Cook like Edith Bunker, Lucy Ricardo and Caroline Ingalls.
Edith Bunker cooked comforting dinners like swiss steak for husband Archie Bunker on the television show, All in the Family.
Cuban husband Ricky Ricardo requested Latin cuisine like arroz con pollo, even if Lucy didn’t know what it was. We think he’d like this Cuban rice and beef dinner, too.
June Cleaver was a quintessential housewife of the 1950s, cooking a homemade dinner for her family every day. We think Beaver would love to come home to this Salisbury steak.

Watching Detective Steve McGarrett catch bad guys in the beautiful state of Hawaii has our mouths drooling for Hawaiian food, like this banana-y pot roast.
