This is my favorite cookbook! First published in the early 1900's it came from a cooking class for women. It has been updated and revised many times. My personal favorite version is the 1976 version...it was my first cookbook! I have had to replace it once due to the first one catching on fire....too close to the stove...so be careful!
The nice thing about this cookbook is that it is a "scratch" cookbook. It also has menus, party planning, outdoor cooking and all kinds of extras like measurement conversions, substitutions, etc... this is a must for your kitchen!
