Vintage Recipe Project is home to the largest collection of vintage and old-fashioned recipes online.
Our vintage recipes are documented and the “history of the box” is researched and shared when we are able to.
We have over 100,000 recipe cards and 100s of old cookbooks we are processing from our collection to share with you on our website.
The old recipes are from schools, church cookbooks, published cookbooks, manufacturer booklets, magazine cutouts, and of course our personal favorite… handwritten recipe cards.
Below are the recipes we have published to date for you to search and find your new favorite vintage recipe.
Please note, since we have so many recipes, we have to group them by categories and types.

Good housekeeping had printed a recipe “my dad‘s meatloaf” in the 80s. I would like to know if I could get the copy of the recipe since I lost mine. It had O’Brien potatoes in it. And it was a wonderful recipe.
