More About the Author

Since 1921, the Betty Crocker name has symbolized the General Mills continuing tradition of service to consumers. Although Betty was never a real person, her name and identity have become synonymous with helpfulness, trustworthiness and quality.

Betty Crocker has survived the decades by providing consumers with food information and food products that are contemporary without being faddish. The first hardcover cookbook, Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook was published in 1950 and quickly became a national best seller. Since then, more than 250 Betty Crocker cookbooks have been published.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have an original copy of this book and am "of an age" to have spent a good deal of time in the kitchen feeding family and friends. The recipes in this book are solid, tasty, and uncomplicated for the too busy women of today who can only cook on the weekends..if then. When I scan today's cookbooks I am usually disappointed by the lack of REALLY good recipes that don't require TIME or odd ingredients...food is food...meant to eat and enjoy, not dread preparing or worse...relying on prepared, chemically infused concoctions from the store. When you cook from scratch, you can control fat and sugar content and include NO chemicals. Highly recommend!

This is the same book published in 1979 for the 100 years of Gold Medal. Excelent recipes with homey flavor.

My first copy of this book was entitled "Gold Medal: A Century of Success Cookbook" and was offered free with Gold Medal Flour proofs of purchase. I have loved the recipes from the first time I used one and tried to find another copy of the book years later with no luck. Then I discovered that the title had been changed and "Voila", was very pleased to be able to get a second copy for our summer camp. These are the old, tried and true recipes our mothers used and my favorite is for the potato yeast bread; an easy, never-fail recipe that is delicious. If you like to bake, this is the book for you.

Format: Hardcover
This really is a classic and well worth owning. I go back to this cookbook again and again and every recipe that I've tried has turned out great...and also reminds me of things my grandma and other relatives used to make and bring to family events and holidays. My favorite happens to be the recipe for the fruit cobbler, one that you can use different kinds of fruit with. It was great with fresh rhubarb. I took some to a party and it vanished in just a few minutes.

The recipes are fairly simple, so should be good for a beginner baker. There are pies, cakes, cookies, savory entres, and pastries of all kinds with lots of full color pictures of the finished goodie. There are also some frosting recipes that go along with a few of the cakes. This would be a good cookbook to buy as a gift, perhaps with a nice 9X13 pan or a couple of round cake pans or a pretty pie tin.
