A recipe from an ad for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise published in LIFE magazine in 1958
As I have mentioned before, my mother worked at Norway’s largest producer of mayonnaise most of her working life, so I grew up on the stuff. And as a Norwegian I also have a great love of cranberries, almost all of us do.
But mixing the two, well, I’m not all that sure really. But that’s just me. What ever blows your skirt up visitor, go for it if it tickles you fancy- Ted 😉
A recipe from an ad for Jell-O Chocolate Tapioca published in 1945
When it comes to retro recipes there’s no way around good old Jell-O is there. No other product has given us ads with images of such eddable monstosities. To my defence visitors, this is not the worst of them – Ted 😉
A recipe from an ad for Kellogg’s Corn Flake Crumbs published sometimes in the sixties
How about a chicken-fry without all that bothersome frying? You can do it with Kellogg’s Corn Flake Crumbs. This golden Corn Crisped Chicken is baked. Doesn’t call for shortening. Needs no turning or watching. No pan to wash later, either. And it’s so easy to make that you can relax and be your own guest.
A recipe from an ad for Pet Milk published
in LIFE magazine in 1956
A fruit cake rich in candied fruit, crunchy nuts, with both dark and golden seedless raisins.
Evaporated milk was a popular product before refrigerators were common in homes, but is now a niche product mainly used in baking and other recipes.
Pet, Inc., was an American company that was the first to commercially produce evaporated milk as a shelf-stable consumer product and later became a multi-brand food products conglomerate. Its signature product, PET Evaporated Milk, is now a product of The J.M. Smucker Company.
A snack recipe from an ad for Kraft published in 1967
The recipe says to grill the sandwiches till the cheese has melted, but the cheese on the pictures looks only slightly out of shape to me. Melted cheddar tastes great, lukewarm cheddar on the other hand… – Ted
A dessert recipe from an ad for Libby’s Peaches published in LIFE magazine in 1956
California grown, Libby’s are the peaches you would have picked from the trees yourself. Round and beautiful, tender and juicy . Libby’s are the perfectly luscious peaches – Since it is not imported to Norway, as far as I know, we’ll have to make do with other equally delicious peaches 😉
