The Cookstr Weekly: Retro-Inspired Meals for #ThrowbackThursday

March 12, 2015

Maybe it’s trudging through these last weeks of winter. Maybe it’s looking forward to the return of Mad Men. Either way, I’m thinking about classic, simple recipes, the kind you look forward to at the end of a long day. Foods like potpie and pot roast and roast chicken.

So this week, we’ve put together a combination of those classic recipes, by authors like Julia Child and James Beard, along with newer takes inspired by favorite dishes from decades past.

Warmest regards,

Cheese balls were all the rage in the 1970s, an easy, tasty, fab party food for any occasion. What’s old is now retro-chic- this lightened-up cheese ball seduces with the sweetness of dates, the savory bite of blue cheese, a hint of shallot, and a teasing whiff of lemon zest.” – Diane Morgan

This hearty breakfast bread is a wonderful combination of sweet and savory. The bacon adds richness enhanced by the Cheddar cheese and balanced by the sweet maple glaze. On top of being satisfying and delicious, it’s incredibly easy to make and keeps very well for subsequent meals.”
