How to Cook, Circa 1917

The recipes listed here were originally published in a cookbook called A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband, with Bettina's Best Recipes. I sometimes wonder how pleased Bettina's husband was with her cooking.

  • Liver and Bacon

    Mmm-mmm, breaded liver, fried and blanketed in bacon. Also, how does one cover liver in boiling water?

  • Peanut Butter Sandwiches

    Oh, peanut butter sandwiches should be safe, right? Wrong. But their attractive arrangement in a wicker basket makes up for everything.

  • Coffee

    Maybe I'm ignorant because I've never tried this recipe for coffee, but wouldn't you end up cooking the egg in the coffee pot?

  • Celery Au Gratin

    Here's a fun meal! Celery with melted cheese. Oh boy, I can't wait for supper!
