Submitter: There are some reasonable recipes here, but the whole thing looks really dated.
Holly: I’m all for dessert less than 150 calories, and submitter is right – there are some tasty-sounding treats here. The photography is very 1970s, though. Food blogs today have such gorgeous images; this can’t hold a candle to what you see online today. The dishware and the utensils are old fashioned too. Not retro, but old fashioned. The difference is in the image quality and design of the book. It isn’t the Better Homes & Gardens we all know and love today, presenting classic recipes on kitschy retro plates. It’s just old.
