An Old Favorite: For the
best recipes, the newest cookbook isn't always the first
choice. Many cooks still turn to an old favorite:
Pillsbury's Best 1000 Recipes: Best
of the Bake-Off Collection. A hardcover book
published in 1959, it featured the best recipes from the
Pillsbury Bake-Off contests, which had by that time been
going strong for ten years. It's a popular and elusive
out-of-print cookbook, but worth the hunt.
