"These recipes and Household Hints are written very plainly, for those who have had no experience, no practice and possibly have little judgment."

Despite some oddities like "coffee" brewed from bread crusts, most of the recipes in this collection seem very straightforward and approachable, at least to experienced cooks. The modern cook may want to compare the baked goods recipes to some in contemporary cookbooks for oven temperatures and cooking times.
