This is a small, all purpose cookbook, of the Joy of Cooking variety. There is an extensive section on kitchen hints and menu planning in the beginning of the book. The recipes cover the full range from appetizers to jams and jellies. These are pretty close to fool-proof, though obviously from a different era.
If you're into food history it is worth picking up a copy. It is a stand alone book, but it is frozen in time as well. Even more fascinating is the full cookbook these recipes are from, which is long out of print. This is a fine substitute, though.

Most of them do not have an execesive amount of fat when eaten in small portions, as long as you go easy on the sweets. Just remember it is an old book, so some names of things have changed. For example, when it calls baking soda, it says soda. When it says shortening, it in fact means any type of fat including butter, which I was glad to read because I like the flavore of butter in certain things.

Additioally, I do not think you have to sift all purpose flour anymore unless it says sift after measuring, as now flour is sifted but it cannot hurt to do so. I noticed another reviewer said they used the technique in this book for making the famous toll house chocolate chip cookies (called chocolate crunch.Read more ›
