Continuing with the theme of pleasing one’s husband through food, here’s another winning recipe book, Meat in the Meal for Health Defense, from 1942. The cookbook offers a range of thrifty recipes sure to make one’s man cheer.

Recipes include: Frankfurter Salad Bowl, Defense Scrapple, Bacon Waffles, Meat Stuffed Potatoes, and, of course, lots of steaks and chops, with generous proportions to please the men!!

This unique illustration (complete with flat, ribbon arms) was by John Howard (a Life magazine illustrator).
