Mama’s in the KitchenRegular price $13.79
Weird and Wonderful Home Cooking 1900-1950. Here are the stories and recipes of mothers and grandmothers as they cooked their way through two world wars, food shortages, and the Great Depression. This cookbook chronicles how household gadgets dramatically changed the lives of women forever. It takes you into the kitchens of young housewives who whipped up cherry chiffon pies and other goodies. Lured by glossy product advertisements, these women were seduced into thinking that a green wiggly dessert would add glamour and romance to their lives. The book takes both a serious and humorous look at women in a changing world. Author: Barbara Swell; Native Ground Books; softcover 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; 72 pages.
