Episode Notes

Stuck inside with no one to cook for, Megan Morgan makes a drink - and then wonders what the drinks in her oldest cookbook might be like. When she opens a 1961 copy of the Betty Crocker New Picture Cookbook, she discovers plenty of punch recipes stripped of alcohol. This leads to a deeper discussion of the cookbook and what it says about the 1960s and our modern era, with lots of tangents about Megan's cooking life.
