Pet Nonfat Dry Milk Recipes by Mary Lee Taylor.

Published in 1954 by the Pet Milk Company of St. Louis, Missouri, this compact promotional cookbooklet served as an advertising giveaway to encourage the public to buy dry milk.  On the second page, the company asks the reader to ponder "how nonfat dry milk can help your family and you."  As Americans fell in love with convenience foods after World War II, more and more companies worked to develop new products to feed the frenzy.  "There's no mystery about nonfat dry milk.  It is fresh pasteurized milk from which only the fat and water have been removed.  When you put the water back in, you have delicious, highly nourishing nonfat milk for drinking and cooking."

The recipes in this cookbooklet encourage the use of Pet Nonfat Milk in its dry form for inclusion in breads, cakes, cookies, pies, main dishes, sauces, and vegetables. 

Measuring approximately 4" x 6", the perfect size to keep in the kitchen recipe box, with 30 pages of recipes and black-and-white photographs, the booklet neatly evokes the 1950s with colors and graphics that look and feel exactly the way we envision classic mid-century America.

Plan your next dinner party, from start to finish, with recipes that include nonfat dry milk and create an evening unlike any other!  Who knew that dry milk could be used in so many different kinds of food?
