Historical Cooking Books: Willy Lou’s house book; a collection of proved recipes, hints and suggestions for practical cooking, housekeeping and housewifery by Charlotte Amelia Cheesebro Hough, (1913) – 12 in a series

August 26th, 2018

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas

INTRODUCTION

To My Readers:

I have tried all the recipes and the suggestions given in this book. Some of them I originated, many came from friends, a few from cooks whom I have employed. It was my wish to make a practical little book for housekeepers, because when I was a young housekeeper, just beginning, I would have been glad to have such an aid in doing things that now seem easy and simple. Nor does any housekeeper ever learn it all. If my book shall prove a sort of exchange of housekeeping wisdom, I hope you will call me your friend.

WILLY LOU.
