I bake my own. I have a recipe I can post up if you're interested.

It last about three days, but you can cut the recipe in half and do it every third day.

I do it because fresh bread is great, but the store bought has to many preservatives.

Well, I cut a thick slice this morning and had the recommended french toast. Sure was tasty, but made my workout a killer!

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the home made bread. Enjoy life, you never know when the rides gonna stop.

These recipes and household hints are taken from my collection of vintage & antique newspapers dating back to the 1700's.

Not too long ago, newspapers were one of the only ready sources of fresh cooking inspiration for most homemakers. While nearly every homemaker probably had a treasured cookbook or two, folks couldn't just search Yahoo or click over to Amazon.com's Cookbooks whenever they needed a new idea!

I've tried to include a broad selection of dishes in order to give you a feel for what sorts of foods were likely to be on our ancestors' dinner tables. Admittedly, some are more appealing than others!

When using these recipes, keep in mind that the sometimes limited instructions tell us that the cook was already supposed to know the basics. For example, there might be no more directions to baking a Dried Apple Cake after you've assembled the batter, because it's assumed that you, the woman of 1914 at whom the recipe is aimed, already know how hot to keep your oven when baking a cake!

At this time, the recipes are in the order of their addition to this website, but will eventually be categorized.

If you enjoy these recipes, you might want to check out some of the books we've selected in Heritage Cooking, or perhaps treat your Inner Chef to a kitchen gift! Your purchases make this website possible - thanks
!


I had completely forgotten this one.......my mom used "leftover" mashed potatoes for this recipe.....
Fried Potatoes

Steak and baked potatoes.

Seared the heck out of it. Smoke filled the house. Wife complained. It was good though.
