They're here! The West Bend Sesquicentennial Cookbooks arrived last week. We'll be sending out the pre-ordered ones starting this week. If you would like one, you can either let me know or go directly to West Bend's web site and order it. The price is a really inexpensive $12.00 plus $5.95 for shipping.
There are over 800 recipes along with photos of early West Bend. There is even a section called "Old Time Favorites" where each recipe includes a short description. This may be what the submitter remembers about eating it or making it or where it came from. My favorite was the ENTIRE 1946 Home Ec class submitting recipes they had received from their Home Ec teacher Miss Mabel Dinsmore. How cool is that!
Regardless of whether or not you are a native West Bender this cookbook will delight you with the variety of recipes. We've got a thousand to sell, so let's get crackin'!
