{HISTORY}

Born from a Ladies Home Journal food column that began in the 1930's, this sparkling 1952 cookbook, Quick and Easy Meals for Two by Louella Shouer was designed to make cooking easier for the career girls, brides, working wives, young marrieds and busy homemakers of midcentury America. 

No matter what the skill level or the kitchen size, Louella dives into a host of menus for quick weeknight meals and fun weekend party fare. Seasonal, economical, light, hearty, quick and impromptu eating situations are all covered here with zippy writing and colorful expressions from a professional, working woman who also happens to be an incredible home cook.
