In preparing this book for the public our object has been to fill a long-felt want, namely a book to which perplexed and inexperienced housekeepers can go and be sure that they will find therein something to tide them over the emergencies that occur in every household. In compiling the recipes for cooking we have aimed at simplicity and practicability, avoiding, as far as possible, all foreign and ambiguous terms; claiming that, as a rule, American names are good and explicit enough for American cooking.
