We wanted a mid-century bookshelf for our living room, so I built one from scratch.
For week 51 I made baked Alaska from "Woman's World Edition Of The American Woman's Cook Book", edited by Ruth Berolzheimer, published in 1939.
In week 50, I made Christmas candy from the 1959 Cookbook "Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Cook Book" and Angel Adoree's "The Vintage Sweets Book" from 2013.
In week 49 I made appetizers from the 1958 cookbook "Better Homes & Gardens Salad Book" and the 2003 cookbook " Retro Happy Hour".
I made cherry cheesecake from the 1967 book "Betty Crocker's Hostess Cookbook", for week 48.
For week 47, I made German Chocolate/Black Forest cake using a combination of recipes from the 1990 "The Best Recipe Cookbook" and "The Hood Basic Cook Book" from 1949.
For week 46, I tried the recipe for Victory Apple Pie, from "The Victory Binding of the American Woman's Cook Book", edited by Ruth Berolzheimer, from 1942.
I made cream of pumpkin soup and herbed biscuits from "The Fireside Cook Book", by James A. Beard, published in 1949.
Week 44 was Halloween week, so I made Trick or Treat Cookies from "Foodarama Party Book", from 1959.
