The back cover features a color drawing of a bottle of Dr. Price's Extract of Vanilla, with two boxes to its side. Text added to the back cover reads Compliments Of White House Merc. Co., Trinidad, Colo. The title page indicates that nine of the country's foremost cooking experts contributed recipes to the publication. An index to recipes appears on the final page of the pamphlet. Recipes represent a variety of desserts, including pies, cakes, wafers, puddings, custards, and candies.
