oooh, what a find! from one cookbook collector to another. All the fifties books can only bring warm memories back for me. All those women in heals, slips, stockings and ironed dresses look like my mother!

Love your blog. This is what I would do more of if I had time...and if I lived back in England!
I have an awesome cookbook that was my mothers and before her, it belonged to my grandmother. It has the best cake recipes.

Vintage Cookbooks are for everyone who has ever wanted to bake something special and turned to a modern cookbook and realized they never seem to have all the ingredients at the same time, there're for history lovers that want to feel connected to the past in a way that's missing in history books, there're for the people that love that musty old book smell and laugh at kindle's, they're for people that feel like we as a society have gone a little too far, a tad off course with life and want to get back to the simple and the real, and they're for the people that want to pay homage to all the grandma's and great aunts that did it best!
