A handsome little cook book compiled by the PTA of the Oakton School in Evanston, Illinois. "This is not intended to be a cook book...This is simply a collection of favorite recipes, offered by good cooks who have used them -- and who know them to be practical and delicious." The introduction also notes that recipes "suited particularly for children" have been marked with a star. The book includes a wide variety of cakes, pies, and others desserts, as well as meat dishes and luncheons. Something simply titled "Appetizer" calls for a spread of Rocquefort cheese on toast, topped with chili sauce and bacon. Blank pages have been included in the pagination, to provide space for the cook's notes and recipes. OCLC locates three copies, at the University of Illinois, the Evanston Public Library, and the University of Michigan.
