This is a great book and brought back many memories.My grandmother made applesauce cake every Christmas and I really believe that the recipe in this book may be the one she used. I was never fond of fruit cake, but I loved her applesauce cake.

The author's comments before each recipe bring back many memories from the time of each recipe.It adds such fun to each recipe.

We still make the marshmallow fudge at Christmas time. I can't wait to make the macaroni beef and tomato casserole I could taste it as I read the recipe and we don't eat wonderful casseroles like this anymore.

Buy this book now & enjoy these lovely recipes.

What a fun recipe book! I didn't even know you COULD freeze coleslaw until I read this. I'm going to try out the orange-roasted carrots today... and thanks to the snippet of info, I may just listen to some Elvis while I cook. And then have the rum walnut balls for afters. (Carefully counting the calories that are so thoughtfully provided, of course.) I've got another use for this book, though (which I have to admit, is why it caught my eye) - for fiction writers, this is a nice little glimpse into a bygone era.

Reading this book brought back so many memories of those times. Each recipe has a little history of what was going on in the US when people were using the recipe. You might be familiar with many of the recipes, but they offer a new version of how you might have made them - these recipes vary by region in the US. Tuna Popover Casserole - we had plenty of tuna casseroles, but this is new to me. And Banana Pumpkin Pie is certainly worth a try! I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the nice selection in this book.

I've read a lot of Kindle recipe books lately, and this one is superior to most. Why? Recipes are all good AND it's formatted in a way that's super easy for the reader to find a recipe, and follow it.

Sounds simple right? Look around at a few others and you'll realize it's not.

Each recipe is outlined in the Table of Contents and sectioned by type - Main Dishes for example. Chapters are introduced with a Title and photo, which I found very helpful and enjoyable when reading this Kindle cookbook.

On each recipe page you find a recipe title, ingredients, preparation, and (a rarity in Kindle self-published cookbooks...) nutritional information for each recipe (per serving). That last part took this cookbook from a 4 to a 5 star for me! Serving size and a brief author's introduction relating to her family and the era from which the recipe came, added a nice touch to each recipe.

Directions are simple, easy to follow and clearly written. Ingredients are simple, and easy to find at your local market.

Truly, I find this recipe book a delight, and would happily recommend it to others. Well done!

I don't recall some of these and I am not sure they were from that time period. Since I got married in 1970 and did a lot of cooking I thought there would have been some of the favorites I cooked for my children.

There were no recipes that caught my interest and I was around at that time period. I think my Mom from a European background just didn't cook that way. I was't allowed McDonalds until High School when I snuck out with friends. I did like the stories before the recipes more so than the recipes.

This is a simple, fun and comfort filled cookbook to add to your collection.

The thing I enjoyed most about it was the brief story and timeline that the author wrote prior to giving each recipe. If you were born in the late 60's or early 70's you will find yourself smiling when you read read each recipe introduction from remembering that time of your youth.

Many of these recipes were completely new to me. I came from a family that cooked primarily Italian recipes and foods that were handed down from my grandparents when they came over from Italy. However, I was able to find a few recipes that I did grow up eating such as the Walnut Rum Balls, Potato Croquettes and Chicken Pot Pie. I was especially happy to find the Walnut Rum Ball recipe as this is something my mother made every Christmas in our house and I do not have the recipe for it.

I can't imagine anyone that grew up in the era this book spans through that won't enjoy reminiscing while they find a favorite new recipe or an old tried and true one.

The formatting is lovely! The table of contents appears at both the beginning and end. The recipes begin on their own pages, along with a reminiscence of what was going on in the world at the time the author first remembers the dish being served in her home. How clever! I am very pleased to see that nutritional information is included with the recipes - that is kind of a rarity among cookbooks in general, and e-cookbooks in particular. There were just a handful of very well-done photographs - I would have liked to have seen more.

The Freeze & Eat Later Cole Slaw sounds intriguing. The Parmesan Green Beans and the Spinach and Grapefruit Salad sound delicious, as does the recipe for Beef Stew. Judging from the comments the author made, she and I are probably the same age. I found it interesting that many of the recipes were VERY similar to dishes I had growing up. The Norwegian Walnut Bread baked in cans reminded me of a recipe for Beer Bread that my mother baked in a coffee can. And the Tamale Pie is very similar to one that I used to make for my children. Ah, memories!
