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 received this cookbook as a christmas gift from my father-in-law. The recipes are easy to follow, with simple ingredients, and they are so good! There is a variety of recipes, from breakfast, to soups, to meatless meals, to desert, and everything in between! I have really enjoyed this cookbook because it doesn't strain my budget to cook from it, I am a young mom with a 13 month old baby so that is important to me! My husband has also enjoyed the recipes, we haven't yet found anything that we didn't like! I also sent this cookbook to my sister as a wedding shower gift! I would definitely recommend this cookbook to beginners and those who have been cooking for years and would like something new!

Format: Hardcover
Published in 1998, this book features >200 classic Betty Crocker recipes accompanied by full color photos. The book features the winning recipes of 75 Betty Crocker contestants and their stories.
I found a lot of the recipes easy to make and with ingredients that were readily available. Featured Chapters include:
1. Breakfast
2. Lunch- soup, salads and sandwiches
3. Dinner- beef, chicken, fish and vegetarian meals
4. Sides/Breads
5. Desserts
The book also featured an introduction on the development of food icon Betty Crocker- from 1921 to present day. The real purpose of the book was to highlight the 75 women across America who developed their own recipes. My favorite recipes incude:
1. Strawberry muffins- delicious with a great strussel topping and suprisingly easy to make
2. Orange Currant Scones- i made this with dried cranberries instead of the harder to find currants
3. Popovers- rich and buttery

Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift this past Christmas. It is a collection of classic Betty Crocker recipes and some original creations. It is a compilation of mostly 'ole stand-by recipes that you would want to prepare for your family. Great for cupboard cooking...most of what you need to prepare the dishes you can find in your cupboard on any given night of the week.
This cookbook is NOT a "how-to" guide to cooking, nor was it intended to be. It is a sentimental look at how women's lives have evolved around and in their kitchens. What makes this book so invitng is that each recipe features a different "Betty Crocker" woman behind the cooking of each dish. There are also some interesting facts about Betty Crocker included throughout the text.
I would recommend this book as a gift to a seasoned cook who would appreciate the glimpses into some other women's lives. However, I definitely think that there are other titles that would offer more diverse recipes and new culinary ideas.

This was the first cookbook I ever had. After realizing it was lost during our last move, I just had to buy another. It's filled with delicious recipes and great heart warming stories. I especially liked the history of Betty Crocker.

The recipes are broken up into easy to find chapters with a recipe list at the beginning of each one. There are plenty of great pictures, although not every recipe is pictured. This is a definite must-have cookbook!
