Blog anniversary, award, chocolate brownie recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


This month is the 2 year anniversary of Joy of Desserts. In two weeks, on Thursday, March 25, Vintage Recipe Thursday will also celebrate it's first anniversary!!

I thank all of you for being here with me, and sharing your own recipes, commenting and reading this blog over these last 2 years. It's been a lot of fun reading your recipes, and especially getting to know all those who take the time to comment or participate in the many roundups I have hosted.


Bon Bon Babe at Just Shakin' My Bon Bons has given me her own One Delicious Blog award. It's one she created for us foodie bloggers, and it's just perfect for our sweet blogs. I'm passing it on to all of my regular readers with my thanks for your own delicious recipes and sweet comments. You are the best!
