This week, I want to share a cookbook I found at an estate sale a few weeks ago. I love vintage cookbooks. This one was nestled among lots of old books, none being cookbooks, so I was really excited to spot this one....I had to have it.....for more than one reason....
The title alone intrigued me, look at the cute little cover. The front cover has come detached from the book, I plan to try and find someplace locally that can rebind the cover to the book. I really love this little cookbook. But to me, the magic was when I opened up the book......
This is the inscription inside the front cover of the book. Harvey, you made my heart melt a bit at reading the sweet words written for your wife long ago. I CAN NOT imagine the family would not have kept this....but it has a wonderful home in my kitchen, and I love this book......
The newspaper clippings were there when I purchased it, I am sure holding the place of wonderful recipes that were either tried out or waiting to test, of course, I looked at all of these pages first thing....
There were two full pages for ice cream toppings......so sweet were the pages....
Now, here is a recipe for the upcoming holidays. It is so interesting to me to read the ingredients on recipes printed long ago compared to recipes in a more modern book.
Here is a good one...Parker House Rolls.....YUMMY!
There is even a whole section dedicated to feeding the baby..... Please notice every infant should receive Cod Liver oil..... well, I missed that part when my two were infants...maybe that is what is wrong with them today.....joking of course....they are great and survived my lack of mothering skills.......only the strong survive, I tell ya'.
I especially thought this was interesting and really pretty informative...I usually try and guess, but here the work is done for you.....no problems now knowing how much to serve if you are cooking for 40 people!
Yes, I have a thing for vintage cookbooks, and this one is really a new favorite of mine....I am just beginning to discover all the wonderful recipes inside the books covers.
Have a great week everyone.....
