    Three generations of Irwin cooks have used this. My grandmother, my mother, and now me. Quite simply, this my favorite cookbook. The meatloaf recipe saved me from having to admit to my Aunt Mary that I didn't know how to cook meatloaf. More importantly, it saved me from the 30 minute long lecture on "how she would cook it".

    I find it hard to believe the recipes came from the earlier generations of simple hard working people. The ingredients are very processed 1950's- 60's sounding stuff. I am giving it 2 stars because I'm a sucker for any cook book, even if hot dogs are on the ingredients list.

    A collection of old-fashioned recipes from the Mennonite community. There are over 1,100 delicious recipes in this collection. Everything is made from scratch.

    This is the book I used when I learned to cook and I go to it often. I have my grandma's copy and that makes it special because she taught me to love to cook.

    A gift from my grandmother.
    Simply the best rhubarb crisp recipe I've ever seen or tasted.
