Make It Better!

The next two Mary Lee Taylor books emphasize how positively better everything will be if you take some of her hints. The books are Better Food and Making Good Meals Better (for 2 or 4 or 6). Both of these booklets are springtime editions (March - April and April - June, respectively) and feature large amounts of pink on their covers.

Front cover of Better Food for 2 or 4 or 6 - This ham (Stuffed Ham Slices) is pretty impressive. What I thought was gristle and fat is actually an apple/raisin mixture! The platter also contains food for the mauve bunnies. And, for the first time, we get a glimpse of Mary Lee Taylor on the cover!

When you first spy this gelatinous ring, you know this will be a good recipe. BUT, when you discover that the ring is 'Deviled,' then it becomes perfectly clear that this is a better recipe. Try the Deviled Salad Ring (possibly containing Macaroni Salad). Bonus: click on the picture for a recipe for Molasses Milk Drink!

This is a Chocolate Cream Pie. Posting random pictures of old desserts reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Mrs. Skinner shows Bart her cake scrapbook.

Front cover of Making Good Meals Better for 2 or 4 or 6 - Mmm, Cranberry Corn Mousse with Ketchup Glaze!

Truly ingenious - Macaroni In Ham Jackets. Fine for Easter - Or any day!

A beautiful jade green background... and Easy Icebox Rolls

Sego Fried Chicken, Creamed Peas, and very carefully positioned Carrot Curls are a dinner that is sure to please!

Finish it off with this pretty pink Banana Orange Dessert

Stay tuned for another set of Mary Lee Taylor books!

I love the bunnies staring at the ham on the front cover.

It kinda... creepy!

They look pretty hungry! I'll bet they devoured that ham after the photoshoot!
