RECIPES FROM OLD FAMILY FAVORITES Springdale Bicentennial 1806-2006 is a regional cookbook of favorite recipes from the residents of Springdale, Ohio, as well as  those submitted by employees of its police, fire and local government departments.

The cookbook is filled with delicious sounding recipes that range from Fish Fillets Poached in Wine, Amish Chicken and Corn Soup with Dumplings, Potato n' Broccoli Supreme, Cinnamon Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Baked Praline French Toast Casserole, and even Grandma's Corn Relish--a 12 time winner at the County Fair! The name of the person who submitted is printed below its recipe.

Each chapter begins with a hand-colored drawing by a student at the local elementary school.  The student's name, age and grade is shown with their drawing.

The sequence of the page numbering of this 290-page or so book repeats with every chapter--so there are multiple page 1, 2, 3, etc.  It includes approximately 275+ recipes and measures 8 ½” high by 5 ½” wide.  The comb-bound cookbook is in good condition with no tears or bent corners. There is darkening/browning near the edges of the cover.

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.
