It's an all-encompassing cookbook May 9, 2008
In my 38 years of marriage, I have completely worn out 2 Betty Crocker picture cookbooks. So I was thrilled to find that this site.com carried them. It turns out the one I ordered is an even older copy, but it seems to have all the info I need, and my old favorite recipes. I'm an old- fashioned cook, so I need a cookbook that does not use instant ingredients. It also has basic info for every area of cooking and baking, which is why I turn to it regularly for help. This was my first this site.com purchase. It will not be my last. from S.D.
Terrific Repro! Apr 7, 2008
My favorite cookbook! My grandmother gave me the pick of all her cookbooks when I had successfully baked a cake from scratch at 9 years old (failed twice before!) I picked it for the pictures so I'd know what it should look like! I learned all kinds of preparation methods with the easy to follow directions and pictures including baking bread when I was 10 yrs old!
All the same pix and recipes I remember in a format that lies flat and each category is tabbed for easy reference. I ordered one for my daughter and my daugther-in-law as well as myself! (My old 1950 copy is very worn but I was still referring to it periodically)
