This is a very informative cookbook, with lots of health information and ingredient information not normally in most comprehensive cookbooks. For example, see our “Recipes” section for the helpful Vinegar Primer. Handy sections like Stretching the Soup, Leftover Magic with Chili, Guide to Greens, and Beyond the Basic Bun are on every page.
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.
