I have a 1970's edition of Julia's The French Chef Cookbook.
I have made just about every recipe in her book....including croissants (a disaster) and brioche (another disaster) before I realized that I could buy them in my village boulangerie! I finally mastered both. The book has traveled around the country and across the Atlantic many times. I also have Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book
from 1950. My father gave it to my mother when they got married, I guess he wanted to eat well.....he sure did! The inscription on the first page says, " To Thelma with all my love, Mike"
