Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book! Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book, 1948 version of the De Lux Edition, published by the Meredith Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa. Tab indexed. Binder edition. The binder cover is in excellent condition. The pages are sometimes worn, but they are all clean. Spine cover mended with librarian’s tape. Lots of general use, but all the pages are here. The original owner of this cookbook must have been a devoted cook. She also must have been a very tidy cook!

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.
