Finally found a brain-shaped mold after seeing them online for years.
It is sturdy! And perfect for shrimp mousse, in all its glistening, shrimp-filled glory. Perfect for a Halloween party. We forgot to bring along a serving plate, and think this would looked better on a glass platter, or have been extra funny on stainless steel: more medical!
Note: to release mousse from brain, press the front and back of the mold upside down and it pops right out.
We found a photo online of this September 1986 Seventeen page and had to snicker: mayonnaisey salad and deviled eggs on the beach! But then we remembered we had the recipe page (kept mostly for the roast beef, bacon and scallion cream cheese sandwich loaf and cute watermelon shaped cookies:
Glad to reunite these. Enjoy!
Here’s blast from the past. If you pardon its haggard appearance, this 1980s popcorn recipe page has been shown much love (grease stains to boot!). We took a crack at the “fruity” version and still remember how sticky, but fun, it was.
We are quite astonished that our wee recipe blog has attracted so many 1980s Seventeen Magazine recipe searchers.
We love that our most popular post, Vintage Recipe Searchers, continues generating public requests and a community of recipe sharers.
So we are keen to share another fun discovery we made while idly googling for lost recipes: Now You’re Cooking first appeared in the February 1978 issue! We have yet to find the page (that was more than a few years before we started reading).
If you have a copy, please share a scan with us!
Does anyone have a Seventeen recipe page for seafood chowder? It had a cranberry cake to go with it?
