It's not that she expected me to actually use The Blender Way to Better Cooking. She knows that I make the rounds of used book stores and donate what they don't take. But, me being me, it wasn't going into the box to get rid of without my looking through it first. Which makes me glad that we have progressed since 1965.
The "nutritious lemonade" recipe, which basically blends a raw egg into otherwise innocent lemonade, is bad enough. But the kicker is the recipe for "spiced iced coffee". The ingredients for that are:
1 c. cold water
1 6 ounce bottle cola
1/4 c. light cream
1 c. crushed ice
2 T. sugar
1 T. instant coffee
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
That's all blended together and allegedly serves 3 people. Presumably, that means three people who don't actually like coffee.
And that's only on p. 16 of the book!
