Things have been pretty quiet around here at Rookie Cookery, but I am so enamored with Bethany Herwegh over at her blog The Glamorous Housewife that I am compelled to share my girl-crush. (That's her in the picture above).
I do love the vintage aesthetic, and that does not seem to be dissipating any time soon. Bethany is all about the very funky mid-century style on her blog, from clothing styles to housewares-- you name it. But what has finally bowled me over is her new "Making It Modern" cooking feature, where she takes a very vintage, old-school, "what were they thinking!?" style recipe and updating it for the modern palate and style. This is not only clever and educational, but downright hilarious, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Case in point: Bethany's recent Making It Modern recipe that updates this lovely concoction from 1944 called "Super Salad Loaf". Here's the original:
And here is Bethany's dramatic (shudder) re-creation:
BUT WAIT! The best is yet to come, because Bethany has made this modern by creating a Spring Pea Crostini with Lemon Ricotta recipe that looks truly delicious. You really owe it to yourself to hop on over to Bethany's Youtube channel and see how she worked this--and many other modern miracles-- on vintage recipes. It is highly entertaining, and don't forget to hit the subscribe button while you are at it.
