The Nightmare Foods of a 1970 Cookbook

Who doesn't love creamed egg cassarole in a corned beef crust? Or how about seafood loaf complete with noodles and tuna? Ok, I'm kidding, these are the things nightmares are made of. And if you think they sound bad, just wait until you see the photos.

These recipes and more horrifying ideas are courtesy of a 70s cookbook called Happy Living! A Guidebook for Brides that was given away for free when brides registered at a regional department store. As if the foods weren't awful enough, the advice is also attrocious -like how to decorate your table and garnish your foods because those are the only satisfying things in your life and the only way to keep your husband happy with you.

There are ethnic dishes that sound horrid, but are quite delicious. From my background, we serve cold fish hamburgers; large, flat saltines (with no salt); and clear broth made from chicken feet.
