The '50s were a time of lounge lizards and June Cleaver housewives. When you mix up a stiff drink recipe like Mad Men '50s Style Manhattan Cocktail, you'll be feeling ever better than the bee's knees. Don't be shy, mix yourself up something strong for the summer time and beyond.

Classic Main Dish Recipes and Side Dishes

Do you think people counted calories all those years ago? We can't be sure, but it was a much more innocent and wholesome time and same goes for the easy dinner recipes. We're talking about simple gravy, cole slaw and chicken dinners...what's not to like? Take me back, I want to eat guilt free! Some of the great classic recipes from the 50s are my favorite recipes today. For one, I can't get enough of Chicken Pot Pie. There's something so comforting about indulging in a delicious pastry, filled to the brim with chicken, carrots and peas.

Now to the best part of the meal...dessert. I have to tell you something. I'm addicted to one easy dessert recipe in particular...Banana Pudding? Haven't tried it yet? You are missing out. It has the wonderful, light flavor of fresh bananas, mixed with the delightfully crunchy texture of Nilla wafers. Whenever I dive in, I imagine I'm sitting at a soda fountain with my friends. Malts are another one of those dessert recipes that are so fabulously old fashioned. I can't wait to give the Malt Cake a try.
