Inglenook Cook Book, 1901, 1970 edition.  Choice Recipes Contributed by Sister of the Brethren Church, Subscribers and Friends of the Inglenook Magazine.  One of the best-known of the church cookbooks!  First published in 1901.  It was revised and enlarged in 1911.  This copy is from the first printing of the 1970 reprint of the 1911 edition.  Published in Elgin, Ill., by the Brethren Publishing House, the original publisher.  Includes recipes such as “Real Marshmallows.”  Hard cover, 212 pages.  This first printing is notable because of the colors used on the linen-covered boards.  Later editions are just black on white.  This particular copy is PERFECT.  As-if-new condition.  Definitely gift quality!

At 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.
