Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, 1953: first edition, sixth printing of the De Lux Edition, November 1953, published by the Meredith Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa. Tab indexed. This is a cook’s copy. It was heavily used, but all the recipes are here! The cover is in pretty good shape, with worn corners. The spine cover has been reinforced with clear librarian’s tape. The pages are all clean, BUT the pages of the index have had a hard time. They are badly tattered, separated from the binder and badly frayed, especially at the edges.

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.
