Don't you love them? I especially enjoy the ones with photos like these. I mean, who would eat this?
I found The Fireside Cook Book while junking in Connecticut years ago. It's my all time favorite.

Who wouldn't want to buy chops from this man?
Pasta is yummy.
Oui, bien sur!
"Four persons are wanted to make a salad ~ A spendthrift for oil, a miser for vinegar, a counselor for salt and a madman to stir it all up".
