In A Healthier, Greener New Year With Collecting I discuss the practical side of collecting vintage cookbooks. While scanning/uploading some of my vintage cookbooks to the community, I rediscovered this cute little poem by Vera Blackwell (in the foreward to The Amarillo Garden Club's Blue Ribbon Recipes book):
May all who buy this little book
Succeed with all they try to cook,
That art which will not lose its worth
While man abides upon this earth.
