Arranged seasonally, celebrating real unprocessed food, the recipes are simple, inspiring and delicious. From your family's everyday sandwich bread to meatballs to treats like apple cinnamon layer cake, this book is for the home cook wanting to serve family recipes with love.
Very large soft cover and pages stay open. The recipes are easy to read and there are pictures.
I love cornmeal pancakes. I grew up on them with a simple hot water recipe.
I love her recipe with whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, and cornmeal in equal portions. The honey-orange syrup is very good and I made it with 1/2 cup honey instead of 1 cup as I want to make it fresh each time. I also added a little maple syrup to fill up the half cup. It made 9 pancakes and if the 1/2 cup wasn't enough I just used more maple syrup.
The Eton Rhubarb Eton Mess is a good recipe and you can switch out the fruit. I did not use heavy cream.
Lots of advice on many natural ways to do things and grow your own when you can.
