I’m still working on helping my mother clear out her basement, and found these treasures among boxes of cookbooks.
The Victory Cookbook, published 1943 – Given free as a Lysol promotion. Recipes that save ration points, and feed the family well without scarce and expensive foods. It’s a nice memento of food rationing on the Home Front in the US during WWII.
The Sun Prize Winners 6th Annual Cook Book, put out by the Vancouver Sun (Vancouver BC Canada, not Vancouver WA, U.S.), published 1938. I mostly wanted to share this for the cover art. I assume to was a special section of the paper, as there is no price on it. Lots of economizing tips listed here too, although Canada would not be at war till the following year.
