My mom received this Betty Crocker cookbook for a wedding shower present from her grandmother in 1973. As you see it’s seen better days. She’s wanted a new one for a few years. On one of our adventures, I came across one at an antique store, VSK Emporium, Frewsburg, NY. The book was almost in perfect condition. She got the newer one and she passed down the old version to me. I learned how to cook as a kid from this book, which is why it probably looks the way it does.
