From Modern Priscilla, January 1923:
“If a member of the family is late for a meal, I put the food to be kept warm into deep enameled cups without handles and set them in a pan containing a little hot water. One cover goes over them all and one low flame does the trick.” Mrs. H.R.K., New York.
“A small wooden potato masher is more convenient than a spoon, knife, or one’s hands for working the coloring into margarine. Place the margarine in a bowl, break the color capsule on top, and mash as one mashes potatoes.” Mrs. M.N.F., Vermont
“The discarded stone of a fireless cooker makes a good warming pad. If heated and wrapped in several thicknesses of newspaper it will stay hot almost all night.” B.O.J., Texas
