Wow my mom gave me her copy of the 1965 edition so I seriously hope this one has EVERY amazing picture reproduced. The cover shockingly says "Surefire recipes for the quickest way to a man's heart" which normally might gross me out but this honestly was a very nice book for figuring out how to cook in a small apartment. The place where the Lobster Thermidore recipe is found is where the book falls open every time.

There I am, shelf-reading and weeding my heart out when I stumble upon this book. Initially my angry feminist got her panties in an uproar over the subheading, "Bachelor-bait Recipes and Dazzling Ideas for Entertaining." But then I drank some tea and got a grip. Turns out this little gem was originally published in 1965. Reading the pages it feels as though Auntie Mame herself is dispensing the advice. I was taken in. Oh, and the recipes aren't too shabby either.

I'm still withdrawing it from ou

Somewhat dated, somewhat so dated that it's cool again, some interesting recipes, and a whole lot of cute.
