In 1913, the women of the First Christian Church of Luther organized a group to share the problems and responsibilities of the Church, calling themselves the Heart and Hand Workers. The growing congregation built its second church building in 1919, and tradition has it that this book was one of the fund-raising projects undertaken to pay for it.

Heart and Hand Cookbook


These recipes are from the cookbook of Margaret “Maggie” (Conner) Caldwell, a Quaker lady of Chester County, Pa. circa 1800-1860.

If you have an OLD recipe collection that you would like included please feel free to contact me. The collection can either be hosted here or at your own site. If you would like to do the pages that's fine, or I can create them for you. Please include a little something about the collection to give it some sense of history. Billie E. Walsh
