The Past

I just had to share these photos with you.  These are very old, very delicate, very precious recipe notepads that were once my grandmother's.  Some of the pages are smeared, some of the pages are even missing, but that's ok.  It's a piece of my families history... and I am thankful that I have them.

And, yes, one of these days I'll break them out of their little protective baggie again and actually make something from them.

Until then... the pictures will just have to suffice :)



One Year Ago:  Grilled Chicken with Queso Sauce
Two Years Ago:  Rosemary & Red Wine Steaks

LOVE it!!! Can't wait to hear about the recipes you try!

I love these!! I have several vintage recipe books in plastic as well. I have been flipping through a few of them this week looking for inspiration. I love older recipes!

We have some of those from the past as well

So cool! I have some of Brian's Grandma's old notebooks and cookbooks, with notes in the margins :) I love them! It's awesome that you have your Grandmother's notes, too.

How wonderful that you have those recipe notebooks, Jenn, and that you appreciate them and take such good care of them! ♥

How awesome is that? I bet there is some really tasty food in those little notebooks.

That is so flipping cool. I have to buy other people's old books and recipe notes at antique stores.And you have your very own! That's awesome.

Think of how lucky we are to be able to find and share so much information (recipes); whereas in her day these notebooks were absolutely essential just to be able to remember how to do it!

Oh, what a treasure, Jenn!

Yenta Mary said...

Oh, how fabulous!!! Neither of my grandmothers left recipes - one left a couple of scribbles about ingredients - so your family treasures are absolutely precious!!!

They look very similar to ones I have from my husband's mother, if still alive would be about 96 years old. I'll have to get them out, it's been awhile since I've browsed through them. Cherish those Jenn.

I'm so jealous - these are a serious treasure and I wish I had something like them. I'm so curious about what recipes might be in them.

This makes me sad because I have ONE recipe from my grandmother like this for my BBQ pork and it has gotten misplaced somewhere in this house. I know I will find it one day but it I hate not knowing where it is.

That is priceless. I would love to have one of my grandmother's cookbooks. She made wedding cakes and was a wonderful cook. You will have to try to make something from them!
