I had some much fun back in October, when I held the first Vintage Recipe Week, I had to do it again!
I like to pretend that I’m standing in my Grammy’s 1950s kitchen, chatting away with her…and getting coffee or tea ready for each of you.
(I’ve reserved one of those fabulous white chairs for you. Coffee or tea?!)
I wonder what we would have been talking about, laughing about, anguishing over. And for years, I wondered what my grandmother used to cook.
But now I know! And now I get to experiment and play with some of her old recipes!
I’ll be sharing a few of the recipes from her 1942 church cookbooks.
Now…what do you think we would have been chatting about in her 1950s kitchen?!
That is exactly what my kitchen looked like prior to our remodel! *shivers*
I can’t wait for you to post some recipes! I love trying old ones and modifying them for my family. We get pretty creative with the picky eaters around here

My favorite recipes come from cookbooks like the Fannie Farmer one that I found at a flea market sale. I have several that are so old they still list monosodium glutamate as a ingredient. One book is from the 1800’s and we used it when studying the founding of the American west. It’s a hoot when the recipe says to let the fire die down to hot coals before beginning cooking. Thank God for electricity and gas stoves!
