January is National Sunday Supper month and I decided to travel back int time to the 70's to try some retro recipes. ☮ I was introduced to a cookbook published in 1977 at my job and was inspired to give some the of the recipes a whirl.
I have only tried Fondue once before and I really loved it. This was a very popular recipe in the 70's. It is actually quite simple to make at home.
-1 1/2 tbs of butter
-1 tbs of cornstarch
-1/2 tsp of salt
-1 cup of milk
-1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
-1 cup of shredded swiss
In a sauce pan melt the butter and then add in the cornstarch and salt. Mix until combined and then add the milk. Once the mixtures comes to a boil then add in your cheese. Stir continuously until the cheese has melted. You can dip meat, bread, veggies etc..
To make this Frozen Banana Salad dessert I used a vintage mold that I found at the thrift store. I found this recipe to be very delicious and refreshing. It would make for a great summer time treat!
You will need:
-2 ripe bananas
-2/4 cup of sugar
-1 can of crushed pineapples
-2 tbs of lemon juice
-2 tbs of maraschino cherries
-1 cup of sour cream
-Mash the bananas and combine all of the ingredients. Place in a mold and freeze in the freezer to set.
This recipe for Salmon Mousse was just so bizarre that I just had to try it. I purchased a vintage salmon mold for this one.
-2 envelopes of gelatin
-1 1/2 cups of cold water
-1 cup of mayo
-1 cup of sour cream
-1 can of salmon(flaked)
-1 small cucumber chopped
-1 tbs of lemon juice
-Paprika, salt and pepper to taste
Soften the gelatin in the water and stir over low heat to dissolve and allow to cool. In a bowl combine the mayo, sour cream and stir in the gelatin. Chill in the fridge for just a few minutes to firm slightly. Mix in the salmon, cucumber, lemon juice and seasoning. Spray the salmon mold with non-stick cooking spray and pour in mixture. Chill in the fridge until firm. I suggest overnight.
