Not having much time or energy at the end of each day to cook, I found I needed help putting something together with the ingredients I had at hand. I found help from my old Betty Crocker “Big Red” cookbook. What I like best is that everyday ingredients are used so when I buy an herb or spice for one recipe I know I’ll use it again. Here is a list of Betty Crocker cookbooks either at your local San José Library branch or available for request. You’ll see that Betty has changed with the times to include more healthful recipes as well as topical cookbooks. You can even find a “biography” of Betty, Finding Betty Crocker by Susan Marks, in which was quite fun to learn how Betty Crocker was “born.” In the meanwhile, I’m going to watch my mailbox for Betty’s 11th edition of her “Big Red.” I’ve pre-ordered it and I can’t wait to see which of my favorite recipes have been kept and which have been revamped! Meet you in the kitchen!
