I loved both of her Grandma's wartime cookbooks. This was the baking book. Back then butter and sugar were rationed so they found other ways to sweeten desserts (like using the syrup the fruit was packed in) but in today's world it would be considered a healthier dessert.

With a watchful eye, you'll find low sugar recipes here... but watch out for that standard replacement during the war years: white corn syrup. I marked several recipes to try.

I especially enjoyed the reprints of the war posters encouraging the homemakers to grown their own, to conserve, etc.

Nothing flashy, without recipe or period photos. But does have a lot of unusual recipes from the era...that meet rationing regulations! Haha

Good illustrations and pictures of wartime posters. Very good narrative for recipes and chapters that explained rationing and how recipes were developed to cope with the rationing.

I enjoyed reading and have tried some of the recipes. There are many simple recipes that kids can easily make.

I wish the recipes hadn't be updated. I would have prefered the original recipes with suggestions for updates.

This was a Christmas gift from my sweetheart, and it is a delightful and incredible read about baking during a very different time in history. There are some recipes I'm intrigued to try.
