RECIPES FROM OLD FAMILY FAVORITES | Springdale Bicentennial 1806 - 2006
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.
It is a great example of a "community cookbook,' which were often published for women by women; however this cookbook includes several recipes submitted by men. These cookbooks provide unexpected insights into aspects of American culture and public history at a given time in history. They give the reader a snapshot of historical details not documented elsewhere and have become unofficial records of the past. For some cookbook collectors and culinary scholars, their historical value far outweighs the recipes inside.
Most community cookbooks were charity or community fundraisers. This book was created as a fundraiser by the Springdale Senior Citizen's Club to support the city's bicentennial.
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.
