Back when Margaret got her unexpectedly large Christmas bonus, I allowed myself one extravagance: on eBay, I bid on, and won an original 1943 BH&G cookbook chalkfull of all kinds of recipes and advice on how to use those ration points wisely, as well as, how to plan economical dishes in a wartime economy. BTW, these wartime BH&G cookbooks are much sought-after by collectors. Before I won my cookbook, I saw another 1943 edition go for nearly $100; and that one had a binding that was falling apart! I paid $28 for my book, which has a perfectly intact binding. Obviously, the original owner prized this book as a very useful item for planning her daily meals. How I wish this book could speak!
Anyway, what I want to do, for the adventurous culinary types among us, is to add a recipe from this cookbook for you to try out. So, light your stove pilots and break out the pyrex cookware!
I'll be adding to this thread, from time to time. I'll also include some of the helpful hints and advice. So, keep watching!
