, but this cookbook, according to… Continue reading Spicy Shortcake with Applesauce – 1952

Vintage Cookbook | Easy Oven Meals from Betty Crocker – 1984

I must admit, I've noted that the closer a cookbook is to the current era, the more normal it seems. It makes sense. Tastes change gradually after all. And, comfort food and some questionable TikTok recipes aside, the more current the recipe the higher the chance its going to fall in line with what people… Continue reading Vintage Cookbook | Easy Oven Meals from Betty Crocker – 1984

Chocolate-banana Shortcake – 1984

Last week, over on Instagram, I asked everyone what they would like me to try next.... unfortunately I couldn't get everything written out on the poll correctly so the two choices were tomatoed fish or simply chocolate banana. Not very descriptive, that last one, is it? I'll do better next time around. Despite the uncertainty… Continue reading Chocolate-banana Shortcake – 1984

Vintage Cookbook | Southern Living Casserole Cookbook – 1971

Back before Southern Living started doing their annual recipe books they had another series that they published in the early 1970s. Part of the Southern Living Cookbook Library, as the series was called, each book was simply titled "The (insert-type-of-food-here) Cookbook".  This particular book's mission is evidently to tell us about the "fine art of… Continue reading Vintage Cookbook | Southern Living Casserole Cookbook – 1971
