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.

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!

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.

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

My mom gave this to me for my birthday, many moons ago. This is definitely one of my favorite cookbooks, one that I return to time and again for everything from main course, to breads, to desserts, cookies, and cakes. I like this because the recipes are tried and true, and the number of recipes is not overwhelming. There are pictures of every recipe offered, plus step by step on some. In addition, "Betty" provides history and interesting facts about Betty Crocker and Gold Medal in little blurbs throughout the book. In fact, one of my favorite recipes is one not found in the index, but instead is found in one of the tiny images of an ad run in a magazine back in the 40's. I scrounged up a magnifying glass and figured out what the recipe called for. It's easy to make, and super delicious. Found on page 63 of my book and entitled "Leftover Turkey can be Exciting!," the recipe for Creamy Meat Pie has never failed to elicit appreciative words from my family and guests.
