Phylli Dilli Chilli

This was real. This was a real thing. The late, great Phyllis Diller had her own line of chili and apparently it wasn’t half bad.

Except for the puns.

You can judge for yourself what kind of a kook cook she was by playtesting her recipe for stuffed mushroom caps, from the Celebrity Cookbook byy Johna Blinn.

Warning: it comes from the days when salt, pepper, and parsley comprised the bulk of a cook’s spice repertoire. Click to enlarge, if you DARE! Can you imagine what Food Network would be like with a Phyllis Diller cooking show? It would be like a kegger at Auntie Mame’s, that’s what it would be like, and she would snap Giada like a twig.
