I love Sepia Saturdays by Alan Burnett and since this week they are featuring old photos from the kitchen, baking, or anything that can be considered a memento on the topic of cooking - I tried looking through my grandmother's old albums to feature, maybe she would have a photo whilst whipping up something in the kitchen, but unfortunately no I don't have any for now.
But then I just got excited to feature a few pages from a Ladies Home Journal July 1984 with Princess Diana then on the cover. You may also join us this week :HERE:
This magazine is one I've kept for quite awhile since getting it at a discount store. Now I'm glad I did because some ads and features are a must to share!
Here is an ad for Ideals Country Kitchen Cookbooks. I find the compelling ways they advertise cookbooks in the magazines during the 80's. The ad features all the recipes you need to make superb desserts, country bread, gourmet meals, soups, salad and sandwich combos, easy cake decorating, etc. The ad makes my mouth watering already, so who could resist? It promises and delivers. The ad was for Ideals Country Kitchen Cookbooks with address in 11315 Watertown Plank Road, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53226
Here is an 80's advert of Borden Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk which features a cut-out recipe card for Fresh Fruit Cheese Pie. The procedure for baking must have been different from how we usually bake cheese pies now. We may find the difference in Eagle Brand's website here
And here is an old advertisement of Tappan Electric Range from Tappan Appliances, Mansfield, Ohio. Tappan is quality cooking. Tappan is such a beautiful buy. It's the perfect marriage of beauty and durability.
I love the 80's look of this kitchen! Nostalgic for me :)
Looking forward to next Saturday's feature!
