Good Housekeeping Cookbook 1963

  The cookbook we are featuring is one of those types that every cook should have in her collection. The Good Housekeeping Cookbook published in 1963 not only has recipes but chapters and charts on, Family meals, Weight watching, When You Go Marketing, some very good and informative reading. 
  The marketing section is one of the better chapters of its kind. The hints are just as useful today as when the book was first published.
  I also own a later edition, published in 2007 that is equally as good. I however, find that I tend to use the 1963 volume more. 
  We hope that all of you will find something you might like to try and encourage you to look for a copy of the book, used or new. You can never have too many cookbooks, Right?

Here are some recipes from this book:

Pan Fried Liver and Bacon

Chocolate Almond Butter Balls

Cracker Crisp Salad

Fresh Apple Cookies

Buttermilk Pancakes

Braided Onion Bread

Spinach Salad a la Grecque

Banana Tea Bread

Butterscotch Cream

Salted Peanut Cookies


  1. I was wondering if the 2007 edition also had the chapters on marketing, etc?

    Thanks, Myrna!

  2. Julia,
    Not as much as the older book, but the first chapter is called basics. It includes information on pans and baking equipment they feel a cook needs, cooking basics such as measuring and cutting tips. There is info on food safety, refrigerator know how and storing food and fresh herbs. How to interpret food labels on packages and other odds and ends. It is a good book and Costco has them fairly cheap.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
