This review is from: The Household Searchlight Recipe Book (The Household Magazine) (Hardcover)
I found my great grandmother's copy of The Household Searchlight Recipe book when going through some old boxes of books from storage. What a real treasure! It's great fun to just read, some of the recipes are very unusual, but it is a timeless resource for today's cooking as well. The recipes were formulated by the Household Searchlight team and contributed by homemakers that were readers of The Household Magazine in 1931. I may never be brave enough to make Dutch Lunch sandwiches (onion dipped in french dressing on buttered rye, topped with sauerkraut and dusted with paprika) or Creamed Brains, but there are plenty of tried and true basics here and lots of great ideas for more recipes. This one is a Keeper!
