|WELCOME to the Soft Memories free recipe area. Please note that the primary
recipes in our database are those of Modern Priscilla. The 1924 edition has
already been entered in its entirety. The pages in the book offering
instructions and suggestions have been entered in their respective categories
as "Facts to Remember". On some pages the related categories and
recipes are shown directly to the right. The 1930 edition is still in process. And of course, all
these recipes were tried and approved in the Modern Priscilla Proving Plant. Unfortunately, the Modern Priscilla cookbooks contain no images.
Any recipes entered from other sources are differentiated by the parent category being presented in all caps. For example: VINTAGE - FLEISCHMANN'S YEAST. The Fleischmann recipes currently entered are from booklets printed in 1916 through 1920. We hope to post more as time goes by.
Oven temperatures in old recipes often call for a "quick" or "moderate" oven. We found a posting on the forum at www.cheftalk.com for oven temperatures in today's kitchens, and for your convenience have posted that information below:
Very slow oven below 300 degrees F.
Slow oven 300 degrees F.
Moderately slow oven 325 degrees F.
Moderate oven 350 degrees F.
Moderately hot oven 375 degrees F.
Quick oven 375 - 400 degrees F.
Hot oven 400-425 degrees F.
Very hot oven 450-475 degrees F.
Extremely hot oven 500 degrees F. or more
We hope you have fun trying your hand at some of these recipes and will return to rate them and post helpful comments for other visitors. Enjoy, and welcome to Soft Memories!
