The Congressional Club Cookbook

While browsing thru a cute little consignment shop with my friend Miranda, I came across this Congressional Club Cookbook. It seriously called to me- “Wendy, you need me in your collection.”

Then I saw this one…

One has a foreward from Mrs. John F Kennedy, and the other with a foreward from Mrs. Lyndon B Johnson. Super cool. I love the colors of the covers too…. an added bonus.

I purchased one, and was blessed to get the other one from Miranda- as a gift! What a great friend! I love the fact that they are older, and filled with classic family recipes and with rich history inside of them. I’m going to plan a week of dinners from the books, and I will let you know which ones I choose and how they turn out.

After I got home, I started searching online ( sidenote: I love Google). I found the current Congressional Club Cookbook. It features favorite family recipes from the members of our Hous & Senate, Supreme Court Justices, and more. I’ve always wondered what they eat at their dinner table.

And if you are interested in a history of the Congressional Club Cookbook, I highly recommend reading. Very fascinating.

Happy Baking!
