There are 350 recipes, all triple-tested by, and bearing the seal of? the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen. One chapter is devoted exclusively to "February Days": Valentine's Day, Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday. Of the 165 illustrations, 125 are in full color. "WATCHING O U T F O R DULIE," by David Westheimer (Dodd, Mead, $3): Westheimer, TV-radio editor of a Houston newspaper, has written a merry book -- a laugh a page -- about a TV junket to jolly old England to watch the filming of "Ivanhoe." Sam Spaulding, TV editor of the Houston Standard, is bidden at all costs to watch out for Dulie Hudson, bird-voiced, birdr.brained gal reporter on a competing paper. Dulie is on her first junket, she doesn't know the ropes, her mother was an old flame of Sam's boss who will fire him if anything untoward happens to Dulie. The TV editors, male and female, fly across the Atlantic, stay in London, hole in at a picturesque but extremely cold castle. Sam has to juggle wolves bent on devouring Dulie, and sirens bent on annexing him. "HORIZON: A Magazine of the Arts" (Horizon, 551 5th Ave., N. Y. 17, $3.95): Among the 17 articles in the January n u m b e r of this beautiful magazine between hard covers is "The Dream of the South Seas" in which James Ramsey Ulknan, novelist and traveler, recounts the lore of the islands for such men as Melville, Stevenson, London, Brooke and Gauguin. Accompanying the article is an eight-page portfolio in color of Gauguin's paintings. Another interest compelling article is "The Natural History of the Mermaid" in which Richard Carrington demonstrates that the mermaid, heroine of song and legend, has a unique place in the imaginations of men. "TROPICAL PARADISE" by Robert Sylvester .(Random House, $3.95): A wrly amusing novel -of a poor little rich girl, dreaming big dreams, who trips over the color line and takes a jarring header into the hard facts of life. The setting is a private resort in the British West Indies --organized as a tax dodge for Debbie Schofield by her financial advisers. Debbie's huge fortune makes her a natural mark for the anti- white politicians, but she resolves to prove her mettle by running the resort her way. Her desire to do the right thing for the people of her little island is complicated by the romantic urge she feels toward Showboat Eforde, a lusty mulatto who is the islanders' idol. It's all very entertaining. "THE ENGLISH CHANNEL" by James A. Williamson (World, $6): Dr. Williamson, authority on English maritime history and schol- arly author of books on British expansion, Elizabethan seamen and the development of shipping, has written an engrossing history of the English Channel. In lucid prose, he describes its part in the development of English life and history and the Western world.
