Giveaway: Betty Crockers Cooking Calendar – A Year-Round Guide to Meal Planning with Recipes and Menus



I was out and about a few weeks ago and saw this little gem hidden in the corner of a local bookstore. There were 3 of them. After thumbing through it I decided to purchase 2. One for me, one for you. I love retro cookbooks because they remind me of all the happy times cooking with my mother, grandmother and watching my aunt bake. It also reminded me of the 1972 Retro WW Experiment blog I have been following for a few years now.

(Whether you are a weight watcher fan or not, the blog is a hoot to read.)

I’ve made a significant dent in reading mine and it’s such a fun little book. Originally I had planned to use it as a blog post planner but had felt I would never be able to write in it. I ended up printing off this printable for the front page and this for the back page to make my own planner thanks to Pinterest. I used my empty Organizher planner by Mead I purchased a few years ago.

I also had no real intention of using YUM as a giveaway site but this book is so cute, I just have to share it with my readers (all 9 of you 😉 ) Besides, YUM is so new – it can’t hurt. This is not a sponsored giveaway. It’s just me sharing a cute treasure I found.

Here are a few pics of what the inside looks like . This is an exact replica of the 1962 version of the book and there is even a little note on the first page under the copyright. “Facsimile Edition: 2009”

    1. Me too! I’m stealing my moms Betty Crocker book from when I was a kid. I have read through it so many times. I also bought another one when I bought the planners called “Betty Crockers Guide to Easy Entertaining: How to Have Guests – And Enjoy Them.” I’ve been so busy I haven’t even ripped the plastic off and opened it up. It’s another retro reproduction like the meal planner.

  1. I thought the book looked familiar and had to go take a look. I owna copy of the original book. Just when I think about getting rid of books in my collection I find a reason not to.

    Just found your site and so far I like it!

  2. I will give it to my friend. Her family recently grew by 3, two of them teenagers, and she is having a hard time cooking for so many people!

  3. Well, I already won something from your site recently but… I figured I should go ahead and enter this, promote it and your site to help out – and – if I win *this* I would gift it to my daughter who has recently begun her own kitchen experiments 🙂

    1. Different site, doesn’t count 😉 lol. I think she’d really enjoy it. It’s been a lot of fun for me to go through and read my copy. I just don’t have the heart to write in it.
