Common Sense Cook Book

Tested Recipes From The Junior Aid Society And Their Friends

The Junior Aid Society of the Presbyterian Church
Elbert, Colorado
Price 25 Cents (no longer available)

All names are believed to be from Elbert, Elbert County,Colorado unless otherwise stated.  This book belonged to my
great-grandmother, "Birdie" Mary Phoebe (TOTTEN) BRACE (Mrs. John C.), and was later given to my grandmother, Margaret 
Anna (BOWMAKER) (BRACE) RITCHIE.  Margaret must have used this book many times, as it has some of her handwritten 
recipes in it.  It then, in turn, was given to my mother, Estalene (BRACE) RINNERT, and then to me, Karen (RINNERT) PARSONS.
It is to all my wonderful women ancestors that I dedicate this index with love.

Prefactory Note:
It is needless to say much by way of preface to this book; it speaks for itself.  A
great desire for information upon the subjects of diet and hygiene has been awakened among
the people by a growing appreciation of the necessity of the preservation of the family
health by the use of foods that are simple, wholesome, palatable and digestible.
Every one of these recipes has been thoroughly tested and bears the name
of a member of the Junior Aid Society or one of their friends and, if the directions laid
down are followed, will be found to produce dishes that are wholesome, palatable and, what
is no less important, economical.  But while cooking is the main subject of the book,
and the most of it is composed of recipes for cooking, the advertisements are in every
sense of as much importance.  Each advertiser whose name appears here is a thorough
business person; his lines are complete and his offers comprise the most attractive
merchandise in the history of Elbert.  Those who have not yet visited Elbert should
delay no longer, but come and be fully convinced that it pays to trade here.
