Festival Find......50's Recipe Book

Last Saturday at a festival I found a 1950's era recipe book and it was HAND MADE!
It was made from a spiral notebook that had math problems underneath the recipes.I am thinking possibily a school project for a family science course. Most of the notebook consists newspaper cutouts, but also some magazine cutouts. The maker of this recipe book took the time to organize the recipes by theme: apple, prune, pudding, etc. It is mostly desserts, but also has some complete meal recipes. Here is a peak:

Newpaper Cutouts

Magazine Cutouts

The person took the time to add stickers and magazine clippings to decorate the book.

Sharing cook secrets

A five dollar treasure! Soon I will be picking out some retro recipes and sharing them with you!


It may seem that I have forgotten my blog, but that is completely untrue. I have been busy with the house, Sophie and enjoying the last few days of summer left here in the midwest.

I have also been experimenting with a schedule. Trying to come up with ways for us to stay busy and not moping around the house. I also try to spend some time reading other blogs to find themes for each day to help lead some posts.

There is much more to come!
