When one of my mom’s friends gave me the The Fannie Farmer Cookbook as a wedding shower gift, I couldn’t have imagined the Internet.
Any recipe you want, at your fingertips.
Hence, thirty years later, what to do with my ratty old cookbooks?
Fannie Farmer, above, is so worn that her cover is long gone. They’re only a few recipes inside that I love. My favorite is Hot Milk Cake.
It’s so easy! I use it for cinnamon cake, the bottom of an English trifle, and strawberry shortcake. Yum!
I’ve made it so many times, the page is spotted with gunk. (I’m not a very neat cook).
This time, I topped the shortcake with Reddi-wip, and served it to Cliff on our wedding china, which, unlike my cookbooks, looks brand new.
But back to my wedding cookbooks
I’ve got four of them, all shower gifts.
I wondered about cutting out favorite recipes and putting them into a single scrapbook. I’ve got about six favorite recipes in each book.
Do I dare?
And what about you?
Will you take your old cookbooks to your grave or are you ready to say farewell?
Speaking of Reddi-wip!
I’ve been a buddy to Reddi-wip long before I became a bride. It’s made with real whipped cream, and one squirt is only fifteen calories.
Reddi-wip invites you to join their Berry Joyful Sweeps. Check it out here.
Now through July 7, 2014, you can share your everyday Reddi-wip® berry-licious moments on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the #BerryJoyfulSweeps hashtag for the chance to win a trip for two to the 2015 Watsonville Strawberry Festival, Reddi-wip coupons, or berry keepers.
