Smile Grandmother's mouth words were my first cookbook

I was taught to cook by my grandmother when I was 7 years old. My first dish amazed my family and myself. Ever since, I have been cooking from time to time.

My first real cookbook was a Chinese vegetarian cookbook, which I used to cook dishes for myself, hoping to lose weight. However, it didn't happen.

Nowadays, I have two at hand and my cooking skills are well enough to feed two of us. However, memories are still leading me back to those old days often.

Mine was a Junior League cookbook called "Little Rock Cooks". It is out of print now but I keep looking for another copy, mine is beat up.

There was another one I can't remember the name of. It was a fat orange quality paperback and included techniques in it.

Dennise,
I saw a copy of "Little Rock Cooks" on Amazon. <Dating back to 1972, Little Rock Cooks is a compilation of delightful recipes handed down from generation to generation. This cookbook has stood the test of time and can be found in kitchen cabinets throughout the country. Inducted into the McIlhenny Hall of Fame, an award given for book sales that exceed 100,000 copies.>
ISBN-10: 0960672400
Best regards, Cindy

Wow, thank you. Last time I looked there weren't any and certainly no new ones. I even wrote Little Rock's Junior League once and was told it was out of print.

Happy, happy, joy, joy!

When I was a kid my favorite cookbook was the Charlie Brown Cookbook. My mom would make "Lucy's Lemon Squares" for me. I wish I could find a copy of it because I would love to have one. I also remember coming home from school and I would pull out the Joy of Cooking and make pancakes.

The Joy of Cooking, given to me as a wedding gift in 1975. I dumped the husband, kept the cookbook.

My first experience with cooking came from my grandmother's kitchen(we lived with her). She referred to her "Rumford Complete Cookbook" by Lily Wallace (1908,1919) which I still have(with her notes and clippings from the newspaper) and her copy of "Good Meals and How to Prepare Them" Katherie Fisher, Good Housekeeping Institute (1927) first edition. Her pencil script in the fly leaf "How to make rolls...) On page 194 (a chart of Icings) a note "good but don't beat too long...
I've only used the two of these to make 7 minute frosting and biscuits.
The rest of the time we use Paula's magazine or one of her cook books
