How to find old recipes from the 40's, 50's and the 60's.

There were recipes that were made from only things that they had on hand. I really miss reading those recipes and I made some of them. We sat down has a family at my grandparents home and my grandmother made these and they are really worth while in having them. Thank you.

    Hi Doc
    My 1st thought was to use Google. So, I got on my computer and Googled - recipes from the 60's, like magic the links are endless- same for 40's and 50's. Happy recipe hunting!!

    Look on youtube. Recession and frugal cooking. Lots of recipes
    and demos. One of my favorite is Phyllis Stokes. Extensive selection
    of recipes and useful knowledge.

    Check out antique stores or garage sales. For the old betty Crocker or even church lady cookbooks. ! They have gotten fairly plentiful the last several years as that generation is downsizing.

    You look in a cookbook in a used bookstore; old fashioned, but it works.

    Have you tried haunting thrift stores? I got some of those old cookbooks, when I was caring for a gentleman who like to eat like that, and I had forgotten some of the recipes. Re-learned them.

    When I need an old time recipe I just go on youtube or pinterest and type in just what i'm looking for and I generally find what I'm looking for.
