If anyone has a copy of this old Betty Crocker Cookbook I'd so appreciate it if I could have a couple of recipes from it. I'm fairly certain it is the 1969 edition. It was fairly large, hardback with a red cover. The cover had a circle that was split into six parts and each part contained a food photo. One was a chocolate cake with white frosting; another was a fondue pot. If you have such a cookbook I would very much appreciate a copy of the recipes for three bean salad and for gaspacho cold soup. This was my only cookbook as a young bride and I remember leafing through it's pages and wishing I could make this or that recipe. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you so much for the recipes. I know it must have taken some effort to find such old recipes but I sure do appreciate it. I've been craving that soup and couldn't find another recipe that sounded like the one I used to make from that particular book.
