Carol Dare Cookbook - State Magazine
There are a variety of recipes in the two sections of this book titled Yesterday's Recipes and Today's Recipes. Some of Grandmother's or Great-Grandmother's food is now impractical to cook, but makes good reading. Some of the recipes dated during World War II reflect scarcities of the time - certain sugarless foods, for instance. Today's recipes you will recognize with boxed, frozen, dehydrated, reconstituted, ready-mixed and ready-made included. But hopefully you will find it all interesting and a lot of it that makes you want to get 'right in the kitchen.'
In Carol Dare's Cookbook you'll find a section on 'cooking with herbs' but you will also find the traditional sections found in most cookbooks such as salads and dressings, Eggs, Cheese, Seafood and even game which includes recipes for Pot Roast of Bear, BBQ Rabbit, Cooked Goose and Squirrel and Dumplings. Each recipe not only lists the person who submitted but also the date.
Copyright in 1971 Carol Dare Cookbook measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/2 x 1 (approx.) and contains 313 pages. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being 'like new' I rate this copy a 7+. It has a little shelf discoloration on the page edges but the cover and inside pages are in great condition.
