Grandmothers Cook Book

Ok.....this is the best cookbook ever and it is an oldie. Both my grandmothers(old world...and new) use this book. I had three of them amd I gave one to my daughter when she got married. Check it out. The American Womans Cookbook. I still use it today. Itsy Cooking Bible and it speaks the truth.

The best ones are the old ones. I like the detail of Fannie Farmers. These cookbooks are the best. The best recipes and tecniques came from these old days. I am a huge fan of these books.

I inherited a copy of the second printing (1938), of the original printing (1931), Household Searchlight cookbook. There are some interesting recipes in there.

the only cookbook my wife and i use, save a few recent ones for specific recipes, is the fanny farmer one. taught us a lot about the basics of cooking. it's missing so many pages now (makes cooking some recipes really interesting; talk about fusion food), so i think i'll buy her a new one for christmas.
