    I loved this cookbook when I was a kid. I remember trying out some of the recipes and being excited when I could make breakfast for my parents on their anniversary. (I'm sure it wasn't great but my mom faked enjoying it.) I've still got a copy to this day, sitting with my more grown up cookbooks I've acquired over the years.

    This Blast From The Past vintage book of 1973 (my copy is dated 1978) will be lots of fun especially for those who have fond memories of reading the Nancy Drew mystery books. It still holds up with classic recipes (albeit with cutesy Nancy Drew related names: Hollow Oak Nest Eggs, Tapping Heels Griddle Cakes, Old Attic Stuffed Tomatoes, Missing Map Cheese Wafers, Sleuth Soup, etc. – you get the idea).The recipes are similar to those found in popular cookbooks of the time period, i.e. Betty Cro [...]

    adorable cookbook, easy to follow recipes for kids and teens, perfect for Nancy Drew lovers! I like how many of the recipes are named after Nancy's mysteries, like Crumbling Wall Coffee Cake or Blackwood Hall Muffins (one of my favorite Nancy Drew books!), Moonstone Castle Carrot Salad or Scarlet Slipper Raspberry Punch. I plan on making Chief McGinnis's waffles, Nancy's scrambler, Ned's potato pancakes, the French quiche and the Haunted Showboat pralines :)

    The recipe names are a hoot! All are references to particular Nancy Drew mysteries. As a big fan of the series as a kid, this was a fun thing to come across at a used bookstore.

    interesting recipes, sound amazing, look delicious, and enticing.

    Who would of thought that Nancy Drew would have her own cookbook! I was pretty excited when I first got this book, I couldn't wait to try out the recipes and see how they all tasted. I yet to try out all the recipes, but so far the ones I tried out are good and bad. Considering this book was first published in 1973, you can expect to find some questionable, yucky recipes in here, like Hannah's Cheese Puffs or Souffle Gruen. Souffle Gruen is the worst recipe I made so far! It. was. FOUL! It was j [...]

    If I had discovered this book when I was nine, I would have spent the next three years talking my mom into letting me try every recipe in this book.For a book challenge, I needed to read a book written the year I was born (1973) and when I stumbled across this in the store, I wanted desperately to buy it just to sit in on the shelf with my childhoold Betty Crocker Junior Cookbook. I checked out the date and as soon as I saw 1973, it was added to my cart. The nostalgia I felt when I read this mak [...]

    This is an interesting cookbook first published in 1973 and has little clues from Nancy Drew on each recipe. I really enjoyed the reference to items you would not find in as much use today for example an aluminum ice tray with the middle rack for cubes. Several of the recipes require the ingredients to be frozen and that called for removing the middle tray of the ice cube tray---really dated me!

    I picked this up for the nostalgia, to be honest the recipes are not that good (even by 70's standards) but I used to take this book out of the library and try to make my first attempts at following recipes. What a blast!

    5 stars purely for its pop culture and nostalgia. If any recipes actually taste good or work its a bonus. Chief Mcginnis' Waffles, Ringmaster's Secret Chicken, and Old Attic Stuffed Tomatos- cracks me up every time. What can I say I'm a hard core Nancy Drew fan.

    I don't cook at all but I do like to look at Cookbooks. especially vintage ones. Vintage finds such as stuffed tomatoes just to mentin a few. Cleverly named for Nancy Drew books, the book had recipes for parties and other special occasions. A great find!!!!

    I went through a big Nancy Drew phase when I was in third grade. While I haven't heard any rave reviews for the recipes, I can't resist the kitsch of names like Scarlet Slipper Raspberry punch, Shadow Ranch Barbecue Beans and Twisted Candles Peach Crisp.

    Nancy
    A scream!!! Loved finding this edition, and love the recipe names. some of them look like they might even turn out! Cannot wait to try some. As a kid I preferred Agatha Christie to Nancy Drew, but as a nancy myself I have a lot of fun re-discovering Nancy. Hysterically kitchy in a way I adore.

    I collect cookbooks, my mother collects Nancy Drew, so voila. My one complaint in this is that the recipes are generally related to the mysteries in name only.

    Staci
    Not one recipe turned out. Some recipes didn't list ingreidents yet had them in the directions. My hero let me down!

    mmmtasty

    Lauren
    Bess, the "pleasantly plump" one naturally has the best recipes. George, the closeted lesbian, has disgusting healthy recipes. Avoid them

    Deb
    Just a fun collectible book that I have had for a few years. If you love Nancy Drew and vintage cookbooks, you'll enjoy it.
