Grandma's Recipe Book

This weekend was Family Camp Out.  My aunt brought this recipe book that my grandmother had put together over the years.  We figured that she had started it early in her marriage, which would have been 1930, and added to it over the years.  We found one recipe dated 1948 and another 1955.

My grandparents were so poor, that Grandma used her old math book and glued in recipes she had clipped from magazines and the newspaper.  The book was a combination of algebra and recipes.  She created a cover from a piece of oilcloth tablecloth.  

What a treasure!
