Do you remember the Good Old Days? Grandma's Kitchen is a page where you can share nostalgia, listen to an old time radio show, enjoy a little humor, read an uplifting poem, learn a forgotten craft, and more. You'll find everything below. I can hear Grandma now, "C'mon in folks! The door's open!"


Take Time to Relax

Vintage Ad Demonstrating an Early Electric VibratorHere's an Interesting Way to Relax

Today's world is so busy compared to the world of the 1950s that I grew up in. Everybody's rushing to and fro, and it's getting harder to find the time to simply sit back and unwind. I'm hoping you'll find my website a relaxing place, a place to recall good memories of favorite foods and friends and family.

You could relax like the lady above demonstrates, though I doubt those amazing "light-in-weight" appliances are still available. Can you believe it? It's much easier relax while reading Grandma's old fashioned dessert recipes and remembering the Good Old Days!

You never needed an invitation to visit Grandma, and her door was never locked. Her old fashioned coffee pot was busily perking on the kitchen stove, and you were always welcome to drop in for a visit.

Remember, this online kitchen is always open for you too. So, pour yourself a favorite cuppa, get comfy in your chair, and enjoy spending some time exploring the links below.

View in 3D

Girl with an Antique Stereoscope

The double image is an old fashioned stereoscopic photograph. It can be viewed by leaning close and staring through the images while slightly crossing the eyes until the two images converge to form one 3D picture in the center. Some people find this method easier to do than others, but it is fun to try.
