Favorite of the Week - 1920s Cookbook Full of Handwritten Recipes and Old Food Clippings

This is such a wonderful vintage cooking find. It is an old book called Good Meals and How to Prepare Them, and research indicates that it was published in the 1920's. The spine of the book is delicate, and the cover is worn loose -- but the book is full of old handwritten family recipes and recipes clipped from old magazines and newspapers. Most of the recipes tucked into the cookbook seem to date from the 1920's to the 1950's. What a treasure for anyone interested in food history or vintage recipes!

Sold on eBay - $9.99 - to a collector of vintage food history.
