Book Description

The kitchen is the heart of the home. So much of life is lived around the family table: We tell stories, review the day, pass on traditions, grieve our losses, resolve differences, introduce new loves, and celebrate holidays. In the preparing and sharing of meals we create deep memories that we carry with us forever.
 
In the flavor of Chicken Soup for the Soul, here is a joyful collection of heartwarming stories accompanied by mouthwatering recipes. Seasoned with heartfelt blessings, this marvelous book will help you revisit time-honored values and foster the sharing of meaningful conversation—and new recipes—at mealtime.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The authors of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul team up with cookbook author Diana von Welanetz Wentworth to nourish the body. Recipes for real chicken soup accompany others for pot roast and chocolate cinnamon rolls, barbecued beans and a myriad other comforting dishes. The recipes follow brief inspirational and/or sentimental sketches gathered in chapters with names like "Mom's Kitchen," "Love, Romance and Marriage" and "Men in the Kitchen." Drawing on contributions from cookbook authors and celebrities within the human potential movement?e.g., Jeanne Jones, Art Linkletter and Sam Keen?each feel-good recollection serves as a parable of a venerable quality, e.g., patience (Debbie's Creamed Corn) and appreciation for what one has (No-Depression Cake). The authors note that recipes have not been adjusted to make them "nutritionally correct" in the belief that "their love content outweighs their fat content." 50,000 first printing in cloth; 500,000 in paper.

From Library Journal

Chicken Soup for the Soul (Health Communications, 1993) and A 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Soul (Health Communications, 1995) by self-esteem gurus Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen have been on the best sellers lists for months. Now they've enlisted cookbook author Diana von Welanetz Wentworth for the Chicken Soup for the Soul Cookbook (don't worry, they decided against an all-chicken-soup cookbook): "deeply touching and humorous stories centered around food," with recipes. Touching or just sappy, these collections of Reader's Digest-style anecdotes have found an audience, who will be eagerly awaiting the cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cookbook for the kitchen and the soul! May 4, 1999
Format:Hardcover
If you like the Chicken Soup For the Soul books, you will want to have the cookbook as well. This is your chance to really experience the stories as you read them and then try your hand at the rceipes. I can almost smell the aroma of fresh bread or pies as they are cooking. I have tried several already and have gotten rave reviews for the food, but it is even more fun to tell the story to the family as they enjoyed the dish. I am already thinking of one recipe that I would like to share myself and I know as you read and try the recipes, you'll have one to share also.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare and delicious treat! August 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is the rarest of delicious treats: a book filled with tempting recipes, plus stories to warm your heart even when you're not in the kitchen cooking! It is one of the best gifts to give someone you love, no matter the reason...or season. I believe it will be the gift book of choice for a wedding shower because the recipes span all traditions and appeal to the novice or experienced cook. I've learned my lesson: now I keep several copies on hand when I need the perfect present for someone I treasure, and don't have time to shop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic stories. The recipes I can take or leave. September 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw this at my local library and just fell in love in love with the first three stories. I couldn't stop reading them. The recipes... I don't know. Some sound terribly easy and some sound absolutely delicious. Haven't tried any of them, don't know if I will. But the stories are great. If you love Chicken Soup for the Soul series (which I've been a HUGE fan of since the 1990s), you'll probably enjoy this book. If you're buying it as a cookbook, DON'T. Give it as a gift to someone who loves well-written sappy, sentimental stories who MIGHT enjoy cooking or memories associated with food. I know I do!

3.0 out of 5 stars So-So January 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the Chicken Soup series and also enjoy reading cookbooks so this seemed a natural choice. The seller accurately described the condition of the book and shipped in a timely manner. The stories were "ok" as were the recipes. The recipes were pretty common - slight variations of most cookbook recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicken Soup January 14, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are so many of these that it is difficult to choose just 1.
The stories are always varied and have a great purpose for telling
them. This has the added "flavor" of some very good recipes as well.

I always enjoy having a book I can turn too for guidance and encouragement. I have most of these books in hardback form, but I enjoy being able to carry them all with me on my Kindle whereever I go. I especially enjoyed the recipes.
