The front cover has a grey background with a framed watercolor painting of two couples dining. Outside the open window is a cow grazing in the pasture. The title is below the painting with an upside down pink carnation. The back has a small black and white sketch of a woman dining in the lower right. Along the right edge is a sketch of a pull cord. Inserted in the pamphlet is a typed letter from Mary Blake encouraging readers to send for other copies of this pamphlet. The front end page tells how to "lay" a table under "Table Setting Service" with an illustration of a formally set table with a white cloth, four lamps and a centerpiece. The back end page has an Index/Table of Contents. The title page has a framed description of the contents of the pamphlet and tells that recipes were tested by The School of Domestic Arts and Sciences, Chicago, Ill. To the right of the frame is a drawing of cows grazing. A page of photographs and drawings of the Carnation Factory and a two-page description of how Carnation Milk is made precedes recipes for beverages, breads, cakes, candies, fish, ice creams, icings and sauces, meats, pies, pudding, salads, salad dressings, soups and vegetables.
