Thrifting Thursday – Cookery Books

Today I thought I’d share two thrifted books. The book on the left is a cooking-clips book, or a book filled with files for storing recipes you clip out of magazines and newspapers. I love it, but I also wish it came filled with recipes. I loved reading old clippings like that. There are so very strange vintage recipes out there indeed!
The next book Praise for the Cook is a promotional cookbook that was released by Crisco in 1959. It has the best illustrations, and look at that cute little tub of crisco!

    LOVE! Some of my favorite things are my vintage and antique cook books. I’ve also been collecting old (full) recipe boxes. It’s amazing the clippings each woman saved, the ones that are clearly well-used, and the similarity between collections, even from different parts of the country. Everyone seems to have a recipe for Dump Cake. :D
