The recipes in these little cookbooks are the reason they invented Statin drugs.
Egg noodle ham casserole, macaroni meatloaf, hamburger turnovers and chicken patty shortcake.
My favorite is “shrimp salad short pie“. I would have never thought to combine shrimp, tomatoes and olives in a short bread crust…explosive!
Ok, Im all ready to start making Jiffy Fudge. Its one of the many healthy recipes in the cookbook.

Chocolate
Butter 
Sugar
Vanilla 

You might as well crush up a couple of Lipitors and add them to the mix!!!
 
WoW...Mrs. Crocker!!!
Fun with Frostings.
In the Sears, Roebuck’s cookbook there’s a dessert called “Mystery Delight”. I’ll bet Betty C. would love that one.
Especially for you, Sue Whitney. Now you dont need to ask What can I bring? when you stop by for Thanksgiving.

Here’s an easy way to keep recipes off your wet kitchen counter...and at eye level too! This vintage clothes hanger is the perfect solution.

JunkArchitect writes: Sue, start looking for your vintage beater because I added a photo of the "Mystery Delight" dessert recipe and there is apparently quite a bit of whipped cream involved.

But, Oh, dear, does it really 'date' me to admit I am actually using a vintage one of the hangers to hang up a skirt?(I have several, BTW, and they work well!) Oh, well, that's the way it goes at our house! (Love the cookbook/recipe booklets you've found.)

georgiamoon writes: Well, Jimmy you are so very clever. What a great way to keep those fabulous recipes off the counter, clean, and ready to go! Please NEVER actually make those dishes...we'd like to keep you around for a while! So So So FUNNY!!

And I would also suggest you NEVER eat anything with the word "Mystery" in the name!!!
