There are lots of other Betty Crocker cookbooks, of course - but this post is specifically about this series of smaller format spiral bound books. The Cook Book For Boys and Girls was first printed in 1957 - we grew up with this little book! We even used ideas out of this book for some of our 4-H demonstrations. It's my favorite. Good And Easy is from 1954.
Guide To Easy Entertaining, 1959, and Dinner For Two, 1958:
Betty Crocker's Party Cookbook, 1960, and Outdoor Cook Book, 1961:
And also the Cooking Calendar from 1962:
I think I have all of the ones in this series. The larger format spiral books were printed later - they're great too. These little books are just full of simple and practical recipes- and they're GOOD! I also like the illustrations and the color photos. There's a reason why Betty Crocker has been around so long!
