1963 Good Housekeeping Cookbook: This is the 1963 “completely new and revised version of America’s favorite cookbook.” (Imagine the editorial discussion over changing “Cook Book” to “Cookbook.”) Dorothy Marsh, editor. New sections such as “Let’s Have Sandwiches” and “The Bountiful Barbecue.” Hearst Corporation and Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc. 806 pages. Dust jacket shows lots of minor shelf wear, but it is now safely encased in Mylar. Cookbook is in mint condition. Definitely gift quality. Clearly its first owner did not use her cookbook.

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.
