    My grandmother had one, my mother had one, my aunts had one (each), I had one - it was a traditional wedding present, my sister has one, sisters-in-law have one, I have one now, my daughter will have ...

    I was going to purchase this cookbook for my son last year for his birthday, because my copy has our family favourite "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" recipe in it, a classic that Better Homes has had in its in...
