“What a great site and thread! I’ve been searching all over for a lasagna recipe that was in Seventeen magazine sometime in the 80s. I’m almost positive it was a Feb/Valentine’s Day issue, but can’t swear on it either. Think it used both beef and sausage in the recipe, but not completely sure. If anyone has ideas, would be so grateful!”

Hope this is the one! Not sure of the date on this one. But given the LPs tucked under our gal’s arm, we can safely guess 1984! lol

Let us know if you try it or if you’ve found another 1980s Seventeen recipe page!

Mardi Gras, 1980s style

23 Jan

Just in time for Fat Tuesday, Maja writes:

“Hello 🙂 I am looking for 80s Seventeen magazine’s Jambalaya and sole filets baked in a cucumber-milk sauce. Please help me find them. Thank you.”

Well Maja, here’s the Mardi Gras menu page from 1987. Love that blue Le Creuset casserole pot. Old habits die hard!

The sole baked in milk is not a page we are familiar with. Can anyone help?

Autumn barn party

25 Oct

Huge thanks to Brenda for responding to our Halloween query by sharing these retro pages from the 1970s:

“I found an October 1973 Seventeen Magazine issue that has a barn-themed party but nothing really ‘Halloween-y.’ The recipes for it are all country-cooking type foods but certainly some pumpkin and apple recipes are included. Would you want to post the photos and recipes for your readers?”

If you are one of those readers who has been searching for the Seventeen pumpkin bread baked in a can, wait no longer (true story: that request has been floating around forever).

Seventeen Halloween

17 Oct

For all the 1980s Seventeen Magazine recipe pages we hoard, none of them are Halloween themed.

Sure, there’s the cute cheeseburger patties from a babysitting supper, and an ice cream-filled navel orange turned jackolantern from October 1987:

 

But we don’t recall any Halloween-themed party or recipes pages, do you?

We did find this hoot owl cookie recipe:owl-cookies.jpg

Here’s a goulash soup page, undated, just for the fun of it. Kind of cold weather and very welcome in any witch’s cauldron, we’d guess.
