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 soda drinks.

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.
