Mary Blake Favorite Recipes
The front cover shows a square dish of "Tasty Beef and Corn Bread" with three cups of coffee on a green tablecloth. There are carnations in the upper left, a fruit bowl in the lower left and salt and pepper shakers beside the dish. The title is in black and red on a bright yellow recipe card in the lower right. The back is dark blue, turquoise and green with round white circles promoting the "Burns and Allen" TV show and "When a Girl Marries" radio show. Below is a white recipe card with information to send 35¢ for a copy of "The Cook's Handbook." The front end page has a brief message from Mary Blake beside five white recipe cards with the table of contents: Main Dishes, Sauces, Baking, Desserts and Puddings and Miscellaneous. There are color photographs with some recipes and drawings of foods and cooking utensils on most pages.
