Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is on page 321 of the 1950s original Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book. "It was created by Ruby Livedalen Peterson of our Staff." This is my Aunt Ruby (niece of Theoline Christenson Dahl) who is now (2008) 93 years young. She was on the original staff of General Mills which prepared, photographed etc. items that were included in the famous red cook book. She worked for them for many years and I always thought of her as the family "Betty Crocker." In 2005 Susan Marks wrote a book "Finding Betty Crocker". Much to my Aunt Ruby's surprise and delight, she was interviewed and quoted extensively for this book. It is fun to read about Betty Crocker - who was not a real person - but an American icon.
