Some say the best recipes they have are the ones that have been passed down from generation to generation. Grandma’s recipes always seem to be a family favorite. It is fun to think that these recipes sometimes have been around for years and years. It’s crazy to think your mother, your mother’s mother, and maybe even grandma’s mother grew up cooking the same pie or summer salad. This makes vintage recipes more memorable. There is more to a vintage recipe that just the ingredients. There is story behind every one that is told through the recipe itself.
Times do change, and so do taste buds. Is it really possible to have a vintage recipe last so long? Some get lost in the shuffle and some need to be tweaked. Modern recipes all somewhat have the same guidelines; make it healthy. We now know so much about staying fit and what we should and should not eat. This requires many vintage recipes to be tweaked by substituting ingredients or cutting ingredients down to cut fat or calories. Or even finding out what the ingredient was because many ingredients then are called something different or even don’t exist today. But the heart of the recipes, the flavors and love that goes into making these never changes. Modern or vintage, recipes all have a story to tell and are a fun thing to share and connect with others.
