Compiled as a cookbook of best-loved family recipes, FROM WILMA'S KITCHEN was authored by Wilma M. Linville of Greensburg, Indiana. Published in 1979, the 445-page cookbook contains well over 500 delicious and simple recipes* organized in eight sections:

  1. Appetizers, Pickles & Relishes
  2. Soups & Salads
  3. Vegetables
  4. Main Dishes
  5. Cakes, Cookies & Desserts
  6. Breads, Rolls & Pastry
  7. Beverages & Miscellaneous
  8. Candy, Jelly & Preserves

The comb-bound book is in near mint condition, measures 8 ½” by 5 ½” and is a copy from the book's second printing in 1985. It no longer in print and extremely difficult to find. 

A must-have addition to your culinary library, this cookbook is an example of a community cookbook. Frequently published by a group of women as a fundraiser, these treasured cookbooks allow us to gain a unique insight into American culture, social norms, and the collective history during an era. Through the recipes, kitchen equipment used, household hints and headnotes, the reader is provided a valuable snapshot of historical details that might not be documented elsewhere. As a result, these cookbooks have become unofficial records of the past, often valued by collectors and culinary scholars more for their historical relevance, than the recipes inside.

We ask that when making your purchasing decision that you consider the photos as part of the item's description.

We do our best to provide you within the written description as much information, whether it’s the history, manufacturer, or condition, for each item we sell. 

We also recognize that a “picture is worth a thousand words” and ask that you view the photos we provide closely. Often, a photo can be more effective than a written description when determining if an item will meet your needs and satisfaction. 

If you need additional information on this or any item, please do not hesitate to reach out.
