First Time Was A Charm!


My Custard Pie was a success..... I know I shouldn't be so excited but I had never made one before so when my husband says "that's the best custard pie I have ever eaten", I swell with pride. I just love to bake for him............my brother in law came to stay with us for the 3 day weekend and he agreed.........the best!!

I love vintage cookbooks and cook booklets....well on a whim I stopped at a little yard sale on Saturday and this gal was selling all of these..........I was soooooo excited.
She had so many cookbooks including this "Danish Food" book. Very interesting.
I want to learn how to decorate cakes............I told my husband I want to take a class at Michael's or Joanne Fabrics.......it's on my list but we will have to wait and see if there is any time in my wife/mom schedule. My priorities are God, My husband, My Children and Me..........that's how my mom and dad raised me and I am proud of those virtues.



Looks like cake decorating was pretty basic even in the 80's when this Wilton magazine was published.
So cute, they illustrate a cake for a morning wedding and one for an afternoon wedding.........
Bisquick was a staple item in our house when I was a kid. I found some "old time favorites" in this book. It was used a lot over the years. Oh if this book could talk it would have so many stories to tell me I am sure.
This book is probably my favorite from the lot.......Its from 1953 and its the Pillsbury Recipe and Baking contest "Prize Winning Recipes". Look at the price wow a quarter! I paid $3.00 for all these treasured books...........I would say it was well worth it.

Hope your 3 day weekend was good. We lazed around the house all day today..........felt sooooo good.

Lots of Love,

Debbie

Yum.I know I would love this. I love anything with custard. Sounds like you had a great weekend. We pretty much did the same with some yardwork thrown in today. We were supposed to paint the kitchen this weekend but with my youngest still getting over how sick she was, we decided no addn. stress. Just took it easy too and took care of her though we did sneak off to dinner last night.

I love the old cookbooks too! I have several of them. Never have made anything from then though :)

I think you should take cake decorating lessons. That was how I started out. I started out with the Wilton classes and then took tons of other classes from some of the top cake decorators that have been on tv. It's fun.

I can't believe you went through freecycle and the lady then said she wanted you to pay. What part of free didn't she understand :)

Hi Debbie,
If you are going to make/decorate cakes, you will need a taste tester and I'm your gal!!!
Old cookbooks are so cool. I have one that was my Grandma's with her writing on some of the recipes.
Warmly,
deb
