Somehow or other, I ended up with most of my mom's vintage cookbooks, and my grandparents cookbooks! And my grandparents had over 50 grandchildren.....

Hummmmmmm, Do you think anyone noticed?

My mom passed down a Dr. Chase's Receipts from 1879-something, and a Godey's Ladies Book from 1890-something. Both have really interesting recipes in them, but probably not ones most of us would want to follow today.

I've been checking Thrift Stores for old copies of BH&G New Cook book. Not much luck but I did find a 1981 edition last year.

LOL!


I have two, but only one was handed down. I have my maternal grandmothers' BH&G 1965 version. On eBay I saw a 1913 Church cookbook from the Oskaloosa Iowa Friends Meeting and I knew I had at least 8 relatives who belonged at that time. Had to go to $53., but I got it. My paternal great grandmother has a recipe for veal loaf calling for 7 pounds of meat, and my great great grandmother submitted a recipe for mackerel. As June said, most recipes are not tempting. But I would not trade this cookbook for anything. It has many ads from local businesses, including a smokeless hot water heater that would have kept you warm that cold winter of 1911-12

I have a cookbook that was passed down to me from my first husband's grandmother. It is The New Delineator Cookbook. I think the New Delineator was a magazine. A couple of pages are now missing from the front of the book but if I remember right the cookbook was published in 1939. Or maybe it was 1929. Anyway, one of the recipes in the book calls for 5 cents worth of macaroni. What is that today, about a half cup? Well, I get a kick out of it.

Depending on the other ingredients, I bet it was a pound of macaroni. I love the "measurements" in old cookbooks and recipes.
