Settlement cookbook history finds

My husband has a copy of 1935 or 37 Settlement Cookbook, as he does like to cook somethings his mother cooked from this book. He is always looking in bookstores for these. When I discovered the 1903 edition, I ordered the paperback and hard cover of 1903. He is gifting these to his 2 sisters. They were both very nicely covered, the paperback looks old fashioned and I like it the best. The hard back is very nicely presented also. The recipes are simple and show us some of the things we have forgotten to try now. One thing my husband cooks well is Floating Island, YUM> <br />Thank you for carrying these options on your internet. <br />I will be looking for my Mother-in Laws cook book soon. <br />Jane Osborne

Excellent "basic" cookbook

I received this book as a gift about 15 years ago & it is by far my most often used. It was originally copyrighted in 1901 & has been revised many times, however many of the recipes still appear as they did then. Recipes range from the very simple (scrambled eggs or grilled cheese sandwiches) to exotic (Fondue Bourguignonne). It will take you from breakfast to an after dinner cordial - all from scratch. Recipes are easy to follow. Basic equivalents (i.e.2.20 pounds = 1 kilo) & substitutions make converting any recipe easy. And it contains much more than just recipes. There are menu planning ideas, freezing, canning & dehydrating charts, special diet recipes, & even a stain removal guide! This is a great book for the beginning cook or someone that needs a bit of everything all in one place.
