A couple of sample pages from Peggy: JEC March 1965 Page 1 - JEC March 1965 Page 2
I asked my Mom about those pages. It was from a cooking demo that ladies were invited to give at JEC. They were the recipe hand-outs.

More from Peggy: I had a chance to look at the cookbooks my Mom has. There are some that are still packed away. We'll try to look for those at a later time. The ones she has and uses are:

1. "Adventures in Jewish Cooking", Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Jewish Community, 4th edition, 1978.

2. "What's Cookin'", B'Nai B'rith Women, Duluth, MN, not dated, recipes not identified by contributors.

3. "New Kosher Cookbook", Women's League, Beth El Synagogue, Minneapolis, MN, not dated.

4. Passover Cookbook with Cover page missing, but believed to be from Minneapolis Talmud Torah, unknown date.

We have a cookbook called "Choice Recipes" by Hortense Polinksy from the Sisterhood of Temple Emanuel that was published in 1929.
