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.

At, we’re great fans of M.F.K. Fisher, or Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher. Such great fans, in fact, that we’re opening a new category here, just for M.F.K. Fisher’s work. We’re going to try to keep it stocked with first editions of her culinary writings.

And don’t forget to click on “Recipes” at the top of the Homepage. You’ll find one great recipe from many of the great antique cookbooks and bar books.
