Handwritten Recipes is a treasury of Michael?s most fascinating found recipes. You?ll find classic Americana like pies and casseroles alongside ethnic mainstays such as Italian cookies, springerle, and German dumplings.

You can venture to try any recipe, or just enjoy Popek?s findings as a time capsule from kitchens of generations gone by.
