This came from a little cookbook put out by Calumet baking powder, Treasury of Home Baking. Back then if you mailed a quarter taped to a card with your name and address on it to whatever company, that company would mail you a 20 page (or so) cookbook that featured their products. It would take about 6 weeks for delivery.
