More Cooking Booklets

 My last antique excursion found me walking out with two more cookbook pamphlets! I don't know why I am addicted to them, perhaps because they are so much more colorful than cookbooks from the same era. 
Some day you are going to see me listed in the Guineas Book of World Records for the largest collection......
First up we have the Hershey's cookbook copyright 1940. I love the glimpse we get of a "modern" kitchen!
 All the basic chocolaty goodness.
 Sour Cream Cocoa Cookies caught my eye. Looks very interesting. I will let you know when I get around to trying them!

Love their slogan! I have a reprint of this cookbook from the 1970s. Most of the recipes look the same. But how can you go wrong with a bit of chocolate!

 I found this one very interesting. What caught my eye was the colorful illustrations inside.
 I love to read recipes for sandwiches. They were so inventive then! Though some do not sound good at all. 

"Avoid Spongy, Tasteless Bread - Buy Bond Bread!" 


  1. I'm right there with you. I love them, too.

  2. I loooove the old recipe booklets too! And I have tried to figure out just why... I think it's because they have taken such care to make them appealing and the language is quaint and ....? I'm glad you shared because I love seeing them.

  3. Love the (lying) slogan on the last one? Lol aren't those fun booklets! Good thing I don't have any addictions to books. Ha!!!!

  4. How many booklets do you have? I have bunches also. I keep thinking I should sell some of the duplicates but can't part with them either, so far. I so enjoy seeing the ones others collect. The recipes are almost always the best. Do you happen to have the booklet on eggless cakes? I've been looking for that one for years. Have only read about it. Hugs! Dru
