Great Family Cookbook,
This review is from: Made With Love: The Meals On Wheels Family Cookbook (Hardcover)
Made With Love is a gem of a cookbook. I have tried nearly all the recipes in it and I love reading the accompanying stories before I cook. We break bread to socialize and so many memories are created around the dinner table, the stories are a good reminder of the importance of eating together.
There are some star recipes that I have flagged as my favorites.
Marshall Chapman's West African Peanut Soup with Chicken will definitely be made frequently in my house. It was healthy, hearty, and easy to make. There were absolutely no leftovers that night - it's the kind of dish you think about days after it's eaten.
Fran Drescher's House Chicken recipe was very simple, but impressively flavorful and I wouldn't hesitate serving it to guests. I bet the leftovers would be great sandwich material.
Susan Orleans' Sugar & Spiced Baked Shrimp had a delightful crisp coating and an explosion of flavor when eaten. The sweet and spicy created good contrast, I loved that recipe.
Joan Rivers' recipe made me laugh for days. But I won't reveal what it is!
There are stories and recipes from all sorts of cool celebrities and a photo illustrating almost every dish. I'll be giving this as a gift to my parents and grandparents, it's a great family cookbook that I know will get a lot of use.
