Re: Share Some Odd or Obscure Cookbooks You Have

I have my grandmother's 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook and my 1970 of the same book (my basic go to).

 

I have many church cook books, some from the book store  and of course the treasured Chelsea's Tea Room cookbook with the super yummy pasta salad!  I have met SO many friends there for lunch when I taught.  Also, I was the owner's flower girl in her wedding.Smiley Happy

Re: Share Some Odd or Obscure Cookbooks You Have

The oldest cookbook that I have, has to be close to a hundred years old now.

 

It's original and not a reproduction.

 

It was written as a promotional item that came with an old electric refrigerator. Smiley Happy

Is there any way you could let us know the pasta salad recipe? It's a favorite food for me and I'd love a great recipe of it.  If not, it's ok. @ECBG

Re: Share Some Odd or Obscure Cookbooks You Have

I have the QVC Mr Food book, too.  Just pulled it out last week.  In the past have made Baked Ziti, French Toast Loaf ( it was good but more like bread pudding ), Pat James Mother's Apple Cake, Potato Chip Cookies, just to name a few.  Enjoyed them all.  Nice trip down memory lane.
