Fun blog - Caker Cooking

Caker (derived from mangiacake) is a term affectionately given by Italian Canadians to their less-culinarily sophisticated English Canadian friends. I recently found this blog celebrating bologna sandwiches and tuna casseroles and I wanted to share it with you.

Look on with laughter and terror at the cuisine of my people...

  1. Thoughts:

    I just had to look up 'mangiacake' on Urban Dictionary and now you spring 'caker' on me? Groan. LOL.

    Secondly, I was really worried the blog would be a put down. But it actually appreciates caker recipes, so I'm relieved.

    *I* like to make fun of recipes like those (tater tot casserole, anyone?) too. But that doesn't stop me from eating them.

    1. Wow! Bookmarked! What a great much more than recipes! Even the comments are funny.
      Thanks so much for sharing.

        No problem! I was hoping someone might get a kick out of it!

      2. Thanks for sharing this ... brought back many a memory of church socials, bridal showers, bake sales and the like.
