Recipes From: The Box in the Closet Under the Stairs Hardcover-spiral – Unabridged, 2014
A collection of time honored recipes lovingly gathered from the “Box in the Closet Under the Stairs.” The box of vintage recipes was discovered in the closet of the Carmichael farmhouse while the three daughters, Ruth, Laura, and Mary, cared for their terminally ill mother. This book is a compilation of favorite recipes from four generations of family cooks. The best-selling story, “The Box Under the Stair”, by Award-Winning inspirational Author, Ruth Carmichael Ellinger, was the catalyst for publishing this collection of recipes and this touching story is included in the book. The beautiful art sketches of Mariam Stampfle are pictured on the category inserts and were sketched at the family farm in rural Ohio. Also included are bits of nostalgia clipped from a variety of sources and added to the box over the years. This addition makes this cookbook a good read at any time. Brief personal sketches of two grandmothers, one who was the spirited protagonist in the inspirational novel by Ellinger, “The Wild Rose of Lancaster” and gives the reader a window into the past when a great deal of time was spent in the kitchen, especially around the family table. "I believe that we have touched a common thread that links every generation together," Ellinger said. "It is all about family and the ties that bind them together and especially around the family table. There is something very special about preserving a family's legacy through their own favorite recipes. This book makes a wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys making “scratch” recipes or for those who simply love to read and collect cookbooks.

Don’t look for slow cook recipes or fast-food here, but expect the old fashioned taste of comfort food from the farm. These recipes are simple to follow and mouth watering to enjoy.
There are twelve soups and every single one is delicious. Breads, salads, side dishes, and main courses that will be around for generations. There are also jams, jellies, candy, pastries, pies, and many forms of butter. No, not that kind of butter, but apple butter, apricot-orange butter, honey-peach butter and many more.
I highly recommend this cookbook for yourself or as a wonderful gift.
As far as flavor, I have so far made the "Mostaccioli with Garlic and Summer Vegetables," "Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta Cheese," "Honey Mustard Chicken," and the "Meatballs." All were so delicious and beautiful when prepared. I had never made meatballs without breadcrumbs! This book called for cubed white bread, keeping true to that "from scratch" theme. If thats not your thing, you can always substitute but I found it to be delicious and not that much more work. Love this cookbook.
