Mocktail Monday: Strawberry Coconut Cooler

It's Mocktail Monday and today's drink is like springtime in a glass! It's a good thing, too, since it certainly doesn't resemble spring in any other way around here. Rain, rain, go away!

Quick Dishes for the Woman in a Hurry

It's been awhile since I've shared vintage recipes here. My schedule has been a little crazy. Good thing I found my copy of Quick Dishes for the Woman in a Hurry, brought to us by the home economists at the Culinary Arts Institute (not dated, but we can safely assume 1950s), purchased originally for 39 cents at Shop Rite. Here are a few recipes to peruse if you're also in a hurry. The omlet with orange juice is particularly intriguing - let me know if you try that one!

Bon appetit!

Glendora's Got to Go! Put a Stop to Bad Behavior

Glendora is a lovely person, but she can also be a handful. So much drama! We're happy to give her a little TLC, but give her an inch and she'll take a mile. Fortunately we have recipes to soothe your nerves while dealing with guests who take advantage of your hospitality. Fix yourself a lovely libation and let them solve their own problems!
