Sunset‘s 1941 Household Handbook

Sunset has always been full of tips and tricks to help you run your home. As far back as the early mid-20th century, we’ve been doling out suggestions to readers on how to make the most of their space and time. 

Sunset‘s First Edible Gardening Book

A couple of weeks ago, San Francisco announced a tax break for those who turn their vacant lots into urban farms. Basically, if accepted into the program, the property owner’s annual dues to the city would drop significantly—as long as they agreed to upkeep it for at least five years and use the produce for the community’s betterment.

Hot Dog Days of Summer

Sunset has published countless cookbooks—ones on grilling, casseroles, seafood, vegetarian food, and even Chinese food. In my recent search of the Sunset archives, I stumbled upon a surprising collection of recipes. It’s not a book, but it’s more like a pamphlet. Printed in 1960, this mini-book has 45 different ways to prepare hot dogs.
