I’ve camped on the banks of the Yellowstone River—by the clear waters of Bright Angel Creek at the bottom of the Grand Canyon—on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain. I’ve toted a pack across Death Valley—carried grub along the Mohawk—enjoyed bear stew in Michigan—venison steaks on winter trails. You never need be hungry on a camping trip. At the end of each day’s going there’s the cheerful cooking fire the fragrance of food steaming in the pot—of Hunter’s Biscuits ready in a jiffy and maybe spiced with fresh, wild berries. Find your campsite, build the right kind of a cooking fire, get a supply of water at hand, and fill the air with that irresistible smell of food cooking in the open. There’s nothing else like it – From the intro by the author

A dinner recipe found in “How To Eat Canned Salmon” published by Alaska Packers Association in 1900
Fresh salmon is so cheap and plentyful in our shops here in Norway that eating canned ones seems strange to us. But a quick check showed that the net is crammed full of recipes for canned salmon so it obviously doesn’t seem that strange elsewhere. Besides, transporting fresh fish over larger distances back in 1900 was close to impossible so back then eating canned salmon probably seemed more sensible –Ted
A dinner recipe found in “Bogen om Kyllinger” (The Book About Chicken) published by Lademann in 1972
A schnitzel is meat, usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer, that is fried in some kind of oil or fat. The term is most commonly used to refer to meats coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried, but some variants such as Walliser Schnitzel are not breaded. Originating in Austria, the breaded schnitzel is popular in many countries and made using either veal, mutton, chicken, beef, turkey, reindeer, or pork. It is very similar to the French dish escalope.
From the book intro: Let’s have fun in the great out-of-doors, where the blue sky is our roof and where the ever changing beauty of streams, lakes and hills makes food taste so much better than it ever could in the familiar confines of the family dining room!
Those of us who already are backyard chefs will find in this booklet many suggestions which make outdoor cooking much easier; plus culinary hints and recipes which are refreshing changes from the unimaginative frankfurters and hamburgsandwiches which too often become a habit.
Those who never have tried outdoor cooking before should find that preparing good food is much simpler than the uninitiated might suppose.

A grand cake recipe found in “The Grand Grand Marnier Cookbook” by James Beard published in 1970
“I’m sure that most of us have enjoyed Grand Marnier after many a fine meal. But it’s a shame that we don’t enjoy it so often in our meals. I find Grand Mamier excellent for adding a little extra ‘grandeur’. I hope that you will enjoy my Grand Recipes as much as I enjoyed creating them” – James Beard
Lovely jelly sweets recipes found in “Knox Gelatine Dainty Desserts – Salads – Candies” published in 1927”
I have to admit that I love homemade sweets. We always made marzipan, cream and chocolate caramels and candied fruit for Christmas when I was a kid and the thought of those can still make me drift off into lovely childhood memories. I think it’s time to start planning the easter sweets – Ted

A classic pie recipe found in “Cake Baking Made Easy” published by Airy Fairy Flour in 1927
This is the third of these lush cookbooks flour, chocolate and yeast producers published in the 1920s I’ve prepared for posting lately. They must have made money back then, because these books were not cheap to make and we should all be thankful to those people who have had the sense to save them for posterity so we can all enjoy them today – Ted
