Look at these wonderful cookbooks!!! I learned to cook by using a Campbells soup cookbook. They are very instructional and have tasty recipes. This book is from 1976. I also found these fund raiser cookbooks from the First Methodist Church, in Fort Madison, Iowa in 1961. This is a super cool book. It has everything in it! Of course it has recipes but it also has a health section, a gardening section and many others that you don't normally see in a cookbook. I really enjoyed reading it.
