For the new and presumably working wife, a cookbook which is designed to steer you away from hamburgers and toward a more interesting cuisine. Opening with time and labor saving devices, an introduction to the essentials- from eggs to coffee, this goes on to menus for the four seasons of the year, with special sections for those who have to cook on two burners, for those who want to entertain, and for the use of casseroles and pressure cookers. The individual recipes, which have a rather delicate aura, include such tasties as butterscotch pears, peach gingies, shrimpaloni and tunaloni, orange cheese ambrosia with fruit, etc. and may frighten you right back to your hamburgers. Louella Shouer is the associate food editor of the L. H. J. where she runs a popular column.
