I was always torn. Ginger or Mary Ann?

bahahaha!

Ginger, Tina Louise, is the last surviving cast member of
Gilligan's Island TV program.
As I recall, the opening shots in the series of the "deserted island",
was in Kaneohe Bay, on Oahu Hawaii, where I'm from, we call it Coconut Island.
This isn't very far from my house, just right up the hill there.

I think a bit of both, of course! Now....the professor...there just was not any contest there.

Interesting. Sort of pedestrian, like Betty Crocker. But cute names for the dishes.

Dawn Wells was a pretty good cook. I saw her on Chopped.

I love cookbooks. Honestly all cookbooks, but especially ones from someone that associates it with something else familiar. Like the Mayberry Cookbook which has recipes from the crew of Mayberry. Such fun to read. And I will read them like a novel.
