a little treasure

McAlpin1

I found this sweetie on e-bay a few weeks ago, just in time for my birthday. I learnt to cook from my mum’s copy of this little book and used to spend ages poring over the pictures and recipes. I’m going to enjoy baking some tastes from the past.

Update:  Mum says she got this little book in 1955 or 1956 when her home economics class went on a school excursion to the flour mill’s kitchen.
