Hardback Cook Book: 1968 Pillsbury's (Best of the Bake Offs) Main Dish Cookbook
SALE PILLSBURY BAKE OFF HARDBACK 1968! I know many of you have probably seen the paperback versions of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Cookbooks from "several" years, but this is a collection of the Best of the Best!
This hardback cookbook, published in 1868, is called the Pillsbury's Bake Off Main Dish Cook Book. Inside, a portion of the letter from Ann Pillsbury reads: "Dear Homemaker: It's no accident that the work 'Casserole' comes from 'casa' meaning 'home.' Nothing says home and home-cooking better than a savory casserole, with its endless variety of flavor minglings and food combinations. It is a category where the homemaker can display great ingenuity and creativity. In the last eighteen years of Bake Offs, many exciting casserole ideas have been among the finalists and winners. We have taken our favorites of these, and brought the recipes up to date to meet the needs of today's lady-in-the-kitchen. The original recipes have been streamlined and short-cutted where possible. In some instances, ingredients no longer available have been substituted. But the good ideas are her, and easier than ever to prepare. They run the gamut from family fare to gourmet delights, with a special section devoted to recipes for larger groups."
Whoever previously owned this cookbook had a tag attached with tape, and at some time that strip of the top cover was pulled off. I have just gently used some clear scotch tape to secure it back to the front cover. Otherwise, it is in very good condition inside and out, with no other tears or rips to the cover or spine. The only thing it could use is a gentle cleaning on the back white cover, where through the years, it has some spots from just shelf wear more than anything, I would imagine.
There are 144 pages inside, with recipes for beef, chicken and more! If you realize what great sellers the Pillsbury cookbooks are, you will want to have this one. If you are interested in ALL the recipes from the 18 years of bake-offs, you may look in my shop and others for the annual bake-off paperback cookbooks.
