Oh my goodness good luck, look what I found in an antique store—a Jubilee cookbook published in 1964.

The intro says:
A unique phenomenon occurs on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay. Natives of the area know the signs to watch for—in the moon, the tide, and the winds. Shrimps, crabs, and fish race to the water’s edge and the cry of JUBILEE! … stay tuned for more from the intro of my precious find.

In the meantime, here’s one of the recipes (pages and pages more to share over the course of the year until our own Jubilee rolls around again in 2016):

Raspberry Tarts
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
˝ pound butter
2 cups flour
raspberry jam

Mix cheese, butter and flour, and refrigerate overnight. Roll thin on floured board and cut into squares. Place a bit of raspberry jam on each square, fold over and crimp edges. Bake in 350 degree oven 30 to 40 minutes. Yields about 45 tarts.
Mrs. Leon McVay, Jr.

If you make this recipe up, let me know how it turns out.

I am going to try a new recipe from MaryJane's Cast Iron Cookbook this Saturday. I will share what I make and post a photo. Every recipe that I have tried so far has been wonderful. Now I keep buttermilk as a staple in my fridge in order to make new recipes on the spur of the moment.

Hehehe, Grace, I would certainly love to have you come for dinner to celebrate the Jubilee!! It would take awhile with Delta to get you here , but it could be easily done!

I shared the scrambled egg with cream cheese recipe with my sister who is a gourmet. She said it sounds very much like the eggs she had when she was in France. Makes a great dish for company.

Squash is one of my favorites, too. I'm always looking for new ways to cook it. This one sounds delicious!

Squash is one of my favorite things to cook. Here's a squash casserole with a rich cream sauce that sounds delicious.

Squash Casserole
(from Mrs. Jack Campbell)

2 pounds tender yellow squash
1 medium onion
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups hot, rich cream sauce
2 egg yolks, well beaten
6 tablespoons grated Swiss cheese
fine toast crumbs
salt and cayenne pepper to taste

Combine first six ingredients and boil until tender. Remove bay leaf and strain excess liquid. Add to cream sauce, add well beaten egg yolks and 4 tablespoons grated cheese. Place in buttered casserole and top with remaining grated cheese mixed with toast crumbs. Dot with butter and bake in 350 degree oven for forty minutes or until browned on top. Serves 8.

Whoa, now this is one rich and delicious sounding recipe. It sounds like a perfect brunch dish with some whole grain bread and salad.

Since our theme for this year's Jubilee Celebration is aprons, and we're working on an egg-gathering apron pattern, I thought I'd start posting some of the egg recipes found in our Jubilee cookbook. Remember, Jubilee Weekend is coming up May 7-8. Do you have an apron ready?

Scrambled Eggs with Cream Cheese
(from Mrs. T. Potter Yeend)

1 package (3 ozs) cream cheese
6 T heavy cream
1 T butter or margarine
6 eggs
1 t salt
dash fresh cracked black pepper
dash cayenne pepper
1 t finely chopped chives or parsley

Work cheese with 2 T cream until soft and creamy. Melt butter or margarine in double boiler. Beat eggs, remaining cream, salt, both kinds of pepper, and chopped chives or parsley until well mixed. Pour into melted fat and cook over boiling water, stirring frequently, until eggs are set. Now stir in cream cheese mixture and cook a minute or so longer, just enough to heat mixture. Spoon over hot toast. Serves 4.

That blueberry pie sounds so yummy! I am definitely going to try that one! I love the pictures and graphics in vintage cookbooks. I have an old grange cookbook that was my husband's grandmother's and it has photos of the women all dressed up in dresses, hose and heels...and they address themselves and Mrs. Whoever instead of by their first names. Love it!

I'm going to try both recipes! They sound wonderful! I wonder if ice box cookies are making a comeback? I've seen several of them in the last few weeks.

Wow, these cookies do look yummy! It seems like that era had lots of "icebox" recipes for families. This recipe seems like it would be a great Easter weekend cookie to have in the house for family too.

Yummy! MaryJane, I think that's easy enough for me to give it a try.

I saw Martha Stewart on her PBS show use a paper towel cardboard roll slit lengthwise to put a roll of plastic wrapped refrigerator cookies in to freeze.

Sounds like I should get out my Jubilee cookbook and share another of its recipes. I'll try to get that done later today.

Raspberries are my favorite, old cookbooks are a close second.

Ooo sounds yummy! Blueberries just came in in our neck of the woods.

Happy Day!

Oh blueberries have just come in here! We always go through so many over the rest of the summer and winter. I think I have about a cup left from last years and I think we had 60lbs in the freezer last year.

Anyone have blueberries coming on yet? Or huckleberries from the woods? (I have frozen blueberries from last year calling my name on this one:)

German Blueberry Pie

Pecan Sandies
3 eggs
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese
1 t vanilla
1 pint fresh blueberries

Crumble enough Pecan Sandies for pie crust. Blend with just enough butter to hold crumbs together. Press this mixture into an 8-inch pie pan and set aside. Add eggs, one at a time, to softened cream cheese, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Pour mixture into pie shell. Sprinkle blueberries over the top (this will seem like an excessive amount of blueberries, but use them all, as they drop down into the custard). Bake in a 350°F oven for 25 minutes. When cool, chill several hours or overnight.
