I love those old recipes. Sometimes our contemporary tastes are so different from these -- like bacon on top of the apple rings! Makes my heart shudder! Love all the citrus recipes, too. Especially in the winter, we welcome the fresh, clean tastes of citrus.

Wow, Tina, that 1934 cookbook is older than me! Delicious sounding recipes, but the one that really caught my eye is Buttermilk Icecream. Hmm, I wonder how that would really turn out and taste? Maybe I should try it sometimes. Thank you for the nice recipes from the old cookbook. Hope you are having a good November so far. I'll have to check out your country magazine.
