What's Cooking: 101 Short-Cuts with Tea-Bisk f. Tea Biscuits, Dumplings, Muffins & More -- Vintage Cookbook TBT

Vintage Cookbook: 101 Short-Cuts with Tea-Bisk 

Publication Details: Monarch Flour Brands (c.1948-1952)

Today we are going to take a look at a small cookbook packed full of recipes that are all centered around the classic ingredient "Tea-Bisk".

Tea-Bisk was the Canadian brand equivalent of Bisquick. While Tea-Bisk has been discontinued, you can substitute Bisquick for it in all cases. Alternately you can make a homemade equivalent, which is actually rather easy to do as this link shows.

This no-nonsense, no-frills booklet has 101 home-style dishes that range from, of course, tea biscuits, to dumplings, rich desserts like  Fudge Nut Pudding or savory mains like Chicken Shortcake.

It also has those kinds of recipes that most now find rather dated, like Tea-Bisk Franks -- though I would hazard a guess that these are probably pretty tasty.

I don't think I will be able to long resist trying to make a version of the Swedish Meat Ring recipe!
