Cooking Vintage: Newspaper Clippings

Pin it button big

In our vintage 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook there are quite a few newspaper clippings, left there by the original owner. They range from recipes for macaroni and cheese to a very tempting lemon meringue pie.

It got us wondering - do you clip recipes? Do you cut them out of magazines and newspapers, or do you stick mostly to cookbooks and recipes online? Will your favorite cookbooks hold yellowed scraps of newspaper for someone to find twenty years from now?
