Meatball Magic


I recently ran across a plethora of meatball recipes (circa 1974) and am curious whether or not that would be something of interest to you. If so, I would post a poll, similar to the ones in the past, and let you choose your favorites. Let me know your thoughts by casting your vote. Thanks!

Hi Kirkkitsch, I just happened on your blog. Happy to see I'm not the only one obsessed with forgotten recipes from yesteryear. I've got the same Good Housekeeping and Encyclopedia of Cooking booklets. I've also got stacks of Pillsbury Bakeoff cookbooks, 50s british oven manufacturer cookbooks, California olive assoc. cookbooks.

Right now I've got two loves. Bizarro recipes from the past (frozen salads, vegetable pancakes (wartime recipe))and magazine ads. The magazine recipe interest got spurred by this poppyseed cake my mother used to make. It's from a Wrigley's Doublemint Gum ad (a cake recipe from a gum ad?). Anyway, love your blog. Meatballs are good.

Who doesn't luff meatballs? I used to make mine from scratch from a recipe I got on tv from Cristina Ferrari! No kidding! Anyhow, bring em on!

Tralfaz-
Cool! It sounds like you are as much of a retro foodophile as I am! It's always nice to see that others share in my love of retro recipes! I think food was much more fun when everyone wasn't busy weighing things and counting how many carbs, grams of fat, sugar, etc. things had. I'm so over the whole sugar-free/low-carb media blitz. That's what made me decide to show people how good food CAN be!

And speaking of bizarro recipes, MAN! do I have some doozies coming up in the future.How does a sausage or pork cake strike you?! I about died when I saw the recipes. Must be the 40's era, judging from the book I got them from.

Wow, I can't imagine Wrigley's, of all people, giving recipe advice. Strange!

I'm so glad you are enjoying my blog. I enjoy doing it. Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)

Terri-
That's what I say! Spaghetti isn't spaghetti without meatballs! I usually buy the Rosina brand frozen meatballs. Always a good, meaty taste with none of that weird gristle stuff you find in the cheaper varieties. I'm glad you lika da meatballs, 'cause they are a comin'!

Thanks for commenting! :)
