I love this, too. I'm so glad my daughter told me about you. I wish I could go to your store.

Cool blog. I like vintage cook books and will have to start keeping my eyes open for handwritten recipes. I have my grandmother's recipe notebook from before 1962 but haven't tried any of them yet. Louise

I tried the Chocolate chip cookie recipe. It was good. I want to try the Nerwegian Apple Pie recipe sometime.
