Back in 1986 at my bridal shower my cousin Charlott gave me a cookbook….I used it lots and lots. Some of my most used recipes came from there….pancakes, waffles, baking powder biscuits, french toast, oatmeal cookies, split peas soup and many more. It’s been so used…
It’s been years without a binding.
This is the favorite page..can you tell?? Much of the destruction of this page is courtesy of Kelli..as a kid she cooked lots but she would always keep the recipe book right next to the mixing bowl. Things would splash and spill.
The last time I pulled it out to make pancakes I had decided that I either needed to copy these recipes down or I would soon be regretting it. The pages are truly just slowly rotting wasting away…but did I copy the recipes down…no.
So the very next time I was at the local thrift store, look what I found…. HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!
I gladly paid my $1.50 and took it home with me. By the way, this is what the well used page is suppose to look like. This is an oldie cookbook but surely a goodie.
I am thinking I have 28 more good years of cooking in my yet and I’ll be glad to be taking this cookbook with me.
I just want to say thanks to cousin Charlott for giving me the original as a shower gift. We’ve obviously loved it!!
