Mine isn't in too bad of shape. It's all in one piece. I use it alot.There are alot of great recipes. My mother bought it for me when I first got married 35 years ago. The one I have from my grandmother has the back spine missing but the pages are still intact. The recipes are really something the way they are laid out. I bought one for my dd when she got married 8 yrs. ago.

Thanks kitchenelf, I feel like I always am the only one pestering for recipes. One thing for sure, when I do ask, t hey respond. What a reward! Receiving recipe someone else tested. The real work is done, all I have to do is put it together. Appreciate everyone who gives me the recipes I request. Let's see if you get the same results. I'll be watching!

Could you clue me where they are? If I don't have them in front of me, makes me feel way behind. Thanks for understanding.
