Ha! I know what you mean! I have the most ancient junior leauge dessert cookbook from Jackson, Mississippi. Apparently, "Harold used to come in the drugstore so often for a slice of the coconut cake that they eventually named it 'Harold's Coconut Cake'". Somehow, it makes it that much tastier!

I love old recipes too! I'm so glad you got such great towels from the swap - love the cow!!

Yeah Lauren I can't believe you got your swap already. I am so glad you liked it. The recipes are both family ones tried and true and delicious. The only change I make is to cut the oil down in the Fresh Apple Cake recipe. The Chess pie recipe must be at least 65 years old.
I also collect the old church and womens club type cookbooks.
Small world huh!

Chess pie is so good. I'm a little jealous. And I love it when a recipe comes with a story - so much more charming than "I cut this out of a magazine."

I love those old recipes! But I haven`t found that many of them... Do you have any suggestion where I should look? :-)
