My mom found this really old cookbook. It has some interesting recipes in it...
... but what I really love are the handwritten recipes on the back of the pages.
Who wouldn't want to try a Rolly Polly, Fat Cake or Sugar Pie?!
That recipe for Fat Cakes has only one teaspoon of flour, and 5 eggs! How does that even make cake?
jackpot! I love when people donate books to the library and we find old recipe books! the bad thing is having to draw straws with coworkers to see who gets it :)
I love old cookbooks. My Mum has one with really vague directions like, "bake in a hot oven" and "make a fritter batter". I guess housewives of yesteryear knew how to do this stuff without extraneous instructions. Me, I need details.
