Based on the popularity of this book alone, I think we’re justified in blaming all of society’s ills on Betty Crocker. Nutritionally speaking, this woman raised us. Well… that’s if you don’t count HungryMan® entrees, Sloppy Joe’s™ and Steak-Umms®.
The way I see it is…. if your cookbook is clean, then you’re not cooking hard enough. It should basically be a “scratch ‘n’ sniff” book after a year or two. And have lots and lots of crumpled, torn paper stuffed into it.
