1970s Kids Cookbooks
These are some photos from two cookbooks I had when I was little and LOVED. The first three images are from Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls, and the last one is from The Little Witch’s Magic Cookbook. There are more images from these and others on my Flickr page.
I looooooved the photo of this cake, and I think I made it once. The best part was that the eyes were sugar cubes set inside eggshells, that you SET ON FIRE! Ghost Cake with Flaming Eyes! Scary!
I wanted to LIVE in this ski chalet.
My favorite recipe in the entire book. The authors were smart; they put the desserts at the front of the book.
Maybe this is where I got my love of peanut-butter-and-pickle sandwiches…
Update: Here’s an additional recipe and its accompanying photo, posted for reader Jennifer below. Click for bigger versions. Enjoy!
Update: And another photo for reader Tricia: Bologna cups!
