Apple pie, hamburgers, fried chicken. Some foods just take us back home. They evoke the feel of summer evenings on the lawn playing baseball, winter gatherings around a roaring fire, spring picnics, and fall football games on campus. For most of us, good times and good food naturally go together, keeping families close and memories strong.

The culinary melting pot that is American country cooking accommodates the great variety of tastes and cultures to be found here, creating a range of specialties that can be called favorites either regionally or across the country. This wonderful cookbook gathers together recipes that have helped define family funspecial occasions, and meals just-like-Mom-used-to-make for generations, including:

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. There are so many recipes in this book that just make my mouth water. The Honey Chicken sounds amazing. I think the Key Lime Pie recipes sounds delicious. It me the feeling of home cooking and that makes me sitting around the table with my family growing up. This brings back memories of when I decide I wanted to take up cooking and pulling out my mother’s cookbooks. The pictures add to the experience and make me want to try more of the recipes.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
