If anyone has that old book and you see a recipe like that, would you mind passing it along?
I must have 40 cookbooks, but I don't have that one.
Thanks

I had one many eons ago and lost it when I moved up here from Houston. It's been a major goal in my life to find that exact edition again because it had the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the world, and the new recipe kind of... bites. The only suggestion is have it to look in used book stores if it's really important. Too bad we only have a couple in the area and they are always opening and closing.

How many eons? Mine was given to me as a bridal shower present in 1974. The inside cover actually says $5.95!!

Also... it appears in a previous post they may have found the recipe.

Ebay. If you know the approximate date and the exact name search that name and change the dates. That's how I found mine was from '61.

Mine is from 1972 and the teriyaki recipe goes like this:

1/4 c salad oil
1/4 c soy sauce
2 TB catsup
1 TB vinegar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 cloves garlic, crushed

However, the kabob recipe in this addition does not use it. It marinates lamb in bottled french dressing (ugh).

I considered myself lucky to pick up this little edition used at a garage sale for a buck. It has awesome cookie and cake recipes thought I have used it rarely for cooking. Amazon does sell some out of print books and so does alibris.

I have a Better Homes Cookboook but it's from like four years ago. I generally make up my own merinades and it works out right. If I make teriyaki it's usually like this and I don't measure

Miren
Sake
Soy Sauce
Brown Sugar
Ginger(fresh is better)
Garlic
Onions(usually the dried kind)
Sesame Oil
Sesame Seeds.
Orange Juice

I never really used it for a merinade before but I'm pretty sure it would work well with the acids of the orange juice and booze is always a good meat tenderizer.

Mine has a recipe for Molasses Crinkles which I haven't seen in the newer ones. They are my son's favorite.

Thanks to everyone who looked this up for me. Even if these may not be the one she's thinking of, they all sound like they would make a mighty good marinade. I'm sure any of these would work just fine.
Thanks to you all again.

My old BHG (sure it wasn't that one and not BC? I get them mixed up sometimes) has one.
C soy sauce
C salad oil
2 T molasses
2 tsp grnd ginger
2 tsp dry mustard
6 cloves minced garlic

Ginger really gives things a zip, so along with the mustard, this would be a good one. You could use honey instead of molasses, or dark brown sugar.

Betty Crocker Cook Book
I don't know if you'd be interested in buying an old edition of a Betty Crocker cook book. I'm new here on the computer, but I just now typed in Betty Crocker Cook Book on Google and found, (among others), the l950 edition for sale. I'll also ask around to see if any of my "old" friends might have a copy. Good Luck!
