    How to skin a squirrel, eh? Gotta love these old-timey cookbooks! (My mother, who never in her life used a cookbook, to my knowledge, got The Joy of Cooking as a wedding present. She mostly mocked it.)

    It was the go-to in our house, and my dad got heavily into bread making one summer using it.

    A great cookbook.

    It's the best selling cookbook of all time (in the u.s.), and yes if you want to know how to make something that is mainstream in the U.S., it will be there, and usually pretty good as well, unless you are getting into more obscure ethnic dishes, and plenty of other books for that.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    They're just now coming out with a new edition of J of C, written by the granddaughter (?) of the original author.

    I hate to admit that I had Joy of Cooking, but felt it was like reading Les Miserables in French. I could get through it, but not without a lot of work.

    That was pretty much my mother's assessment.

    I loved reading Joy of Cooking although the most used cook book of my era 70s marriage was the Red Betty Crocker or maybe Better Homes and Gardens. Mine is Betty Crocker and I still go to it for some of the little cooking I do.

    Back to the topic....protein was pushed heavily as I was recovering at the rehab home for 7 weeks. I'm still eating 2 eggs a day with butter....I LOVE butter.

    The value of The Joy of Cooking is that it was the first widely distributed cookbook to lay out methods and materials clearly. Cooking guides of the time didn't do that. It is a format that we now take for granted because modern recipes use it.

    Irma Rombauer lived in St. Louis and self published her cookbook during the Depression. She sold it door to door to make money for her household.

    I got rid of my falling apart coffee years ago. I certainly didn’t read it because I don’t read cookbooks. But it was a reference tool and I use it whenever we cooked a turkey because not every cookbook gives basic information like that as yet how long and at what temperature to cook a turkey.

    I read cookbooks, and have lots (both print and ebooks)--I just don't use them. Maybe if I bake something, which happens rarely.
