Good morning! What are you baking this weekend? I'm thinking red velvet cake. It's been about a year since my last one. I think I will make a butter cream frosting instead of cream cheese. I know of a bakery that uses beets instead of food coloring. I wonder if I should give it a go?
By the way, do you like the new look of this blog? I hope so! This is one of my favorite photos from my private Betty Crocker collection. A former "Crockette" gave it to me.
Have a great weekend! And I let you know how the cake turns out.
Betty Friedan wasn't the only Betty who knew about "the problem without a name." In fact, long before The Feminine Mystique was published, women were writing to Betty Crocker expressing major domestic dystopia. Betty's solution? Create a club, the Betty Crocker American Home Legion, to celebrate homemaking. The Homemakers Creed (see above) was send to every member. Notice how the wording is genderless? If you want to know more about this topic, I write extensively about it in my book on Betty Crocker.
