A World Of Good Eating

My sister found this sweet little spiral bound cookbook at a yard sale - "A World Of Good Eating" Copyright 1951 by Jack Frost Studios:
Each chapter has recipes from a different country, with the most adorable illustrations as chapter title pages:
The illustrations are by Ellen A. Nelson:
"Tested in the kitchen of a New England housewife"...
...."and Published for the Enjoyment of Many American Families"
But the best part is... sister already had another one, so she gave this one to me!!
Thanks, Sis!

Neat! I like the illustrations, especially with the color palette used. I can't quite tell, but it looks as if they were water colored. They certainly have a very soft feeling to them.
Do you think you might try some of the recipes out on your husband?

I have this little book, too and I adore the illustrations. I just thumb through the book trying to come up with some clever idea to use them.
