The best book for a beginner cook and great for others, too!

I love this book! This book was given as a gift to me by my husband's grandmother, Dolly. The book was put together by her cousin, Selma Wight Beard. As Dolly states in her inscription, 'Selma's mother, Rebecca Stewart Wight, included the recipes in letters she wrote to her daughter after Selma became a war bride in the early forties and moved away from home with her Marine aviator husband. After Rebecca died in 1977, Selma found the letters, which she had saved, and decided to put them together in this book.'I started reading a little and soon found myself engrossed in the story of Selma and Dick. This is a great story book as well as a cookbook. As a new bride myself (and not much of a cook), I fully appreciate the cooking instructions from the basics of frying an egg to gourmet holiday meals. There are also lessons on how to be a gracious hostess and a good wife. Although some of the advice may seem old-fashioned, I'm sure it would do wonders on many marriages today.This book is great for everyone and an especially nice gift for a new bride. It provides detailed instructions on old-fashioned Southern cooking and great advice on how to be a better person.
