From the Foreword: "The Household Searchlight is a service station conducted for the readers of The Household Magazine. In this seven-room house lives a family of specialists whose entire time is spent in working out the problems of homemaking common to every woman who finds herself responsible for the management of a home and the care of children.... The recipes appearing in this volume are a compilation of those contributed by readers of The Household Magazine, those developed by its food specialist, and those submitted by manufacturers whose food products have been entered for Searchlight approval. Only those recipes which have met the standard of The Household Searchlight are published."
Recipes for every conceivable aspect of cooking, tried and true, the way our grandmothers cooked.
