Hello, everyone! I'm joining Elizabeth & Bleubeard's T is for Tuesday link party again this week. Last week I was inspired by T-Tuesday participant Mo, who shared pages from an old Betty Crocker cookbook. I realized that I have a similar cook book, and I want to share a bit of it today.
This is Betty Crocker's New Dinner for Two cookbook. Well, it was new in 1964. :) I like it and still use it from time to time. Most of the recipes are quick and simple. That's my favorite kind of recipe!
I checked to see whether there were any tea-related recipes in my cookbook. Though I didn't find and mention of tea, there is a whole page of advice on how to prepare and serve coffee. And the illustration is adorable, don't you think so?
Seeing the recipes in my old cookbook reminded me of this scrapbook page that I've had in my draft file for ages. I'm glad that I'm getting around to sharing it at last. I created this page at a free class put on jointly by my local library and the Minnesota Historical Society. It was a class about documenting cherished family recipes on scrapbook pages. The class was great, with a friendly, knowledgeable teacher. Lots of materials were available for use in class, including that darling cow cut-out, which is reproduced from a vintage Minnesota cookbook. If the library ever offers a similar class, I'll definitely sign up again.
I hope that you've enjoyed this vintage-vibe post today. It's freezing cold here in Minnesota today, so I'll definitely be curling up with a hot cup of tea soon. Happy T Day!
