Just a few weeks ago, I was able to locate another copy for my adult daughter. Now she can carry on our family traditions of wonderful comfort food recipies from this great cook book. I like to collect cook books but in all honesty, I don't get around to using most of them. The 'Woman's Home Companion Cook Book' is the exception. It is the first book I pull off the shelf when I want to try a 'new' delicious recipe for my family. Try the turkey sausage stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving. You will understand what I mean. Can't count the times I have been asked for a copy of that recipe! All in all, one of the best cookbooks in my library...if not the BEST!
It's also a wonderful source for retro recipes - some of which are kinda scary! This cookbook also has the full complement of retro cocktails, too, which is FASCINATING.
If you are a beginner or someone who is accomplished (like me), I say buy this book in any printing that you can find it. It is an ESSENTIAL kitchen tome!
I remember my mother taking it down, to leaf through its already worn & stained pages when cooking dinner or baking desserts. When I was old enough to start learning to cook, it was from those pages that my first tries at cooking and baking took their direction.
I had been looking for a copy of this old out of print cookbook for my own use for years. I finally tracked one down in good condition, when my dad called & asked me if there were any good book repair places near me, because my mother's favorite cookbook's spine had fallen apart & she was afraid to use it for fear of further damage to a family heirloom. So I bought that copy & sent it to my Mother instead.
Since then I have seen copies for sale here & there but always overpriced or badly damaged. When I finally found another copy at a reasonable price in good condition, I grabbed it up as quickly as could. I could not be happier, simply flipping through the pages of this clearly well loved copy bring back so many memories, I can't wait to start breaking out some of my favorites, Just need to start working on replacing the highlights & footnotes left by the last 3 generations of my family so I have a proper replacement.
