"Dining well on small means is an art only to be acquired by long experience, and the object of the following chapters is to give the result of sixteen years' labor and study, so that the way may be made easier for others just taking upon themselves the duties of a housewife." from the preface. Chapters include: Dinners; Company Luncheons; Breakfast, Tea, and Luncheon Dishes; Fancy Desserts; and the Gas Stove. This bookmay have been printed in the early 1900s since it includes a fascinating, but very short, last chapter that wondrously describes using newly available electrical appliances like a coffee pot, hot plate, flat iron, and grill to cook an entire breakfast on the kitchen table.
