Pillsbury Family Cook Book: Complete basic cookbook with the terrific added attraction of all the 1960s graphics, pictures and illustrations. Nutritional information, measurements, all that stuff, plus great desserts, a chapter on V.I.P. cookery, etc. BINDER version, not the hardback version. 528 pp. Later printing of 1963 edition. All the pages are clean and clear. Binder cover is in nearly perfect condition, with the spine cover reinforced with clear librarian’s tape. No spots or major stains, but the pages show wear, as do the tabs. Title page is missing. The is a cook’s copy, but the cook was pretty tidy.

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.
