Be-Ro Home Recipes.jpg

I unfortunately do not have any other examples. My goal is to find a great font for a cook book that I plan to make for members of my family of my grandmother's recipes. I am looking for something vintage -- something that evokes the feeling of an old picture of your grandmother in an apron with hair curlers. I was also inspired by the image below, the colors remind me of the type of color scheme that would be in your grandmothers home, or maybe on her apron.

Seconding Stewf’s comment—what you posted is all hand-lettered, not typeset (note the variation among the repeating letters).

 

Some more vaguely similar typefaces:

 

Chonburi

Erasmus

Henriette

Jagan

Kepler Black

Maple Street

Zinzinnati

Tropiline

Thanks for the suggestions!
Great picks. Especially Henriette.

Sounds like a fun project! Your sample shows hand lettering, not a font. That said, there are many typefaces with a similar kind of ‘R’. Check out:
