My grandma, Moms, has been baking out of this 1961 Betty Crocker cookbook for as long as I can remember. Her copy of the book is on the right. And as you can see it is in bad shape. It has been though a lot of buttered fingers and sugar coated spoons.
I went on the hunt back in December to see if I couldn’t find her a new copy that actually had a cover and didn’t have to be kept in a plastic bag so that the pages wouldn’t go missing, or worse, end up baked in a cake. 😉
Well, it seemed like everyone else had the same idea in December…Christmas gifts for grandma. So, I waited it out a couple more months. I bid on a couple of copies and finally won one (on the left)! 🙂
I surprised Moms with the ‘newer’ copy of her favorite cookbook the other day. You should have seen the smile on her face. 🙂 Just be prepared for some good recipes coming your way from this beauty of a book.
Thank you Betty Crocker. You ‘rock’.
