10 Recipes Inspired by Our Favorite TV Moms
Give new meaning to the term "TV dinner" by eating like June Cleaver, Lorelai Gilmore, Carol Brady and more of television's leading ladies.
Mrs. Cleaver is often portrayed as the “perfect” mother. And in true 1950s fashion, she would always have a hot meal on the table for Ward, Wally and “the Beaver.” We bet this meat loaf and mashed potato recipe was part of her dinner rotation.
Saying Lorelai (and her daughter, Rory) are obsessed with coffee is a bit of an understatement. The mother-daughter duo also shares a major sweet tooth, so these coffee brownies would definitely be a hit. Hey Luke, put ‘em on the diner menu!
Even though Alice did most of the cooking for the Brady clan, Carol still liked to help out. She was in the kitchen helping to prepare the infamous “pork chops and applesauce” as Peter tried on new personalities. Make your own version of the classic dish with this yummy recipe.
There’s a running joke on the show that the only thing Debra knows how to cook is Lemon Chicken. Now you, too, can create her signature dish. Just make sure to grab a robe if you’re expecting any futon deliveries as you cook.
In one of the show’s most iconic episodes, Lucy and Ethel try to prove to their men that a job is easier than housework. But when left at the chocolate factory—with a conveyor belt full of rapidly approaching truffles—the ladies start stuffing them in their mouths and blouses!
Wilma is a good cook, and we imagine she often served her family these turkey…err, dinosaur…legs. Sorry, Dino.
Ma Ingalls always taught her girls to look on the bright side. Even during times of hardship, she found ways to help her family thrive. Just like this vinegar pie, Ma knew how to turn a sour situation into something sweet.
Tami is just as much of a pillar in her Texas community as her husband, the football coach. She gives great advice and works hard to be the best version of herself. We bet Tami would love to snack on these tailgate pies as she’s cheering for the home team.
