:: THE DEDICATION ::
To every other little bride
Who has a ”Bob to please,
And says she’s tried and tried and tried
To cook with skill and ease.
And cant! – we offer here as guide
Bettina’s Recipes!
To her whose ”Bob’ is prone to wear
A sad and hungry look
Because the maid he thought so fair
Is – well – she just can’t cook!
To her we say: do not despair;
Just try Bettina’s Book

This is the first edition from 1917 and it offers a delightful look at homemaking before the advent of sophisticated appliances and fast food as well as the modern reality of women’s work outside the home. Unintentionally funny and historically revealing, the whimsically illustrated narrative abounds in simple and surprisingly relevant recipes.
