Pillsbury Kitchens’ Family Cookbook, 1979: Pillsbury Kitchens’ Family Cookbook, published in 1979 by The Pillsbury Company, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hard cover, 640 pp. A comprehensive cookbook that features the “Nutri-Coded System.” The Nutri-Code informs the cook of the amount of calories, carbohydrates, fat, sodium and potassium in each recipe. It also tells the vitamins and minerals provided. A revolutionary concept! Plus tons of good recipes, like your grandmother’s pot roast and your mother’s apple pie! Not to mention the chocolate chip cookies you made as a child! Hard cover, not a binder. First edition. Pages are all clean and clear, and uniformly a bit tanned around the edges. Cover and binding are in great shape. Definitely gift quality!

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.
