Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Quick Meals For Busy Days


The front cover of the pamphlet features a color photograph of a partial tabletop, with individual servings of a whipped dessert accompanied by chocolate chip cookies. A bowl of fruit is adjacent to the dessert plates. Title text appears in a dishcloth-like designed rectangle - Quick Meals For Busy Days, then below that, With Recipes For 2 Or 4 By Mary Lee Taylor. The back cover is split, the top half headlined Just Eats And Sleeps And Grows, spotlighting Pet Milk and a healthy baby. The bottom half promotes broadcast programs on which Pet Milk is a sponsor -- Mary Lee Taylor, Radio's Favorite Food Expert, and Ted Mark And The Original Amateur Hour. Inside pages are primarily devoted to recipes, categorized according to: Beverages, Sandwiches and Sandwich Spreads; Desserts; Main Dishes; Salads; and Vegetables. Black and white photograph and drawn illustrations appear throughout.
