Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book, 1941, 1946, As-If-New Condition: Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book, the 1941, 1946 De Luxe Edition. This binder edition is from the 1946 seventh printing published by Meredith Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa. Three-ring binder edition. Binder cover is completely clean, with very minor shelf wear. Bottom corners are ever-so-slightly bumped. Inside the cover pages are completely clean. Pages are uniformly tanned, especially at the edges. And, they are all completely clean and clear. Tabs are perfect, even the one for the cookie chapter! (I hope you can tell that from the image.) You will never find a better copy of this 1946 Better Homes!
At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
