August 17, 2010Vintage Recipes From Mom’s Recipe Archive
By Sablemable aka Jan
My mother, may she be of blessed memory, would have rather had a new cookbook than a new dress! She was always reading cookbooks, clipping recipes from magazines and the newspaper to find new and interesting ideas for meals. Mom was also a wonderful cook and could make anything. We never left the dinner table hungry!
Enter Pillsbury. For sixty plus years, Pillsbury has had their annual Bake-Offs and Mom collected their recipe books during the Fifties. Somewhere along the way, Pillsbury must have listed an ad in said recipe books for their international recipes because I have a perfect set of recipes in a not-so-perfect envelope that was mailed to my mother. Since our trusty leader of the MCM meals from Hades, Ruth, features the horrors of MCM cooking, I thought I’d take this opportunity to give you readers something you can cook and enjoy!
First off is pizza. Pillsbury even helps with the pronunciation (PEET-tsah) so that you can impress your friends and family by sounding worldly!
Then there’s dessert from Austria, Austrian Nut-Butter Cookies or in German, Zauner Krapfen (pronounced TSOW-nehr KRAHP-f’n; you’ll have to supply the German accent yourselves!).
Right now it’s too hot and humid to heat up the stove, but, winter is just around the corner and I can’t wait to throw these into the oven!
Yummy! Sehr gut! Deliciosa!
