TO the modern wide-awake, twentieth-century woman efficiency in household matters is quite as much a problem as efficiency in business is to the captains of industry.
How to make pure food, better food and to economize on the cost of same is just now taxing
the attention and ingenuity of domestic science teachers and food experts generally. The average housewife is intensely interested in the result of these findings, and must keep in touch with them to keep up with the times and run her home in an intelligent and economical as well as healthful routine.
The eternal feminine question is, "What shall we have for dinner to-day?" It is not always the
easiest thing in the world to think of a seasonable menu, nor to determine just the right
combination that will furnish a meal appetizing and well-balanced in food values. Furthermore,
both the expense and the amount of work entailed in preparation must be considered.
This Cook Book is especially designed to meet just that pressing daily need of the housewife.
It presents for her guidance a menu for every Sunday dinner in the year; it suggests dishes which
are seasonable as well as practical; it tells in a simple, intelligent manner just how these dishes can be made in the most wholesome and economical form; and the recipes have all been especially made for this book and tested by that eminent expert, Mrs. Elizabeth O. Hiller.
The title of "52 Sunday Dinners" has been given the book because Sunday dinners as a rule are a little more elaborate than the other dinners of the week, but from these menus may be gleaned helpful hints for daily use.
