Celebrate the Return of 'Mad Men'! by Mackenzie, Editor

The absence of Mad Men has been painful. Come Sunday, March 25th at 9pm, it’ll have been 524 days since the last episode. Five hundred and twenty four days since we’ve seen Don Draper standing in his office, sipping bourbon, staring with intense purpose at nothing in particular—maybe a chair—with an expression on his face that says, “Listen, chair, I’ve got something to say to you. On second thought, never mind—you’re not even worth it, chair.” I’ve missed that guy.

Too long. It has been too long!

So, let’s toast the return of the ad men of Madison Avenue (and, of course, the copywriting woman—Peggy really kills it with the resonating, succinct copy. I could learn a thing or two…) with some retro—i.e. stiff-as-a-board—cocktails. Plus, a Betty-inspired dinner menu that’ll take you back to the kitchen of a happy-on-the-outside, miserable-on-the-inside homemaker of the 1960’s.

Cheers to sharp suits and cocktails before noon!

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
