I'm so anxious to try out all of my old favorite recipes.

Although some information is outdated, over all, this is a good cookbook for beginners, and very comprehensive.

My sister-in-law used my wife's 1968 Cook Book, and loved it.

Although some information is outdated, over all, this is a good cookbook for beginners, and very comprehensive.

It is the familiar Red and white checked three ring binder, indexed with tabbed dividers, inside cover has information like oven chart translation of older terms such as 'hot oven' or 'slow oven,' as well as thermometer readings for meat, candy temperatures, substitutions, measurement equivalents, can sizes, how many crackers it takes to make a cup of fine crumbs, how much dry macaroni makes 2 1/4 cups cooked macaroni, and so forth.

Color photographs and information for beginning cooks throughout (how to choose vegetables or cuts of meat, how to clean them, etc). There are directions for canning and freezing as well as preparing for ready to serve meals.

There is also a section on table settings formal and informal, with photographs, directions for folding napkins, menus for entertaining, and a page or two on stain removal.

I've chosen three vegetables to look up in this cookbook to give you some idea of the sorts of information and recipes you will find here:

Asparagus: Wash; scrub gently with vegetable brush. If sandy, scrape off the scales. Break stalks- they will snap where tender part starts. Cut up, cook covered in a small amount of boiling salted water 8-10 minutes.

Serving suggestions:

with Hollandaise or Bearnaise Sauce (helpful recipes for these included); garnish with hard cooked egg slices. Toss with toasted almonds or croutons. Heat Italian dressing and pour over. Stir fry.

Recipes: a casserole with butter, flour, milk, seasoning, cracker crumbs, hard boiled eggs;

Parsnips: Wash thoroughly; pare or scrape. Slice crosswise or lengthwise, as desired.

This cookbook is the basic every young wife should have...I had one when I was a newlywed, but I'd long since used it to oblivion. Newer versions didn't have some of my favorite recipes, so I was delighted to find a lightly used copy from a reliable dealer. For people who like to cook on a daily basis, nothing beats Better Homes and Gardens. It has a little bit of everything from canning to dessert.

I owned this years and years ago in the 80's, and I own a newer one now. But bought this one for my daughter, because she just moved out on her own, and this was a beloved cookbook in our home when she was 11 on, she remembers the recipes she loved to help me with. In her 20's now it is loved. It contains some great recipes the newer ones didn't. So speaking from experience you can not do wrong with this one.

My son wants MY book like this from 1965 (when we got married) but I won't give it up till I'm gone (LOL). Anyway, I tried another and it was the same year but didn't have the recipes he wants and wasn't the same as mine. This one has City Chicken, my coffee cake, baked beans and various other recipes I use regularly. It was in very good condition, with slightly browned pages. No problem - MINE is duct taped!!! I should keep this one but I like my old worn out. My son is a happy camper too.
Buy was good to work with. Moral of the story - make sure if you're getting this that you're getting the recipes you're looking for and if it's not the right one you can return it, as I did the first one.

I got this cook book over 20 years ago with Green Stamps that I collected while in High School. I used the book so much that it became very stained. My husband believing he was doing me a favor bought me the Newer "Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book," but I was very disappointed in the book because many of my favorite recipes had been removed or changed.

Recently I found the cook book I originally had -- this book! "Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book." It is a used book, but it is in very good condition. I have already used it many times since receiving it in the mail. I'm so anxious to try out all of my old favorite recipes.

I received my book quickly and in very good condition. I am extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend Amazon's services to anyone wanting to purchase books at reasonable costs.

My mother had this exact cookbook when I was growing up, I found one on Ebay and wore it out, so I was very excited to see that I could get it through Amazon. And am very pleased.
