Blues Ribbon Recipes: A 1991 Cookbook

eBay is a wonderful thing, especially when it comes to old charity cookbooks. Here I share the best from the Blues'.

In 1991, to celebrate the Blues' 25th anniversary as well as to raise money for the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, the Blues released their Blues Ribbon Recipes cookbook. They're not the only St. Louis team to do so; the Cardinals also released one in 1985. eBay is a tremendous, wonderful thing - I bought both for under $15 each.

Have I cooked anything out of them yet? No, not really. I don't think that's why I bought them - I bought them for fun, and I bought them for the kitsch factor. The 1964 St. Louis biennial cookbook I just bought? I'm cooking all kinds of stuff out of that one (except aspics - no aspics).

I thought it'd be fun to flip through and get a big dose of 80s and 90s nostalgia, and I wasn't disappointed. Tonight, I share with you the Blues Ribbon Recipes cookbook. If possible, due to copyright reasons, I may help Viva El Birdos to something with the Cards cookbook.

Let's begin, shall we?

Lemon bars. Is there anything else more Ron Caron than that?

John Kelly once had hair. He also likes Beef Stroganoff. Discuss.

Hull and Oates don't have time for your "two recipe requests."
