The day after I received this cookbook, I used the recipes to make cole slaw and the lemon pound cake. I have a love-hate relationship with cole slaw. Usually it is so creamy you can't appreciate the flavor of the veggies in it. David's recipe was perfect for me, it contains red onions and red cabbage, which spice it up, and the apple cider vinegar mixed with mayo and just the right amount of sugar and celery seed enhanced the mix of veggies, rather than covering it up. As for the lemon pound cake... OH, MY, GOSH! If you love lemon, if you love a rich, buttery pound cake, you have to try this recipe! My husband said, just from the pound cake recipe, the price of the book is justified. This book is filled with David Venable's wonderful, friendly enthusiasm for food and family, and the lavish color photographs provide a lot of inspiration to try out the recipes.
