    Debra I would be down for that. Actually, I am VP of my culinary historians club here is Southern California. I could really go down a rabbit hole with all this.

    Huskee Spinaker thoughts?

    To make it very 1970’s, everything is from a can and/or cool whip. None of this fancy, modern, artisanal, fresh stuff.

    And there is the celery I remember! Thank you so much.

    Other typical inclusions: Mandarin Oranges, chopped celery, shredded/grated carrots, diced/minced apples...Oh, I'll remember more, given time

    We should start a Family Recipes section. So many old recipes that were remarkably good are hidden away now. I have a few daily recipes from my GreatGrandmother that were written for the harvest crews she fed. Remarkable the amount of food and work she put into those meals as they were considered part of a days pay way back then.

    We used to call it the Mean Green Jello in our house. But Mom always used Cool Whip instead of cottage cheese. I love that stuff. Made it a few times for my family and they gave it a meh. I keep telling them they are nuts but leaves more for me !! Thanks for the memory !!

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
