Happy Reading

I love homemaking, cookbooks and simple, old-fashioned living. So I've been really glad to acquire these two books recently - "Mennonite Girls Can Cook" and "The Amish Cook's Anniversary Book." Reading them will be ideal as I stay in from the heat and sit by the AC. I enjoy anything that's encouraging along the lines of being a mom-at-home and food preparation. Now to go get something icy to drink and sit a spell ...

Here are links that show these books:


  1. Oooo...I LOVE cookbooks!!! Especially old ones. I have some from the 40's that I just love. And my very favorites are some of my grandmothers and great-grandmothers. There are handwritten notes in the margins.

  2. Sounds like you've got some fun treasures to enjoy, Becky! :) Especially those handwritten notes would be neat. Mom wrote by the recipes in her cookbooks sometimes, but usually just barely, such as "good" or "do not make this again." LOL!
