Sphere: Campus Chocolate Bars

Campus Chocolate Bars 
College Cook-In
Sphere Magazine, October 1973

Campus Chocolate Bars, like the Granola Bread, are part of Sphere's College Cook-In Recipe Collection.

This seems like a renamed version of Hello Dolly bars, with an added powdered sugar topping.

Sphere: Granola Bread

Granola Bread & Homemade Granola
College Cook-In
Sphere Magazine, October 1973

This two-in-one recipe was included in Sphere as a promotion for their College Cook-In Recipe Collection ("over 50 super ways to nutritious, delicious inexpensive dishes"). Readers were advised to mail in an order form in the back of the magazine, plus $1.

"Try baking bread from some of the yummy Granola your mother sent you. Our honey-filled Granola is super for snacks & great for quick breakfasts."
Yes, Sphere Magazine capitalized Granola both times; don't look at me. I don't know what's up with that.

I can't wait to try this granola recipe. Coconut, oats & brown sugar sounds enticing!

Sphere: Pumpkin Raisin Bread

Seasonal Specials: Pumpkin & Squash
Pumpkin Raisin Bread + Pumpkin Pie Spice Glaze

Pumpkin Raisin Bread, Pumpkin Butter & Pickled Pumpkin

This recipe sounds like a keeper!

Sphere: Pineapple Cheesecake

Pineapple Cheesecake + Sour Cream Topping
The Programmed Potluck
Sphere Magazine, October 1973

"Our hostess wears our elegant Greek-design embroidered apron to serve the creamy Pineapple Cheesecake dessert. You can make your own apron by ordering instructions through the coupon offer on page 65. Additional photos of the apron appear on pages 18-19."

I think the apron was cuter in the artsy photo shoot. At a regular old dinner party, it makes you look like a preschool teacher or the caterer. 

I've never heard of cottage cheese used in a cheesecake before, aside from German quark ("In Germany, quark and cottage cheese are considered to be different types of fresh cheese")

Sphere: Embroidered Apron

I'm not much of an apron person, but that is some quality embroidery! Design: Virginia Bath. Embroidery: Sylvia Roe Bath
This breathtaking photo was shot by Jerry Salvati. Doesn't it make you swoon ?
