Madeline’s Lemon Butter Sauce / Madelines Sitronsmørsaus

A vegetable sauce recipe from a slightly cheesy ad for
Sunkist Lemons  published in 1972
Madeline’s Lemon Butter Sauce / Madelines Sitronsmørsaus
Was it the candle lights, the soft music, or the little lemon trick on the vegetables that got to Arnold the night he proposed? Madeline  Nagel doesn’t care. It worked.

In 1972 Sunkist Lemons ran a whole series of ads build over the same slightly cheesy mould like this one. all based on women succeeding at cooking with lemon zest and lemon juice or both impressing boyfriends, in-laws or husband’s bosses. Al with a same rather mortifyingly bad text. The recipes that followed weren’t all that shabby though.

In context: Frederick Cecil Bartholomew (March 28, 1924 – January 23, 1992), known for his acting work as Freddie Bartholomew, was an English-American child actor. One of the most famous child actors of Freddie Bartholomew2all time, he became very popular in 1930s Hollywood films. His most famous starring roles are in Captains Courageous (1937) and Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936).

Bartholomew was born in London, and for the title role of MGM’s David Copperfield (1935), he immigrated to the United States at the age of 10 in 1934, living there the rest of his life. He became an American citizen in 1943 following World War II military service.

Despite his great success and acclaim following David Copperfield, Bartholomew’s childhood film stardom was marred by nearly constant legal battles and payouts which eventually took a huge toll on both his finances and his career. In adulthood, after World War II service, Bartholomew’s film career dwindled rapidly, and he switched from performing to directing and producing in the medium of television.

Angel Desert / Engledessert

A contemporary Christmas desert recipe found on nrk.no/mat/099_engledessert_post

Starting off with a contemporary Christmas dessert recipe. Very nice and so simply to make that it just can’t go wrong. A lot of the other food we make for Christmas are both time consuming and complicated so an easy and delicious desert recipe might come in handy.

But don’t you worry, more traditional deserts, both from Norway and from across the North Sea will turn up on my Christmas Special later on.

This maybe a little heavy, but delicious cake that fits well as dessert after a light main course, and a slice goes down well too with a cup of afternoon coffee.
