RRC#3 Guidelines for Non-Bloggers

Whip out your aprons, warm up your ovens, and grab yourself a nip of sherry ‘cause it’s time for the latest Retro Recipe Challenge!

For Retro Recipe Challenge #3, create a recipe (from any publication) originally published within five years of your birth year.

If you can find a great recipe that comes from your year of birth, great! If not, you’ve got five years of wiggle room to find something you’re really interested in making. (This IS about having fun!)

For example, I was born in 1977 so I’ll look for recipes published between 1972 and 1982. This might include Chile and Chorizo Cornbread(1977), Pasta Primaveria(1975), or Chile Relleno Casserole (1982).

My mom was born in 1952, so she might whip up Lobster Newberg (1950), German Apple Pancakes (1952), or Barbecue Potato Cheese Meatloaf.

Of course, you don’t have to limit your search to online resources. Check out the library, scour garage sales, mess around in Grandma’s attic.

To participate, just send an email by Sunday, Oct. 15 at 11:59pm EST to RetroRecipeChallengeATgmailDOTcom with “RRC#3” in the subject line. Please include:

  • The recipe
  • The year the recipe was published
  • Where the recipe came from (your source)
  • How it tasted and what your experience making it was like
  • Attach a photograph of your food creation (optional)
  • Your name and hometown, with as much/as little information as is comfortable: "Carolyn from NYC” or “Food-lover from Florida”

  • Good luck and get cooking!

    A big thank you to Sugar High Friday blog for setting the groundwork & details for non-blogger submissions.
