Poll: Choose The Next Cook Book

Here's your chance to help pick the next book for Take One Cookbook.... There's a poll over in the right hand column; vote for your pick of the following:
  • Casserole Cookery: One-dish Meals for the Busy Gourmet, by Marian and Nino Tracy. First printing, © 1941; this printing, © 1949, after revisions in 1946. Promises to pleasantly combine liking to cook and liking to entertain.
  • Homemade Candy, by the food editors of the Farm Journal. © 1970. From the dust jacket: "Become a good candy cook and you'll always know what to take a hostess, what to send a serviceman, what to pass to guests who stop by for a visit."
  • Nothing Beets Borscht: Jane's Russian Cookbook, by Jane Blanksteen. © 1974. Written by a Yale sophomore with a passion for the (then) U.S.S.R.
The poll will stay up until Saturday morning (noonish, EDT); the winner will be our focus for next week.


  1. You know me: Candy!

  2. Did you vote your wise choice in the fancy schmancy poll in the right hand column of the home page? For, lo, it's...fancy. (Okay, I like LJ's poll features better...)

  3. Nothing beets a good pun. Had to vote for that!
