The dust jacket was ripped, but the book itself is in very good shape.

If you want to cook and bake like your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother did than you will want this book. I doubt the previous reviewer even made any of the recipes. My family has always used this book and has turned out he best pies and baked beans you could imagine. This is a famous cookbook.

I lost this cookbook when my newly married daughter took it with the usual "I'll bring it back Mom!" That was 16 years ago and I have been looking for one ever since. I like the old recipes, the way it relies very little on pre-packaged, high salt, high sugar, high preservative ingredients. It takes a bit more fore thought, but the results are great. I cook on the weekends and freeze individual servings for the nights I am too tired or late getting home to cook. This book is a great resource for someone who wants to cut down on the processed foods we tend to consume these days. Try it and enjoy!

The book was in much better condition than I expected. The dust cover showed a bit of wear and tear, but the book was in great shape. I am greatly pleased with it. If you care to and could find a copy in good shape, it would be a handy reference and interesting addition to anyone's cookbook collection!

Contains over 400 recipes. This is my go-to cookbook. I love it because I can read several recipes and choose ingredients from among them. Example, the sweet potatoes, I don't add milk or orange juice, nor salt or butter, but do add nutmeg, allspice,
cinnamon and candied ginger plus vanilla and Stroh rum for the moisture. My family loves it.

I received this book just as it was described. I was trying to find a duplicate of a cookbook I was given by my mother-in-law years ago.. which I passed on to my son. This isn't the exact one, but it's close. Good purchase.

My daughter wanted my old cook book for years and this was perfect for her. Arrived quickly with some damage but received a partial refund which satisfied me. Thank you.

This is a cookbook my wife has used for years. Unfortunately her copy was well-worn with loose pages and my daughter got her a new edition to replace it. There's a big difference. The recipes have been changed and are not as good, in our opinion. Some steps in the cooking have been eliminated. This edition retains all of the original steps in the recipes. Great cookbook.

This edition is very close to the one we grew up with. At thirty bucks, a little more than I planned to pay, but worth it for the joy it brought, and, I am told, it is in excellent condition. Favorite recipes are the shaker jar waffles and the 8 inch square sour cream chocolate cake. Just terrific food prepared with common ingredients, predating the onslaught of convenience food cookbooks.

The book uses locators rather than pages, but it has the same index as the print edition, making it very difficult to find anything. The Kindle edition's index needs to be redone with the locators.
