5.0 out of 5 stars Good things come in pretty packages, February 8, 2009
This review is from: Peace Meals (Hardcover)
Never underestimate a cookbook compiled by Junior Leaguers. I've always thought the best recipes are the ones that are used frequently and have passed family taste tests over generations - recipes saved on 3x5 notecards, scraps of yellowed paper, and torn out pages from Better Homes and Gardens. These recipes make up most of the dishes in the spiral bound Lubbock Junior League cookbook (circa 1973) that sits dog-eared and food stained on our kitchen counter. Now Peace Meals sits on our counter too, and I hope it becomes as battered and well-used as it's panhandle predecessor. Though many of this book's recipes are decidedly more multicultural and upscale than the casserole and pot roast plates of my youth, they are no less effective. Peace Meals has a beautiful cover and a simple yet elegant design. Oh, and don't forget to read the forward - a wistful reflection of meals gone by that sets the table for this celebration of good food and shared repasts. Two flour dusted thumbs up!
