The Joy of Cooking

That iconic book the Joy of Cooking is making people fat? How can a book make someone fat? Well... A Cornell University study compared the same recipes printed in different editions of the Joy of Cooking, (among other things). One of the findings,

"Of the 18 recipes published in all seven editions, 17 increased in calories per serving. That can be attributed partly to a jump in total calories per recipe (about 567 calories), but also to larger portion sizes."

-Cornell University marketing professor Brian Wansink (who directed the study).

Just a little something to nosh on...
