With both food prices and interest in nutrition rising, here is a book "for cooks who prefer to make more cheaply a range of specialized foods that normally wear grand-scale price tags." The authors explain how to prepare homemade bagels, pastrami, pancake and biscuit mixes, marmalade, breadsticks, hamburger and hot dog buns, sausage links, catsup, deviled ham, graham crackers, lemon extract and pickles. There's yogurt too; four splendid cups can be made from one quart of milk. And none of these recipes contain artificial ingredients. (Harper & Row, $12.95)
