2.0 out of 5 stars Recipes are ok but directions are poor November 12, 2013

The title above pretty much says it all. The book is not well formatted so recipes fall onto the next page. The directions all say the same thing, mix ingredients and bake. Anyone with even the most basic of cooking and baking knowledge knows that how ingredients are combined is extremely important. The canning directions are dangerously vague. I do not recommend this book at all

You will find plenty of old-fashioned recipes, and a few unique recipes, in the Vintage Recipes from Decades Past by authors Nancy Cottington and Amanda Crenshaw. I've never seen a carrot cake recipe like the one found in their cookbook. Their carrot cake recipes does not use the traditional cream cheese frosting but an orange juice and coconut topping instead. Sadly, their canning recipes lack updated USDA recommended canning information as the recipes state to seal the jars. It would have been helpful to know how to seal the jars safely using USDA canning methods.

Some of the recipes you will find in their cookbook include:

Milk shake (uses a raw egg and this is not considered food safe by today's cooking standards)
Sherbet party punch
Irma's rolls
Cabbage salad
Easy fruit salad
Homemade noodles
Jiffy tuna dinner
Chicken and dumplings
Spam spread
Crisp oven chicken
Gingerbread cupcakes
Fudge squares
Vanilla cookies
Pear relish
Krispy lunch pickles

Recommend with caveats given.
