I really love to cook and everything that is incorporated into it no matter what it is such as recipes, utensils, cook books, linens, etc.
In my adventures to support my vintage and antique addiction, I have come across some great kitchen things for the kitchen. I love to stumble upon great vintage recipe books and I feel that the home town recipe book are great. They are just filled with the best recipes from everyone from your next door neighbor to your grandmother (in my case it was my Nanny, she was the best cook in the world……in my opinion).
I will be featuring vintage recipes on my blog and I feel that some of the great ones will come from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Just wait……I know that there are many wonderful recipes from all decades; however my focus will mainly be from these decades. Although I might throw in some newer versions.
As I flip through some of the recipe books I have picked up in my travels there are some interesting hints, information, tips, swaps, and conversions you will ever come across.
Some of the tips and tricks are….
23 Soda Crackers = 1 cup
Recipe calls for 1 cup cake flour, for baking = 7/8 cup all-purpose flour
What does fennel taste good with = soups, fish, sauces, sweet pickles, and breads
This is just a tid bit of all the great things that I have found in these unique recipe books. There are lots more to come so come on back by and see what will be next.
What are some of your vintage/antique kitchen finds and recipes?
