From my blog at:

[...]

Sometimes it's fun just to pull a random book off the shelves or out of a box, dig into it and enjoy it for what it is. This was just such an adventure. I had actually found this book in an abandoned storage building several years ago. Being one who believes no book should be an orphan, I grabbed it, along with some others, and squirreled them away to read in a few days.

Well, a few days ended up being a few years. I was digging through a box of books and ran across this again and decided to give it a look-through.

First, this is the original 1981 version of the book. It's not high-quality paper, and it's definitely shown the wear and tear of its presumed years in storage: torn and bent pages, plenty of spine and cover wear and tear, and even a spattering of roach droppings inside the front cover. So maybe that storage building wasn't completely abandoned after all.......

Whoever picked up this book obviously didn't invest a lot in it. But at least we know where they picked it up.

Alright, enough humor and such for now. This cookbook is essentially a collection of recipes gathered from various manufacturer-approved sources: product boxes, recipe books, inserts in products, what have you. As each recipe promotes a particular product, I'm sure the manufacturers didn't mind the inclusion of the recipe in this cookbook as it would essentially be free advertising.

While there are plenty of recipes from major players and products in the food market (Nabisco, Jell-O, Keebler, Liptop, Pillsbury, Smucker's, Hunt's, etc.), I was also pleased to see other surprising products included. Perhaps the most surprising? Johnny Walker Red. Yeah, like any of that actually ended up in the recipe.

I had been trying to find this cookbook and was extremely happy to finally find it,It was a gift for my granddaughter, who is 14 and just learning to cook. It is a great book for learners. It is only a shame it has never been upddated in 1981. Despite the fact that the book is old it was in very good shape. THANK YOU.

I realize the book is no longer In print, but when listed as new and in great condition, that is what I expected. It looked old and ironically had an old price on it for less that five dollars when they were charging close to 40.
