Editorial Reviews

Review

From their beginning in the 1860's, community cookbooks have empowered women, raised untold millions of dollars for thousands of charitable causes, and preserved regional and ethnic culinary traditions in America. Historians and cooks are grateful to Sheila Thomas and the team at Favorite Recipes Press, whose passion for these books - the dedicated volunteers who make them possible and the recipes they preserve - has resulted in this volume, RECIPES WORTH SHARING lives up to its subtitle...Recipes and Stories from America's Most-Loved Community Cookbooks. --Jan Longone, Curator, American Culinary History, Clements Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Wow! What a fabulous collection of recipes! And many recipes can be easily and successfully followed by everyday cooks. Just as important, RECIPES WORTH SHARING celebrates the art form of the community cookbook and honors the volunteers who have chipped in their best recipes. Long may community cookbooks and their contributors thrive and inspire home cooks. --Andrew F. Smith, Editor in Chief, The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink

RECIPES WORTH SHARING, a celebration of home cooking, reinstates the importance of the role of women in their kitchens as well as in their communities. This book stands as a testimony to the groups of women across America who have raised funds for charitable organization by producing cookbooks that feature favorite recipes. Producing cookbooks to help a good cause is a distinctly American phenomenon that benefits not only the cause but also those of us who cook from these wonderful books. --Barbara Haber, Curator, Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institue for Advanced Study

I recently picked up a cookbook at a conference called Recipes Worth Sharing by Favorite Recipes Press. It s a collection of the most prized, tried and true tested home cook recipes from some of the most popular regional community cookbooks and charitable organizations in America. I remember my Mom and Grandmother would occasionally cook from these spiral-bound community cookbooks and they usually made some type of yummy salad or casserole dish for a Sunday family brunch or neighborhood potluck supper. Usually these cookbooks go unappreciated or overlooked, but this one deserves to be noticed.
The reason I picked up this book was mainly because of the recipes themselves, not the beautiful photos which normally are what grab my attention when I pick up or buy a cookbook. The recipes are a collection of delicious comfort food, down-home favorites and are not particularly complicated to make but delicious all the same. A lot of these recipes remind of the Southern cooking I experienced and learned to make when I lived in Atlanta and made trips to Savannah, Charleston and New Orleans - lots of seafood, fresh veggies and salads, grilled and roasted meats, pasta dishes, homemade breads, pies and desserts, and of course the delicious creamy casseroles made out of basically EVERYTHING under the sun. The foods and recipes in this book are the ones that your Grandmother and Mother probably made too, and passed along to their friends at church, bridge club or the local junior league. Fussy and stuffy recipes they are not, but simple, delicious and comforting they are indeed.
The recipes in the book are organized in typical categories: Appetizers and Beverages, Breads and Brunch, Soups, Salads and Sandwiches, Entrees, Fish and Seafood, Vegetables and Sides, Cakes, Pies and Cookies, Desserts, and Kid s Recipes. I ve gone through the book and picked out a sampling of my favorite recipes below (a few from each category) to share with you. I hope you enjoy them and maybe even try a few for your next potluck party or family picnic. --Kristen Hess

I'll admit it; I'm a cookbook junkie and this is one of the best cookbooks I've ever invested in. It is a compilation of the favorite recipes from over 80 different regional cookbooks. You know, those cookbooks that community organizations put together with real tried and true recipes. You will love this cookbook! Try the Chicken Asiago with Hickory Smoked Bacon...it is to die for!

I'm constantly looking for quick and easy recipes which include fresh ingredients and every once in awhile an unusual flavor combination...and this one definately meets that need! From a traditional SUNDAY FAVORITE ROAST (which can be done in the oven or crockpot) to a BEER AND NUT GREEK BURGER (such a fabulous flavor) and my new favorite pasta dish TURKEY LASGNA WITH GOAT CHEESE & BASIL (absolutely awesome!) I keep coming back to this great collection of Mama's Best with a twist every once in a while. My 17-year-old daughter is using it just as much as me and together we are experiencing the "true joy of cooking" recipes that make sense, have everyday ingredients, with enough of a challenge to keep it intersting for the seasoned cook. This one is a true treasure trove!

I'm an amateur in the kitchen and I don't ever think I'll have the time/energy/money to reach foodie-gourmet-snob status. Nor do I want to. This book is full of pretty simple but DELICIOUS recipes.
I've made the Turkey, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna, the Seafood Gumbo, Homemade Mac N Cheese, and the Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce, and all were EASY. Most called for ingredients that I already had in the fridge or pantry. I'm tickled that I've not only found a great resource for the kitchen, but Christmas gifts for my friends & fam too. :)

I was at a cookbook fair in southern Alabama a few weeks back, this cookbook caught my attention because the Lemon Gingersnap recipe was a winner in the recipe contest which the recipe had to use an Alabama Product-I went to check the cookbook out and could not believe the wonderful recipes I found as I browsed through the book. The Lemon Gingersnaps were available for tasting and they are some of the most unique and delicious cookies I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I purchased a copy for myself - but now only after a week of using this book full of family favorite recipes, I am purchasing additional copies for Christmas gifts for my sister and friends who love to cook. I am a huge fan of charity cookbooks and these recipes are all from cookbooks all over. I can't wait to try a few recipes tonight. LOVE this cookbook!

If you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift or if you just like to curl up in your favorite chair with a great cookbook, this is the one! Everything I have tried is delicious and easy to make! The recipes and the presentation will take you back in time to happy memories. You can almost smell the delicious aromas coming from your Mama's kitchen. This is a beautiful book you will want to add to your collection and you will want several to give for gifts!!

I am a cookbook addict, so I have dozens and dozens that looked good when I bought them, but most end up sitting on the shelf. I use this one all the time. I have bought it as a gift for several of my friends, new cooks and long time cooks both --- and most recently, bought the newest edition "More recipes worth sharing". Well worth the investment and a great resource in the kitchen.
