Not the first Heart & Hand cookbook, but the one most people now remember as the "Old Heart & Hand Cookbook".   It had more than twice as many pages as the first one, with finer print so there were many more recipes, and they came from friends and relatives as well as Heart & Hand members.

These selected "receipts" are presented to you
With a great deal of pride - some are old - some are new.
Our book is in memory of other good cooks
Who in earlier days made the Heart and Hand books.
If you're fond of cooking and like good "eats"
You'll enjoy our unique little book of treats.
