    It's the book that started it all, the well-loved edition that first bought Betty Crocker cookbooks into American homes and hearts. Published in 1950, this ground-breaking title made cooking easy, it made cooking appealing, and best of all, it made cooking fun. Packed full of practical tips, useful hints, and lavish color photography, this was the book that shaped cooking for generations, the book that people remember. Every recipe you -- or your mother -- ever wanted is here, from pigs in blankets, to Emergency Steak to Chicken Tomato Aspic. Enjoy the clever ideas throughout -- twelve months of birthday cake ideas, showing how to decorate a cake to match each month's gem stone, pointers to make setting up a kitchen easy, or hints to make housework more pleasant. Feel a part of history when making Home Front Macaroni, developed during WW II rationing to stretch meat. Get into the spirit of fun with a Betty Crocker "Cookie Shine" or cookie baking party. People who grew up with this book will want it for the memories; those who are new to the book will want it for its charm and its intelligent approach to cooking. It's a perfect keepsake and a great gift.

    • A must have learning tool for a new cook.

      I learned from my mother's Betty Crocker cook book and have since worn out my own cook book and now have purchased for my 11 yr old and 15 yr old granddaughters to give as Christmas gifts at the younger one's request. Can't wait to give. Most questions are answered and most recipes are winners. The chiffon cakes are super.

    • Betty Crocker cookbook

      I bought three cookbooks for my girls as all they talk about is growing up and looking at my original Betty Crocker cookbook and loving all the recipes I made ...It finally wore out with use so when I discovered it in your inventory that it was they are getting for Christmas...I am sure they will be thrilled with it, bringing back many old memories...I was pleased with the ease of using your service and prompt delivery of my purchases..............

    • Great Retro Recipes

      This book contains the 'comfort food' recipes of my childhood, as well as the recipes of a generation I now work with. My nursing home residents remember the book, many of them had this in their own kitchen, and now enjoy looking up familiar recipes to use in either our "What's Cookin'?" class, or in our reminisce activities. It also comes in handy at home because I have grandchildren of my own that I enjoy passing on my love of cooking to. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who grew up in the 50's/60's or those who want authentic "Grandma" dishes.
