This 142 page spiral bound book is just full of helpful hints for all areas of the kitchen. A few examples are; how to prevent boil overs when cooking spaghetti or noodles; ground rules for cutting coffee costs; how to test fruits for ripeness; how to make wonderful whip cream; etc. There is a section on the best of helpful hints for kids, including safety hints and party hints.
The best of helpful hints for trash and pests is one of my favorites, along with helpful kitchen hints for making do and for when something goes wrong. This wonderful book covers it all.
The book was written by Mary Ellen Pinkham, illustrated by Lynn Johnston and published by Mary Ellen Enterprises. The book states that the first printing was in August 1980 and this copy is dated 1980. The book is in excellent condition with no writing, tears, staining or damage to the pages. There is a sight bumps at the corners of the covers. Almost not noticeable. This one will be a staple in your kitchen--or certainly will be a wonderful gift.
