Yum! With holiday entertaining in full swing, you might want to add a few of these treats to your menu. As you can see from the pictures below, there is a whole lot of interesting recipes to try. Of course we have a few molded recipes as appropriate for the era. Tuna Mousse and other molds and loafs are all over this book. The color selection ranges from a pale pink to a lime green. I shudder to think what these taste like. As a cookbook, the layout is terrible. Pictures illustrating techniques are not always located near the recipes. I had to search around for the companion recipe. Not good for 1980 and really not good for 2017.
How to make 30 easy, fast, sexy, cheerful maternity outfits that let you feel like a woman as well as a mother-to-be
Adams and Madaras
I have always thought that “cute” or “fashionable” maternity clothes was an oxymoron. This book proves my point. There was not a single design that even came close to a realistic choice for the average pregnant lady. Even if someone wanted to rock the earth mother hippie look, I doubt these designs would work. I won’t even try and guess how one would use a bathroom in under an hour with the example Dhoti pants. Maybe this could work as swim/beach cover ups rather than actual maternity clothes.
Cheap & Cheerful
Homemaking on a Budget
I think this is probably one of the worst decorating/DIY books ever. None of the illustrations are any help. Note the kitchen layout picture. No context. No room dimensions or anything that might help the reader actually do the project. This book was a waste of money in 1973, let alone 2017.
Also, I don’t think any of this stuff is particularly cheerful, but then I am kind of grouchy today.
