    I was hoping to find at least one that I'd try. Yuck, none of those will
    ever be on my table.

    And I'm so sick that I feel like I want to try at least one of them. I
    have this weird fascination with recipes that look AWFUL but end up in
    cookbooks, with pictures even.

    I've got a small collection of these sorts of cookbooks. Sometimes I
    think about starting a blog that just reviews the recipes from them.

    (OMG, it came back after it's introduction!)

    So, Idugall, what made you choose that phrasing in your message when
    you intruoduced yourself? What book or guide ld you to post that
    message and how to word it? We're curious.

    As for your appropriate and interesting post,

    I think I've had things similar to #19. They're not bad. You can
    still find them on cheap salad bars in the South as a dessert dish.

    Is it just me, or do most of these 'dishes' look pre-eaten and partially
    digested?

    and the Cream of Celery with swiss cheese isn't bad either.

    I thought the reuben chowder was an idea I might like trying, but I wouldn't
    use the recipe given.

    I picked up a set of Southern Living Cookbooks cheap (around 95 cents each)
    from a used book store. Published in the late 60's, early 70's. They all
    contain really disgusting recipes. But they're very amusing. Did people
    really cook these things? The one that really got to me was the lime jellow
    combined with canned tuna. Ewwwww! The photos are fun.

    This, of course, brings me back to this infamous web site:

    At the bi-annual library book sale (I know, another thread, sorry!),
    there's a table with cookbooks and a ton of the "antique" kitchen
    appliance and food brand recipe booklets. I sweep them up. The book sale
    cost $5/ea. for as much as you can stuff into each plastic bag they
    provide.

    I have around $50 of them in the closet in the guest bedroom. easily
    accounting for at least 20,000,000 of the worst dishes from here to the
    next universe and beyond! If, at some point in the future, the earth gets
    blown to bits, it'll probably be all my fault! LOL!!!

    Maybe a collector's item in the bunch was my initial motivation, although
    I quickly ran out of motivation to go through them all.

    I don't know, the "Circle Pups" is fairly innoucuous, especially
    if made with decent kraut. Seriously, it's just a hotdog and bun
    with kraut in an open face sandwich presentation.

    The beef bake seemed sort of OK, in a cheap throw-something-together
    kind of way. Though, I admit most of the others were hard to believe.

    Some of these are certainly bad dishes, but others are just just bad
    recipes. Several of these I like; cheese balls, fruit cake cookies,
    franks & sauerkraut, although I may not like those specific recipes.

    The Treet cooked in marmalade bears a strong resemblance to the Spam cooked
    in pineapple juice and marshmallows that was on the menu in my first grade
    cafeteria. And we had to eat it all before we were excused.

    The first picture of the aspic hot dogs reminded me of a dish on the
    Japanese Iron Chef. It was jellied fish roe served in an aspic soup. The
    judges slurped it off a spoon in long, sticky threads. I almost tossed my
    dinner watching that one.

    I am very impresssed that the original blogger didn't just make fun of
    old cookbooks, but made the stuff. A perverse Julie and Julia project
    that I could see myself doing.

    About the aspic - I've mentioned the cookbook from White Castle. My
    favorite picture, not from a real recipe, was a slider suspended in a
    classic dome-shaped jello mold. Some of the real recipies were almost
    as bad.

    And drifting - I know some people, mostly Polish immigrants, who
    really like aspic and head cheese. I don't get it. Do you eat this
    stuff? I'll make aspic once in a while, but for soup dumplings, and
    then when it is done, it is not aspic anymore, it is soup. Is it a
    salad? A condiment?
