White Spaghetti Recipe

 Spaghetti is a favorite dish at our house. We probably eat it two or three times a month, and that’s not counting leftovers! Usually, we make it with tomato sauce and meatballs. Sometimes I try a different approach. This week I made what I’m calling White Spaghetti. It tasted good enough, that the husband went back for a second helping. How did I come up with the inspiration for this recipe? Easy, I looked in the cupboard to see what ingredients I had that could be blended into a meal. I’ve found this can be quite challenging at times. Especially when the cupboards are looking like Old Mother Hubbard’s. That is why I try to keep on hand some staples, such as pasta, canned soup and frozen vegetables. You never know when we’re going to have a good old fashioned snow storm!   [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:8] If your family doesn’t care for peppers and onions, you could use mixed vegetables.

1970 Portable Electric Cookery ~ Vintage Cookbook

This cookbook is the type that was included with the purchase of an electric kitchen appliance. The intention of this sort of cookbook was to train the housewife how to use her new appliance and encourage her to use all the features on the appliance. Sunbeam included this particular edition with the Sunbeam Multi-Cooker Frypan. This appliance is commonly known today as an electric skillet. The first few pages of the book are dedicated to technical instructions on “Use and Care” of the appliance. Don’t you love looking through old cookbooks? I always feel like a time traveler when I open a cookbook and read the recipes. The ingredients are sometimes “unusual” compared to what we use today. The measurements sometimes are intriguing. The pictures fascinate me! This book is no exception… Printed with large color photos throughout, this book appears to hardly have been used. Recipes have a small sketch of the Sunbeam Electric appliance that would be used in preparation. For example, one recipe has both a blender and fry pan. Fun, educational, entertaining … and can be yours, to buy, click here. … Continue reading →
