Vintage Kitchen Tools and Dishes

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy

Billie, there are all kinds of ways to make dumplings. Some people in the South make flat dumplings (sometimes called slicks, I think), but my family (both the Southern and the English sides) made fluffy dumplings. I use butter in mine because I don't use shortening for anything. I've re-created a lot of family recipes that were never written down -- for other people as well. Such fun! This is a wonderful project you have going!
