My grandmother gave me this cookbook when the Dude and I got married nearly 17 years ago. The title is, The American Woman's Cookbook and it was printed in 1943. Not only is it full of recipes and fun vintage food photography, but it also holds old Penny Saver ads, newspaper clippings, and unused coupons my grandmother had saved within the pages. Most importantly, it holds incredible handwritten recipes shared on index cards that my grandmother and her sisters used to mail to each other across Brooklyn. It is literally a time capsule of the Agoglia sisters and their years as young wives and mothers. I have never made a single recipe from this book, it would be fun to try. Some of them are super dated and kind of hilarious. Lots of jello and casseroles. And probably the most perfect roast chicken. Yum.
