The book was written to support recent widow, Irma and her family. It was a family affair with Irma's daughter, Marion who illustrated the book and designed the cover. The original cookbook was written in a very conversational fashion addressing solutions to current depression-era problems. Topics like canning and pickling were featured alongside recipes for unique meats in an effort to be as resourceful as possible.
