Earlier this week I posted my favorite cookbooks on the book page here on my blog, along with my very biased opinion on them. I've been cooking for a LONG time and have amassed a LARGE collection of cookbooks. I have thinned out the collection a few times, and have about 250 or so currently.
Today as I was scrolling through my activity feed on Etsy, I saw listed in a shop a book I easily recognized...Yep.. the 1950 edition of Betty Crocker! If you LOVE to cook.. I'd run and grab this gem! They did reprint the book a few years back and put it in a note book style format, I also have that one, I acquired it from my Grandmother, who purchased it when it came out, but honestly, it NEVER gets opened...I like my old, starting to fall apart at the binding, full of history, yellowing pages, antique copy! I do also have my Mothers copy from the mid-1960's which is literally held together by some string, it is missing a few pages, but I do still use it for a few recipes. That edition is also worth getting. It was before they really sold out to convenience. I know the current editions still have some recipes that do require actual cooking, but they are a far cry from where the books began.
