A word of explanation: This past week my mother sent me my gran's recipe for Canadian Butter Tarts. I was expecting a scan of a handwritten or typed index card, but instead she sent me a scan of a page from an Eastern Star cookbook to which my gran had contributed in 1956. These little cookbooks are ubiquitous in Eastern Star and certain religious groups: assembled from recipes contributed by their members, laboriously typeset and bound with plastic comb-binding, they were often sold as fundraisers by the Women's Church Board or similar organisations. Sometimes the recipes are terrifying -- there are usually a lot of Jello Salads and Casseroles.

I think the Doctor probably has a whole collection of them in the library.

I would LOVE to own this cookbook, even if the page numbering would be impossible to figure out :D

Thanks for the happy making before I had to head to work. I just keep looking back up and smiling all over again.

I collect those cookbooks, man. Pentecostals LOVE them.

Oh, goodness, I'm from Texas, the Ladies Auxiliary of every Baptist church in Texas does one of these every few years. I've a bit of a collection and while heavy on Jello Salads and Casseroles (and down here Chili), with a sprinkling of truly terrifying recipes, I will say without question the desert section is generally to die for. The cookies and quick bread recipes alone are generally well worth the price of the book.

This is EXTREMELY FUNNY. I have read and reread these two pages more than once because I was afraid I had somehow missed something -- I completely lost it at the fifty-something entries dedicated to TEAS. I love tea! And also the :) and :( and :O under SIDES. AWESOME.

Now that I've finished laughing, I want to see Ianto's reaction when he's tidying Jack's office, and finds this.

I have two of those: one from the church my Dad grew up in, one from our local Sons of Norway cookbook.

LOL! Is there more? There should be more. ^_^ At least Jack-related more.

I kind of lost it about the Vegetable part - which I agree with completely. How to avoid them, indeed!

And the coffee. (Ianto has to teach aliens about coffee?! Yay!)

And the beans.

And the desert.

I want this cookbook!!!

I think I saw this cookbook at the last flea market I went to.

I too would like to read the story of Ianto finding it on Jack's desk.

This was quite amusing. The page "numbers" were a very nice touch!

Oh G-d. Those cookbooks were a terrifying feature of my childhood. (I was born in 1964, and my mother is an atrocious cook. I have no doubt that your gran's recipe is lovely, but o.m.g. the horrors contained in some of those books would scare Cthulhu back to R'lyeh.

Also, this is cute, I can't believe I forgot to say so! It amused me deeply.

*deeply entertained* I love those cookbooks. Yeah, some of the recipes are utterly terrifying, this is true, but generally the desserts section (which is, like, double the length of any other section) is a goldmine of deliciousness.

Hee! Clever. I love the number of pages about tea and the "reasons Jack Harkness is not allowed to edit this anymore."

I know those cookbooks! I've a lot that belonged to mum and gran and various great aunts. I will get the family curry recipe(which is far better than my attempts) in one eventually. Probably when I get married or get a masters.

I love that there are 26 pages about tea, and that the listing of Coffee was "Ianto Jones".

Also, Jack soooo belongs on page 57. I wonder what the recipe says...
