Since last week I found my older cookbook. This is from Better Homes & Gardens, and goes back to 1941, this one being printed in 1946. The pages are very brown and brittle on the edges, but I like the format of the book. It is separated by tabbed sections, then the recipes are in paragraph style. Here's a page from the pie section. I think I really prefer the recipes in this format, although I haven't figured out what order they're in - it's not alphabetical.
Although this was not from my family, there are great treasures written within the book. For instance, there's a tip to use 2 Tbsp of lemon juice for 1 qt of canned tomatoes in place of salt.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
