no preview available


The front cover of the pamphlet features a color drawing of a woman holding a loaf of bread in her right hand. The background is blue, with white lines bordering everything on the front cover. Title text in red beneath the drawing reads Why Others Succeed. Text in the upper right corner reads Premium Lists Inside, then beneath that, "Home Made." The back cover features the Golden Gate logo (blue on yellow background) in an ornate circle with blue lines and some red fill color. Inside pages include recipes, plus premiums for silverware and pictures. The recipes are introduced under the heading of "Why Others Succeed," with reference to making bread. Recipes are included for breads, cakes, rolls, biscuits, muffins, cookies and sherbets. Note that a repair error affects two recipes on page 24 (but not any on the previous, backing page, 23).
