Desserts from the Fridge

250 Luscious Refrigerator Desserts
Berolzheimer, ed.
1954

For those of you with a sweet tooth, here is your source for all sorts of treats that use your fridge/freezer. Of course there are recipes for ice cream, Baked Alaskas, cookies, pies and puddings. Unfortunately, the black and white photography doesn’t really help with appeal factors. The cover shot is ice cream, in case you didn’t recognize the food. (I had to look several times to be sure). However, if you like your food with a creepy face, check out the second picture after the text.

Snag a boyfriend with a meal!

Teen-Time Cooking
with Carnation
Blake
1959

Want to be one of the cool kids? Break out the apron and you can be popular and throw the perfect party with help from this little book. Naturally, Sad Susie is totally unpopular with the boys, but she can at least get her girlfriends together and throw a little party. One of those girls might have a cute brother or cousin and with your cooking skills you might be able to snag a new boyfriend. Naturally, we have a molded tuna salad recipe with gelatin to make sure you can properly “shape” your food. I am sure this recipe is a sure bet for attracting a man.

Fancy and Versatile Cottage Cheese

The Cottage Cheese Cookbook
Kaufman
1967

Gotta love the versatility of cottage cheese! Who knew? As you can see from the pages, the food looks absolutely delicious! I think it is all the black and white photography. (The cottage cheese is the white stuff, in case you need help identifying.)

Be sure to check out the recipe for the Cottage Cheese Salad Mold. I dare anyone to make and eat this. Unfortunately, there is no photograph of said dish, since it would probably induce vomiting. Aside from those few who feel that cottage cheese is underappreciated in the cookbook world, I think it would be in the best interests of everyone if we let this book go.
