Indulge in some 80s nostalgia food for your retro themed date night or fun trip back in time!

A slice of Black Forest cake and the text overlay, "80s nostalgia food for a retro dinner date night."

Ah, the 80s.

It’s hard to believe that such a pivotal time in my life was so long ago.

I wore pastel everything, put lace headbands in my hair, and thought the height of coolness was my fingerless gloves.

I listened to Madonna on a tape deck and sat for hours listening to the radio so I could hit record when my favorite song came on.

And the food. Oh the food!

If today is about farm to table then the 80s were about eating things that were the least recognizable as an original food source.

The microwave revolutionized cooking (though my mother refused to buy one because she thought we would become victims of radiation poisoning), making heating up food quick and easy.

Food also started getting more “exotic.”

While times have changed, the recipes remain.

At home date nights are my jam, and making food for such date nights is always an integral part of the evening.
