Review First published in 1950, Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book
is now reprinted in all its old-fashioned glory. Betty immerses you in a time
when women were homemakers, cakes had at least two layers, and salad was
iceberg lettuce. You may hesitate to recreate what your mother or grandmother
probably cooked–if so, consider that back then we ate simply, in the days
before the word foodie was invented. Many of the recipes suit today’s harried
lifestyle, as you see in Six Layer Dinner, combining eight cups of vegetables
with a pound of ground meat, and Dainty Tea Brownies topped with colorful
chopped pistachios. Hundreds of black-and-white photos, animated drawings, and
quaint color spreads of prepared dishes aid you in using the recipes.
Beginners learn how to measure ingredients, choose the best economical cuts of
meat, and cut up round and sheet cakes for serving. There is even a section on
how to set the table. This loose-leaf book contains enough recipes to fill a
12-page, double-column index. Best of all, perhaps, is the “Shortcut” section,
where useful tips include cleaning a grater of cheese residue by rubbing it
with a piece of stale bread. These are interspersed with 15 ways to recuperate
from overwork. One suggestion is to lie down on the kitchen floor on your back
and relax for three to five minutes. Still a good idea, though few people have
a kitchen large enough to try this. –Dana Jacobi Read more About the Author
