Foreword from 1957: "Today, brides seem prepared for all the problems of everyday life, such as supplementing the family income, ability to organize home and family efficiently, balance the budget, and hundreds of other challenging tasks. However, many of us can't cook. At least you think you can't. All you have to do is apply your same well organized method of doing things to the kitchen. Of course, there are practical do's and don'ts we have included in our household guide section for your handy referral. Let's face it, cooking is an important skill and, as soon as you develop your individual touch, a bit of confidence and then some imagination, the sooner you'll enjoy this inevitable domestic art and enjoy entertaining friends and family. I hope the following suggestions will help."
