How cool is THIS??
I found this ancient cookbook at the back of my Hoosier cabinet, and NEITHER of us have the faintest notion where it came from. It's all handwritten, with recipes from a number of different women--each one wrote her recipe on a piece of paper, signed it, and then someone bound them all together with yarn ties. I don't recognize any of the names, either from my home town or my adopted home.
I'm guessing it must have been a church group or women's club, and looks like from the 1920s or 1930s. All the recipes are in pencil or fountain pen...and some look GOOD.
Stand by, we'll be trying a few of them and sharing them with you...a taste of history...
