Mystery Cookbook

This cookbook has been in the family for years. Unfortunately the front page has been missing a long time. It would mean so much if anyone could help me identify this book. Any help is very much appreciated.

Could be an older copy of either Better Homes & Gardens, Good Housekeeping or Betty Crocker.

I would check some of the recipes in your book against those in past copies of the above three books. You might have to enlist the help of a friend who might possibly have either or both books or do some investigating at the library. Then, of course, there's good old Google.

Certainly appears that the book has been "loved" by your family. Don't you wish it could talk? If for no other reason than to tell you it's identity.

There's a great cookbook site called EatYourBooks, devoted just to cookbooks. They have indexed literally hundreds of thousands of cookbooks, magazines, blogs & recipes from the English speaking countries. You can probably do a search for some of the recipes there and find what you are looking for. They also have a small but helpful forum where someone may recognize it.

The full site has a fee, but to do a search and use the forum are free.

OMG! I decided to blog!
