The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book from 1882 in PDF

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book from 1882 in PDF

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book

Compiled, Edited and Published by
Dingens Brothers

in
1882

The object of the Cosmopolitan Cook and Recipe Book is
to provide the Public with a cheap but honest and practical
Cook Book, containing Recipes for the preparation of dishes
to suit all tastes and purses.

The compilers of this work have examined a large number
of Cook Books varying in price from one to five dollars, and
while they all contained some good Recipes, still they seemed to
a great extent to be copies of each other, most generally lacked
the details required to successfully produce the dish required,
and frequently seemed to be intended for persons of large
means only—that is, there was no attempt at economy.

Nothing’s More Fun Than … Eating Outdoors in PDF

Nothing's More Fun Than ... Eating Outdoors in PDF

Nothing’s More Fun Than … Eating Outdoors

by Milton Youngren

Published by National Dairy Council in 1958


It’s a book full of recipes tested by experience . . . cookery hints . . . camp tricks . . . outdoor merriment.

When you and your friends head for the wonderland of the great outdoors, everybody’s going to want to eat! You’ll get a real kick out of being able to produce a delicious outdoor meal – one that’s fun and easy to fix.

I’ve camped on the banks of the Yellowstone River—by the clear waters of Bright Angel Creek at the bottom of the Grand Canyon—on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain. I’ve toted a pack across Death Valley—carried grub along the Mohawk—enjoyed bear stew in Michigan—venison steaks on winter trails. You never need be hungry on a camping trip. At the end of each day’s going there’s the cheerful cooking fire the fragrance of food steaming in the pot—of Hunter’s Biscuits ready in a jiffy and maybe spiced with fresh, wild berries. Find your campsite, build the right kind of a cooking fire, get a supply of water at hand, and fill the air with that irresistible smell of food cooking in the open. There’s nothing else like it – From the intro by the author

A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband

A Thousand Ways To Please a Husband

With Bettina’s Best Recipes

By
Louise Bennet Weaver
&
Helen Cowles le Cron

Illustrated by Elizabeth Coldbourne

:: 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.
