A salad recipe found in “Swappin’ Good Recipes Feat. Cottage Cheese” published by American Dairy Association in 1970
Unless you were stinking rich I guess this was a salad you might have served rather seldom. Four servings of salad made from 8 freshly cooked lobster tail served with fresh pineapple was not cheap ingredients back in 1970, neither are they today. But man, it looks absolutely delicious.

A low-cal lunch recipe published by Weight Watchers International in 1974
Internet and colour printers became the death of the recipe card collections and to be honest they are not greatly missed. I have quite a few of these card boxes and ring folders in my collection of old recipes and cookbooks and really, they are far from pracical in use. In no time the ring folders get hard to leaf through and you need to be a lot tidier than me to put the cards back in their right place in the boxes.
But as you can see, I found a solution to that problem. I scanned the lot of them and ran the texts through ocr scanning. A lot more practical solution if you ask me – Ted 😉
A classic Danish recipe from “Spennende Mat” (Exiting Food) published by Skandinavisk Presse in 1980
Nothing beats warm, freshly baked whole grain rolls. Bake a big portion and put some in the freezer. Pick out a few rolls, warm them and enjoy the smell of fresh bakery even on a stressful Monday morning.
