1957 Vintage Children's Cookbook

There is not much to blog about recently.  However, I went junking today and found this vintage 1957 Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls, for 99 cents. I did a little online research and found the book sells for about $20 at the used booksellers. I was surprised to see that it was reproduced in 1983. There are some fun ideas, and maybe I will try a couple. It is kinda funny that I could have had a book like this as a small child. There are some lovely color photos and many great illustrations. I remember making the doughboys on sticks as a girl scout.


  1. Oh I love seeing this cookbook again-I got a cookbook for both of my boys-I'll have to check if they still have them.
    This sure was a bargain.

  2. I had this book as a child and used it several times. I should see if I still have it.

  3. I love those old cookbooks! I had a Campbell's Kids cookbook. :)
