Anyone have a 1978 or 1986 edition of the Betty Crocker Cookbook?

41 posts in this topic

and i think one of the recipes in this book involved taking green food coloring and putting it on coconut shavings on some kind of weird hamburger.

Here is just such a recipe from Betty Crocker. No mention of which book it originally appeared in, but sounds like you're on the right track.

Betty Crocker Hamburger Cookies

thanks james, that looks familiar to me, i'll do more research on it.

On a whim I looked at Betty Crocker's Cookbook For Boys & Girls, 1975 edition, at the public library. There's a pic of the Monopoly playing board, with the Go space, on page 115. Your public library must have a different edition.

Other info about the 1975 edition: On the cover is a pic of kids eating squares of chocolate cake. Published by Golden Press, NY, NY; printed by Western Publishing Company, Racine, Wisconsin; Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 74-23006.

Your public library may be able to find this book on interlibrary loan. Or you could try buying it on Abebooks.

The great thing about barbeque is that when you get hungry 3 hours later....you can lick your fingers

Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

The one at my library was the 1984 edition, so you may be onto something here. I'll do some more googling now. Thanks a lot.

I checked the index. No entry for "hamburger cookies" under "hamburger" or "cookies."

Betty Crocker's Cookbook For Boys & Girls was published for decades in different editions. If you get a list of all the editions and check them out (try the reference librarian at your public library), you may find the cookbook you're looking for.

I looked at mine and sorry no monopoly stuff, but thank you for having me crack them open! The ones I have were from my Grandmother and some pretty funny pictures and old-school stlye cooking in there! I have a 1969 "New Picture" Betty Crocker Cookbook, 1959 "Guide to Easy Entertaining" Betty Crocker Cookbook, and a 1954 "Good and Easy" Betty Crocker Cookbook. The best part was reading my Grandmother's pencil notes in the margins and dates when tried and modified. My mother has 3 other versions she bought from 1976 to 1985 that I am looking forward to seeing as well as the other two much older Betty Crocker cookbooks that she just isn't ready to let me have yet.

Looks like that's the name of the book.

      Greetings,

      I've cooked several recipes from Keller's "Bouchon" the last couple of weeks, and have loved them all! At the moment (as in right this minute) I'm making the boeuf Bourguignon, and am a little confused about the red wine reduction. After reducing the wine, herbs, and veg for nearly an hour now, I'm nowhere near the consistancy of a glaze that Keller specifies. In fact, it looks mostly like the veg is on the receiving end of most of it. Is this how the recipe is meant to be? Can anybody tell me what kind of yield is expected? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, kindly.

      This unfortunately titled book changed my life. I always enjoyed cooking and idealized Julia Child &
      Jacque Pepin. But I was a typical home cook. I would see a recipe and try to duplicate it little understanding about what I was doing.
       
      Cooking the Nouvelle Cuisine in America talked about a philosophy of cooking. It showed me that there is more depth to cooking. A history. A philosophy.
      The recipes are very approachable and you can make them on a budget from grocery store ingredients. I read it as a grad student in Oregon, in the late 80's I had access to lots of fresh ingredients. And some very nice wines, cheap! I was suppose to be studying physics but I end up learning more about wine & cooking.

      Here is the discussion thread.
      Here is the Amazon link.
      My first recipe was Mushroom Mapo Tofu p. 132  I was blown away by how good this tasted. Very spicy! Very authentic. I didn't miss the meat at all. I told Mr. Smokey I'd add ground pork next time and he said it didn't need it. Mr. Smokey refused pork? Ha!
      Definitely a keeper and maybe a regular rotation spot.
      If I had anything negative to say, it would be the dish wasn't very filling. The recipe is suppose to serve four but the two of us finished it off, no problem, and Mister wasn't full afterwards. A soup, or an appetizer could be paired with the dish to make a heartier meal.
      Note: I did receive a complimentary copy of the book to review, but all opinions of the book and recipes are mine.

      Started in on Rob's book tonight.  Nice pictures, interesting philosophy.  The bit about grapevines reminded me ever so much about my balcony.  My grapevine has been growing ten or twenty years, planted by the birds.  Never a grape, ever.  Only recently did I learn that unlike European grapes, the native grapevines are sexual.  This one is undoubtedly a boy.  He provides lovely leaves and shade, and something for the tomatoes to hang onto.

      This topic was hijacked from the Vancouver Board.
      What cookbooks do you love to cook out of at home?
      Is there a specific recipe that is your favorite?
      Or is there a book you just can't live without?
      If you have pictures, even better! Lets see how it turns out!
      Some of my favorites to cook out of:
      The Balthazar Cookbook - The Beef Tartar is amazing! As is the Chicken Liver Mousse
      The Babbo Cookbook - The Strawberries & Peaches with Balsamic Zabaglione
      Barefoot in Paris - The Blue Cheese Souffle looks JUST LIKE THE PICTURE!
      The Bouchon Cookbook - The Roast Chicken will seriously change your life
      Gordon Ramsey Makes it Easy - The Chocolate Pots are the easiest dessert in the world and tastes so good....especially with the Amedei #7
      There are lots more. Hopefully I can take pictures and show you.
      Hopefully this post can be an ongoing thing.
      I think we are all interested in what eachother cooks!
      Happy Cooking
