Rosie's Riveting Recipes

Edited by Daniela Turudich

Comfort foods and kitchen wisdom from 1940s America

Our grandmothers knew a thing or two about how to feed a family on a budget and how to stretch available food resources into wholesome and nutritious meals. "Waste not, want not" was the theme of the day — and we're bringing that theme back.

Rosie's Riveting Recipes is a collection of recipes crafted by women who labored and worked full time in factories during the day — but who still found time to provide healthy, nutritious meals for their family.

It wasn't just expected — it was their wartime duty.

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
