An appatizer/lunch recipe found in “Cappelens Kokebok” published in 1995
Baking is a great way to cook potatoes. They can be eaten as regular boiled potatoes, but can also be served as an appetizer or main course together with suitable accessories. You should choose quite large potatoes, but it is also possible to bake smaller ones. Mealy varieties are best suited. Note that it is not a good idea to wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil. They get a much better taste and texture without.
The little guy there is Potato Pete and he was part of a campaign introduced during WWII to encourage the British population to eat home-grown vegetables.
A brownie recipe found in “Hershey’s Make It Chocolate!” published by Hershey in 1987
Mint is I guess something one either love or hate. I have friends who can’t stand it, but for my part I love it in any form. Nothing beat a good book and a steaming cup of mint tea in the evening particulary when combined with a few thin After Eight mint wafers. A couple of these brownies would do nicely too – Ted

I love the title of this recipe, “Easy Pizza Bread”. It makes it sound like we’ve baked this kind of bread since times immemorial and here, finally, is a simple and easy to make it. On the other hand I’ve never heard of pizza bread before now

Ricotta (pronounced [riˈkɔtta] in Italian) is an Italian whey cheese made from sheep, cow, goat, or Italian water buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese.

A recipe for bread found in “The Farmers Family Baking Book” a free E-book published by the Devondale Dairy
Put your overripe bananas to good use and make a loaf of banana bread. You’ll love this bread’s moist texture and simple flavor. Banana bread should form a crack down the center as it bakes–a sign the baking soda is doing its job. Serve toasted with a smear of cream cheese, greek yogurt, or peanut butter and top with mixed nuts. Your kids will love it.

What ever happened to rusks? When I was a kid we ate rusks quite often, but now I can’t remember the last time I set my teeth into one. Have they simply gone out of fashion. Can’t even remember having seen some in the stores in donkey’s years- Ted

A WWI baking recpe found in “War Time Recipes” published by Proctor & Gamble Co in 1918
When the United States entered World War I in 1917 food was desperately needed to supply the European civilian and military allies. Herbert Hoover was appointed as head of the U. S. Food Administration and launched a campaign to conserve food. Americans were urged to voluntarily stretch the food supply by cutting waste, substituting plentiful for scarce ingredients and participating in the food-conservation program popularly known as “Hooverizing,” which included wheatless Mondays and Wednesdays, meatless Tuesdays, and porkless Thursdays and Saturdays.
The Food Administration sponsored a program to educate the people about nutrition and food preservation to help persuade them that eating less would not be harmful. Signs and posters proclaimed, “Food Will Win the War” and pitched what became known as the “Doctrine of the Clean Plate.” The National War Garden Commission encouraged Americans to “put the slacker land to use” by growing war gardens and to preserve by canning and drying all the food they could not use while fresh.
A bread recipe found in “Borden’s Eagel Brand Book of Recipes” published by Borden’s Condenced Milk Co in the 1930s
The people at Borden’s Condensed Milk Co obviously think we are all superbly accomplished bakers as they didn’t bother to mention neither oven temperature nor baking time in the recipe. I can’t say I feel all that sure about my accomplisment in the field of baking so I hope I’ll find help in similar recipes elsewhere on the net.
