This is the 1998 facsimile edition or reissue of the original 1950 ringbound, hard cover Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book, published by Macmillan and General Mills. It's exactly the same cookbook as our mothers and grandmothers used, and used often, though there's a note on the cover page reminding us that Mom and Grandma may have used more salt, sugar, or fat in their cooking than we do today (the recipes have not been modified in any way). Every other page in the book is exactly like the original first edition. Buy this book if the one handed down to you by your Mom is getting old and tattered - it will keep your original from further wear while still allowing you to use the recipes from it.
The hardcover cookbook is 449 pages, fully indexed with tabbed section dividers. There are lots of kitchen and cooking hints, tips, and how-tos as well as well as hundreds of recipes. The book is in virtually mint condition and looks brand new with only one tiny corner bump to the upper front cover. Shipping will be via Media Mail - please choose the lowest rate for your zip code in the shipping calculator. No international shipping on this item.
