Bartlett History Museum recruiting recipes for cookbook

Success - Article sent! close

The Bartlett History Museum has dived into the culinary world.

OK, so you're thinking: What in the world does a museum know about cooking?

Maybe nothing. But Bartlett curators know something about collections. The museum has compiled a digital cookbook packed with vintage photos and more than 50 recipes passed down from Bartlett families. And organizers are looking for more.

The photos tend to capture the seasonal flavors in recipes. There's a couple bundled up in a horse-drawn carriage. And there's a farmer taking a break from threshing season.

Flip through the pages online, and you'll find charming, personal recipes like "Aunt Clara's Dot Cookies" and "Betty Mae's Carrot Cake."

Even if you're not a seasoned chef, the instructions are straightforward and come with the bonus of a peek into Bartlett's past.

The "Seasoned with History Cookbook" is available at To contribute a recipe, email museum Director Pam Rohleder at
