This is a Victorian treasury of cooking, household and medical recipes compiled by L. In the Preface, Yaggy proclaims. The recipes, which number over seven hundred, treat every variety of subjects, and are distinguished for their clearness, reliability and usefulness. So valuable are most of them, that the benefits arising from a single recipe will very often repay many times the cost of the book. Not only are the Recipes truly meritorious, but we have, while considering the various Departments of the book, endeavored to throw out such hints and suggestions as cannot fail to benefit everyone that will heed them. The book also reflects the author's dry sense of humor. For example, he kicks off the "Medical Department" with "12 Ways of Committing Suicide, " among which we find Number Two: Leading a life of unfeeling, stupid laziness, and keeping the mind in an unnatural state of excitement by reading trashy novels.
A great collection of cooking recipes, household receipts, and medicinal cures, along with a healthy dose of plain talk from the author. Who could ask for more?
