Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Adventures In Corn Meal Cookery! Old Favorites And New Treats For Every Meal Of The Day!

Description:

The front cover of this pamphlet has a framed black-and-white drawing of a Colonial mother showing her daughter a pan of corn bread in front of a hearth. Overlapping this drawing is a black-and-white drawing of a modern husband and son following a housewife carrying a platter of corn bread. The background is yellow and white separated by a horizontal black line. The title and author's name are in black printing. The author's name is in her handwriting. The back cover is white and yellow separated by a horizontal black line. The print on the white side promotes Quaker and Aunt Jemima corn meals and tells why these products are pure and "spoil-proofed." On the yellow right are boxes of Quaker White Corn Meal and Aunt Jemima White Corn Meal. On the front end page, America's Great Gift To Cookery! provides a brief history of corn meal and its benefits. Each page is white with a large yellow streak. Recipes are organized by: Wake 'Em Up With A Surprise for Breakfast! (waffles, cakes, breads); Try These Supper Specials -- They're Thrifty, Too! (scrapple, hush puppies, shortcakes, tamale pie, polenta); New Trimmings For Your Turkey! and Fried Foods (breading, batter dip and French fried onions). Some of the recipes have black-and-white photographs.
