That was odd...

Right. So, in looking for a cookbook here that contains a recipe for carrot cake, I discovered that we have a copy of The Joy of Cooking, 1943 edition. Unfortunately, does not contain carrot cake. However, it does contain many recipes that I am more than willing to try, and since it has several chapters on how to deal with Meatless and Sweetless days. Yay Rationing!

But yeah, as soon as I found it, I basically went into a half-hour long gush-fest about how awesome a discovery this book is. If you didn't know, I absolutely adore things written and published in the years between 1920 and 1950. While I tend towards Sci-Fi of that era, I am happy with basically anything. It was such an amazing age, and the fact that I am learning to cook with recipes from that era makes me squee with joy.

Sadly, this edition does not contain any recipes for carrot cake, so I get to keep looking.
  • That sounds like a wonderful find!! :) I hope you get a chance to try out some of those recipes soon.
