Compiled by Rae Katherine Eighmey
Minnesota Historical Society Press (January 1, 2007)
In this guide are treasured family recipes and helpful hints on cooking the way your grandmother's mother taught her.
Drawn from the long-running Wallaces’ Farmer magazine, this cookbook and advice manual shows how creative home cooks fed the soul and spirit of America’s heartland from the 1890s to the beginning of World War II. In this guide, surprisingly useful to cooks today, are treasured family recipes and helpful hints on cooking the way your grandmother’s mother taught her. Along with these classic dishes are long-forgotten tips on the “domestic arts”—like how to substitute for a missing ingredient or how to stop your party-line neighbor from “Eavesdropping over the Telephone.”
