75 Years of All Time Favorites

I picked up 75 Years of All Time Favorites from Better Homes and Gardens printed in 1997, at a used book store – and found it to be a good investment.  Most of the vintage recipes are actually from the ‘70’s, ‘80’s and ‘90’s – not really vintage to Myrna and I, but there are a few from the Thirties through the Fifties too.  The recipes are all good, and reflect the time period.  They also include some historical notes about food, appliances, and cooking, and winner recipes from their long-running food contest. 
The photos are excellent, and, as always, the recipes work, with clear directions.  The only problem we had was finding something we haven’t already made in a book full of old favorites that were already in our recipe box.
