    I love this book and cook out of it continuously. The recipes are interesting and good. It could use a bit better index though.

    Very appealing and very simple recipes. Beautiful food photography. And, being a big fan of The Food Flirts, I can just hear Sheila and Marily Brass's voices, telling us how to bake these recipes. Very appealing and very simple recipes. Beautiful food photography.

    I love this cookbook which I found in a used bookstore in Harrisburg. The Brass Sisters make comfort food an art; just reading the recipes makes me want to light a fire in the fireplace and bake wonderful delights for my family.

    I love this cookbook! Not only does it include recipes gleaned from digging through old cookbooks and handwritten recipes from the past 100 years, but it features a good mix of traditional and unusual recipes. I've baked many of these and I've enjoyed almost all of them enough to make them a second time. There is a great introduction that details different baking methods and features antique baking tools. Not every recipe has a photo but most of them are straightforward enough that you don't nee I love this cookbook!

In addition to the recipes there is a nice index and several pages in the back to include your own recipes.

    Once again, I spend as much time reading the cookbook as perusing the recipes. I've put this on my wish list for buying when I find a good sale. Interesting where the recipes come from and to see the notes about the reason they were served. Not crazy about how the chapters are divided but does lead to some fun leafing through the book. Beware of some less familiar terms: bitter chocolate = unsweetened and sanding sugar. Happy baking. Once again, I spend as much time reading the cookbook as perusing the recipes.

    I have old cookbooks that belonged to my mom and grandmother, and reading this cookbook was like reading those family recipes. The Brass sisters have compiled this collection from manuscript cookbooks - personal recipes from home cooks, many handwritten. I found this cookbook at Tuesday Morning, a good source for discounted cookbooks of all kinds.

    I want to try every recipe in this cookbook. There are gorgeous photos, from the inside cover and scanned in old recipe cards to photos of old kitchen items, and happy little snippets of where they found the recipe. The recipes all sound old-fashioned to so it is a great way to keep the classics with us. Love it!

    I love this cookbook. The pictures and typeset of the book make for a lovely cookbook. Most of the recipes are uncomplicated and are old treasures. The sisters admiration for old school cooking is evident throughout.

    Charming (at times) cookbook with a lot of old (and sometimes nasty) recipes that I have seen previously. And some I really never wanted to see again....Candle salad - banana, pineapple ring, cherry - that does not need to be resurrected.

    Great recipes adapted from old and/or handwritten recipes from the early 1900s.
