TV Dinners combines America’s nostalgia for Classic TV with its love of good food by sharing recollections and favorite dishes from 40 of the most popular kid stars of the50s, the ’60s, and ’70s. As American as apple pie, it captures all the fun and warmth of the era while giving insight into what it was like to be a working kid during TV’s Golden Age. From the Mouseketeers to the Brady Bunch, the stories are funny, charming, poignant, and often revealing.
When not on set, these kids knew all the best places to hang out! From drive-ins and ice cream joints to family recipes, we can delight in their memories of simpler times. These kid stars share their favorite recipes from their heyday and today, including a heaping helping of rare photos, and detailed biographies. We didn’t just watch these kids grow up; we grew up with them. They were our childhood friends, and this book is a reunion.
