Throwback Tuesdays: Jolly Times Cook Book

"Simple Recipes for Young Beginners" reads the tagline of this small book by Marjorie Noble Osborn. The recipes will fascinate you, with such hits as creamed salmon with peas, Yum Yum cookies, and a personal favorite, amber pudding. This cook book doesn't mean to be humorous, and flipping through it you might find yourself buying a box of lemon Jello, mini marshmallows, animal crackers and lettuce for an attempt at polar bear salad.

If you follow the Google search from to Google Book Search, it yields nada, but brought up a page on for a first edition of the 1934 cookbook, for sale for $44, and a few copies available through stores starting at $9. Race ya.
