Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

5 Minute Recipes


This leaflet is a trapezoidal sheet folded four times to show labels of recipe categories at the bottom of each fold. The front has a drawing on a dark blue background of a boy wearing a hat and eating a waffle. Below is the title and author's name in white. Attached to the front panel is a yellow and blue coupon to send in for a free copy of Mary Blake's Cook Book. Recipes include soups, dressing and sauces, as well as desserts. The first inside panel introduces "Time Saving Recipes": "When 'hubby' telephones at the last minute that he is just starting home and is bringing a friend to dinner, the thoughtful housewife refuses to get flustered for she is prepared for just such an emergency." Recipes follow for soups, meats and fish, desserts, vegetables, dressings and sauces, specialties and beverages. This leaflet was also published with a different front panel and was entitled "Five Minute Recipes."
