Today’s Community Cookbook: Out of the Skillet: Old Southern Recipes (Copyright 1947. Published by St. Anne’s Guild of The Parish of Christ Church, Holly Springs, MS).

This little book is a marvelous look into recipes or “receipts” that have been adapted only so that “modern conveniences such as stoves with adjustable controls” can be used.  Sprinkled between illustrations of historic homes in Holly Springs, Mississippi, the recipes in this book—from the simplest pecan pie we’ve ever seen to a potato salad from 1860—are an authentic and charming glimpse into the recipes that define the Old South.

Don’t forget to send us a photo of your favorite community cookbook for a chance to win a collection of vintage cookbooks!
