History of Freeland, Pa.
St. Ann School Guild cookbook, 1960s


What's on this page:
  • Links to four PDFs of the entire cookbook
  • List of contributors to the cookbook, chapter by chapter



We all remember favorite dishes and family recipes. Some of us are fortunate enough to have received family recipes from previous generations, while others do not have these gifts from the past. Here is a wonderful collection from the mid-1960s, typeset and produced by Tom Zubach and printed in Hazleton.

This cookbook seems to have been created with favorite recipes from women of St. Ann's and mothers of students of the school, "members and friends of St. Ann School Guild." In it you'll find old Freeland area favorites, ethnic specialties, and snazzy concoctions of the 1960s. The cover image at top left is of my mother's copy, and you can see that it has been heavily used (it used to be white) and is something of a "survivor," even without its plastic ring binder.

Below are links to PDFs of the cookbook, followed by a list of the contributors to each section, alphabetical by last name for easy searching (not in the order in which they appear in the book). There is an index at the end of the 4th PDF - somehow we are missing the first page of the index, for which I apologize.  If anyone out there reading this has the cookbook and the first index page, I would love to have a copy of that page to add to what's posted here.

I scanned our copy so that its contents would be preserved and so they could be shared. I was happy to see that some of our favorite family recipes are in here, and I know that others will find gems from their own experience here, too. Please enjoy.
