Snappy Mackeral Casserole, Etc.



This series of Weight Watchers Recipe Cards from the 1960s made me laugh out loud. The author does a great job at illustrating how absurd these photos and recipes are. I love this period of cookbook photography with the garish colors, quirky choice of words and hilarious choices of props. I cannot imagine somebody showing up to a potluck these days with "Frankfurter Spectacular" or "Mackerelly." I wonder if anyone ever actually made these recipes and thought they were good.
