1984 Nov – Cook is a 4-Letter Word! by Gloria Pitzer

1984 – Cook is a 4-Letter Word! was written, illustrated and published by Gloria Pitzer (Gloria Pitzer’s Secret Recipes, St. Clair, MI). NO LONGER IN PRINT – at 120-pages with a 5.5″ x 8.5″ format, this nifty little book is full of well-balanced meals for the unbalanced cook! It also has goodies to take the monotony out of mealtime and turn the task of cooking into a treat – rather than a treatment! If you like to laugh while cooking or cook while laughing, this is the book for you! This book is also for the “I-don’t-cook-much…” cook! It’s the kind of book you can enjoy reading without ever having to turn on the stove! The recipes are basic and wonderful – for when you don’t have the time, energy nor extensive supply of ingredients – and the conversation that each recipe includes should leave you with a complete understanding of how to confront any challenge in the kitchen!
