Recipes

Join the exclusive Astronaut Wives Club. Whip up some "launch party" fare for your book club's A.W.C. meeting. All the vintage food from The Astronaut Wives Club ABC miniseries, from the Moon Meatloaf and blue potato buds "lunar frosting" to Green Jell-O mold with marshmallows, maraschino cherries and canned pineapple, developed by Hollywood food stylist Emily Garrett-Marshall.

A note from Emily

"Let the visuals be your guide. Don't worry too much about being authentic to the old recipes, which, more often than not, were marketing attempts on the part of major food manufacturers in the post-WWII era. Your replacement for a bright red cherry might not have the same insane red-dye-retro look, but follow your heart and do what is best for you, I bet a grape floating in whipped cream is just as crazy awesome as a cherry. Are you a vegetarian? No problem! Use veggie dogs instead of hot dogs, replace gelatin with agar, use non-dairy butter instead of real. In all of these cases, the results will vary, but the point should be have fun, don't take it too seriously, and try to make something you'll eat."
