Tabbed divisions for chapters like baking, “can-freeze,” casseroles, crock pot, meats, vegetables. microwave, pressure cooker, salads, and soups. Bisquick and other booklets are tucked into the pockets. The compiler also kept track of good recipes in her cookbooks, with page references.
Elegant, precise little cookbook. The compiler made all the extra efforts. See the page with the Valentine’s Day cookbook, with the magazine cutout included. There’s no name with the cookbook. The 1980s record comes off the garden pages with the pages dated 1981-1988.
