Hubby will be working on Saint Patrick's day, so we are celebrating today. It is funny, I never make the same meal. Even Christmas and Thanksgiving is always do something different. But Saint Patrick's day we always have the same menu.
Congratulations to Hunnybunny for winning Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone. I will e-mail you !!!!
This weeks book is The Lazy Days Of Summer Cookbook by Jane Watson Hopping. I know summer is not for a while but I thought who ever won could use a dose of summer dreaming. I really like Jane's books because they are more of a good read about how life use to be in the good-old-days, then a cookbook. Although it is an excellent cookbook but a wonderful read at the same time. Here is a review and good luck xoxoxox
"From Publishers Weekly
With another whimsical collection of poetry, prose and food, Pioneer Lady & Hopping ( The Country Mother's Cookbook ) again evokes a simple era when meals, family and farm life represent the American ideal--at least, in retrospect. While fishing holes and picnic spots and watermelons lying thick in the patch just waiting to be thumped are this volume's backdrop, Hopping's new collection strongly resembles her previous writings. From Effie's strawberry mousse and sweet-cherry crunch to sour-cream red June apple pie with butter-cinnamon topping, the recipes are simple and the dishes themselves very good. Yet the flavor of many depends mightily on the kind of just-picked-from-the-patch freshness nearly impossible to duplicate in the supermarket produce section. Still, the charm of the book hinges largely upon the richness of Hopping's words and her prolific, romantic recollections of the mothers who fortified their families--without guilt or trepidation--with endless batches of cookies, tea cakes, fruit pies and other sweets, the recipes for which are the fabric of her food writings.
