1983 – Reliable Recipes for Reluctant Cooks by Gloria Pitzer

1983 Oct – Gloria Pitzer’s Reliable Recipes for Reluctant Cooks

1983 – Reliable Recipes for Reluctant Cooks was written, illustrated and published by Gloria Pitzer (Gloria Pitzer’s Secret Recipes, St. Clair, MI). NO LONGER IN PRINT – having a 45-page, 5.5″ x 8.5″ format, this limited edition Cookbooklet, as Gloria called it, is filled with a collection of 3, 4 and 5 ingredient recipes (with options) that are totally reliable – sufficient to satisfy even the most reluctant cook; along with Gloria’s trademark humor, inspirational stories and “Food-for-Thought”. The recipes are quite basic, but the options are endless for expanding them into fancier dishes or different flavorings than for which the original recipes call. Plus, other popular favorites as well!
