Vintage Cookbook Giveaway

Hey y'all!  I was cleaning out my cookbook cabinet, and I'm a lucky gal to have so many tomes... but I found a pair of vintage cookbooks (circa 1950 and 1970) that deserve a better home, because I just don't use them.  So I decided... why not have another fun giveaway?

These books are in beautiful condition, and the Charleston Receipts book actually has some handwritten recipes inside the front pages!  Are you ready to get cooking?

To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter Widget and leave a comment below about your favorite cookbook.  You can also earn multiple entries.

  8. I LOVE this! My favorite cookbook is my mom's copy Fanny Farmer. It's falling apart -- like, the boards aren't really attached anymore - but I turn to the page with white sauce, and her hand, at least once a month.

  9. Actually my favorite cookbook are actually what I found in a cookbook, my Grandmom's handwritten recipes for various delicious old fashion style dinners and desserts. The paper is brown so they are in a protective sleeve, but the recipes are still golden.

  16. My cousins and I are in the process of scanning the recipe cards our Grandma left behind to have them printed in a family cookbook. There are so many of us, it seems the best way to ensure her legacy as a great cook continues.


    Here's an image of her Dilly Dip recipe. I miss her so much when I see her handwriting.

  17. LOL! My Mom isn't my go-to cooking advice person, for that I go to my friend Jen. She can bow-hunt her own deer, butcher it, and make venison stew from scratch. She even makes her own breads. I love her.
