What do you think?

I love the new look of the site! To celebrate, I’ll be bringing you a really exciting discovery – a handwritten girl’s trade school cookbook from the 1920s or 30s. It’s in terrible condition but I just couldn’t let it wind up in the trash heap. The book contains written instructions on everything from planning a menu, keeping an orderly refrigerator and how to keep food hygienic to tons of both handwritten and clipped recipes. I’m working on scanning it right now and hope to have something for you next week.

As always, thanks for your support of heirloom and handwritten vintage recipes!

    • Thanks Nancy – it is surprising how coveted these recipes are! Sometimes I find them on ebay, sometimes at antique shops. I have seen the ebay auctions go well over hundreds of dollars.
