    Bough a large format paperback book about 45 years ago called The Complete Family Cookbook. I've used it for basics ever since. Even found a second copy in a used bookstore. Always a great recipe!!

    Amazon has used copies. It was available in a hardback ringed binder. Just ordered one for $5.70. According to comments there, it started as a promotion from Chevron. Many rave reports by Amazon customers. Apparently, I'm not the only one who has loved and used this book for decades.

    Lee, I read some in this book. It was interesting and reminds me on how hard my Mom worked around the house. Back in the day when a lot of women didn't drive it paid off being close to the main street. I remember going with her to the Butcher, Grocery store and Bakery. It looks like the author of this book had a bit of privilege.
