Simply Made Sunday: A New Vintage Cookbook

New to SMS go here!

My husband and I woke up yesterday morning with head colds...stuffy noses, scratchy throats, and headaches. YUCK! I just was not up for cooking with my kiddos. However, I thought I would share the recipe that we had planned to make. It is from Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls , published in 1957. I originally found the link to this cookbook on United Teaching Discoveries.

Go here to view and download the cookbook for FREE. It is a large file, almost 200 pages, but well worth it. So cute! The recipe we had planned to make is on page 41. It is a Pumpkin Face Cake.

I also wanted to share a new page that Taste of Home has added to their Coloring Cookbook for Kids. I originally shared the cookbook here. Here is the new page. It is a fun Halloween recipe.

OK, now it's your turn to share some fun from your kitchen. I can't wait to see what you've done and get some fun and yummy ideas too!
