That's interesting. I know a lot of old cookbooks really stress eating economically and using leftovers.

The concept of "Home making" in the 1920s-60s was based on a single-income family, and not surprisingly features lots of ways to save money. Its very illustrative to read today, when many families are having to cope with the same situation and not fairing very well at it. I know from experience that you can raise a family well, if frugally, on a single income if you're very careful with how you spend your money.

I had to add the page to my Stumble Upon. Lovely!

Also- eee! My mom had that Sunbeam cooker when I was a tot, I used to love when she'd cook with it... it seemed so 'world of tomorrow' to me, and it was only the seventies.

My mother has one as well, but I don't recall liking anything that came out of it! Laughing She used to poach fish in it, and while I like fish, I never cared for it cooked that way. The smell seemed to stay in the house for days.

Maybe that's why I only use mine to cook yummy things like that cake, and blueberry pancakes.
