Retro Recipe Challenge #3 Call for Suggestions

"Oh, I just don't know what to make!"

In two weeks, the next theme for the Retro Recipe Challenge will announced. But what should the theme should be?




Drug paraphernalia crafted from roadside-stand produce? (Mmmm-mmm!)

Post your ideas in the comments section below or send them to me at .
Thanks for your help -- you're the most!

I vote for casseroles. What's more retro than that, and also something people don't blog about that much.

Hhhmmmm...let's keep it in the family. How 'bout, "Mother's (or grandmother's) best recipe?"

I like Kevin's idea of 'mothers' (family recipes?) - but only because it's doable for me as I don't have a casserole dish to go with Kalyn's suggestion and payday just won't come soon enough so I can get one!

brightly colored! jello, sunshine cake...

Uh-oh. The only thing my mom ever cooked was Bad Casseroles. Just kidding! I think a fall/autumnal theme would be fab... or anything related to those godawful bakesales that are gearing up at school. We could all make fudge- I know my husband would approve!

Hmmm. I wonder if we should offer recipes for retro comfort food. It seems to me (perhaps because I am an academic and still therefore live on that schedule of August is the new year) that now is the time for comfort food. Or maybe it is just I am at work, and it is pouring and. . . . it is not even 8 a.m. yet.

Maybe retro with a twist -- something old and something new?

It's interesting; when I think retro, I find myself thinking "American" too. For some reason retro seems non-ethnic to me, which can't be right? It is also bringing out family stuff for people -- which raises, of course, the issue of what counts as family and the many ways that term if under debate today.

Maybe a recipe from gourmet during the year of one's birth? Tinkered with in some way?

Hmmm. Ok, better get back to work. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Nothing original, but I'd place a vote for bakesale themes or birth-year recipes.

I was leaning toweard a bakesale recipe until I saw the comment from emily on a birthyear recipe. It could be a bakesale item of your birth year - that's a bit reaching huh? lol
