It includes not only her recipes, but also her tips on housekeeping, child rearing, budgeting, and on friendship. The cookbook also includes recipes from many of Bailey’s acquaintances and friends, including Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Bing Crosby, Victor Borge, Tony Bennett, Carol Burnett, Burt Reynolds, Perle Mesta, any many more.
