I inherited a love for cookbooks from my mother. I have a few older cookbooks. This weekend my mother gave me some recipes that my Granny had saved. Granny loved to cook and was a great southern cook. She was born in 1909 and passed away in 2001. I don't remember her using a recipe so this collection of recipes is a bit odd to me.
I have her Better Homes and Gardens 3-ring binder cookbook from 1946. There are also pages from other years she had put in the cookbook and some pages that she glued recipes she had cut out of magazines.
Some are very interesting and some are just gross sounding.
Olive Wreath Mold: crushed pineapple (not ours!), lime jello, american chesse, pimientos, celelry, walnuts, heavy cream and stuff olives.
Casserole with lima beans, cream of mushroom soup and hotdogs. Ewww
I just came across a 1956 version of "Chicken-a-la-king Casserole". Spanish Rice with Tongue?
1951 Quick Chow Mein - canned lunch meat, canned bean sprouts, and some seasoning. Serve over crisp Chow Mein noodles.
