Stained Page News is the best name for a newsletter all about cookbooks. You can click the link to learn more about SPN but I subscribed when my friend Joanne told me about her daughter’s friend , Paula Forbes, writing all about cookbooks. She’s had a lot of experience critiquing cookbooks.
I love cookbooks. Reading them. Thinking about what you can cook or bake. Trying something new. I probably have too many of them. My sister sends me funny ones. Now we Google snd search online but it’s wonderful to have a cookbook in hand poring over the possibilities. Favorite recipes cooked often show signs of the cooking right on the page.
Hence Stained Page News.
I was baking from a favorite recipe today (spoiler alert cousin Chris) and saw this stained page. it’s that time of year -I thought it might be interesting to see other contributions of your stained page. Email me your favorite stained page and anything you want us to know about the recipe. Rutheh (at) gmail (dot)com and I’ll post a gallery.
I’m compiling family recipes as a Pandemic project snd hope to make a little book.
In the meantime head over to Stained Page News .
Here are a couple of my stained pages.
1. This stained page is my recipe for making a gingerbread house. I’ve been making this recipe and pattern since the little girl in the photo was 4. I think I only missed one year. The recipe is faded and stained and I might need to re-type it. But I just sent a photocopy and the pattern pieces to my daughter, who is the little one in the photo. She is now 36 and it’s time for her to start making it with her own little ones.
2. Not sure if this qualified for a “stained page” but this is one of the first cookbooks (1973 ediiton) I bought in order to learn to cook. First lesson: don’t put your cookbook on the stove when following a recipe. Same goes for cutting

A sign of love, deliciousness and joy 😊
What a nice comment Becky, thank you.
There is a phone # on the side of your stained page…. maybe someone called while you were baking!!
Do you know who belongs to that Number???
No area code so recipe has been around awhile.
9090. Must be Mork.
Those recipes look delicious! Every time I see a recipe that looks good to me in a magazine I rip it out (or take a picture if the magazine is not mine) and put it in a folder. Well, the folder is now close to 6″ thick – so time to actually start *making* te recipes. 😀
My sister looked at my folder of clipped recipes like that and she said “A little heavy on the desserts!”
Thank you, Ruth for generating the blog idea. Thank all of you for sending the recipes, photos and stories behind the snap shots..
A fun project to be sure. I hope I get some more contributions for the Stained Pages gallery.
