In 1895, Kellogg's commercial production of wheat flaked cereal began with 100,000 ten-ounce boxes being produced by the end of that year. Corn flakes were born a few years later. Today, Kellogg's is a world leader in the production of cereals as well as many other foods that are staple items in kitchens. The company opened their own test kitchens to develop recipes using their products. The Kellogg's Cookbook - with 200 classic recipes for today's kitchens - is a wonderful tribute to so many successful years of serving the public.

And what a book it is. Sure, the recipes use their products. Nothing wrong with that. They are devised for the modern cook who is looking to feed her family good food with a minimum of fuss and great results. Starting with breakfast foods, the cookbook continues with appetizers and snacks, then ranges through soups and salads, entréees, side dishes, desserts, coffee cakes and breads, to finish off with toppings and stuffings. They covered the whole megillah. Interspersed with the recipes are photos of yesteryear's advertising and products. A real trip down memory lane. The photos of finished foods are outstanding and make me want to start at the beginning of this book and work my way through page by page, recipe by recipe.

Cherry-Pear Muffins would start off any day right, as would Baked Banana Doughnuts! The Crab and Shrimp Appetizer Balls should go great for a dinner party starter. Maybe served before Crisp Orange-Baked Chicken, accompanied by Winter Vegetables au Gratin and/or Oven-Fried Green Tomatoes and Anadama Bread. The desserts alone would keep me happy for a long time. How about Baked Pancakes with Apples? Or Fruit Shortcakes with their bright fruits? Rustic Rhubarb Tart with Vanilla Almond Crust would thrill any rhubarb lover. And Golden Carrot Cake will be a real winner with my family.

The above are only a few suggestions. Once you have The Kellogg's Cookbook in your hands, find what suits you and your family and have at it (note that nutritional information is supplied at the back of the book.)
