have become a main attraction for me over the past few years so I always have my eyes open for them. This gem of a cook book
turned up in a box of books. It's a 1956 version of the Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book
. Its 472 pages have lots of illustrations in color and black and white. There are over 2,000 recipes. I like spiral, comb and ring binders. This cookbook is the 5 ring binding format with a handsomely illustrated cover.
Looking through this cookbook brings back fond memories of my Grammy's kitchen and Sunday dinners. Among my favorites were her pot roast and the hot homemade rolls that were often served with a pot roast dinner. Or beef stew with dumplings. And strawberry shortcake with garden fresh strawberries. Yummy!
The illustrations are so charming.
Oh and I found a recipe for golden rod eggs! Who remembers preparing golden-rod eggs in home-economics class? They are so easy to make. I used to make them for my kids when they were little and they always looked forward to putting the yolks through a sieve and sprinkling them over the creamed eggs and toast. I still love eggs prepared this way!
