This Vintage Cookbook is one most loved by people who owned a copy in their childhood. Charming illustrations, a lovely story line and good, workable recipes.
It has hidden messages telling little girls that they must be obedient, kind, courteous, have good manners, take responsibility, obey parents, serve the males in the household and other quaint Victorian ideas.
The mother has become ill, but fortunately she had fulfilled one of her motherly duties by writing cooking instructions for her daughter to use, should the need arise. When the mother is taken away to recuperate, Mary Frances tries to use the book her mother had written with such foresight. But the little girl is quite unsure of herself and still needs help. Thus she is delighted to find that the cooking utensils begin to talk. She becomes a success in the kitchen and prepares a homecoming dinner for her mother's return.
