The Farm Wife in the Kitchen - Cookbook
Meal Time is for FamiliesOur clan loves to cook, and we view meal time as family time. Holidays revolve around meals. There is always room for family, friends and neighbors, and often the table is full to overflowing.
The food is simple. Meals are fun. Conversation and laughter flow, almost as fast as the food is consumed. The table is crowded with meats, vegetables, salads, and relishes. Everyone is welcome. Our hope is they all come hungry and leave well fed and happy.
Recipes & FamilyThe Farm Wife In the Kitchen is primarily a collection of family recipes. Thanks to my generous siblings, a few new ones have been tossed in. My brother Mark, and sister Amie, contributed a few of the newer ones. Each one they submitted is delicious enough to be adopted into the family food traditions. The remaining recipes come from Aunt Dot, Aunt Evelyn, Mom, Dad, me, and other family members and friends.
The Farm Wife In the Kitchen does include a few recipes which can be found on my website, or have been shared in my newspaper column (these are what I would consider ‘signature’ recipes, such as Aunt Dot’s Hot Rolls, Apple Pie with Cheese Crust, and Lemonade), but most are not. The rest are exclusive to this book.
I hope you enjoy each and every one of them. As you prepare each recipe, please be sure to add that little secret ingredient that blends everything together to create the perfect flavor: LOVE
