Tonight I decided to look through some old cook books I saved from my mom. She had the cook books forever and decided it was time to give them to Good Will; I was not about to let that happen and took them. I found some great recipes and dinner ideas I'm really excited to try. I also fell upon cooking techniques that made me laugh only because some of these techniques I hear spoken about on the Food Network as brilliant new ideas; I don't think so.
Here is an example of an old idea but now talked about as a new idea.
Baking pastry over inverted muffin tins!
The inverted muffin tin idea is printed in this cook book; published in 1966.
