Today I scored an old Joy of Cooking cookbook at The Hillcrest Junk Company at 623 North Beechwood (across from the Kroger in Hillcrest). I was told it was good to have one around. How I lived without this book, I'll never know. It has everything. It comes complete with cooking stains. I feel like I have street cred now.
The store has another copy for sale, a bit more recent, but its there nonetheless for 5 bucks. But the real find was the collection of old cookbooks from churches and communities all over the state, from Texarkana to Blytheville. Three bucks a piece.
Hillcrest Junk Company is open Sunday-Monday-Tuesday from 12-5. If these books are still there in a few weeks, I'm snagging 'em. Nothing like old school Arkansas recipes.
