Just a plain old binder.....
Chock full of recipes!!!!!!
Some "kindred spirits" book of favorite recipes.....I wish I could have known her.
Lots of recipes carefully cut out of magazines and newspapers and patiently glued on to the pages. I wonder, did she make any of these?
I can imagine her sitting a her kitchen table with her scissors and glue, cutting and pasting, the old time way.
Some of these ads and recipes are just too cute not to share, so here are a few of my favorites:
Yum! I love anything lemon! Look at the plate that piece of cake is on.... drool...
And do you see that the cake is actually in an old ice tray?? This new generation probably has never even seen one of those.
A Flower of a Pie...This is going to be on my table this week, because my cherries are ripe and my family loves cherry pie. Remember to use real whipping cream, not Cool Whip...
The Most Praised Cupcakes.... Pink coconut.... That aqua tablecloth......
Miss Kathleen Boyd, I want that bowl you are stirring in! It's Autumn Leaf by Jewell Tea.
Isn't she darling, such as impish little grin.... milk in a glass bottle....I hope she enjoyed her trip to New York.
How many of you remember the mimeograph? I loved the smell of that purple ink....This recipe came from the Young Homemakers, Sept 1958... Sweet milk.... There was a recent discussion with my friends about was "is" sweet milk. In my family, it means just regular milk, not buttermilk or soured milk. One of my friends said in her families recipes it meant evaporated milk. Hmmmm.... A cake of yeast.... can you still buy yeast in cakes????
lard... I have seen that in the grocery store but I never use it. Wonder if it makes a difference in this recipe????
I am still carefully looking through this binder, reading all the recipes and wondering about the lady who spent so much time putting this together...I hope she knows... I love her book... and will take care of it for another generation...
