|Hi, I collect vintage recipes from the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's. Naturally you will
find a few recipes from the earlier days, as well as some later recipes from the
1970's. I pretty much draw the line at the 70's.
The collection of recipes and old photos are a "nod" to the older generation. Our
mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles and anyone else who influenced are
lives. I don't think history does justice to the infamous folks who really made the
difference. This small collection of recipes won't change history, but maybe a few will
realize just how important a tradition of "food preparation" is to the heart of a family.
When I was growing up, you ate three meals a day at a table with the other members
of your family. The fact was, if you were a girl, you helped your mother prepare the
meals and sat the table. That means the table had real dishes, silverware and glasses -
not paper plates and plastic cups. Now the boys in our family could help, but the girls
had to be there. Meals were truly a family affair. By the way, paper plates and plastic
cups were for picnics, out doors and looked forward to with great glee.
I recently ran across my first vintage recipe made with 7-UP. I had forgotton, as a
child, all the buss surrounding recipes made with Coke, Pespie, Dr. Pepper or 7-UP.
I have decided to create a page decated to recipes and food stuffs made with these
I find my recipes in old tin boxes purchases at yard sales, flea markets, auctions and
from eBay. I also take recipes from mom's recipe box, my uncles and grandmothers.
I don't scan the internet, I take what I find, as I find it and post the recipes here.
And with that said, here is the first recipe I have found.
