This lady needs no introduction. It’s Betty, b*tch!
One of the most iconic and trusted names in the food industry – and your kitchen – Betty has been helping North American families to dish it up for over 90 years. In fact, leafing through a well-loved Betty Crocker Cookbook is one of the first memories I have; no doubt igniting a life-long love of cuisine.
Do you remember selecting your first recipe to try? Skimming down the list of ingredients; figuring out measurements, and saying a quick prayer that it’d turn out alright? I do. And Betty was right there with me. In fact, Betty Crocker has released over two hundred cookbook titles (!!!) and sold millions of books throughout the world.
Chances are, you’ve had your own “Betty Moment” too.
And so I’m ridiculously excited to share some BIG news: there is a NEW addition to the Betty Crocker cookbook collection: “The New Edition of the Big Red Cookbook”. It’s (lovingly) crammed full of 1500 recipes! I’d like to think that answers the “What’s for Dinner?” question once and for all… or at least for the next four years. (Click the link above for a sneak peek.)
And if that wasn’t enough, along with the printed version, there will also be 400 new Betty Crocker recipes added to the Life Made Delicious website along with close to 100 brand new videos. Yup, ol’ Betty has been hard at work!
I’ve already taken a quick looksee (who can resist!) and am quite enamored with these Shrimp and Dill Toasts:
16 slices (1/2 inch thick) baguette French bread
1/3 cup chives-and-onion cream cheese spread (from 8-oz container)
1/3 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
8 cooked large shrimp, peeled (tail shells removed), cut in half lengthwise
16 sprigs fresh dill weed
Heat oven to 350°F. Place bread slices on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 5 minutes. Turn slices over; bake about 7 minutes longer or until crisp and very light brown. Cool.
Spread each toast with 1 teaspoon cream cheese spread; top with 1 teaspoon bell pepper and half a shrimp. Top with 1 sprig dill weed. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour.
The Betty Crocker Cookbook is valued at approximately $35.99 and will be available through Amazon, Indigo and Chapters, BettyCrocker.com and Wiley Publishing. I can’t wait to get my hands on this cookbook – and I’ve got a copy to give away to a lucky reader too!
