Vintage Cookbooks

I have a deep for vintage cookbooks. I found this one at a garage sale for $1.00! These are my favorite. The ones that are really loved, stained, and with tons of notes and stuff inside. It's from 1941 and it had a newspaper page, perfectly preserved inside, from 1958. My husband and I looked at it for like thirty minutes straight. We love stuff like this! Do you collect vintage cookbooks? If so, what have you found in them?
I also have a collection of McCalls that were my grandmothers and I love reading all her little notes inside and knowing which ones were her favorites by the stains and wear on the pages. It's the neatest feeling knowing that I am cooking for my husband and daughter (her great granddaughter) what she cooked for my daddy.
It's priceless.


  1. I love vintage cookbooks too. I've been known to hit up the used bookstores and garage sales too.

  2. What a great find.Sometimes you can find them at second hand stores. I have some of my grandmothers old crochet patterns.

  3. Me too. I am so in love with them

  4. LOVE this!!! I'm with ya! I just got an idea from Real Simple magazine to frame old hand-written recipes from loved ones. We had each of our grandmothers write out our favorite recipes that they make in their own handwriting and have them framed in the fun!
