When I left home after college, this was the one cookbook I tried to sneak out of the house. My mother caught me (darn it!) but it remains a sentimental favorite with me. I made the bread recipes for years after I finally found a copy at a yard sale.
Once I started playing around with this cookbook, I ordered another copy for my mother (who is a vegetarian). Even though I eat meat, I come back again and again to this book for many reasons - but the main one is the crisp section! Love that crisp topping! I've used that topping again and again with all my crisps (even if they are from other sources).
