by Andrea I’ve got the first of what’s sure to be many 80’s dessert recipe tests for you this week – Spicy Apples N’ Oats from the Panasonic Microwave Cookbook. I don’t know why they called this recipe Spicy Apples N’ Oats, which sounds a little scary.  This is basically an apple crisp with some nuts in it. Let’s get started! Here’s the ingredients.  Something to note – recipe calls for 4 large baking apples.  I started peeling 5, but that wasn’t anywhere near enough – I ended up adjusting the quantity to 7...

It’s time for an 80s casserole! This is Meat Noodle Casserole! This recipe is from a great book I found recently at my Goodwill, which I was very excited about. Better Homes and Gardens always has the best (and craziest) recipes. And pictures! And yes, that spaghetti pie is coming up very soon.     The main reason that this casserole was picked was because of versatility. I love that this recipe has a “backbone”, so to speak, of ingredients and then gives you plenty of ways to branch out and use what you have on hand. Which...

By RetroRuth This week I was feeling particularly adventurous, so I busted out my Sesame Street glass and I mixed up a fun little drink. That had V-8 in it. And maple syrup. Because, you know, that makes perfect sense.   The best part (!) of this whole thing was that Tom was outside mowing the lawn when I was making this. I hid all the maple syrup evidence before he came in. He had absolutely no idea what he was in for.     “Oh, God! What is this?” “It’s got maple syrup in it.” “Holy…I was expecting a bloody mary....

By RetroRuth Who wants to microwave a pie? Boom! This is Presidential Pie!   This is recipe from a FANTASTIC book from the early 80’s called Microwave Magic that was put out by the Oklahoma Peanut Commission and contains, you guessed it, microwave peanut recipes. As for the name “Presidential Pie”, I am pretty sure this was named for President Carter, who grew peanuts when he was younger. Honestly, I never expected this to work. And it didn’t. Well, it worked and then it didn’t. The crust worked out great. Then I microwaved...
