Vintage Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook

eBay Scavenger

It's the month of The Hungry Reader, so here's a 1945 vintage copy of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook from eBay - we love the font and typography on these old versions, as well as the recipes. (See all our posts through an old, well-loved Betty Crocker cookbook here, including the previous owner's notes and recipe cards!) This book is currently going for $5.95. Shipping is $5.50 and the auction ends tonight.

Our real inspiration today came however from the terrific Saveur butter issue. Butter molds, dishes, and more curious butter-related items, below...
