With the holidays fast approaching, I’m starting to dig through favorite recipes to get a jump on some of the cooking.
While it’s true that my cookbook tastes lean toward the East, as in Middle Eastern, Indian, Japanese… I do have my old American standbys for everyday and not-so-everyday dishes.
For instance, I still have this Betty Crocker cookbook my parents gave me when I moved into my first apartment waaaay back when.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I have dozens of its recipes committed to memory, from such frequent use. Sometimes simple and straight forward is best.
I will also admit that there is some pretty weird schtuffff in here that I can’t believe anybody made then–or now.
