A traditional Norwegian kake recipe found in “Nye Mesterkokken” (The New Master Chef) published by Skandinavisk Presse AS in 1974
This is a delicious dessert cake from the time when farmers made their own sour cream. There is no need for the apples in the cake, but they add a fresh fruity flavor you may have to replace by serving jams with the cake if left out.
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 lunch recipe from”McCall’s Great American Recipe Card Collection” published in 1973
A mix of chicken wings and chicken liver was standard Saturday evening snacks in my childhood home. Served as simple as possible. Right out of the frying pan with white bread, butter and mayonnaise – I kind of miss it – Ted 😉
