These recipes do not suggest just how many they'll feed. This collection was for the housewife who had to be ready when company dropped in for the week or ten days. There are a lot of wonderful 'stretcher' recipes--for soups and stews, with suggestions how to cook a large haunch of meat and use all that is usable in it for a few days. Some of the recipes I have tried remind me of my mother's cooking and the directions sound familiar: take a good handful of this. Add a couple pinches of that, and my all-time favorite--take a piece of butter the size of a walnut. (Uh, Mom, would that be in the shell or out?) This work is a must for those who love to read cookbooks, and the price is right!

Enjoyed the book. I'm an experienced cook so I could use some of the recipes. An inexperienced cool would have a hard time( a piece of butter the size of a walnut).Published 4 months ago by donna lyons
