Ah, a relic from a by-gone era! Pet Milk created some truly delightful advertising cookbooks in the 1940s and 50s, full of splashy color images, homey recipes and snippets of advice for the eager-to-please wife and mother.
“Husband Tested Recipes” by Mary Lee Taylor is no exception. I love the cover art – a collage of happy hubbies entranced by wifey’s perfect Pork Chop Dinner and Pet Apple Pie! This booklet is chock full of recipes for man-pleaser favorites, from cakes and pies, cookies and desserts to hearty main dishes.
I “heart” vintage advertising cookbooks, don’t you?
