If you loved growing up in the 60's and 70's, then you will love this book!  I will
give you some sample recipes as a way of enticing you to by the book.  Once the
book has been purchased, all information regarding the book will be removed from
the site, there is no plagiarizing intended.

The book starts with, "This is in essence your book--or, to put it more accurately,
the cookbook you would have undoubtedly compiled if only you had time for the
project.  For here are the recipes you meant to save from that jar, can or box top,
recipes you and your friends have asked for, a good number your mother's
generation requested and even a few of your grandmother's choices.  Recipes you
meant to save, but didn't, those from magazine ads you may have torn out
intending to file away someday, but that someday never came.........
The following are sections in the book with a few recipes thrown in as a means of tempting
you to purchase the book.  Once the book is sold, the recipes will be gone.
See what we were eating way back then...............

Quick Coffee Bread - From the Rumford Common Sense Cook Book
1/4 cup shortening
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg well-beaten
2/3 cup halved seeded raisins (I added about 1/2 cup nuts)
2 1/2 cups flour (Unless otherwise stated the flour needs to be shifted before measuring.
Then below you will see, it is shifted again with the salt and baking powder.  Otherwise
the coffee bread will taste like flour.)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk

Mix an additional 2 tablespoons sugar and 2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a side bowl.

Cream the shortening and sugar; add the well-beaten egg, then the raisins, next the
flour, salt and baking powder sifted together, alternately with the milk.  Mix to a light soft
dough, turn into a shallow well-greased baking pan, brush over the top with a little
melted shortening and sprinkle with the additional sugar and cinnamon.  Bake in a
moderately hot oven for 375 degrees F. About twenty minutes.

(My notes:
Make sure oven is preheated.   Also, when I made this recipe, I used a
confection oven purchased at Walmart
, so you can make this in a small kitchen, even if
you do not have an oven.)

Results - Thick, heavy, coffee cake - we really liked it.
