  1. I always think older cook books look more homely and appetising than the ones these days :-)

    Have a cooktastic week :-)

  6. Is it bad that I have yet to own one cookbook? I guess in the technological age, there really isn't the need for one. When I was younger, I remember reading the cookbooks that belonged to my mom. Hmm, thanks for giving me something to think about.

  8. It's interesting to see how they change . . . and how they don't change.
