Additional Details

Description: The recipes in this book have been carefully tested, and if measurements and general instructions are followed, the result in every case will be satisfactory. The author has endeavored to give clear and concise instructions for the best dishes of their kind; rather than take up space for repetition of the same general recipes varied only in flavoring, form of baking and other minor detail. 

It is not claimed that these recipes are all new. Some are original; some the gift of friends who have experimented till good results were obtained; some are old family recipes, never before printed; while others are standard rules that have stood the test of years and are still at the head of their respective lists. 


Condition: Cover has tears at corners of cloth. Back cover has some faded stains and inside cover has some newspaper clipping discoloration. Outside edges of pages have a stain seen when book is closed. Further good condition with crisp pages and no page tears.
