The author's comments before each recipe bring back many memories from the time of each recipe.It adds such fun to each recipe.
We still make the marshmallow fudge at Christmas time. I can't wait to make the macaroni beef and tomato casserole I could taste it as I read the recipe and we don't eat wonderful casseroles like this anymore.
Buy this book now & enjoy these lovely recipes.
Sounds simple right? Look around at a few others and you'll realize it's not.
Each recipe is outlined in the Table of Contents and sectioned by type - Main Dishes for example. Chapters are introduced with a Title and photo, which I found very helpful and enjoyable when reading this Kindle cookbook.
On each recipe page you find a recipe title, ingredients, preparation, and (a rarity in Kindle self-published cookbooks...) nutritional information for each recipe (per serving). That last part took this cookbook from a 4 to a 5 star for me! Serving size and a brief author's introduction relating to her family and the era from which the recipe came, added a nice touch to each recipe.
Directions are simple, easy to follow and clearly written. Ingredients are simple, and easy to find at your local market.
Truly, I find this recipe book a delight, and would happily recommend it to others. Well done!
The thing I enjoyed most about it was the brief story and timeline that the author wrote prior to giving each recipe. If you were born in the late 60's or early 70's you will find yourself smiling when you read read each recipe introduction from remembering that time of your youth.
Many of these recipes were completely new to me. I came from a family that cooked primarily Italian recipes and foods that were handed down from my grandparents when they came over from Italy. However, I was able to find a few recipes that I did grow up eating such as the Walnut Rum Balls, Potato Croquettes and Chicken Pot Pie. I was especially happy to find the Walnut Rum Ball recipe as this is something my mother made every Christmas in our house and I do not have the recipe for it.
I can't imagine anyone that grew up in the era this book spans through that won't enjoy reminiscing while they find a favorite new recipe or an old tried and true one.
The Freeze & Eat Later Cole Slaw sounds intriguing. The Parmesan Green Beans and the Spinach and Grapefruit Salad sound delicious, as does the recipe for Beef Stew. Judging from the comments the author made, she and I are probably the same age. I found it interesting that many of the recipes were VERY similar to dishes I had growing up. The Norwegian Walnut Bread baked in cans reminded me of a recipe for Beer Bread that my mother baked in a coffee can. And the Tamale Pie is very similar to one that I used to make for my children. Ah, memories!

I have enjoyed cooking some of the recipes in this book. Recipes that your grandma, mother, aunt cooked that you still can taste and smell are more than likely here. Read morePublished on May 8, 2014 by S. Kilborn
