Betty Crocker 1933 Bisquick RecipesI can just imagine how excited housewives were when they invented Bisquick. I didn't realize how old Bisquick was, until I came across this Bisquick recipe book from 1933.
If you think about it, this recipe book came out during the Great Depression. That's why it is exciting to see how and what they cooked just to get by.
"As Made and Served by
Well-known Gracious Hostesses; Famous Chefs;
Distinguished Epicures and Smart Luminaries of Movieland."
There is also a warning paragraph on the inside cover that says:
" These recipes have been prepared for BISQUICK only. Do not make the mistake of trying to use them with anything else."
