Good Housekeeping Cook Book, 1942, 1944. Very difficult-to-find copy of the 1942, 1944 seventh edition of The Good Housekeeping Cook Book. Published by Stamford House, New York. Hard cover, 981 pages. The inside hinges have been reinforced with clear librarian’s tape. I don’t know how the hinges got so worn, though, because the pages are all completely clear. Binding and cover are in excellent vintage condition condition. I don’t think this cookbook was never actually used.

At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
