You have hundreds of easy dessert recipes to choose from — Grandma's personal favorites! All are easily made using simple, wholesome ingredients. These old fashioned desserts are now considered comfort foods by those of us who remember the delicious taste of homemade cooking.
You might be thinking, "But the old time recipes aren't as easy to make as today's." The truth is most vintage recipes are surprisingly simple when given the chance, and often very forgiving, as they were written for home cooks without the modern appliances you enjoy.
Grandma learned how to make amazing desserts using these simple recipes, and you can too. Her helpful tips are sprinkled throughout the site, and you'll find a red Help button on every recipe page for when you need advice on cooking times and temperature conversions.
You'll have fun making the same desserts your family enjoyed generations
ago, plus you'll learn some new cooking skills too. As Julia Child said, "Once you
have mastered a technique, you barely have to look at a recipe again."
Take it from me, you'll want to add Grandma's unique collection of family recipes to your own recipe box. They are that good!
Grandma's easy dessert recipes call for simple, basic ingredients. All-natural ingredients like fresh fruit, eggs, milk, cream, butter, sugar, and flour — no artificial flavors or harmful trans fats here.
These are healthy, old time desserts, the genuine article. Yes, there are some calories involved, but there's nothing wrong with calories in moderation. So don't worry. Just enjoy the delicious taste.
These classic treats are inexpensive and taste country-style delicious. They are the standard by which today's desserts are judged. Most are simple and easy to make, while some are fancier and may take you a bit longer to prepare.
After all, there are times when you won't want to rush perfection. But, with your modern kitchen appliances, you can make these vintage desserts faster than Grandma ever dreamed possible.
Not only will you love experimenting with these homemade dessert recipes, but you'll enjoy reading them too. They offer us a rare, nostalgic peek into the type of treats people were eating generations ago and the practical methods they used to prepare them.
Ingenuity and patience were woven into Grandma's recipes, as the cooks of her day could only use the ingredients and equipment they had available. And above all, her family could always taste her love in the results.
Just imagine the novelty of tasting the actual treats your great grandparents once made and enjoyed on family occasions.
In the coming months, I'll be searching through Grandma's old cookbooks for her best dessert recipes, the genuine nuggets. And I'll add them to this site in their original format exactly as they were first published.
Some of the recipes were created by the best-known chefs of the 1800s, while others originated in farmhouse kitchens. You're sure to find the perfect dish to serve for every occasion.
It's an outstanding collection of sumptuous treats and confections, so be sure to visit often and search through the pages. When you see a recipe you like, simply print it out, and try it. Enjoy a tasty treat from the past.
In the Holiday and International sections you'll discover even more ideas for cookies, cakes, pies, and squares. Some will be familiar to you, while others might seem unique or unusual, but all will taste absolutely delicious.
