Many Ways for Cooking Eggs - S. T. Rorer

This anthology is a thorough introduction to classic literature for those who have not yet experienced these literary masterworks. For those who have known and loved these works in the past, this is an invitation to reunite with old friends in a fresh new format. From Shakespeare s finesse to Oscar Wilde s wit, this unique collection brings together works as diverse and influential as The Pilgrim s Progress and Othello. As an anthology that invites readers to immerse themselves in the masterpieces of the literary giants, it is must-have addition to any library.

Sarah Tyson Heston Rorer (1849-1937) was a fairly important Home Economist back-in-the-day. She was the editor at "Household News" and was a member of the staff for "Ladies Home Journal" and "Good Housekeeping". She published "Many Ways for Cooking Eggs" in 1912.

I've not cooked any of these recipes... yet, and am not a good enough gourmet to be able to make a decent comment on what the results would be likely to be.

This book is just chockerblock full of everything anyone has ever done with an egg. Some of the recipes are quite interesting, and sound good. There is, however, no order to the content, and no index. But, you will get some entertainment, and perhaps some nutritional value from this little book.
