It's the book that started it all, the well-loved edition that first bought Betty Crocker cookbooks into American homes and hearts.

Packed full of practical tips, useful hints, and lavish color photography, this was the book that shaped cooking for generations, the book that people remember. Every recipe you - or your mother - ever wanted is here, from pigs inblankets, to Emergency Steak to Chicken Tomato Aspic. Enjoy the clever ideas throughout - twelve months of birthday cake ideas, showing how to decorate a cake to match each month's gem stone, pointers to make setting up a kitchen easy, or hints to make housework more pleasant. Feel a part of history when making Home Front Macaroni, developed during WW II rationing to stretch meat. Get into the spirit of fun with a Betty Crocker Cookie Shine" or cookie baking party. People who grew up with thisbook will want it for the memories; those who are new to the book will want it for its charm and its intelligent approach to cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-time favourite Girls in our Grade 12 cooking class received this book for use during the 1961-1962 school year. The step-by-step instructions helped us become good cooks. The hostess section showed how to set a proper table, etc. I have given this book to new young wives, and they love it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Betty Crocker's Cookbook is Picture Perfect I love this book! I found this book to be very charming with all the older/ vintage pictures as well as the recipes from yesteryear. I am a new mom and my mother never had a book like this, but I can only imagine the wonderful dinners that will be prepared from such a fantastic book. It is " The Original 1950 Classic Edition" I am smitten.
