“A tour-de-force collaboration of two of Angelou’s major passions—writing and cooking . . . She also shares the poignant, pithy and sometimes hilarious memories that accompany each dish.”
“Poet and literary legend Maya Angelou is as mighty with her spoon and spatula as she is with her world-renowned pen.”
“Serious comfort food . . . The poet’s life [is] laid out like a colorful banquet. . . . Meals serve as metaphors for life experience.”
—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“The life of the poet-autobiographer . . . comes even more alive through plumes of aromas, a palette of flavors and a recipe box of memories.”
“Each recipe is thoughtfully conceived and made even more enticing by the personal history attached to it. . . . The result is as divine as the woman herself, full of flavor, passion and hard work.”
“[Readers] will find not only a wealth of dishes . . . but a close-up, personal glimpse of a compelling writer and her family.”
—New York Daily News
“Written in the exuberant tone of an impromptu dinner gathering.”

She gives recipes for dishes and then what can be prepared with the left overs, another bit of good advice to avoid wasting food and the leftover aversion that so many seem to have.
She gives stories throughout the book, so it is a cookbook to read, as well as to cook from. It contains recipes for , crown pork, prime rib, roasted chicken and 2 or 3 `leftover' recipes for each. There are also appetizers, a variety of meat based dinners, such as London Grill and Shepherd's Pie, some really different ideas for breakfast, some vegetarian dishes, soups, breads, salads and 2 desserts.
There are pictures for some dishes and most are relatively simple to make and serve and would please nearly all families and even friends and company in your home.
Being single, I also have to halve the recipes. Seem that all were made for having dinner guest.
The personal antedotes are a great added touch.
The most important information is that the meals are healthy. Since most of us are trying to cut back on the heavy meals, why not give it a try.
