Settlement Cook Book, 1951 Edition, compiled by Mrs. Simon Kander, with tested recipes from the Milwaukee Public School Kitchens. Originally published by the Settlement Cook Book Co., Milwaukee, Wis. 623 pp. This is the cookbook with “The way to a man’s heart” at the top of the front cover. Everything from how to build a camp fire and stew rabbits (!) to “Ices, Frappes and Sherbets in Mechanical Refrigerators.” This copy was published in 1951, the thirtieth edition, revised and enlarged from the first edition, published in 1910. The cover of this copy has lots of shelf ear, and the spine cover has been mended with clear librarian’s tape. Inside, this copy is in perfect condition. Even the cake and cookie pages are perfect!

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.
