Quaker Cereal Products 1927

January 24, 2013
Today I have another vintage booklet.  This one is from Quaker.  I shared a refrigerator manual and a laundry booklet earlier this month.  If you recall, the booklets are going to be used in a kitchen vignette that I am working on.

I think you will like the illustrations.

This is the cover.

The Old Quaker.

A Baked Apple and Oatmeal Breakfast.

The 1927 Breakfast Table.

Puffed Rice Cereal.

Aunt Jemima Pancakes.

Quaker Milk Spaghetti.  (I have never heard of milk spaghetti)

Farina French Cream.

Hominy Stuffed Peppers.

Noodle Ring.

And a Casserole of Mutton and Barley.

A fun old booklet from Quaker describing their products and some recipes too!

  1. Hi Calene! Oh, I just adore these olden graphics. Thanks for sharing and I see some recipes too.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  2. Hilarious! Don't suppose we'll be seeing that "Noodle Omelet" at Perkins or IHOP anytime soon! Filler to make the food stick to your ribs I spose. Fun to read.

  3. Cute Carlene. I still love old fashioned oatmeal. Can't handle the instant. Just don't like the texture. Loved the graphics and I want to try the baked apples. I have some in the fridge. Sounds yummy on a cold day.

  4. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading these old booklets you have posted. I think I like this one the best. My grandmother used to make the oatmeal baked apple recipe.

    Milk spaghetti !?!

  5. Isn't it funny how foods go out of fashion, just like everything else?! Great graphics in you book!

  6. Thanks for the history lesson in food and advertisement. I think though it is too bad, whoever aunt Jamima was she did not get full credit nor money for her recipe, if she really existed as such- whether or not there were slaves who did exist and credit to them was lost- so unfortunate.

  7. Wonderful graphics! I've never heard of the term smacker. That's a new one. There's a couple of recipes I think I'll try. Have always loved oats, so I can't go wrong!

  8. These are wonderful Carlene. I have several old cookbooks and advertising things from my mother and J's mother. Love looking through them.

  9. What a great book Carlene, Thanks for sharing it with us. I love Oatmeal.

  10. Carlene, what a great post. Amazing booklet you have. I love the line, about their pristine sunlit plants, etc...and then, we wish you could see them! lol So funny. Beautiful little vignette with the baked apples. Oh, I wish I had those dishes!!

  11. I'll probably pass on the mutton and barley casserole, but I still use the original oatmeal and raisin cookie recipe.


  12. Old cookbooks are so great, esp the advertising ones. Love it!

  13. Milk spaghetti? Hmm never heard of that either.

  14. Hi there! I am a new reader and follower of your blog. I am so enjoying all of your posts and looking forward to more...This booklet is amazing. Thank you for sharing with us!

  15. Cute. I think I'll have oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow. It's been awhile. I think it's time, esp. if it's the mainstay of ten billion breakfasts. I hate to be left out. Liz @ Quirky Vistas

  16. I love looking at this! I'm excited to see what you do with it! Thanks so much for your kind comment on my post about my mixing bowl collection.

  17. Those illustrations were great! Have you cooked any of those recipes?? I think you should make one and post it!
