Try my Granny’s Delicious Old-Fashioned Recipes

The ‘Nostalgic Cook Book’ reveals all the delicious, healthy, inexpensive and forgotten recipes of yesteryear!

I MISS MY GRANDMOTHER for many reasons… But one thing I often reminisce about is her delicious meals. She didn’t have much money, but we always ate really well – every day she cooked delicious healthy dishes, no ready-made meals in those days!

Before my granny passed away at the grand old age of 94, and having hardly suffered a serious day’s illness in her life, she made sure that I received all her secret recipes.

Healthy wholesome recipes….

My husband and I use these recipes every week and it’s no wonder that we have a very healthy family with children who refuse to eat junk food and tasteless supermarket prepared foods. They’re even learning to cook!

I wanted to make sure that granny’s recipes lived on so I decided to write this book. I did extensive research and added a number of other traditional recipes to those of my grandmother, and compiled ‘The Nostalgic Cook Book’ — the ultimate book of old-fashioned recipes including many wartime recipes that kept our workforce both happy and healthy, and kept our soldiers fit to fight on the battlefields!

Recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert!
