Community Cookbooks

I love community cookbooks!  They are so much fun, as they give a sense of the time and the place that they came from.  These are usually paperback cookbooks, many with spiral binding, collected by members of a church, PTA, school, or community.   The recipes always have the contributing member's name, and sometimes have a story about the recipe as well.   The older ones that I have in my store date from the 1960's to 1970's, all the way to the present.   You'll find many to browse through at Birdhouse Books (community cookbooks).
