Saucepans & the Single Girl, 1965



Saucepans & the Single Girl, by Jinx Kragen and Judy Perry. Published in 1965 by Doubleday and Company, Inc., Garden City, New York. Hard cover with dust jacket. Presumed first edition, first printing, no other bring mentioned. Dust jacket has a few dots and dings. Book is perfect. Cleverly written time capsule (witness the references to Dr. Kildare) with actually easy-to-follow recipes!  There’s a chapter on stocking the pantry and on buying wine, then there are chapters on planning weekend social events, along with the recipes to make good on the menus.

At 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.
