Modern electric kitchens, stay-at-home moms, and unprecedented American prosperity combined to make the 1950s the golden age of American cooking. Illustrated throughout with vintage color photos of finished plates, this collection of nostalgic and delicious recipes includes such favorites as barbecued chicken, sloppy joes, kebobwiches, chili dogs, bean salad, homemade biscuits and gravy, chicken casserole, juicy hamburgers, deviled eggs, chocolate cake, and of course apple pie. Also presented are anecdotes and pictures of the 1950s culture of sock-hops, suburbs, and drive-ins that inspired the popular menu choices of that era. The selected dishes recapture a spirit of simplicity and wholesomeness, and were chosen with an eye to the recipes that Mom inherited from Grandma and ones she developed herself. Most of the recipes are for oven or stove-top meals, although in some cases microwave instructions are included where appropriate.
