A Friend in the Kitchen; Or What to Cook and How to Cook It
Anna L. Colcord
Publisher: Good Press
The object of this work is to furnish in an inexpensive and convenient form, plain directions on healthful cookery. Special attention has been given to the idea of presenting such recipes as will tend to make the living of the family what it should be,—simple, economical, wholesome, nutritious, palatable, and varied. The author has tried to make the work sufficiently comprehensive to answer the demands of an ordinary household. The recipes for the preparation of grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables occupy a large portion of the work. Cream is mentioned in a number of the recipes, but while its use is to be preferred instead of butter, especially if sterilized, substitutes have generally been suggested where it is not at hand or available.
