1943 Recipes for Today

I was reading this vintage cookbook last night, and while researching it; I found a full download of it online. It was published by General Foods Corp., in 1943 during World War II. The booklet addresses food shortages and rations that the United States experienced during the war and offers creative ways to prepare meals (using many of the General Foods products)

I appreciate how they took one meal, and turned it in to several different dishes.


I was inspired to try the stew combinations. I made the basic one today with plans to try the combinations until I run out.

I know we all do this, but I’d never heard of cereal dumplings, so I started browsing more of the book, and gathered quite a few new ideas to try.

Interesting read
