Vintage is all the rage right now. Whether vintage to you means the 90s or the 60s, bringing back what was once old is in.
From butterfly clips and bell bottom pants to your grandma’s Pyrex and bake ware, vintage is here to stay.
But what about vintage recipes? You know, the ones found in the church cookbooks that someone’s great aunt or grandma made.
What about those cookies, cakes and pies that bring a sense of nostalgia?
I’m bringing those back. And, I’m going to document it all with video and blog posts.
I love to read old recipes. Cookies, cakes, pies … you name it. I read them not only to see if I’m interested in baking it – or tweaking it to sell in my home-based bakery, but also for fun.
I have quite a few old cookbooks already – ones from church groups, ones found at antique shops and old recipes passed down from my great-grandma and grandma. I’ll be pulling from those and from the books my mother-in-law, who also likes to bake and cook, has in her library and from friends who have volunteered their old books.
Those old family recipes shared in simple books are stories. Stories that tell not only of the time in which they were created, but of the place they were created and of the people enjoying them.
So, in addition to baking and blogging, I’ll be researching to find the origin of those recipes to honor them and tell the story. Of course, you’ll get to see the book where I found the recipes – and get the recipe itself as well.
I hope to post one video/blog post per week as I make my way through vintage recipes. And I’d love to hear from you and share some of your old family recipes and the stories behind them. You can share them with me via email at email@example.com. You can send pictures of the recipe and then tell me of the memories you have with that recipe.
