Great Retro Cookbook

Life According To GreenVics Holiday Gift Guide

Sometimes I wish I was from the time of cocktails, and when you were either a Jackie O, or Marilyn type of gal.  The look, and recipes are a time to go back to, when people cooked at home, and went out to eat at legendary restaurants. This cookbook is full of recipes from Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants as seen on Mad Men.


THE UNOFFICIAL MAD MEN COOKBOOK by Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin has it all.  There are over 70 recipes ranging from Cocktails, Appetizers, Salads, Main Courses, and Deserts & Sweets.

This Cookbook would be a great gift for someone that wants to learn to cook, and entertain.  Or, if you are just a huge Don Drapper fan.

Not only is the cookbook full of recipes, but also historical, and cultural content.

My favorite recipe tho would have to be the pineapple upside down cake. It's simple, and to the point.  I can remember my Grandma making it, and my mom making me it.  Now I make it for my family.  It's just one of those recipes that I *believe* everyone should know how to make for their family!

You can Retrogress with The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook on Facebook & Twitter.

I mention all the time how much I love sweet things.. This is one of my favorite cakes to bake.  Not only is it DELICIOUS! But it's like a work of art too!  It's fun to arrange the pineapple slices, and cherries.

Tho sometimes I get lazy, and just do it like this, Lol.  It all tastes the same! I made two pineapple down sheet cakes. 

Now I need a Martini please! Oh, and I hope I made you hungry.

I received this book for free for my honest opinion.   The Unofficial MadMen Cookbook retails for $16.95.  I was not told what to write/nor say, or to cook/try from the book.  This was all meee.
