    This is wonderful! I don’t eat meat but that Apple-Cheese Pie sounds fabulous!

      Please use a nice cheddar instead of the Velveeta and it will be delicious!

    I’ll take the Peacemakers, thank you. With a nice dirty martini on the side (yes, it is after 7pm in my neck of the woods).

      Oh yes, please. Me? I think most people would characterize how I drink a martini as dirty to the point of murky. But I love them.

        Vicki, I even make a crazy Provençal style dirty martini with olives that are stuffed with anchovies! I know, it sounds crazy but wow is it good…
        And Mr. Kaplan! Behave!!!

        That sounds scrumptious!

    Heather, I find myself wanting to ask what a “nice dirty martini” is but I better not!
    If Jimmy Cagney made that meal would he do it in a particular place? And if he did would he announce it to his mother thusly “Look, ma, made it, top of the world!” OUCH! The horror, the horror!

      Well, a martini sometimes can taste like lighter fluid, but — if you add a good splash of olive juice it makes it savory and wonderful. And yes, sometimes one needs a nice dirty martini to make it back on top of the world 😉

    LOVE the look of this vintage cookbook.

    I’m having a hard time imaginging the Apple-Cheese Pie, however. Apple Pie with a process cheese spread… Well, maybe a person shouldn’t knock it until they try it?

      The look is great, the recipes… not so much 😉
