Cooking from Scratch, 1950's Style This will be the beginning of an adventure to the past for most of you. A lot of you will not remember what Moms' (and Grandmas') cooking was all about, because it was before microwaves and convection ovens, and all those new-fangled counter-top ovens that make your meat cook in ten minutes, and brown your cookies without your knowing it! This was how "they" did it, and we all survived, loved the food prepared for us (at least most of it!) and we ate very well. Although we think of that era as a simpler time, many would disagree.
These recipes are from the old school - no, not the 1800's! My Mom and her friends were not that old when these recipes were being used. Here you will find some easy recipes that we hope your family will love. They are simple and nutritious and can be made from the usual ingredients you have in your home. Not all recipes that we found in Granny's attic mentioned the oven temperature or the length time for cooking, so we have added what we believe would work for you.
We hope you will enjoy these recipes from "memory lane" as much as we enjoyed putting them together for you. Our Moms and Grandmothers would be pleased to know that we are still enjoying the product of their labors, so to speak.
