With just four ingredients and a few minutes to throw together, this is THE appetizer everyone in my family looks forward to during the holidays. Simple to make, so good - never any leftovers.

Old School Cookbook Favorites

Today I am sharing a few of my favorite old school cookbooks from my kitchen after so many people on Facebook asked where to get copies. 

One of the easiest and fastest ways to find an old cookbook is on Amazon. Simply type the title of the book in the search bar and hit enter - there is a good chance you will be able to find what you are looking for there, both used and new. Used ones are by far the best deal. New condition cookbooks can cost a pretty penny.
