The answers to this week’s contest … and a bonus!
Let’s hear it for frequent Fat City commenter Karen Geary, who had the most correct answers in our “Name the vanished restaurants contest,” which wasn’t nearly as easy as we thought.
|Tempt your valentine with some Blueberry Boy-Bait|
A mint-condition edition of Pillsbury’s 5th annual 100 Grand National Recipes from 1954, featuring recipes for such prized culinary treasures as Mrs. Harold Johnson’s constipation-busting Prune Whip Spice Cake (“The prune whip idea is in the frosting — a fluffy topping made with cooked prunes, more prune juice and toasted almonds”); Cheese Cocoa Cake from Mrs. Guy Best of Dearborn, Missouri (the secret ingredient is cottage cheese!); and that fantabulous creation from Miss Marlyce Ann Snay of Haven, Kansas: Chicken Salad Pie!
But the real prize in this prize cookbook is the recipe from teen queen Renny Powell of Chicago: Blueberry Boy-Bait. (A friend of mine insists it was one of the late Bob Berdella’s favorite snacks).
The recipe for this dessert — and the answers to the contest questions — after the jump.
