Alice's Brady Bunch CookbookAlice's BRADY BUNCH Cookbook - Cookbook inspired by the Brady family housekeeper Alice Nelson (Ann B. Davis) on the sitcom THE BRADY BUNCH/ABC/1969-74.

Written by Ann B. Davis (with Ron Newcomer and Diane Smolen), the cookbook features a variety of recipes relating to characters and instances drawn from the original series. Some examples:

  • Brady Family Favorite Quiche
  • Marcia, Marcia, Marcia Muffins
  • Davy Jones' Fan Club Sandwich
  • Carol Brady's Spiced Beef and Vegetables
  • Greg Gets Grounded Grilled Lamb
  • Mike's Favorite Potato Salad
  • Tiger's Hush Puppies
  • Cindy's Buttery Just Butter Cookies
  • A Very Brady Pumpkin and Ice Cream Pie
  • Kitty Karryall Cocoa (named after Cindy's beloved but ugly doll)

The book also featured some of Alice's favorites including Alice's Famous Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles; Alice's Ever Popular Meat Loaf; Sam Loves Alice Lamb Chops; and Sam the Butcher's Favorite Sandwich (liverwurst, red onion cheese, mustard, and butter on rye).

In the book's acknowledgment section Ann B. Davis confesses "Personally, I can't cook...Ron and his wife Diane Smolen did all the gathering choosing, checking, testing" to create the recipes in the cookbook.

Ms. Davis did, however, contribute her secret ingredients for the "Ann Bs One and Only Beef Jerky" recipe (on page 218). The cookbook was published by Rutledge Press, 1994. See also - Character Bios: "Alice Nelson"
