They don’t make recipe books like they used to

I found this great 1933 vintage “Balanced Recipes by Pillsbury” in a stamped aluminum Art Deco binder. I think it’s rare to find a book that looks like an appliance, and this is definitely a collection that can take a good beating in the kitchen. The previous owner made good use of the binder by handwriting and typing their own recipes in the appendix. One of the last pages in the binder reads:

Additional copies of this ultra-modern cook book may be obtained by mailing $1.25 or you need send only $1.00 if you include a recipe slip from a sack of Pillsbury Best Flour.
