I’m always looking around on the net for unique recipes and books that are within our little historical time bubble. I really shouldn’t say “little” since we really have a large timeline to work in.
I came across this Church Cookbook with nearly 400 recipes contributed by “Many Good Cooks” originally done in 1908. The entire cookbook is scanned, advertisements and all (by honest solicitors, for they wouldn’t have asked terrible people to advertise in their wonderful publications, now would they?). With tasty morsels as rice soup (I don’t believe anyone would eat that), Croutons (I love that you can store them in tin cans), and pressed meat. How can you go wrong with that recipe book?
