All recipes in this book are here grouped under Quick, Medium, or Slow, according to the time they take. Everything under Quick can be prepared in less than 25 minutes, and so is specially suitable for breakfast or luncheon.

The table also shows at a glance what recipes call for milk, butter, or eggs, and what do not. The following abbreviations are used:

E = Eggs required (whole or desiccated). B = Butter required.

M = Milk required (maybe evaporated or powdered). E*= Eggs desirable, but may be omitted. *= Butter desirable, but other fat may be substituted. M*= Milk desirable, but water may be substituted. Made over from previously cooked material.
