RECIPES TRIED AND TRUE.

COMPILED BY THE LADIES' AID SOCIETY OF THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, MARION, OHIO.

"We may live without poetry, music, and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks." OWEN MEREDITH

MARION, OHIO: PRESS OF KELLEY MOUNT. 1894.

Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1894 by the LADIES' AID SOCIETY OF THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, MARION, OHIO. In the Office of the Librarian of Congress at Washington.

To the Mothers, Wives, Sisters and Sweethearts of the Good Men of America this Book is Dedicated by the "TRUE BLUES."

PREFACE.

Although in putting forth this little book we do not claim that we are filling a "Long felt want," yet we do feel that its many tried and true recipes from our own housekeepers will be very welcome. We also believe that it will not only be welcomed by those who recognize the names and merits of the various contributors, but by all housekeepers, young and old. There can never be too many helps for those who, three times a day, must meet and answer the imperative question, "What shall we eat?"

To the many who have helped so willingly in the compilation of this book, the Editorial Committee would extend a grateful acknowledgment.

For the literary part of the work, we would beg your indulgence, since for each of us it is the first venture in the making of a book.
