Project Betty

My first project for the new blog will be cooking my way through Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book.


This cookbook dates back to 1950, and was published by General Mills. One can see pictures of the Betty Crocker test kitchens, which even sported an Early American-style dining room.

The Picture Cook Book was obviously meant to be a handy tool for new housewives, as the list of terms used in cooking are in the front of the book, as well as a list of essential tools one should have in every kitchen.

My first recipe for Project Betty is not an appetizer. It’s a page called “Confections,” and has several recipes using General Mills products. Pictures and recipe coming soon. Watch this space!
