I’m still here! And so are these great vintage cookbooks!!!

I’ve been unplugged for a while…working full time…raising teenagers while refraining from killing said teenagers….yadda yadda yadda.  But I’m still here! And so are some fabulous cookbooks I picked up that I thought I’d share with you.

So let’s dive in!!!!

First up is a 1969 psychedelic gem that comes to us from Cool Whip, The Well-Dressed Dessert. Ahhh, Cool Whip….you were just as great in 1969 as you are today.

Doesn’t this Contents page just scream Woodstock?!!  I feel like I need a cold bottle of Coke and a choir of hippies singing “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony….”?   You’ll be singing this all day now…20160416_120728_resized (3)

Did you know you could make Fancy Frosting from Cool Whip????  Mmmmmm…..20160416_121120_resized (2)

Next up, we’ve got Better Homes and Gardens 1967 SALAD BOOK.   I just know this cookbook was used in a kitchen highlighted with those fabulous orange, green, and yellow Tupperware canisters!  I….just…know…it!!!20160416_121434_resized

I swear I saw this spread on an episode of the Brady Bunch.  You know this is something that was prepped by Alice in that fab 70’s kitchen that we all wanted!20160416_121904_resized

…..and this Pink Pear looks Heavenly.   It reminds me of my grandmother which makes it all the more wonderful!!  Don’t you just want to pinch its cheeks!  20160416_121741_resized

And a true 60s/70s cookbook would not be complete without some sort of gelatinous molded dish of wonderfulness.  Snowy Chicken Confetti Salad?  I really have no words….. 20160416_122313_resized

Last on my cookbook share today is Dinner on a Toothpick from 1971.  The images and tips in this little guy just crack me up!20160416_122351_resized

Oh sure….remove all the chairs so everyone has to stand uncomfortably.  With “helpful” tips like this, no wonder the cocktail party doesn’t exist anymore.   I don’t know about you guys, but if I don’t have a seat, I just want to go home!  This picture just looks mean, doesn’t it!20160416_122440_resized

If this chip/dip bowl existed, it would SO be in my hutch right now.  Is she perfect or what!!!!20160416_122638_resized

I’m not entirely sure this is how I would sell my vegetable section. Seems appropriate, however.  This looks like my son when he mysteriously gets a headache when the green beans are served!20160416_122801_resized

I hope you are enjoying the start of your spring  and are ready for all the County Fair Antique Shows to begin!

Thanks for stopping by!
