Please forgive me if this sounds a little cheesy, as this is my first post. I wanted to let everyone know that I have added about 70 recipe booklets/magazines to the database and scanned the covers in for reference. I don't know if anyone else collects these endstand recipe books but I'm seriously addicted to them and probably have another 70 yet to add. This site has really helped me get them all organized! Anyways.... I would love to hear from anyone who has suggestions for adding to my collection. And if you're interested, feel free to drop by and take a look at my collection. :)

I have a fairly decent set of vintage recipe booklets in my library. I've tagged all of my cookbooks generally the same. If you search for cookbook you can't go wrong. My booklets date as far back as the '20s, with a lot of them in the '50s and '60s. Many of them are from different food manufacturers, such as Kraft or Teem.

I guess this topic won't be dormant now....

I also collect recipe booklets along with cookbooks. If you want to see mine, they are tagged as either old recipe booklets (most) or general recipe booklets. I just love them and am finding them more interesting than most cookbooks. They also take up less space--a definite plus!

I have some old ones from my mother and aunts.
