Putnam's Homemaker Series


No more unique or welcome gift for a brain-fagged house-wife can be imagined than this little series of handbooks in their quaint plaid gingham covers, comprising any number of tried recipes.

I. What To Have For Breakfast

"One might conscientiously use a number of enthusiastic adjectives about Olive Green's Guide to the Cheerful Lift. It is a small book, but any one who looks it over can find a hundred reasons for owning it, and, failing to publish it, the board of Home Missions lost an opportunity."-Life. N. Y.

"One of the sanest brochures on the food question yet published."-N. Y. Evening Mail.

"Whoever follows its laws will bring peace to her household and kindly fame to herself. It is the best book in all the world with which to start the fresh day, and an intelligent application of its rules may set in motion the very springs of heroism, joy and achievement."-Chicago Tribune.

II. Everyday Luncheons

"Here are 365 menus, one for every day in the year, besides a variety of recipes that have a toothsome aspect in print and have not been found wanting in practice, as we are assured. There are some introductory words on 'Luncheons, Wise and Foolish,' which contain sound philosophy with a coating of humor."-Pittsburg Gazette.

"A helpful companion for any woman seeking to vary her menus. The recipes are economical in many cases new, and in all cases practical."-

The Congregationalist.

III. One Thousand Simple Soups

"Its information is all practical and every recipe contained within its covers is well worth trying. It will prove a valuable addition to the domestic shelf of any housewife whether she be her own cook or not."-Newark Advertiser.

"The recipes are well-classed and are distinctly good. The neat little volume deserves a prominent place upon the kitchen shelf."-Chicago Record-Herald.
