I have Volume 4 of Thelma Allen's cookbook (set), Recipes from Sweet Yesterday. I have tried to buy Volumes 1-2 and 3 by going to their web site at sweetyesterdays.net, and also writing to them, but, to no avail. It appears they've gone out of business. Where can I get these "precious" recipe books to complete my set? I use them all the time.

Two of the other "Recipes from Sweet Yesterday" Cookbooks are for sale now on eBay. Just search on "Recipes from Sweet Yesterday". I found items numbered 150422502150, 220332633356, and 400105502560. You may want to enter a sustained search on eBay so you get notification emails when the other "Recipes from Sweet Yesterday" Cookbook is listed. Everything I've ever wanted has been listed on eBay eventually! Good luck!
Sue: Vol one is on e-bay now. There are also some on half.com and Amazon. Begonia
I did a search, and found this website which seems
to have any of the "Recipes from Sweet Yesterday"
books. You might want to check it out in order
to find all 4 volumes.
They did mention that the books had been out of
print, but were to be reprinted very soon. Maybe
they are by now.
Good Luck to you,

I am not sure it's safe to open a few of the current web sites about sweet yesterday cookbooks right now because McAfee marked many of them as questionable (including the one's showing Thelma's name) ;-( I tried to find a PDF copy of them for you but no such luck :-( Hopefully these two Amazon links (which are deemed safe) will help you:
You may get the books at Alibris.com
You are using the wrong site. Thelma's site is www.sweetyesterdays.com (with an "S" behind). She is alive and well, according to her website. They are entirely sold out of her cookbooks right now, but are expecting to reorder soon. I also checked eBay and they have some for sale. Personally, I think I would stick with Thelma's site for the cookbooks. There is a 'contact' button to email them, and I would do so, getting on a list to purchase her cookbooks. I think she would be tickled to know how much trouble you have gone through to get her books.
I am reiterating that any 'sweet yesterday(s)' links were, and still are as of today, marked by McAfee as questionable!
I am Thelma Allen's grandson's wife (yes, the boy who grows up on the covers!). The cookbooks will not be reprinted ever again, as far as I am aware. Sadly, Thelma passed away in 2009 and her son who was managing the cookbooks has moved on to other projects. I don't even have a full set myself. I watch for them at yard sales, used book stores, and such! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!
