Summary of the Book:
Celebrate country cooking with over 100 quintessentially American recipes.
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 fun, special occasions, and meals just-like-Mom-used-to-make for generations, including:
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Apple-Smothered Pork Chops
Beef Stew with Dumplings
Country Corn Fritters
Collard Greens and Bacon
Home-Fried Sausage Casserole
Chocolate Chip Pancakes
With a flexi-bind format that stays open while you cook, Country Kitchen Cookbook provides excellent recipes for anyone who’s a fan of bacon, cheese, buttermilk, savory casseroles, the sweetest pies, or anything deep fried. Perfect for hanging around at home or inviting guests for a late, light supper, there is a recipe for everything, from simple meals and snacks to elaborate four-course dinner party showstoppers.
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
