Cookin' it Old School

Cookin' it Old School. Literally. I love old cookbooks that have kitsch value. Here's a cookbook from my childhood. My former elementary school asked the parents to contribute recipes for a fundraiser cookbook. Here are the results.

Great cover: "Kissin' wears out...Cookin don't!" ("Cookin" didn't get the little apostrophe at the end, for some reason.) It looks like people have always been droppin' g's.

If you're looking for a recipe for "Spud Nut Donuts", wait no more! The "nut" must be from nutmeg? Don't forget to fry in deep fat.

Hi Micaela - Love your blog and I was totally laughing at this post - I remember those good old Roosevelt cookbooks! My sister and I were going through my mom's old stuff and found a couple different ones! So fun to look at! :) Ann

These are classic...It's so cool that your mom kept her collection. They are fun to look at! I don't think I've ever made anything from this book (maybe just 1 or 2), but I love to read the recipes.
