"New" Cookbooks & Award

My neighbor, who knows I love to read cookbooks like a novel, gave me a HUGE collection of old cookbooks her aunt had given to her. I am so excited because these books go back starting from the 1950's and on through to the 70's. I am a big fan of Betty Crocker cookbooks and recipes, so I was glad to get three published in the late 60's and early 70's. Another one that I am really looking forward to using is the "Woman's Day Cook Book of Favorite Recipes" published in 1958. I got a booklet full of Smucker's recipes that I really want to try and the one that gave me a good laugh was the "12 Pies Husbands Like Best" published in 1952! This one reminded me of an article we were shown back in middle school that I guess might actually be a fake, but is still fun to read... You can find that article here.

Now I would like to thank Ranji, over at Ranji's Kitchen Corner, for passing along this rockin' award :) I haven't known her long, so it was a nice surprise! Thanks so much, Ranji, for thinking about me!!!



I am passing this award on to Ranjani, Mona, Shubha & Mandira... :)
