Vintage Thingie Thursday: Betty Crocker’s Hostess Cookbook

On this Vintage Thingie Thursday, I thought I would share from my collection of Betty Crocker Cookbooks.

Today’s is the Hostess Cookbook. It was published in 1967.

First Inside Page. I just love the flowers on this page, classic 1960’s.

Page 4, Letter from Betty:

Page 47, My favorite recipe, Chantilly Cake! I haven’t tried making it yet, but it sure looks yummy!

Back cover:

Leave it to Betty Crocker to come up with the first really practical book for women who want to entertain. You’ll find a handbook of hostessing tips, 39 party menus and more than 400 recipes-for all kinds of dinner parties, brunches and lunches; for teas and receptions; for patio parties and spur-of-the-moment get-togethers; for morning and evening coffee parties; for special holidays. And every recipe has been tested in the Betty Crocker Kitchens and in homes across the country-your assurance of success.

Happy Searching!
