Who knew cooking was all about the pleasure? Doesn’t this couple look like they are having a good time? You just know that the guy in the picture is just so happy to give his wife some cookware. The recipes are typical of the period and are not really that exciting. I am a bit disturbed about the recipe called Mock Lobster. Not sure “mock” anything is going to be that good.
Now go forth and experience the pleasure!

As a true Midwesterner, I embrace casserole cuisine. However, not all casseroles are created equal and this book proves it. Note the “surprise” casserole. (I think my mother had a similar recipe.) The other recipe worth noting is called “Ned’s Goop.” Looking at the ingredients, the word “goop” is fitting. The casserole staples always include a can of cream of mushroom soup, cheese of some kind and some kind of crunch factor, such as potato chips or bread crumbs. I won’t even comment on the calorie count or sodium consumed.

I think a good rule of thumb for cookbooks is that one should be able to identify the food pictured. Some of these old cookbooks seem to delight in NOT looking like something edible. Anyway, as we approach the holiday weekend, I am sure you will want to run, not walk, to the store and make some of these delightful treats for your 4th of July party. I am sure your guests will be delighted with hard-cooked eggs in jellied bouillon or jelled salmon.
