Betty Crocker's Cookbook is 50! In celebration, an updated and expanded ninth edition of this American classic reminds us once again of the value of good old-fashioned comfort food. The original Big Red Cookbook was immediately popular with a postwar audience seeking basic cooking advice and simple recipes that took advantage of several then-new convenience products. The ninth edition remains true to its roots, presenting exemplary instruction, savory mainstream dishes (that still make use of convenience foods and the products of parent company General Mills), and, most notably, standout chapters on baking and dessert specialties. New to this edition, which offers nearly 1,000 recipes, are grilling and vegetarian chapters; up-to-date nutrition information; additional color photos; and contemporary formulas for the likes of Brie with Caramelized Onions, Asiago Bread, and Tandoori Chicken with Chutney.
Instruction was and is the book's strongest suit, and any cook--novice to professional--will benefit from its many how-to features. These include step-by-step directions with photos, tips for kitchen timesaving, and troubleshooting advice. The book also includes several comprehensive glossaries (those on cooking terms and ingredients are particularly good). Standouts among the vast recipe collection, more than 300 of which are designated fast or low fat, include old favorites such as Macaroni and Cheese, Old-Fashioned Baked Beans, and Lemon Chiffon Cake. A few newer ones, such as Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Bread, also qualify. Published, as ever, in a loose-leaf binder, the book celebrates American culinary know-how, a broad-based tradition of good home cooking, exemplary baking, and the conviction that food and commerce can meld to help people cook easier and eat better.

I was able to find an old edition at Amazon, and I gave it to a (much younger) friend who got married this year. Although she's already twice the cook I was at her age, I hope she will get the help from it that I did. If nothing else, the pictures are wonderfully vivid and dated, and fun to look at!
There are plenty of sketches to guide you along the way, including a chapter that illustrates each of the tools that would be used in the kitchen. But one of the best things about this book is looking at the sketches, talking with your child about how the people are dressed, why the boys are the campfire cooks and not the girls, how cute the little girls' dresses are and why we don't dress like that in the kitchen now, and so on.
All in all, between the recipes, the sketches, and the historical perspective, this is one cute little book at a cute little price.
