Nice 1st printing of the 1961 vintage cookbook for a new bride or the modern day homemaker. The book is a complete guide... right down to the basics. The recipes are easy to follow, all necessary ingredients are shown in red type and the directions are printed in black.

Ooh, I found this info kind of amusing -- I can just see a young wife reciting it before starting her meal time preparations LOL!

"Meta Given's partial Cook's Creed:
The health of my family is in my care; therefore I will preserve as far as possible the nutritive elements in the foods which are delivered to me.

Stretching the food dollar is part of my responsibility; therefore I will take such care of foods that none will spoil. I will use left-overs with thought and skill."

Title: The Modern Family Cook Book
