The subtitle of this book is "Better Ways To Start Your Day." Kate Smith was radio-heyday singer best known for her rendition of "God Bless America".

Her magazine-style breakfast book is filled with recipes promoting General Foods' products like Grape-Nuts and Post Toasties.

We liked them. They have a little bit of crunch and a nice flavor. We even used extra Grape-Nuts to sprinkle on top at the end.
