Old recipe I still use:
PMS Chocolate (unsafe for men, children, and any female who is -not- PMSing):

Melt a square of Baker's unsweetened chocolate in a pan on the stove. Add 3 tablespoons of butter. Add 1/4 cup of confectioner's sugar. Mix well and briskly, remove from stove when it starts to boil.

Eat directly from the pan.

I am still shuddering from the Crisco salad recipe. I know somebody said it wasn't half bad, but it sounds revolting.

At Christmas, I made scalloped potatoes with mayonaise (they were delicious) and a baked pineapple dish made with Ritz crackers, melted butter, and cheddar cheese.

Baked Pineapple Recipe - Allrecipes.com

The pineapple dish was too buttery for me, but I might tinker with the recipe and make it again in the future. I made it to go with ham.

That chocolate glop is actually amazingly awesome and you can drizzle it over a sponge cake.

I picked up an old cookbook at a second hand store recently that was printed by a Junior League club in Georgia in the 1960's.

Each recipe contribution in it is by a "Mrs. John Smith" or a "Mrs. Jim Brown", etc. Seems so odd now that married women used their husbands name instead of their own in that way back then.

The cookbook is FILLED with recipes containing raw eggs and gooey casseroles filled with fatty meats then slathered with cream cheese and the like. Did people not get sick drinking egg nog with raw eggs in it, etc? Or did the alchohol kill all the bad bacteria?!

No, people didn't really get sick drinking eggnog with raw eggs. I don't like eggnog, but until you just posted today, I didn't realize there was such a thing as eggnog with not-raw eggs. If you cook the eggs, isn't it hard to mix with the other ingredients?

I still make caesar dressing with raw egg, and I make mayonnaise with raw egg. I make my blender mousse with raw egg. There are still plenty of body-builders who swallow raw eggs for the protein every day, and "up easy," meaning, a raw yolk, is still a popular breakfast meal.

There is no "bad bacteria" in eggs, unless a particular batch has been infected with it. Fresh eggs from healthy chickens do not normally come with bad bacteria. Or perhaps I should say, healthy people who eat fresh eggs from healthy chickens, would not experience sickness from something considered "bad bacteria."

Sandwiches made of bread with bacon grease or lard spread on it.

Be grateful for that peanut butter, kids!
