I had a copy of the "Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys and Girls" from the 50s, and I gave it quite a workout as a child. Actually, that's how I learned to cook with some assistance from my grandmother. When I came across a term I didn't understand, such as folding in ingredients, she would demonstrate, but then leave me alone to complete the recipe. When my cookbook finally bit the dust or disappeared somehow, I was lucky enough to find a fairly pristine copy a few years ago. I'm radically downsizing and selling most of my cookbook collection now, but this is one cookbook I'll hang onto--I don't know why. Perhaps when I'm really stuck for what to serve at a dinner party, I can make this Raggedy Ann Salad
Imagine having the time (or inclination) to fix THESE up for a sit down for 6!! but I bet it got the kids to eat their salad. Is that a Fire-King Turquoise Blue plate she's on??
Another cookbook in my collection is the "Good Housekeeping's Cooking with Susan" who apparently is a "famous" teen cook. The 68-page softcover was published in 1967. I was fearless (clueless) in those days and attempted to make "Shrimp Egg Rolls." I remember that it took for-ever. Lots of chopping, etc. In 1957 such things as pre-made Egg-Roll Wrappers were not yet available in the grocery stores, so part of the fun was making your own wrappers. Ahhhh, youth.
Here's a picture of the cover, the TOC, and a sample page:
