This was my grandmother's cookbook, it's packed to the gills with cut out recipes, cartoons, old Indianapolis Star articles, and a post card from my great-grandmother saying that she forgot to tell her how much salt to put in the pickles (no phone!). This is a comprehensive cookbook - covering a gamut of recipes.
Mine says it was published in 1948!
I love this - and if I can't find a recipe - you can bet your buttons, it's in there.

My mother's cookbook, printed in 1950 and a cherished family heirloom. I love this book even though I am not a cook and seldom actually use any of its recipes. It is a handy reference and a nice diversion for a few hours.

Recommends it for: someone that wants to get (like) really fancy in the kitchen
Shelves: cookbook, own
Not so keen on this cookbook... We have referred to it only a handful of times in the past six years -- and even then, not before exhaustively searching through The Joy of Cooking and/or heuristically experimenting within our culinary comfort zone.

They call this one an "Encyclopedic Cookbook" and it's easy to see why. They're trying to cover everything in the kitchen -- every technique, every core recipe, every possible substitution... I could see how this might be a handy reference. But it a

Excellent book. Comprehensive. I have the 1971 edition orginally copyrighted in 1948 (edited by Ruth Berolzheimer b1886-d1965), so it's filled with wonderful retro-recipes, menu plans and basic cooking instructions that are glossed over in modern cookbooks. It's also falling apart from decades of delicious use. I have perused the newer versions of this book, but they lack the domestic charm of this mid-century recipe treasure trove. I prefer this all-in-one cookbook over Joy of Cooking.

This book was first published in the 1950s and not much if anything has changed since its first publication. There are a lot of things that are pretty dated about this book, but it serves as an excellent history book for culinary arts.

Bonus: It has amusing recipes like how to roast an opossum!
