Format: Paperback
Beverly Nye's three paperbacks are among my most treasured, all-time favorite cookbooks. Every recipe I've made has been absolutely wonderful -- which isn't surprising since they're all tried-and-true family favorites preceded by a brief description of why they're so special. The selection is quite diverse, from wonderful renditions of the basics to unique ones, such as homemade dry cereal. There are also many excellent craft ideas and economical hints/tips. The books are very warmly written; you're gaining access to top favorite recipes which you're bound to enjoy as much as the Nyes do. You can't go wrong with these books ... incredibly wonderful.

I bought this book when it originally came out. I have worn out both of my Sunshine and Rainbow books. I love the casual across-the-table kind of way it was written. I liked that this had more craft ideas. Her books are the only "cookbooks" I've ever read cover to cover as soon as I received them. I've used some of her craft ideas as gifts. They were enjoyed very much. It's a fun way to learn how to do things. It reads a little antiquated, but remember these books were written before you had to worry about guns in school, kids could walk to school by themselves etc. I know my kids were children when these books were written.

I was so excited to find that though this book has been out of print for a while, Beverly Nye has republished both the Sunshine and Rinbows book together in a collectors edition! "A Family Raised on Sunshine and Rainbows" is a combined collectors edition of A Family Raised on Sunshine and A Family Raised on Rainbows. Both of these books have been out of print for quite a while so this is your chance to get both books bound together! [...]

The author of the book was from Cincinnati and I loved her books. I lost this book and I found it on Amazon and was so happy I could order it.
