I love vintage dishes and kitchenware.

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.

The first line states sugar but we believe this is a mistake when typing the card and the ingredient should be shortening instead.
