Gender-Specific Eatin'

mighty good eating, oh, yes Don't be fooled by the variety of foods mentioned in this section heading to the left. Although I'm intrigued by the attempt to use the word "brown" as an attractive descriptor for food, a glance through the various old-time menus and recipe cards tells me that when it comes to man-style eating, only one entrée will do...

Here's my crackpot theory: Maybe the Betty Crocker cookbooks editors were men who were still bitter about that pesky Eve absconding with one of Adam's ribs back in the Garden of Eden. That's the only reason I can think of for the obsession with "manly" rib recipes.

Oh, sure, the occasional "Lamb Chops with Minted Fruits" recipe is thrown in, perhaps to fill up space while another scrumptious rib recipe was being developed, but believe me, when it comes to meals men like, it's all about ribs.

It's just not ribs.





...and, yes, more ribs!
