1930's Ghirardelli Recipes

I really got a kick out of it when I found this advertisement page in an old magazine from 1932:

Why? Because I had found the little packet filled with recipe cards in a kitchen drawer when we moved into this house. I think my mother-in-law sent for everything under the sun when she was a young woman. I used to do the very same thing!

I surely do wish they had saved much more than they did in this old home over the years, but I'm glad that I at least have what I do. And I just love it when I find something in a vintage magazine that I have, whether it's something I have collected or inherited.
Here are some of the recipes, below.

I'm afraid I am not allowing myself to bake right now.

But, yum!

Yum yum indeed! I always enjoy going to Ghirardelli's in San Francisco and getting a lovely piece of some kind of chocolate. I would love to try the pudding recipe. Remember when we were little and had home cooked pudding? Great post. Love T
