The request was for Snickerdoodles. I had to fulfill that request, as the Ford mechanic had fixed my car’s key fob for free. (Note to everyone-make sure the newly installed battery is THE RIGHT SIDE UP! My face is still red.)Continue reading “Snickerdoodles”
Yesterday I published The No Egg Chocolate Cake from the 1940’s, in response to Dollar Tree eliminating eggs from their store offerings. The 1960’s Coca-Cola Cake swings in a completely different direction from the 1940’s rationing of eggs, flour and sugar. The 1960’s was an era of extreme ingredients in comparison to twenty years prior. And this Coca-Cola Cake is a good example of that. This recipe will have you licking your fork AND plate, it’s that good!Continue reading “Coca-Cola Cake”
Dollar Tree has announced it will stop selling eggs because they are losing money offering them at a flat price. Eggs are now too expensive to sell in their stores.
Dollar Tree offers most of its products at a flat rate of $1.25, with a selection of items for $3 and $5. It appears that eggs aren’t fitting Dollar General’s price-conscious outlook right now.
The No Egg Chocolate Cake from the 1940’s is a recipe that reflects high prices of all food during World War II. There was little sugar and flour during that time, so this recipe would be made only for special occasions.Continue reading “The No Egg Chocolate Cake”
According to the latest news report, inflation is cooling down. I guess no one was buying eggs the day they wrote the report… Herbed Potato Soup doesn’t contain eggs, and is downright good stuff, and cheap dinner fare!
I happened to be in the grocery store when they were practically giving away 5# bags of potatoes for 99¢ a bag. All of the ingredients add up to less than 50¢ per serving, and that’s with fresh herbs, whole milk, and butter! The bonus of it all is that it also tastes good!
Do Economists Not Buy Groceries?
Depending on your newsfeed, there are conflicting reports that a recession is looming or there is a lessening chance of a recession. I know one thing for sure. The prices of groceries are still inflated.
Let’s go back to the 1960’s-‘70’s and retrieve a Taco Bake recipe that extends a pound of hamburger into 8 large servings!
Who doesn’t love alliteration? Well this recipe has that and it tastes great! Did I mention Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Bake is also thrifty? This recipe is a mashup of several different 1970’s recipes.
I added up the cost of the ingredients. With eight large servings, this family friendly and good enough for company recipe comes to less than $1 a serving AND everyone will eat it!
Hooo Doggy! Our cucumber plants are producing!
I have three different recipes that will appeal to many different tastes. While going through my collection of vintage cookbooks, I discovered there aren’t that many cucumber recipes, but many recipes for cookies and cake. Note to you all, cucumbers do not taste like cake…
Dates Were the Avocados of the 1920’s
I’m one of these people who read cookbooks for fun. When reading my 1927 copy of the Sioux City/Omaha Fontenelle Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star Cookbook, I quickly came to a few conclusions.
Holy cats! I’m sure you’ve noticed inflation is getting up there. I hope you aren’t in the market for a rental car, a new vehicle, gas or food.
You may not need anything to do with transportation, but you do have to eat. So here are some inflation relief recipes to help you out!
Everyone has a few apples in their refrigerator. This Apple Bread recipe is a lower sugar dessert that can use up those apples in the back of your refrigerator that are well past their prime. This 1950’s recipe is from a farm magazine from many years ago. It presents well, and is sure to be a great after school snack or a Christmas gift to replace that fruit cake no one cares to eat!
