The fact that Betty Crocker is an utter fabrication, albeit dating back to the 1920's, by General Mills, has never endeared her to me! Fanny Farmer, on the other hand, was an actual woman who revised the Boston Cooking School book and added standard measurements to recipes.


Betty's book was my Mom's Bible in the late 50's and 60's---apparently today's Betty has lost her blue eyes and morphed into a brown skinned younger gal who may actually be big into veggie recipes. "Cooking Light" is practical and easy, and thus very 21st century, I think.
