Peggy the nickname for Margaret perhaps it was published one way with Peg as her name and another as Marge. Just a shot in the dark I have an aunt named Margaret and most of my family calls her Peggy but sometimes they will call her Marge or Margy but never her actual name.""The I hate to cook cookbook" by Marge Bracken. "
I take it you don't have a copy, because it was written by Peg Bracken. Published in the mid-1960's and my wife - the excellent cook - used it a lot becuse it offered simplified recipes when she was up to her *** in little kids and I hadn't yet developed any interest in cooking./img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif
The recipes are simple but quite tasty. Bracken did NOT do the "Semi-Homade" stuff where you break your very own egg into a box of - whatever - and call it home cooking.
We don't use it much any more, but if you have access to a copy, make a batch of her "Gold Sauce" which is a really nice egg-thickened, mustardy sauce which is great on ham and any accompanying starch - potato, rice, or even pasta.
Try it; you'll like it!
