Best Coookbook on my shelf! Dec 25, 2008
As a collector of vintage cookbooks, I have to say this is the very best reprint I have ever seen! The old 1950's editions have become my favorites, as they have so many classic recipes for the dishes remembered from childhood...before we were concerned about carb intake, low fat, and diets. If you are looking for a "Healthy Lifestyle" cookbook, this is not for you, but if you want to take a wonderful trip back in time, then this is THE book for you! When I page through this book, I am transported back to my Nana's kitchen and the fondest memories I have of time spent cooking and baking. The book is so authentic, right down to the pages being copied with "aged" edges, yet it is not worn out from use as are so many of my original cookbooks. This is a fantastic collection of recipes with clear and concise directions and many useful tips. If you want a book full of great recipes and much nostalgia, I highly, highly recommend this cookbook!
